Remimazolam was approved in South Korea for general anesthesia in January 2021 and will be marketed under the brand name ByfavoTM.

We look forward to a successful 4th country launch and sharing further commercial news when we receive it regarding the South Korean market."
Remimazolam is approved in the U.S., the EU/EEA and China for procedural sedation and in Japan and South Korea for general anesthesia.
In addition to procedural sedation and general anesthesia, intensive care unit (ICU) sedation is another possible indication for remimazolam.
Remimazolam is partnered in the U.S. (brand name BYFAVOTM) with Acacia Pharma, in Japan (brand name Anerem(R)) with Mundipharma, in China (brand name Ruima(R)) with Yichang Humanwell, in Canada with Pharmascience, in Russia/CIS, Turkey and the MENA region with R-Pharm, in South Korea (brand name ByfavoTM) and Southeast Asia with Hana Pharm and in Taiwan with TTY Biopharm.
