The Way Out is Available
Inexpensive drugs are returning to the pharmacy stalls. Inexpensive antipyretic, hypotensive and other highly demanded drugs (11 names) will be available as of July. They will be manufactured by the Perm pharmaceutical company Medisorb. Equipment assembly at a new production site is already beginning and production will begin next month.
Of note, Medisorb is one of the first companies in Russia to implement GMP standards. Its production facilities also meet the Russian National Standards — GOST 52249, which ensures high quality of drugs.
Over 20 mln packs of drugs manufactured by Medisorb are supplied to Russian healthcare facilities. The product portfolio already includes activated charcoal, aspirin and paracetamol. The portfolio will further expand, while the price for some products will be lower than that of foreign equivalents by as much as 50 percent. It is possible thanks to public support and interest rate subsidies, as well as loans for development and equipment.
