(TSX VENTURE:RX) ("BioSyent") is pleased to announce that its subsidiary BioSyent Pharma Inc. has signed an exclusive Canadian Licence and Distribution Agreement with an existing European partner for a gastrointestinal health product that has already been approved by Health Canada.
This licence agreement is with the same partner that will be supplying the women's health product that is being prepared for launch in the second quarter of this year. The new product has been approved in several European countries and is being successfully marketed there.
"Pre-launch preparations have commenced and we are planning for a Q4 2014 launch of this new gastrointestinal product," said René Goehrum, BioSyent CEO.
