TOKYO, Nov 07, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Eisai Co., Ltd. announced today that it has entered into an agreement to divest its rights for muscle relaxant Myonal (generic name: eperisone hydrochloride) and vertigo and equilibrium disturbance treatment Merislon (generic name: betahistine mesilate) in Asia (9 countries/regions*) to a subsidiary of DKSH Holding Ltd.

In our Asia and Latin America Pharmaceuticals Business (ALA Region), we are shifting to a product portfolio centered on new global products in our strategic areas of neurology and oncology. Eisai believes that this divestiture agreement will accelerate the pursuit of the best marketing mix in the ALA Region. Under the terms of the agreement, Eisai will receive a contractual up-front payment, and also plan to supply the products. Eisai will retain its manufacturing rights to and continue to distribute the products in countries such as Japan, China and South Korea.
