Access to improved AdenocaineTM solution, a ready to administer heart arrest and cardioprotection innovation, is immediately available to hospitals nationwide
SUGAR LAND, Texas – December 9, 2019 – QuVa Pharma, Inc. today announced it has signed a production and distribution agreement with Hibernation Therapeutics for its patented cardioplegia solution AdenocaineTM, the combination of Adenosine, Lidocaine and Magnesium Sulfate, that is used to intentionally stop the heart from beating during cardiac surgery, and is immediately taking orders.
“Improved access to Adenocaine has enormous potential to help health systems and their patients undergoing cardiac surgery, and represents continued progress of QuVa’s larger commitment to improving access to specialized, ready-to-use product offerings like those for cardioplegia,” said Stuart Hinchen, QuVa Pharma’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer.
“Expanding quality production and shelf-life of Adenocaine is a critical component of our commitment to improving heart surgery outcomes, said Todd Meyerrose, PhD, CEO of Hibernation Therapeutics. “By exceeding regulatory standards for pharmaceutical quality with its cGMP manufacturing capabilities, demonstrating superior product development processes and offering national distribution across all 50 states, QuVa is an excellent partner to expand access to our natural, reproducible form of myocardial protection during invasive procedures.”
Peter Jenkins, QuVa’s co-founder and Chief Development Officer, added, “Adenocaine is an important addition to our comprehensive portfolio of compounded sterile products (CSPs), as now hospital pharmacies can take advantage of a sterile, ready-to-use formulation of the Adenosine, Lidocaine and Magnesium Sulfate combination with important characteristics in helping hospital pharmacy reduce waste and increase operational efficiency, like a significantly longer shelf life at room temperature storage compared to the previously available version.”
