scPharmaceuticals to Present at the Leerink Global Healthcare Conference
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LEXINGTON, Mass. /PRNewswire/ – scPharmaceuticals, Inc., a privately held pharmaceutical company developing transformative pharmaceutical products for subcutaneous delivery, announced today that Pieter Muntendam, President, CEO and founder of scPharmaceuticals, will present at Leerink Global Healthcare Conference in New York, NY on February 11, 2015.
Dr. Muntendam will provide an update on the company beginning at 11:30 a.m., Eastern Standard Time. About scPharmaceuticals: scPharmaceuticals, based in Lexington, MA, is a privately held pharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of transformative pharmaceutical products for subcutaneous delivery. Based on widely used generic drugs that currently require intravenous or intramuscular injections, our innovative products will be administered subcutaneously via a proprietary patch pump. This avoids material risks and costs associated with the current delivery options. Our lead products are the first subcutaneous formulations of furosemide (the most widely used parenteral diuretic in treating heart failure) and ceftriaxone (the most widely used parenteral antibiotic outside the hospital setting). Our novel furosemide formulation enables convenient anytime anywhere use, for example in an outpatient setting instead of the emergency room or other in-patient settings. For ceftriaxone and other antibiotics, subcutaneous administration eliminates the need for PICCs (peripherally inserted central catheters), which are associated with serious complications, frequent adverse events and high medical cost. For further information on how we are transforming the administration of parenteral drugs, go to www.scpharmaceuticals.com.
