BPL receives orphan drug marketing authorization for Coagadex® in Mexico

ELSTREE, England, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bio Products Laboratory (BPL), a leading manufacturer of plasma-derived protein therapies, based in Elstree, UK, announced today it has received orphan drug marketing authorization for Coagadex® in Mexico.

Coagadex® is the first and only treatment specifically for Hereditary Factor X Deficiency, a very rare inherited clotting disorder that causes problems with blood clotting due to not having enough Factor X in the blood. People with Factor X Deficiency can have serious and life-threatening bleeding episodes.

This approval is critical to meet the needs of Mexican patients, where currently there is little epidemiological information on ultra-rare bleeding disorders and there is limited knowledge of the disease among health professionals¹.

This is the second milestone in Mexico for BPL, who announced in December its first ever direct sale in Mexico of Zenalb® 20%, another important supply that is critical to meet the needs of Mexican patients who will benefit from albumin.

Bob RossilliChief Commercial Officer, Global Business, said, “BPL continues its focus on delivering high-quality and clinically differentiated medicines like Coagadex® to new markets around the world and we are honored that this designation means we can soon bring to market another of our life-enhancing products to patients in Mexicoin addition to Zenalb® twenty%.

BPL continues to strengthen its global commercial presence by launching products into new markets – as demonstrated by the recent news that BPL was granted its first ever approval for a BPL product, Albuminex® 25% off China – the largest albumin market globally.

Thank you to all those involved for the great collaborative work during a long journey to make another success happen to benefit patients in Mexico and around the world.”

Leonard TorresGeneral Manager for BPL Mexicosaid, “We are delighted with this key success for BPL. In addition to our first product delivery of Zenalb® 20% this year in Mexicowe will soon be able to provide Coagadex®which is of major importance for patients suffering from Hereditary Factor X Deficiency in the country and is another example of GLP’s commitment to enhance patients’ lives and serve more people who depend on our products.”
