Reig Jofre collaborates on first study worldwide on use of seawater for respiratory conditions


Reig Jofre, a CataloniaBio member, has collaborated on the first social-health research study in the world on the use of seawater for hygiene and to alleviate the symptoms of respiratory conditions, which obtained information from 175 medical specialists and 1,350 patients.

As a result of the study, participants have compiled the first recommendations for nasal washing with seawater, presented at the congress of the Spanish Society of Outpatient Paediatrics and Primary Care (SEPEAP) held 19 to 21 October in Santander. Of the participating specialists, 8 in 10 agreed on the suitability of using seawater instead of saline solution for congestion, infectious rhinitis, sinusitis, allergic rhinitis or nasal hygiene. For the study, patients used Reig Jofre’s Sterimar®.

New corporate appointments

This month, the biopharmaceutical company has announced two new appointments to head up its corporate and financial management. Gabriel Roig is now Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Roser Gomila is the company’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

More information is available on the Reig Jofre website.
