PhotoCure's Metvix: Creating a New Market
Norway's PhotoCure is one of the few European biotech companies with a marketed product. Skin cancer photodynamic therapy Metvix PDT has already been launched in Scandinavia, and more recently by partner Galderma in Germany and the UK. Other PDT firms have struggled to educate physicians to accept a new kind of treatment-and thereby recoup the costs attached. PhotoCure is hoping that Metvix's improved efficacy and cosmetic advantages will help it create a market for PDT products.
