Civica Rx Partners with Thermo Fisher Scientific to Develop and Manufacture Drugs with a History of Drug Shortages
Today announced it has signed a long-term agreement with Thermo Fisher Scientific to develop and manufacture medications with Civica as the owner of the regulatory pathway. By working with Thermo Fisher to develop Civica-owned Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs), Civica will secure the manufacture of certain essential medications, further mitigating the risk of drug shortages in the future. This partnership has an initial seven-year term and represents a key component of Civica’s manufacturing strategy. By partnering with Thermo Fisher, Civica will begin to build its internal pipeline of medications for use in emergency and critical care in the United States. To date, Civica has worked with multiple quality drug manufacturers that already have U.S. FDA approved manufacturing facilities and capacity to produce Civica labeled drugs in an effort to get shortage medications to market immediately.
