Higher sales of drugs, Endu (up 30.3% in local currency to $10.8 million), Sinofuan (up 25.8% in local currency to $8.2 million) and edaravone injection products (up 12.7% in local currency to $33.7 million) helped boost revenues.
Simcere declares itself a maker of branded generic drugs, though it also makes the innovative cancer treatment Endu, a recombinant human endostatin and the stroke treatment edaravone.
This study shows that one administration of 300 mg / kg of edaravone significantly improved the survival rate, reduced lung inflammation, and attenuated reactive oxygen species and lung fibrosis.
The authors examined a unique potent free - radical scavenger, named edaravone, being clinically used to treat acute brain infarction in Japan, in order to investigate its ability to inhibit lung injury and / or fibrosis.
The safest dose, the most effective administration route and the optimum time for edaravone therapy should also be determined.
In summary, edaravone could be a promising drug for fatal interstitial lung diseases, such as acute exacerbation of IPF, acute interstitial pneumonia associated with collagen vascular diseases, or chemotherapy-related toxicity.
