Leo Pharma increases its profitability in Spain. The Spanish subsidiary of the dermatological laboratory of Danish origin achieved revenues of $83.8 million (€78 million) in 2021, which translates into an increase of 12.6% compared to 2020, as Nuno Bras, CEO of Leo Pharma Iberia said. The company recognizes that this result is also in line with the evolution that the launch of its new biologic treatment for atopic dermatitis, tralokinumab, is having in the market.

Leo Pharma Spain invests $2.15 million (€2 million) a year in research and development (R&D). The laboratory’s research studies in Spain place it, on a global scale, among the top five countries in the group, at the same level as the research activity carried out in Germany or the United States. Leo Pharma’s research in Spain has included three clinical trials of tralokinumab, in which 19 Spanish hospitals in seven autonomous communities have participated.
