Meda enters partnership for Elestrin in the US market

| Source: Meda AB
Meda has entered into a promotion agreement with Mission Pharmacal, a company
active in the women’s health area, for Meda’s topical estrogen replacement
therapy product Elestrin.

Elestrin was acquired in 2012 from Jazz Pharmaceuticals and has showed good
growth since then. Following the enhanced focus of Meda's US sales force on the
allergy and respiratory area, the promotion agreement is a right step that will
secure ongoing resources and continued growth for Elestrin.

"Through this partnership, we optimize sales efforts for Elestrin and at the
same time increase our focus on the respiratory area", said Dr. Jörg-Thomas
Dierks, CEO of Meda AB.
