DUBAI, United Arab Emirates and SAN FRANCISCO, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- NewBridge Pharmaceuticals, a specialty pharmaceutical, biologics, and medical device company serving the Middle East, Africa, Turkey & Caspian regions, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive license and supply agreement with Axcan Pharma for Pylera(R), an innovative 3-in-1 capsule therapy for the eradication of Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium now recognized as being the main cause of gastric and duodenal ulcers. Pursuant to the agreement, NewBridge is entitled to obtain exclusive rights in certain markets where it obtains required regulatory approvals and launches the product. The product should be launched in Q4 2010.

Pylera(R), which was developed by Axcan over the last ten years, is a patented 3-in-1 capsule therapy. Each Pylera(R) capsule contains bismuth subcitrate potassium, metronidazole and tetracycline hydrochloride. Pylera(R) is clinically proven to be as effective as the most widely prescribed therapeutic regimen for the eradication of Helicobacter pylori (omeprazole, amoxicillin and clarithromycin) and has the potential to be used in a wide range of patients as a first-line therapy for the eradication of Helicobacter pylori based on its convenient 10-day treatment dosing regimen. Pylera(R) provides additional clinical benefit by improving patient compliance. Pylera(R) received FDA approval in September 2006 and was successfully launched in the United States in May 2007.

"In partnering with Axcan for the Pylera 3-in-1 capsule therapy for Helicobacter pylori eradication, NewBridge Pharmaceuticals advances further to become one of the key providers of innovative pharmaceutical care to the Middle East, Turkey, CIS and Africa," said Dr. Garrett Vygantas, CEO of NewBridge Pharmaceuticals.
