Aachen, Germany, 30 October 2018 – Grünenthal today announced that it has agreed to acquire AstraZeneca’s European rights to Nexium and the global (ex US and Japan) rights to Vimovo for a total consideration of up to US$ 922 m (€ 811 m). Nexium (esomeprazole) is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) that helps to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach in patients with gastroesophageal reflux conditions and ulcers. It has a number of indications, including the prevention and treatment of gastric ulcers induced by pain-relieving non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Vimovo is a fixed-dose combination tablet of naproxen, a pain-relieving non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and esomeprazole, the same gastroprotective active ingredient as in Nexium.
