For Production of Omeprazole Injections
Broadens Product Offerings for Multiple Therapeutic Markets –
HAIKOU CITY, China, August 18, 2009 - China Pharma Holdings, Inc. ("China Pharma") (OTC Bulletin
Board: CPHI), which develops, manufactures, and markets specialty pharmaceutical products in China,
today announced that it has received approval from the Chinese State Food and Drug Administration
(“SFDA) for the production of generic Omeprazole Sodium injections.
Omeprazole is widely utilized to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (ghly effective in
other conditions caused by excess acidic formulations in the stomach, including gastric ulcers, recurrent
duodenal ulcers and Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome.
Omeprazole is a gastric proton pump inhibitor. This product is a substituted benzimidazole derivative
which acts on the final step of gastric acid production and therefore controls acid secretion in response to
all varieties of stimuli. Omeprazole was first marketedr the brand names
Losec and Prilosec(it is estimated that patients have benefited from over 900million treatments since its
launch1), and is now also available fromufacturers under various brand names. Omeprazole
is on China’s National Medical Reimbursement Insurance List, allowing insured patients to receive
reimbursement for the cost of injections, and has been included in the WHO (World Health Organization)
Model List of Essential Medicines in March 2009.
China Pharma's CEO and President, Ms Zhilin Li, commented, "We are very pleased that the SFDA has
approved China Pharma’s production of Omeprazole Sodium injections. Omeprazole, a selective
inhibitor for gastric acid secretion, is one of the most widely prescribed drugs in the world today2. The
market of gastrointestinal (GI) disorders is one of the largest and most profitable therapeutic areas for the
global pharmaceutical industry. With a reported $49.9bn in revenue in 2007 worldwide, GI diseases
consistently ranks with cardiovascular diseases and oncology in the top 3 therapeutic areas in terms of
market value3. While most oral Omeprazole preparations are enteric-coated due to the rapid degradation
of the drug in the acidic conditions of the stomach; our injection product is formulated in freeze-dried
powder, as a result, it enters the blood circulation faster and works efficiently toward absorption and
avoiding degradation.”
Ms. Li continued, “We believe that this approval provides us with an exciting opportunity to extend our
product portfolio, and we expect it to create value for our patients and shareholders over time.”
