Lumiera Health signs definitive agreement to launch Awaye(TM) in the US and receives NDC from FDA


MONTREAL, March 8, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - Lumiera Health Inc.

Lumiera Health Inc. (CNW Group/Lumiera Health Inc.)

As previously announced, Pain Level LLC will be representing the company's Awaye™ pain relief product in the Northeastern US market. The definitive agreement with Pain Level LLC has been signed, and the launch plans are moving forward.

Lumiera is also pleased to announce that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has published final registration of the Company's National Drug Code (NDC) number (82531-001) for its Awaye™ Pain Relief Cream. An NDC is the FDA's unique identifier for drugs and allows Awaye™ to be sold as an OTC drug anywhere in the US. The NDC number has also enabled the Company to complete the US version of the product packaging which enables production for US inventory to begin.

"Awaye™ has received very positive feedback from consumers; it is helping people manage their pain naturally, and we are very excited to expand distribution in the Northeastern US market to help people manage their pain and to accelerate our growth. The finalization of the agreement with Pain Level LLC and the NDC are two significant milestones; we can now move forward with production, inventory builds and sales execution. I look forward sharing additional milestones as we execute our plans." says Carlos Ponce, CEO of Lumiera.
