Value Proposition 

From our Innovation Department, we generate ideas for drugs based on known molecules but providing an additional health benefit to patients and their caregivers. This added benefit to medicines can be in terms of efficacy, safety, dosage, administration route, formulation, or combination, among others. We are passionate about creating our own innovation projects by collaborating with renowned public and private research groups and institutions at the highest level within the territory. We primarily focus on areas where we excel: autoimmune diseases, pain, respiratory and uroginecology.

Our strength in making agreements is based on these points:

Agility in decision-making and agreement negotiations

Know-how in Regulatory Affairs

Strong relationships with authorities for price and reimbursement negotiations

Availability of internal resources for promotion and investment in new products

Long-term commitment to all our products

Development of commercial activities with added value

We have a virtual Research and Development model in which the organization works with a limited number of internal staff and utilizes external resources, technologies, and facilities on demand to develop its R&D projects. This model offers numerous advantages, such as reduced capital requirements, overall costs, and financial risks, limited infrastructure costs, and, of course, greater flexibility.
