PAION SUBMITS EXTENSION APPLICATION OF MARKETING AUTHORIZATION FOR REMIMAZOLAM IN THE INDICATION GENERAL ANESTHESIA TO THE EUROPEAN MEDICINES AGENCY

Aachen (Germany), 31 December 2021 - The Specialty Pharma Company PAION AG (FSE: PA8) today announces that PAION has submitted an extension application to the Marketing Authorization for remimazolam (Byfavo(R)), PAION's ultra-short-acting intravenous benzodiazepine sedative/anesthetic, for the indication general anesthesia to the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

The European Commission approved remimazolam in the EU (including European Economic Area (EEA) countries) for procedural sedation in March 2021. Based on the positive results in the EU Phase III trial in general anesthesia, PAION has now submitted an extension application to the marketing authorization for remimazolam in the indication of general anesthesia. A decision by the EMA is expected at the end of 2022 or beginning of 2023.

"The submission of the extension application to the Marketing Authorization in general anesthesia is another important milestone for PAION as we continue to expand our European hospital product portfolio, as the need for safe and effective anesthetics, especially for complex surgeries and high-risk patients, is growing in Europe," said Dr. Jim Phillips, CEO of PAION AG. "Remimazolam has already been approved for general anesthesia in Japan and South Korea. We now look forward to working with the EMA during the review process with the goal of making remimazolam available to patients in Europe in this indication as soon as possible."
