“With the approval in Europe, we have now achieved all key R&D milestones around the world,” said Rui Avelar, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Research & Development. “This approval further validates our TRANSPARENCY clinical development program, which included the largest aesthetics head-to-head pivotal study conducted in Europe and Canada versus BOTOX® out to 150 days.”

Nuceiva™ was approved by Health Canada in August 2018. The company expects to launch Nuceiva™ in Canada in the fourth quarter through its partner Clarion. The company also expects Nuceiva™ to launch in Europe in 2020.
