Rechipharm contracted to make novel lidocaine formulation
Recipharm AB will manufacture commercial supplies of a topical formulation of the anaesthetic lidocaine called Shact that is soon to be launched by developer Pharmanest AB.

The new contract –terms of which were not disclosed – will see the Swedish contract manufacturing organisation’s (CMO) semi-solid products unit make Shact – which is used to alleviate discomfort and pain during IUD insertion - at its facility in Karlskoga.
