Treatment for Allergic Rhinitis
Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Announces New Data Presentations on Ryaltris at the ACAAI Annual Scientific Meeting 2018
MAHWAH, N.J., Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, a global pharmaceutical company, today announced that the company is presenting new data for for its leading respiratory pipeline candidate Ryaltris (rye – al’ – tris) (olopatadine hydrochloride [665 mcg] and mometasone furoate [25 mcg]), formerly GSP 301 Nasal Spray, at the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Annual Scientific Meeting 2018 (ACAAI 2018) in Seattle, Washington. Ryaltris is an investigational fixed-dose combination nasal spray intended for the treatment of seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR) in patients 12 years of age and older. Ryaltris has been conditionally accepted by the FDA as the brand name.
“Nearly 50% of people with SAR rely on multiple therapies to treat their symptoms,1 and this poly treatment approach may be ineffective or suboptimal for many of these patients,”2 said Mahboob Rahman, President and Chief Medical Officer at Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. “We look forward to sharing efficacy data, as well as long-term safety data on Ryaltris, at ACAAI 2018.”
