Stallergenes Greer, a biopharmaceutical company specialising in treatments for respiratory allergies, announces the positive outcome of the European decentralised registration procedure for its sublingual house dust mite (HDM) allergen immunotherapy tablet Actair®. The Paul-Ehrlich-Institut (PEI), Germany, acted as reference member state on behalf of 21 European countries. Each member state involved in the procedure will now issue individual national marketing authorisations at the end of their national phase.
“We are pleased to have achieved this significant milestone which demonstrates our commitment to patients and marks a major step forward for the company’s further development in the European market. Stallergenes Greer’s sublingual allergen immunotherapy tablet is an important option for people suffering from house dust mite-induced allergic rhinitis or rhinoconjunctivitis and illustrates our engagement to provide patients with a range of administration modes tailored to individual needs and profiles,” declares Michele Antonelli, Chief Executive Officer.
Stallergenes Greer offers a wide range of treatment options and is paving the way for personalised precision medicine-based allergen immunotherapy: tablet and liquid sublingual solutions as well as subcutaneous formulations.
The tablet is already registered in Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea under the brand name Actair® for treatment of moderate to severe house dust mite-induced allergic rhinitis or rhinoconjunctivitis.
This sublingual allergen immunotherapy (SLIT) tablet will strengthen the company’s tablet portfolio in Europe which already includes Oralair®.
