AcuCort’s new, innovative drug candidate enables fast uptake of the active ingredient. Dexa ODF is not a tablet that must be swallowed nor does it require access to water since it is a fast-dissolving film to be put on the tongue. Important benefits in stressful situations such as acute allergic reactions, not least for persons with swallowing difficulties.

What is AcuCort?

AcuCort develops and commercializes Dexa ODF ‒ a fast-dissolving film to be put on the tongue, based on a well-known version of cortisone – dexamethasone. Dexa ODF is a smart product in a new, innovative and user-friendly administration form, primarily for the treatment of acute allergic reactions, for viral croup in children and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).

The drug candidate Dexa ODF is estimated to have short time to market since AcuCort only needs to repeat a previous successful bioequivalence study to seek marketing approval in Europe.
