New territory licensed for Sofpironium Bromide with partner Kaken

Botanix has today announced that our partner Kaken Pharmaceutical Co Ltd, has secured a new sublicense and distribution agreement for Sofpironium Bromide in Korea.


The deal with Dong Wha Pharmaceuticals, Korea’s oldest pharmaceutical company, will see the expansion of Sofpironium Bromide into the Korean market. Sofpironium Bromide has been successfully marketed as ECCLOCK® by sublicensee Kaken in Japan since November 2020.


Under the terms of this agreement, Botanix will be entitled to a share of the upfront, milestone and royalty payments based on net sales of the products.


Botanix Executive Chairman, Vince Ippolito, said:
“We are very pleased with the progress being made by our partner Kaken in expanding the territories for Sofpironium Bromide commercialisation globally.

“Given the global incidence of primary axillary hyperhidrosis and the relative lack of effective solutions for patients, the opportunities for Sofpironium Bromide continue to expand beyond Botanix’s primary focus of the USA with our existing partner Kaken and new partners to come.”
