Detach® is a non-antibiotic approach to aid in the control of diarrhoeal disease (known as scour), developed using bromelain, an extract from pineapple stems.

Scour in piglets is an expensive, debilitating and in some cases, life-threatening condition. Increasing survivability and providing health benefits to pre-weaning piglets has been at the core of the development of Detach® since the Company was listed in 2014.

In October 2018, Anatara announced that the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has registered Detach® for use in piglets in Australia, with the approved label, “To aid in the control of scour and has positive health benefits in weaned piglets from 3 weeks of age and help increase survivability of scouring pre-weaning piglets”. A copy of the announcement can be found here.

Anatara is evaluating commercialisation opportunities for Detach® including options for launch of the APVMA approved product in Australia, regulatory approval of this product in overseas markets, development of this product for species other than piglets and, global or regional licensing of Detach®
