BioSyent Pharma Launches New Proktis-M® Suppositories

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 24, 2014) - BioSyent Inc. ("BioSyent") (TSX VENTURE:RX) today announced that its subsidiary BioSyent Pharma Inc. has commenced the Canadian launch of Proktis-M® suppositories.

Proktis-M® (sodium hyaluronate) rectal suppository is designed to help healing of the anus and rectum. Proktis-M® has been studied and tested in conditions such as operated severe internal hemorrhoids, anal fissures, and prevention of radiation induced proctitis.

Proktis-M® is formulated with sodium hyaluronate - a naturally occurring compound - and sets in place a temporary matrix to facilitate cell proliferation and thus enhancing wound healing. It can be used in combination with other products or alone to help on the above conditions. Proktis-M® is supported by clinical evidence, and has been successfully used to treat men and women in several European countries.

"The launch of Proktis-M® is yet another milestone in the development of the BioSyent Pharma business," commented René Goehrum, CEO of BioSyent. "Proktis-M® is our fifth marketed pharmaceutical product and represents a further broadening of our portfolio. We are also in full preparation for the launch of our sixth product in the first quarter of 2015."

Proktis-M® is approved by Health Canada and was in-licensed by BioSyent Pharma for exclusive marketing and distribution in Canada from FARMA-DERMA s.r.l., Italy in March of 2014.
