Pharmaceutical firm’s patch relief

Galashiels-based firm ProStrakan has announced the European roll-out of a patch which prevents chemotherapy-induced nausea – the first licensed patch of its kind.

Tom Stratford, CEO, said: “The nausea and vomiting associated with some chemotherapy treatments can spell misery for some patients and, having proved a success in the US, we were keen to bring Sancuso to European patients and clinicians.”
