TOKYO, Apr 23, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Eisai Co., Ltd. announced today that it has entered into an agreement to transfer the exclusive development and marketing rights for the non-opioid severe chronic pain treatment Prialt (ziconotide acetate) in Europe to Riemser Pharma GmbH.

Under the agreement, Eisai will transfer the exclusive development and marketing rights for Prialt to Riemser, and Eisai will receive a one-time contractual payment from Riemser as consideration.

By accelerating the development of its innovative new drugs in these areas and pursuing optimal business models to match regional characteristics, Eisai seeks to contribute further to addressing the diverse needs of, and increasing the benefits provided to, patients and their families all over the world.
