Teva launches AJOVY for the treatment of migraine with the YpsoMate autoinjector from Ypsomed

Ypsomed AG

Burgdorf – Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (Teva), a global leader in generic medicines with innovative treatments in select areas, including central nervous system, pain and respiratory, launches its drug product AJOVY® in the pre-filled YpsoMate 2.25 autoinjector from Ypsomed. AJOVY® is used for the preventive treatment of migraine in adults. The collaboration with Teva marks the first commercial market entry of Ypsomed’s larger 2.25 ml autoinjector YpsoMate 2.25.

Teva has announced the launch of AJOVY® in an autoinjector device for the German market in March 2020. AJOVY® (fremanezumab-vfrm), a humanised monoclonal antibody, is the first and only anti-CGRP treatment for the prevention of migraine with monthly and quarterly dosing options. According to the World Health Organisation, at least one in seven adults is affected by migraine worldwide. To date, Teva has marketed AJOVY® in a standard syringe. With the launch of the drug in an autoinjector, Teva now offers AJOVY® in a format, which is more convenient for patients.

The YpsoMate 2.25 auto-injector is based on the same platform as the YpsoMate with 1.0 ml fill volume, but is assembled with a syringe with 2.25 ml fill volume. Due to the higher fill volume, the YpsoMate 2.25 is also suitable for drugs that need to be injected less frequently but in higher volumes. Ypsomed manufactures its YpsoMate 2.25 on a fully automated production line at its Solothurn site in Switzerland.

“For us, the cooperation with Teva is yet another important milestone for our YpsoMate autoinjector platforms. It is not only the second realised YpsoMate project with Teva, but also the first commercial market launch for the YpsoMate 2.25 large volume autoinjector. We see a growing need for injection devices for home use to increase quality of life for patients,” comments Ulrike Bauer, Senior Vice President Ypsomed Delivery Systems.
