DREXEL HILL, Pa. — The Community Specialty Pharmacy Network has entered a contract with Dara BioSciences to distribute a nonsteroidal anti-estrogen product.

CSPN announced the agreement with Dara to distribute Soltamox (tamoxifen) solution for oral administration. The drug, a treatment for breast cancer, is for patients who have difficulty swallowing pills.

"Compliance and adherence to prescribed tamoxifen therapy is a critical issue in patient care and may affect treatment outcomes," Dara BioSciences VP sales, marketing and business development David Benharris said.
