Recordati announces the signature of an agreement with Amdipharm, an international pharmaceutical group based in the U.K., for the marketing and sales in Italy and Portugal of TransAct LAT® (local action transcutaneous), a transdermal patch containing 40 mg of flurbiprofen indicated for the symptomatic relief of localized pain involving the musculoskeletal system.
