Altan files New Drug Application for Acetaminophen solution with US FDA


Malin owns approximately 65% of Altan, a Malin revenue-generative Growth Potential Asset


Dublin-Ireland, 7 February 2019: Malin Corporation plc (Euronext Dublin:MLC), a company investing in highly innovative life sciences companies, is pleased to note that its subsidiary company, Altan Pharma Limited (“Altan”), has submitted a New Drug Application (NDA) for its formulation of acetaminophen (paracetamol) solution for infusion to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which has been accepted for review.


Altan’s intravenous solution is an analgesic used for the treatment of pain and reduction of fever; and offers hospitals more choices for non-opioid forms of pain relief. The formulation is uniquely packaged in safe and flexible containers, often preferred by healthcare providers and has sold more than 200 million units in non-US markets to date.

“We believe this non-opioid form of pain-relief represents a significant commercial opportunity in the US market; and has the potential to offer a favourable product and a more economic solution for hospitals, patients and payors”

Darragh Lyons

Chief Business and Financial Officer of Malin

Malin owns approximately 65% of Altan.
