M8 Pharmaceuticals Announces License of Exclusive Mexican Rights for Arlevert® from HENNIG ARZNEIMITTEL

Oct 05, 2021

m8 Pharmaceuticals and HENNIG ARZNEIMITTEL have signed an exclusive licensing agreement for the Mexican market for Arlevert®. Arlevert® is a fixed-dose oral combination of cinnarizine and dimenhydrinate indicated for different types of vertigo of various origin. This collaboration reinforces m8 Pharmaceuticals' and HENNIG ARZNEIMITTEL's mutual focus continue to promote innovative products to Mexican physicians and proven treatments to patients. Previous well-controlled clinical studies have demonstrated that Arlevert® has a significant efficacy profile, as measured by validated mean vertigo scores compared with placebo, betahistine and the component mono-therapies. Arlevert® has also been well-tolerated with minimum sedation. Moreover, the addition of Arlevert® to the m8 portfolio reinforces the company's position as a Latin American leader in the CNS and respiratory space.

"We are very extremely happy to license Arlevert® for the Mexican market, as vertigo is a frequent and complex challenge. The combination of the two molecules with different modes of action is an important innovation for addressing both the peripheral and central causes of vertigo" said Joel Barlan, m8's CEO.

Regarding the collaboration Kai Schleenhain, CEO of HENNIG ARZNEIMITTEL, said "We are very grateful to have found such a reliable and competent partner for promoting Arlevert® in Mexico. Patients with vertigo will benefit from the convincing and proven efficacy of Arlevert®. We wish m8 great success and look forward working together.".
