Gedeon Richter: Cariprazine could become best-selling atypical antipsychotic drug

Cariprazine, an original antipsychotic drug developed by Hungarian pharmaceutical company Gedeon Richter Plc. is available in 64 countries and has become a multiple blockbuster in the US, with sales of nearly $3 billion. It is a unique achievement that a Hungarian drug candidate – discovered and developed locally – has been granted FDA and EU approvals, and the company already has several further molecules in its pipeline.

„Thousands of psychiatrists arrived to Budapest for the European Congress of Psychiatry, and perhaps even they are unaware of how important role Hungarian researchers have played in this field worldwide. We have nearly 1200 researchers, making us the largest innovation base in the whole region. The fact that cariprazine has been among the TOP 100 drugs by sales for several years now is an outstanding achievement comparable to winning an Olympic medal,“ Gábor Orbán, CEO of Richter said at a press conference held on the occasion of Budapest being the host of the European Congress of Psychiatry.
