Allergy Therapeutics has decided to terminate its agreement with Lincoln Medical after careful consideration.
Manuel Llobet, Chief Executive Officer, said: "The board has decided that terminating the arrangement with Lincoln Medical is in the best interests of the company. Although disappointing to lose a product line, the Anapen contract did deliver a net positive return to the company.
"Diversification into other geographies and product in-licensing opportunities continue to be explored in line with the group's strategy for growth."
Anapen is an autoinjector of epinephrine commonly used by people with severe allergies and a risk of anaphylactic shock because they can be self-administered and are fast-acting.
