Transatlantic specialty pharma BTG adds to its antidote portfolio with FDA approval of Voraxaze, an enzyme drug that breaks down methotrexate in patients whose kidneys are failing due to high serum levels of the chemotherapeutic. BTG also markets snake-bite therapy CroFab and DigiFab for digitalis overdose and recently licensed a late-stage drug to counter toxicity from 5-FU chemotherapy.
Eusa hopes the approval will help cement its efforts in the U.S., where it has been trying to build a strong presence for several years.
