SAN DIEGO, Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adamis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ: ADMP) (“Adamis”) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has approved Adamis’ lower dose version (0.15mg) of Symjepi ™ for the emergency treatment of allergic reactions (Type I) including anaphylaxis.
Dr. Dennis J. Carlo, President and CEO of Adamis, stated, “The approval of the lower dose form of Symjepi represents another milestone for the company. We are working closely with Sandoz to bring this product to market and hope that it, along with the higher (0.3mg) version, will be well received in the market.”
Symjepi (epinephrine) Injection 0.3mg is an FDA-approved product, for the emergency treatment of allergic reactions (Type I) including anaphylaxis, designed for patients weighing 66 pounds or greater. The lower dose version (0.15mg) is intended to potentially treat patients weighing 33-66 pounds. Both Symjepi products will provide two single-dose injections syringes of epinephrine (adrenaline), which is considered the drug of choice for immediate administration in acute anaphylactic reactions to allergic reaction to foods (such as nuts), insect stings or bites, drugs and other allergens, as well as idiopathic or exercise-induced anaphylaxis.
