Emmaus, a leader in sickle cell disease treatment, signs agreement with McKesson to expand distribution network for Endari™ (L-glutamine oral powder)


Emmaus Life Sciences, Inc., announces it has entered into a distribution agreement with McKesson Plasma and Biologics LLC (McKesson), a division of McKesson Corporation. The agreement makes Endari™ (L-glutamine oral powder), indicated to reduce the acute complications of sickle cell disease in adult and pediatric patients 5 years of age and older, available nationwide to pharmacies that utilize McKesson as their primary and exclusive distributor. McKesson is the largest healthcare distribution company in the world.

Since launching Endari, the first U.S. FDA approved sickle cell treatment in 20 years, Emmaus has brought this therapy to patients in over 30 states, Washington DC and Puerto Rico. In addition to the distributors already in place, this agreement with McKesson will further broaden Endari’s distribution, with the potential to reach many more patients suffering from the acute complications associated with sickle cell disease.

“As the demand for Endari continues to increase, we seek to build our distribution network to ensure that we reach patients in need,” said Yutaka Niihara, MD, MPH, CEO and Chairman of Emmaus.
