Pharmascience Canada launches another generic drug with multiple indications

Pharmascience Canada launches the generic Prpms-TOFACITINIB in the Canadian market.

Prpms-TOFACITINIB is used to treat adult patients who suffer from:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
    Prpms-TOFACITINIB, in combination with methotrexate (MTX), is indicated for reducing the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in adult patients with moderately to severely active RA who have had an inadequate response to MTX and to one or more disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs).
  • Psoriatic Arthritis
    Prpms-TOFACITINIB, in combination with methotrexate (MTX) or another conventional synthetic disease-modifying antirheumatic drug (DMARD), is indicated for reducing the signs and symptoms of psoriatic arthritis (PsA) in adult patients with active PsA when the response to previous DMARD therapy has been inadequate.
  • Ulcerative Colitis
    Prpms-TOFACITINIB is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis (UC) with an inadequate response, loss of response or intolerance to either conventional UC therapy or a TNFα inhibitor.

“At Pharmascience, we continue to strive in order to find and provide solutions for the evolving needs of all our patients. With the launch of Prpms-TOFACITINIB, the generic equivalent to PrXELJANZ®, we are helping bridge the gap and provide Canadians with more accessible, affordable options for these specialty drugs meant to treat rare and complex diseases,” said Mike Dutton, Vice President, and General Manager of Pharmascience Canada.

With the same safety and efficacy profile as the brand-name product, the  Prpms-TOFACITINIB 5 mg tablets are available at a lower cost. A Patient Support Program is offered to all patients, and, for eligible patients (outside Quebec), financial assistance is also available.
