Nutramigen PURAMINO, a formula for infants and young children with cow milk protein allergy, is being launched in Czechia and Slovakia following an agreement between Mead Johnson Nutrition and Ewopharma.

Mead Johnson Nutrition has signed an agreement with Swiss company Ewopharma, a distributor of pharmaceutical and nutritional products in Central Eastern Europe, to launch Nutramigen PURAMINO in Czechia and Slovakia.

Nutramigen PURAMINO is a hypoallergenic amino-acid formula for infants and young children with severe cow’s milk protein allergy.

Hans Peters, vice president & general manager of Mead Johnson Nutrition in Europe said the highly specialized formula is not only proven to be hypoallergenic and support normal growth, but it also contains DHA, which contributes to the visual development in infants.

Managing allergy symptoms

Cow’s milk allergy is a reaction by the body’s immune system to proteins in the milk. Symptoms are diverse, ranging from mild to severe, and start within the first week of introducing cow dairy products into the diet of an infant. The exaggerated immune response may cause injury in an infant’s stomach and/or intestines, as well as various skin irritations.

The company said that Nutramigen PURAMINO manages severe allergy symptoms by utilizing amino acids rather than dairy protein in a hypoallergenic, iron-fortified infant formula.

Alain Staub, CEO and chairman of the board of Ewopharma, said the company has traditionally been present in the Eastern European and Baltic countries and specifically focuses on providing its markets with niche products and for those with health conditions with high unmet medical need.
