Insys Therapeutics Issues Statement on Its Use of Specialty Pharmacies

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Oct 26, 2015) - Insys Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSY) ("Insys" or "the Company") today issued a statement on the Company's use of specialty pharmacies:

  • Insys distributes Subsys through both specialty and traditional retail pharmacies. All pharmacies that fulfill Subsys prescriptions are fully independent. 
  • The Company's relationships with every pharmacy that fulfills Subsys prescriptions are non-exclusive, in that each of these pharmacies may also fulfill prescriptions for other pharmaceutical manufacturers.
  • Insys does not own or have any ownership interest in any pharmacy and does not possess an option to acquire any pharmacy. 

About Insys Therapeutics, Inc.
Insys Therapeutics is a specialty pharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes innovative drugs and novel drug delivery systems of therapeutic molecules that improve the quality of life of patients. Using proprietary sublingual spray technology and capabilities to develop pharmaceutical cannabinoids, Insys addresses the clinical shortcomings of existing commercial products. Insys currently markets two products: Subsys® (fentanyl sublingual spray), and a generic version of Dronabinol (THC) capsules. The Company recently submitted a New Drug Application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for Dronabinol Oral Solution, a proprietary, orally administered liquid formulation of dronabinol that Insys believes has distinct advantages over the current formulation of dronabinol in soft gel capsule. Insys is developing a pipeline of sublingual sprays, as well as pharmaceutical cannabidiol.
