Wednesday, August 7, 2019 8:30 AM
SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 7, 2019 / Jaguar Health, Inc. (NASDAQ:JAGX) (“Jaguar” or the “Company”), a commercial stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing novel, sustainably derived gastrointestinal products on a global basis, today announced that the Company’s wholly-owned, human-health focused subsidiary, Napo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Napo”), has launched a refreshed version of the Mytesi.com website. Mytesi® is Napo’s FDA-approved drug product indicated for the symptomatic relief of noninfectious diarrhea in adult patients with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy (ART).
The website has been optimized to provide a more patient-centric user experience and help people living with HIV locate resources that can help them learn about and obtain access to Mytesi. These resources include a patient discussion guide, the Mytesi Copay Savings Card, and a new consumer-friendly infographic that illustrates how Mytesi works. Content has also been added to the site covering the history of Mytesi's plant-based source and Napo’s ongoing sustainability program. Traffic to the updated website is being driven by Napo’s ongoing digital and social media marketing efforts.
Mytesi (crofelemer) is an antidiarrheal indicated for the symptomatic relief of noninfectious diarrhea in adult patients with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy (ART). Mytesi is not indicated for the treatment of infectious diarrhea. Rule out infectious etiologies of diarrhea before starting Mytesi. If infectious etiologies are not considered, there is a risk that patients with infectious etiologies will not receive the appropriate therapy and their disease may worsen. In clinical studies, the most common adverse reactions occurring at a rate greater than placebo were upper respiratory tract infection (5.7%), bronchitis (3.9%), cough (3.5%), flatulence (3.1%), and increased bilirubin (3.1%).
See full Prescribing Information at Mytesi.com. Crofelemer, the active ingredient in Mytesi, is a botanical (plant-based) drug extracted and purified from the red bark sap of the medicinal Croton lechleri tree in the Amazon rainforest. Napo has established a sustainable harvesting program for crofelemer to ensure a high degree of quality and ecological integrity.
