Trappsol® Cyclo has received Orphan Drug designation from the U.S. FDA and is used in the experimental treatment of children for Nieman Pick Type C disease.

Sales of Aquaplex® products continued to grow and showed a large increase due to the receipt of a large order from a large Aquaplex® customer.
