What we do
Iron Deficiency (ID) and Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) are global problems.
According to research, Iron Deficiency Anemia accounts for 50% of all anemia worldwide.1 Existing treatment options have significant drawbacks and many Health Care Professionals (HCPs) agree there is an unmet need in the market for an effective, convenient and well-tolerated oral iron replacement therapy.
We deliver innovative specialty pharmaceuticals that address a significant unmet need for patients suffering from iron deficiency, with or without anemia. ACCRUFeR® is broadly indicated for use in adults across multiple therapeutic categories.

The unmet need of iron deficiency
Maintaining normal iron levels in the blood is essential to the smooth running of multiple metabolic processes and the optimal functioning of the human body.
Insufficient levels of iron, or decreased total iron in the body, is defined as iron deficiency.
Once diagnosed, iron deficiency is typically treated with either generic and/or over the counter oral iron salt products or intravenous (IV) iron therapy. Oral iron salts are usually prescribed as first line treatment for mild to moderate cases. IV therapy, which is less convenient and more costly to administer, is normally used for treatment of more severe cases.
For traditional or conventional oral iron salt products, the clear issues are poor tolerability, inefficient absorption and efficacy, and consequently poor adherence by patients. There is a clear unmet need for a well tolerated and effective oral iron product.
