He said the company continues to see prescriptions filled without interruption for both its PrVistitan (glaucoma) drug and Tacrolimus (anti-organ rejection) drug.

"To help ensure the continuity of our business operations, we have streamlined our responses to requests for product resources or samples and have been very active in ancillary initiatives such as digital marketing and targeting. Our partner, Sandoz, has confirmed that they are not having any manufacturing or supply issues with our partnered products," said Janzen.

"We have suspended in-field clinic and hospital visits for the time being, in an effort to both stay out of the way of essential services in our health care facilities as well as minimize the risk of exposure or inadvertent spreading of the virus by our employees. Our operational expenses have been significantly reduced during this period as a result," added the company boss.

Janzen said the group's launch efforts for the Evolve products continue and it would provide a separate update on launch timing and additional new products in coming weeks.

Shares in Toronto surged over 28% to C$0.090 each.
