SK Chemicals receives FDA approval for SID710

Nov 28,2019
SK Chemicals said Wednesday it has won approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to sell its patch-type Alzheimer’s drug in the United States.

SID710, the generic drug referencing Novartis AG’s Exelon Patch to treat dementia symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease, received the green light from the FDA.

The approval marked the first time a South Korean company has applied for FDA approval for an Alzheimer’s patch on its own and received it.
