EVA Pharma Launches the First Egyptian Generic for Type 2 Diabetes Treatment Diaflozimet® Tablets


Cairo, October 12, 2020 – EVA Pharma announced the launch of Diaflozimet® tablets after having received approval from the Egyptian Drug Authority (EDA). Diaflozimet® is the first Egyptian generic that contains (dapagliflozin and metformin hydrochloride extended-release), which is indicated for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. The drug combines two anti-hyperglycemic agents with complementary mechanisms of action, dapagliflozin, an inhibitor of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2), and metformin hydrochloride (HCl) extended-release, a biguanide, is a once-daily oral tablet. According to clinical studies, the combination is proven effective in rapidly controlling blood glucose levels with a 3% reduction of HbA1C, up to 3.3Kg weight reduction, blood pressure reduction and protecting the kidney, heart, blood vessels and liver against diabetes complications.

 

This is a very promising treatment from many aspects” said Dr. Abbas Oraby, professor of endocrinology and member of the National Committee for Endocrinology and Diabetes of the Ministry of Health and Population. “SGLT2 inhibitors release glucose from the body via the kidneys; in addition to recent studies proving its effectiveness in improving heart and kidney functions which is vital for diabetic patients since 50% of renal dialysis patients are diabetic. While metformin improves cardiac functions by 15% in addition to its abilities to lower blood glucose levels and to inhibit liver cirrhosis and the deterioration of insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Thus the combination of both active ingredients supports a more personalized approach to disease management, as it reduces the number of pills the diabetic patients need to take leading to better compliance. Also, as EVA Pharma is producing Diaflozimet® in four concentrations, the physician has the choice of more personalized doses to his patients.”

FDA Broadens Emergency Use Authorization for Remdesivir to Include All Hospitalized Patients for Treatment of COVID-19


  • The authorization will include mild and moderate, adult, and pediatric patients after being inclusive of severe cases.
  • According to recent studies, the drug reduces the mortality rate to less than 2%, accelerates recovery, and shortens hospitalization time.
  • Dr. Hossam Hossny: “The results of using Remdesivir in Egypt match the global results; I expect the World Health Organization to broaden the sphere of Remdesivir use furthermore.”

 

Cairo, September 1, 2020 – “EVA Pharma’s Remdesivir achieves positive global results and we are equipped to cooperate with many authorities to provide all needed quantities in Egypt and more than 100 countries” Dr. Riad Armanious, CEO.

Remdesivir granted broader authorization by the American Food and Drug Administration upon recent clinical studies which show its effect on accelerating COVID-19 patients’ recovery, not only in severe cases but also in mild and moderate conditions.

In its recent report, the FDA stated that the known potential benefits of Remdesivir outweigh its risks. Thus, the broader use authorization of the antiviral is based on a clinical trial conducted by the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases investigating 1062 hospitalized COVID-19 patients. The study showed the median time to recovery was 10 days for the Remdesivir group compared to 15 days for the placebo group. Other clinical trials have revealed a reduced mortality rate to less than 2% when patients are treated with Remdesivir.

Hosny anticipated that WHO broadens the indication of Remdesivir use in the future based on its benefits to mild and moderate conditions.

Egypt is one of the first countries to benefit from the use of Remdesivir after the licensing agreement between Gilead Sciences and EVA Pharma, allowing the company to be one of the first 3 facilities to manufacture the drug worldwide.

Following the FDA report and clinical studies, Dr. Riad Armanious, EVA Pharma CEO, emphasized his company’s keenness to provide Egypt and more than 100 countries with their needs of Remdesivir-EVA Pharma®.

“Throughout 5 years of work and consulting German expertise, we have been able to manufacture this high-quality product,” said one of the researchers at EVA Pharma on Inhalex.

“Inhalex reduces the cost of treatment to half.” said Dr.Ashraf Hatem, member of the High Committee for Respiratory Viruses at the Ministry of Higher Education & Scientific Research, the former Minister of Health and Population “As smokers, secondhand smokers and who are exposed to severe pollution are the most affected, this treatment helps COPD patients breathe normally throughout the day.”

In his press statement earlier today, Dr.Hatem said that the disease prevalence is 5-10% of the population, estimating that 10 million Egyptians suffer from COPD & it’s prevalent not only in Egypt but also globally.

The Egyptian drug “Inhalex”, a generic product for a similar previously imported drug, will reduce the patient’s treatment cost to half, as it’s a medicine that has to be administered daily for a lifetime.

Hatem added, “COPD patients had no other option but to buy the imported drug, to help them breathe normally to be able to do their daily activities. The Egyptian “Inhalex” will provide an affordable treatment, regular availability in the Egyptian market and a 24-hour lasting effect of the treatment”

“COPD patient needs this treatment for life; it is important for the patient to have a generic drug similar to the imported treatment in the Egyptian market with an affordable price since the imported drug is double the cost of the Egyptian Inhalex” stated Hatem.

He also emphasized the importance of asthma and COPD patients’ adherence to their daily treatment to avoid exacerbation of viral infections including the COVID-19 and to have fewer effects in case the patients have a viral exacerbation.

Hatem valued the efforts made by EVA Pharma to produce this drug in Egypt, including importing the pharmaceutical active ingredients and the apparatus used to inhale the active ingredient, along with high manufacturing quality. Illustrating that “a good generic product attracts the patient due to its effectiveness and affordability.”

 

EVA Pharma, one of the major multinational pharmaceutical companies headquartering in Cairo while operating in more than 40 countries, is currently launching “Inhalex” in the national market. The new drug “Inhalex” has the same quality as the imported drug with a 50% price reduction. And EVA Pharma is able to provide any required quantity to the national market, along with international export” said Dr. Mina Henien, a senior R&D manager at EVA Pharma’s Mounir Armanious Research Center (MARC).

 

He added that EVA Pharma owns a set of laboratories that ensures the product’s quality, as Inhalex was tested on an artificial lung to ensure the product’s high effectiveness as part of the testing process applied at the top international companies of the pharmaceutical field. Henien explained that EVA Pharma has been examining the manufacturing of this drug 5 years ago, while delegates from the company traveled to Kiel University in Germany to share their experience in this field for the highest international manufacturing quality. The new drug delivers the active constituent directly to the lung via an inhaler that is included in each package of Inhalex, thus ensuring optimal treatment effectiveness for the patient.
