Fresenius SE & Co. said Thursday that its Kabi unit and German pharmaceutical company medac have entered into a marketing agreement for treatments of rheumatic illnesses.

"On June 1, medac's sales representatives will begin offering the adalimumab biosimilar IDACIO(R) as an additional therapy option to the rheumatologists and dermatologists they work with," the German health-care company said.

The product developed by Fresenius Kabi was launched in Europe in 2019 for the treatment of illnesses such as arthritis and psoriasis, it said.
