“This marks a significant milestone for the company as we begin to expand the geographic reach of this important thyroid ablation therapy to physicians and their patients in South America” indicated DraxImage’s President Martyn Coombs.

HICON® Sodium Iodine I-131 Solution is indicated for the treatment of thyroid diseases, such as hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer. Patients who suffer from these thyroid conditions will now have access to INVIMA-approved Radioiodine therapy. INVIMA is the Colombian Pharmaceutical Regulatory agency. Using DraxImage’s proprietary Smart-FillTM dispensing system, our local distributor, COMCI, will deliver customized, patient-specific I-131 therapeutic capsules to patients requiring treatment for their thyroid disease. This is particularly important given the growing number of thyroid cancers being diagnosed. Specifically, there are almost 2,500 newly diagnosed cases of thyroid cancer every year in Colombia, affecting predominantly women between 25 and 65 years of age.

As the leading manufacturer and supplier of I-131 in North America and the only FDA-approved I-131 bulk solution which allows individualized therapeutic, patient specific doses, Jubilant DraxImage continues its commitment to delivering high quality, reliable, pharmaceutical-grade radioactive iodine to the global market.

In closing, DraxImage President Martyn Coombs stated, “We are very pleased to enter this important South American market with HICON® and Smart-FillTM and look forward to expanding in other areas of the region in the future. More importantly, we are especially proud to bring these essential treatment options to patients in Colombia.”
