About 1 in 10 people suffer from recurring herpes labialis1 in France. Patients have an average of 3,4 episodes each year, which significantly affect their personal and social life2.

Vectans Pharma launches a therapeutic innovation in France for treating recurrences of herpes labialis in immunocompetent adults who experience frequent outbreaks of herpes. This is the very first treatment that allows a single-dose administration of 50 mg of acyclovir for each herpes labialis episode, now available in pharmacy.

In order to insure a successful launch, Vectans Pharma notably relies on a dedicated team in charge of promoting the product.
Thus, dermatologists, general practicioners and pharmacists can discover this new therapeutic treatment in herpes labialis.
