BLAINVILLE, QC, Sept. 13, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Duchesnay Inc. proudly announced today that it has entered into

a license and supply agreement with Medinova AG, a Swiss pharmaceutical company. The agreement grants Duchesnay exclusive Canadian rights to market FLUOMIZIN™, a product indicated for the treatment of vaginal infections.

FLUOMIZIN™ is a vaginal

tablet containing dequalinium chloride, a well-established anti-infection and antiseptic quinolone derivative used in the treatment of certain vaginal infections. Currently, there are no approved products in Canada containing dequalinium chloride for vaginal use. Duchesnay plans to submit a New Drug Application to Health Canada and will consult with the agency to ensure that all requirements are met prior to filing.

"Duchesnay is pleased to add FLUOMIZIN™ to its growing portfolio of women's health products. If approved, FLUOMIZIN™ has the potential to contribute to improving the health and quality of life of women who suffer from vaginal infections. This agreement with Medinova AG reinforces Duchesnay's position as a Canadian leader in women's health," explained Éric Gervais, Executive Vice President of Duchesnay.

"We are delighted to partner with Duchesnay to introduce FLUOMIZIN™ in Canada. FLUOMIZIN™ has been studied in extensive clinical trials and has already been approved in 39 countries across Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and Central America. We are much looking forward to adding Canada to the list of countries where Medinova's products will be present." says Frank Buennig, Managing Director of Medinova AG.
