The CEO says with a population of almost 83 million people in Germany it is the largest spender of healthcare in Europe.

Germany is also the largest user of opioids in Europe. Penthrox is a non-opioid pain relief self-administered with an inhaler.

It has been used safely and effectively for over 40 years in Australia.

Clinical data is still being gathered to submit a new drug application to the Food and Drug Administration in the US.
