Lifecore to Manufacture New Innovative Drug for Treatment of Postoperative Pain Following Customer’s FDA Approval
Heron received FDA approval for ZYNRELEF (bupivacaine and meloxicam) extended-release solution for use in adults for soft tissue or periarticular instillation to produce postsurgical analgesia for up to 72 hours after bunionectomy, open inguinal herniorrhaphy and total knee arthroplasty. ZYNRELEF, the first and only extended-release dual-acting local anesthetic (DALA), delivers a fixed-dose combination of the local anesthetic bupivacaine and a low dose of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) meloxicam. The synergy between bupivacaine and meloxicam in ZYNRELEF has resulted in patients experiencing less pain, including severe pain, and fewer patients requiring opioids (opioid-free) after surgery as compared to bupivacaine solution, the current standard-of-care.
The approval of ZYNRELEF adds to Lifecore’s growing portfolio of partnerships and products, and further demonstrates Lifecore’s capabilities to support the development services and manufacturing of products that must comply with the stringent clinical and regulatory standards in the pharmaceutical marketplace. Lifecore is focused on continuing to work with its partners to develop, formulate and fill pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices and combination products.
