Source: Applied Clinical Trials

The FDA has granted a marketing authorization for two drugs developed in Turku, Finland--the IUD Skyla, developed, by Bayer and intended for women who have not given birth, and Hormos Medical’s Ophena for postmenopausal symptoms. With the marketing authorization of Selincro, a Biotie drug intended for the treatment of alcohol addiction, granted by the EMA, that brings the total number of drugs developed in Turku and granted marketing authorizations to three, with a fourth expected to follow.

There are only about 30 new drugs that receive the marketing authorization in Europe per year, a number that makes the turnout from Turku even more significant.
