January 24th, 2022
The first-of-its-kind export is part of the companies’ participation in the French government’s program to regulate the medical cannabis industry
Both companies have previously issued their premium oils to patients in France
DÜSSELDORF, Germany and TEL AVIV, Israel, Jan. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Panaxia Labs Israel Ltd. (“Panaxia Israel”), (TASE: PNAX), a global pharma company which develops, manufactures and markets progressive medical cannabis products in pharmaceutical quality, and Neuraxpharm Group (Neuraxpharm), a leading European specialty pharmaceutical company focused on the central nervous system (CNS), announced today a first export of medical cannabis sublingual tablets from Israel to France.
The export is a part of a program by the French government and the French National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (ANSM) to regulate French medical cannabis industry. It follows the issue of the companies’ premium oils to patients in France, as part of the ANSM program.
Dr. Dadi Segal, CEO of Panaxia Israel: “We are glad of another significant milestone in the implementation of our strategy. We are proud to be, alongside our partner, Neuraxpharm, part of the spearhead of the world’s leading cannabis key-players selected for the ANSM program. In addition, we are the only company in this program to supply medical cannabis sublingual tablets. According to our predictions, the French market is expected to become one of the most advanced medical cannabis markets in the world, which will be a remarkable growth engine for Panaxia”.
Dr. Pierre-Hervé Brun, General Manager of Neuraxpharm France: “It is a great achievement for us, together with our partner Panaxia, to have been selected as one of the few specialists offering medical cannabis on the French market under the ANSM program. As the only companies in the program providing medical cannabis sublingual tablets, we are able to offer our patients a variety of patient-oriented and more easy-to-use forms of presentation. Going forward, we will continue to work with Panaxia to pursue our strategy in the fast-growing medical cannabis sector and bring more in-demand dosage forms and treatments to market.”
The sublingual tablets, manufactured by Panaxia under EU-GMP standard, subject to strict clinical standards with the brand name Naxiva-Panaxir, will be issued to patients participating in the French prescriptions program, in hospitals and pharmacies all over France.
Medical cannabis sublingual tablets enable a higher level of absorption of the active substances into the bloodstream (without initial passage through the liver) and thus, contribute to the effective and rapid relief to the patient. The tablets also enable physicians to adjust a more precise treatment routine to the patients. According to their needs, the level of the dosage as well as the concentration of the active ingredients can be adjusted. In addition, it has been proved that the tablets contribute to a better response to treatment and improved patient satisfaction, mainly due to the effectiveness of the treatment, the simplicity and accuracy of the usage.
The ANSM program, which was launched in March 2021, includes about 3,000 patients, who are receiving medical cannabis in France for the first time. The list of indications compiled by the ANSM includes the following diseases and treatments: Cancer, certain types of Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Palliative Care (treatments to improve the quality of life of patients with incurable diseases), and pain that does not respond to conventional treatment.
The market potential in France is very significant, considering only last year the French government approves the regulatory of the medical cannabis industry. According to the latest estimates, there are currently between 300,000 and 700,000 patients in France, who meet the criteria and may be eligible for a prescription for medical cannabis treatment.
