Dr Rondeau (co investigateur of the SALIVA trial – neuro- pediatrician at the center for early medico-social action (CAMSP) of the Rouen University Hospital), commented:
“The medical and paramedical teams who manage children with neurodevelopmental disorders impatiently awaited the arrival in France of a treatment adapted to the management of drooling in children. The use of Sialanar® during the SALIVA clinical study was a great opportunity for us to discover and try the product. The study against placebo has measured the impact on drooling reduction, associated adverse events and activities such as social interactions. After this first step which give us the possibility to use the product at the hospital, we are strongly hoping a quick and favorable outcome for reimbursement in community pharmacies.”
Dr Simon Bryson, CEO and founder of Proveca Ltd, commented:
“We are delighted to announce that Sialanar® is now accessible to children in France. As in many countries across the world there is a high unmet need to manage this condition and improve the quality of the lives of patients and their carers. This is a significant country in the European Union for Sialanar® and as part of our commercialisation strategy to optimise access of our products across the world.”
