Enabling Access to Healthcare
We are committed to helping patients access our therapies. In the month of March, we have donated more than 650 vials of Pegfilgrastim to needy patients across major oncology centers. Pegfilgrastim is a PEGylated form of the recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GCSF) analog filgrastim. In patients receiving chemotherapy, Pegfilgrastim accelerates the recovery of neutrophils, reducing the neutropenic phase (the time in which people are susceptible to infections).
Fulfilling social commitments
Committed to the well being of women, we regularly organise workshops on family planning, healthy pregnancy and safe motherhood with Midwives, SHOs and Medical Officers in accord with the stated objectives of the United Nations. Many of the workshops are held in collaboration with the government to generate awareness on major diseases/deficiencies.
