Orexo invites to a Zubsolv™ (OX219) information meeting on September 21 in Stockholm

Uppsala, September 17, 2012 – Orexo today announces the invitation of analysts, investors and media to an information meeting about Zubsolv™ (OX219), a product developed for treatment of opioid dependence, this coming Friday September 21.

Date:            Friday, September 21 2012
Time:            10:00am-1:00pm (lunch included)
Place:           ABG, Sundal Collier AB, Regeringsgatan 65, 5 floor, Stockholm
RSVP:          registration ASAP to [email protected]

As previously announced, Orexo submitted on September 5 a New Drug Application (NDA) to the FDA for Zubsolv™ (OX219), a novel combination product of buprenorphine and naloxone for treatment of opioid dependence, 5 months ahead of schedule. Opioid dependence is today affecting more than two million US citizens, and is a consequence of the substantial use of Rx-opioids for moderate and severe pain conditions in US as well as the widespread non-medical use of Rx-opioids. The earlier submission is expected to be of major commercial importance, as it provides a potential launch of Zubsolv in the third quarter of 2013 – ahead of other branded competitors.

With the NDA submission completed, Orexo’s CEO, Anders Lundström will provide company insights related to the specific market dynamics, which Zubsolv will be competing in. In addition, the company will present details of the continued development activities for the product, which have been designed and are being implemented. The primary objectives of these activities are to achieve a clear differentiation and prescriber understanding for the attributes that Zubsolv present, and to leverage the products competitive advantages in the US market place.

The presentation will be posted at Orexos homepage, www.orexo.com, following the meeting.
