Adamis Enjoys Stock Spike on FDA Approval

A news release out Wednesday revealed the San Diego- based company Symjepi (epinephrine) Injection 0.3mg is an FDA-approved product, for the emergency treatment of allergic reactions (Type I) including anaphylaxis, designed for patients weighing 66 pounds or greater.

CEO Dennis Carlo commented, “With this submission we are excited to take another step forward to provide this potentially life-saving treatment to a broader range of patients that are at risk of anaphylaxis."

Carlo continued, "I know there is great interest in the commercial plan for Symjepi. We are in confidential discussions with several potential partners. We remain committed to bring Symjepi to market and intend to announce our commercial plan once definitive arrangements have been finalized."
