What is the difference between Xiaflex and Xiapex?

Biological medication called collagenase clostridium histolyticum is produced by Auxilium, a US company that obtained rights for the medication from the original patent-holder.  Collagenase clostridium histolyticum is used for treatment of Peyronie’s disease and Dupuytren’s contracture. Collagenase clostridium histolyticum is known as Xiaflex in the US and Canada.  The same medication is known under trade name Xiapex in the European market.

Xiapex is marketed through a collaborative agreement with Auxilium by  Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) (Sobi).
