Water Street’s Development Partnership Achieves Another FDA Approval

Water Street announced today that its development partnership with a leading medical products company has resulted in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and launch of the ready-to-use cardiovascular medication, eptifibatide.  It is the first and only presentation of eptifibatide in a flexible container.

The approval of eptifibatide marks the seventh drug product successfully developed by Water Street’s company, Celerity Pharmaceuticals, LLC. Celerity both funded and led the development and approval of eptifibatide through its strategic partnership with the medical products company. Following FDA approval of eptifibatide, Celerity transferred ownership to its partner, which is commercially launching the new product in the United States.

“We are honored that our partner entrusted us to develop this new presentation of eptifibatide – the first of its kind available in a flexible container,” said Dan Robins, Ph.D., president, Celerity.  “We’re pleased that our work together has advanced our partner’s goal of engaging its innovative technologies with medicines that will benefit both patients and clinicians.”
