TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trxade Group, Inc. (OTCQB:TRXD), a web-based pharmaceutical marketplace engaged in promoting and enabling trade among independent pharmacies and large pharmaceutical suppliers nationally, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Westminster Pharmaceuticals LLC (“Westminster”), has launched the generic drug HCTZ (Hydrochlorothiazide) as part of an exclusive agreement with ScieGen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. ScieGen’s ANDA Number 203018 for Hydrochlorothiazide treats fluid retention (edema) in people with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, kidney disorders, or edema caused by taking steroids or estrogen. This medication, which is also used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), will be marketed under the Westminster Pharmaceuticals, LLC private label. Under the terms of the supply and distribution agreement with ScieGen, Westminster will semi-exclusively market and distribute ScieGen’s product in the United States.
“As the challenge of treating conditions that result in edema continues to increase, it is essential that patients and healthcare practitioners have access to potent agents with the proven ability to resolve these often difficult-to-treat pathogens. With this in mind, we are pleased that the U.S. healthcare community will now have access to one of the industry's most potent antibiotics for the treatment of edema in patients with conditions ranging from congestive heart failure to hypertension,” said Suren Ajjarapu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Trxade Group, Inc.
“Further, this launch represents an important milestone in the strategic expansion and increasing brand recognition of Westminster Pharmaceuticals, our wholly-owned subsidiary. We believe that 2016 will represent a new era of growth and expansion for Trxade Group and its shareholders driven primarily by these new distribution agreements as well as the continued expansion of the number of pharmacies in our trading platform, which recently surpassed 5,000 members,” concluded Mr. Ajjarapu.
