BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM AND ESTEVE ENTER INTO A JOINT PROMOTION AGREEMENT TO HELP PATIENTS WITH NON-VALVULAR ATRIAL FIBRILLATION IN THE PREVENTION OF STROKE

Sant Cugat del Vallès (Barcelona) Boehringer Ingelheim and ESTEVE have reached an agreement after their first experience in respiratory care (undertaken with the same purpose and in the same year) whereby they enter into a joint promotion to share their commitment to improving the lives of patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) at risk of suffering a stroke. The two companies will work together to promote two treatments from Boehringer Ingelheim using the only direct oral anticoagulant with rapid reversal. The agreement involves simultaneously promoting two treatments from the German pharmaceutical company.

The two managing directors concurred: "It's a great opportunity". Timmo Andersen, Managing Director of Boehringer Ingelheim Spain, emphasized that "this agreement represents a collective challenge and is yet another demonstration of innovation, commitment and value by the two companies, always bearing in mind the benefit this has in patients with cardiovascular diseases".

In the words of Joseph Sullivan, Managing Director of ESTEVE Farma, "By placing its trust in our company again, Boehringer Ingelheim's helps us keep securing a wide range of solutions to help professionals better manage patient problems as well as to provide response to unmet medical needs."
