Lupin Signs Marketing Agreement With Ceek for Women's Health Products to Improve OB/GYN and Patient Exam Experience
Nella™ NuSpec™, VuSleeve® and VuLight® provide new products complimenting Lupin’s Specialty offering
Baltimore, June 09, 2020: Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc., the U.S. based wholly-owned subsidiary of Lupin Limited (Lupin), and Ceek Women’s Health (Ceek), a leading pioneer in modern gynecological care, today announced an agreement to add Ceek’s line of women’s health products to Lupin’s promotional offering in the United States, further enhancing the value that Lupin provides to OB/GYNs and their patients. The promotional arrangement includes detailing and demonstration of Ceek’s products, alongside Lupin’s women’s health flagship product, Solosec® (secnidazole) 2g oral granules, indicated for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis (BV), a common vaginal infection in adult women. Solosec® is a 5-nitroimidazole antimicrobial agent.
Offering the first innovative update to the vaginal speculum in nearly 150 years, the Nella™ NuSpec™ is the smarter reusable speculum. The NuSpec™ was developed after extensive prototyping and research to change the patient experience during gynecological exams. The VuSleeve® and the VuLight® are accessories to the speculum designed to provide easy visualization and access to the cervix. Ceek’s product line is designed to improve the quality of care for all women as well as in specific segments, including adolescents, transgender patients, rape or trauma patients, post-menopausal women and cancer survivors. Ceek has been the recipient of three prestigious product design awards including the 2020 Red Dot Award, the 2020 iF Award, and the 2019 Core77 Notable Design Award. Lupin will also be promoting another product currently in Ceek’s pipeline later in the year.
“We are excited to add these innovative offerings to our customers and patients,” said Jon Stelzmiller, President – Specialty, Lupin Pharmaceuticals, Inc. “This further emphasizes the Lupin commitment to women’s health and to improving the patient and provider experience.” Fahti Khosrowshahi, CEO of Ceek, added, “We are extremely excited to partner with Lupin. Lupin’s integrity and commitment to women’s health is unparalleled and this partnership is a pivotal milestone for Ceek as we transition to commercialization. The partnership with Lupin allows Ceek to launch our products nationally with a world-class field-force focused on OB/GYN providers.”

Bacterial vaginosis (BV)
Bacterial vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection in the U.S. affecting more than 20 million women between the ages of 14 and 49 annually. Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is an infection caused by an imbalance of bacteria naturally found in the vagina.3 Symptoms of BV include an unpleasant or fishy odor, discharge, thin, milky grayish-white, or excessive discharge, and sometimes itching, burning sensation or irritation.3,4 However, some women may have no symptoms.4 A healthy vagina has a natural balance of good and bad bacteria.1An overgrowth of bad bacteria can occur when the vagina’s pH level (level of acidity) is disturbed. When this happens, bad bacteria are able to grow and overtake the good bacteria, which may lead to BV.2
Solosec® (secnidazole) 2g oral granules is the first and only single-dose oral prescription treatment option to treat bacterial vaginosis (BV), a common vaginal infection, in adult women.3 Solosec® is easy to take, and one dose delivers a complete treatment, which can be taken at any time of day, without regard to the timing of meals.4 After one dose, Solosec® continues to treat BV for four days without any alcohol restriction – in vitro drug alcohol studies show Solosec® does not inhibit the enzyme that metabolizes alcohol. Because Solosec® is taken in one oral dose, it may be preferred by women who wish to avoid a multi-day treatment regimen.5
Solosec® (secnidazole) 2 g oral granules is a 5-nitroimidazole antimicrobial agent indicated for the treatment of bacterial vaginosis (BV) in adult women.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Solosec® is a single-dose therapy for oral use. The entire contents of Solosec® packet should be sprinkled onto applesauce, yogurt or pudding and consumed once within 30 minutes without chewing or crunching the granules. Solosec® is not intended to be dissolved in any liquid.
