BioSim has been actively engaged in bringing to market the first copy of ACTH GEL to the US market. Research and development began in 2012 with the vision of creating a generic drug that won't be denied by insurance due to cost. That process allowed Biosim to quickly build its intellectual property in the area of follow-on biologics.
Adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) is a pituitary hormone that stimulates the production and secretion of glucocorticoids by the adrenal gland. The release of ACTH is stimulated by corticotrophin-releasing factor and controlled by a negative feedback pathway in response either to endogenous or exogenous corticosteroids.
We have manufactured a ACTH Gel that rivals the brand name drug, ACTHAR© in all its attributes and in biological models.
Active ingredient: adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH, corticotropin).
