Juno Pharmaceuticals Partners With Rosemont Pharmaceuticals as Exclusive Canadian Distributor to Offer Previously Inaccessible Medicines

Juno Pharmaceuticals Canada (“Juno”), a Canadian specialty pharmaceutical company, announced its partnership with U.K. based developer, manufacturer and global supplier of novel, Rx, oral liquid medicines, Rosemont Pharmaceuticals (“Rosemont”), as its exclusive Canadian distributor. Through this partnership, several of Rosemont’s oral liquid solutions will be filed with Health Canada in the coming months.

“As we continue to expand distribution, commercialization and manufacturing partnerships on a global scale, we are proud to be collaborating with Juno to supply these essential products to Canadian patients”

Oral liquid medicines can provide an easier to swallow, more appropriate formulation for patients with dysphagia (swallowing difficulties) or when requiring titration, which is a key concern in children, stroke patients, patients with dementia, patients with head and neck cancer, and people with intellectual disabilities.

“Many Canadians are unable to take solid dose tablets as prescribed, and alternative formulations are not readily available in the Canadian market,” says Mark Mantel, President and CEO of Juno. “This partnership will be instrumental to ensuring Canadian patients have access to the oral solutions that meet their unique needs, without sacrificing on medicinal quality.”

Rosemont brings over 50 years of experience in novel, Rx, oral liquid medicine and one of the broadest product portfolios in the world, with over 130 oral liquid medicines addressing a variety of therapeutic areas such as cardiac health, endocrinology, and pain management.

“As we continue to expand distribution, commercialization and manufacturing partnerships on a global scale, we are proud to be collaborating with Juno to supply these essential products to Canadian patients,” says Eric Vick, Chief Commercial Officer of Rosemont. “Together, we will continue creating innovative solutions that meet the needs of dysphagic patients and establish best practice for their care.”
