Diclectin is Now Available in the Palestinian Market

Ramallah, September 19, 2016 – Transmed Pharma has just added Diclectin (delayed-release combination of Doxylamine-Pyridoxine) to its distribution portfolio in preparation for launch in the Palestinian market. Manufactured by Duchesnay in Canada, Diclectin is indicated for the treatment of nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP), commonly known as “morning sickness” and is the most prevalent medical condition in pregnancy. Diclectin has a well-established efficacy and safety profile and is regarded as the standard of care for NVP in Canada, where it has been used for over 30 years and has been prescribed for more than 30 million women. In 2013, it was approved in the USA (under the name Diclegis) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with “Category A safety rating” for drugs used during pregnancy.

In Palestine, there are about 150,000 pregnancies in Palestine each year, and around 70% of women will suffer nausea and vomiting with severe symptoms in 30% of them. Transmed Pharma has been progressing Diclectin through the regulatory approval with the Palestinian Ministry of Health and anticipates the product's launch in the fourth quarter of 2016.
