PAION AG’S PARTNER TTY BIOPHARM RECEIVES MARKET APPROVAL FOR REMIMAZOLAM IN PROCEDURAL SEDATION IN TAIWAN

  • TTY Biopharm is planning to launch this new sedative in December 2022

  • Approximately 1.3 million invasive medical procedures take place annually in Taiwan, of which ~50-80% use moderate sedation

  • PAION already has selected partnerships to license remimazolam in the US, EU/EEA/UK, China and South Korea for procedural sedation and in Japan and South Korea for general anesthesia, as well as in selected European markets

Aachen (Germany), 14 November 2022 – The specialty pharmaceutical company PAION AG (ISIN DE000A0B65S3; Frankfurt Stock Exchange, Prime Standard: PA8) today informs that the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) has approved remimazolam for injection for the induction and maintenance of procedural sedation in adults. This will allow for PAION’s partner TTY Biopharm Company Limited ("TTY") to launch remimazolam in December 2022 in this market. TTY Biopharm is a publicly listed pharmaceutical company with extensive expertise in the development and marketing of innovative pharmaceuticals.

Dr. Jim Phillips, CEO of PAION AG, commented: “We are very pleased to have found in TTY Biopharm an excellent partner for the development and commercialization of our lead product in Taiwan. Strengthened by TTY Biopharm's long-standing expertise, we are confident that we can optimally serve the attractive market potential offered to us in Taiwan in the field of anesthesia. The approval in the procedural sedation indication in Taiwan represents an important milestone in our partnership and underscores the long-term commitment to develop further important core markets and make the product available to patients around the world.”

TTY’s CEO, Sara Hou stated: “PAION formed in 2000 is a specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development of innovative drugs in the fields of anesthesia and critical care. Remimazolam, developed by PAION is an ultra-short-acting and predictable intravenous benzodiazepine sedative that has been approved and launched in many countries. Remimazolam is an important addition to the limited selection of drugs available for procedural sedation, which is a promising medicine for physicians and patients. PAION is TTY’s ideal partner and we are looking forward to our collaboration with PAION will provide a meaningful contribution to anesthesia and critical care.”
