Patients Above Profits

Civica Rx raised a few eyebrows in 2018, when it was founded as a not-for-profit to manufacture important generic medicines for the US market. But, since then, the company has gone from strength to strength – 18 medicines are now in production or shipped for use in hospitals across the USA.

A recent announcement from the company draws attention to the signing of a long-term (seven-year) agreement with Thermo Fisher Scientific, which will drive the development of Civica-owned Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs). Initially, the collaboration will focus on nine critical medications that have been in short supply or where the drug supply chain is considered fragile because there are too few manufacturers making the drugs.

The company also notes its interest in talking to generic drug manufacturers who are considering retiring or withdrawing their ANDA for essential medicines that are at risk of being in short supply.
