BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: BCRX) today announced the company has entered into an exclusive collaboration with Pint Pharma GmbH to register and promote ORLADEYO® (berotralstat) in the pan-Latin America (LATAM) region.

“We are pleased to join forces with Pint Pharma to bring our oral, once-daily therapy to hereditary angioedema patients in LATAM who are in need of a new treatment option.

“Our partnership with BioCryst is significant for Pint Pharma given the critical unmet need among HAE patients in LATAM who are seeking an innovative treatment option for this serious disease. ORLADEYO has successfully launched in multiple markets across the globe, and we are privileged to leverage our expertise to support BioCryst in introducing this prophylactic therapy to the region,” said David Munoz, chief executive officer and co-founder of Pint Pharma.

Under the terms of the agreement, Pint Pharma will be responsible for obtaining and maintaining all marketing authorizations and for commercializing ORLADEYO in the pan-LATAM region.
