Novartis announces collaboration with Bayer for EMSELEX

Basel, 17 December 2004 Novartis Pharma AG announced today the start of a collaboration between Novartis Pharma GmbH and Bayer Vital AG for the commercialization and distribution of EMSELEX (darifenacin hydrobromide), 7.5 mg and 15 mg in Germany. The collaboration is effective following an agreement between Bayer Vital AG and Novartis Pharma GmbH. EMSELEX, a new once-daily M3 selective receptive antagonist (M3 SRA) recently received Marketing Authorization from the European Commission in 25 European member states, plus Norway and Iceland for the treatment of overactive bladder (OAB).

"EMSELEX is a new effective drug for the treatment of OAB that is selective for the M3 receptors in the bladder, with proven efficacy, good tolerability and with a well established central nervous system and cardiovascular safety profile." Under the terms of the collaboration, Novartis remains the owner of the marketing authorization for darifenacin, while Bayer Vital gains exclusive commercialization rights for EMSELEX in Germany.
