Siklos®, the first and only hydroxyurea-based treatment for pediatric patients with sickle cell anemia, now available in retail pharmacies

Medunik USA, a company dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of Americans with rare diseases by making orphan drugs available in the U.S., announced today that Siklos® (hydroxyurea), an FDA-approved orphan drug, is now available in 100 mg tablets for pharmacies to order.

Siklos® is indicated to reduce the frequency of painful crises and the need for blood transfusions in pediatric patients, two years of age and older, with sickle cell anemia with recurrent moderate to severe painful crises. It is the first and only FDA-approved hydroxyurea-based treatment for use in pediatric patients with sickle cell anemia.

Medunik USA holds the exclusive rights to market and distribute Siklos® in the United States, through an agreement with ADDMEDICA, a French pharmaceutical company specializing in hematology.
