"After thorough consideration, we have decided that Orion Animal Health is the ideal partner for Oasmia and Paclical(R) Vet. We share the same views on development, potential, market and vision for the product. Orion has a strong confidence in our platform and product portfolio. This agreement enables us to focus on the development of our other Animal Health pharmaceuticals and Orion to focus on the market introduction," says Julian Aleksov, CEO of Oasmia.

The first Phase III study on Paclical(R) Vet has just been completed and the interim results have exceeded all expectations. A second international Phase III study is initiated and will constitute the basis for the US and world-wide registration of Paclical(R) Vet. When registered, Paclical(R) Vet will be the first cytostatic in the world registered for veterinary medicine.
