Pharmascience Canada markets generic Prpms-PAZOPANIB tablets

After Pharmascience International, it is now Pharmascience Canada’s turn to launch Prpms-PAZOPANIB on the Canadian market in 200 mg tablets. The generic equivalent is Votrient®.

Prpms-PAZOPANIB is used to treat adult patients with:

  • Metastatic renal cell (clear cell) carcinoma (mRCC), a type of kidney cancer whose cancer cells have spread from the kidney to other parts of the body.
  • Selective subtypes of advanced soft tissue sarcoma in patients who have received prior chemotherapy. Soft tissue sarcoma is a type of cancer that occurs in muscles, blood vessels or other tissues that support, surround and protect the organs.

With the same safety and efficacy profile to the brand-name product, Prpms-PAZOPANIB is available at a lower cost. Financial assistance is also available for eligible patients (outside Quebec).

“We are very proud to announce the launch of pms-PAZOPANIB offering Canadian patients a high-quality, cost-effective treatment of a critical medication. We continue to be committed to providing Canadians access to sustainable local supply of affordable medication,” said Mike Dutton, Vice President, and General Manager of Pharmascience Canada.
