Shirley, N.Y., January 6, 2020 – American Regent Animal Health, a division of American Regent, Inc., manufacturer of Adequan® i.m. (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan) for horses announces a new partnership with Animalcare Group plc to relaunch Adequan i.m. in Europe.

Through the exclusive distribution agreement with American Regent Animal Health, Animalcare Group plc will work toward relaunching Adequan i.m. in Europe and selected markets following necessary regulatory approvals. Adequan i.m. has been unavailable for several years in Europe due to a supply issue that has now been fully resolved.

“We are excited to be working with American Regent Animal Health to bring this important product back to the market and look forward to relaunching it following necessary European regulatory review,” says Jenny Winter, CEO of Animalcare Group plc.

“The Animalcare partnership is an important first step in returning Adequan i.m. to veterinarians outside of North America,” says Andy Ferrigno, Head of Commercial Development for American Regent Animal Health. “We are working diligently with the team at Animalcare and regulatory officials toward a smooth relaunch in Europe, but we still have some work to do. A more definitive timeline for relaunch in Europe will be provided in the coming months.”

Adequan i.m. has been marketed in the United States for 30 years for the intramuscular treatment of non-infectious degenerative and/or traumatic joint dysfunction and associated lameness of the carpal and hock joints in horses.
