“Progress continued during the third quarter with the launch of a new Phase 3 study, granting of orphan drug designation for CAM2029 in the US, double-digit sales growth and improved results. COVID-19 has continued to put pressure on us, however, we see potential for accelerated growth as access to health care providers and patients improves and new markets are added. In December, we also await an important approval decision for Brixadi™ in the US.”
