DBP's first purchase order from Closter Pharma
As previously announced, Double Bond Pharmaceutical and CLOSTER PHARMA SAS (Colombia) signed a distribution agreement for Temodex in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Costa Rica in September 2018. At the beginning of November, Double Bond Pharmaceutical and Closter Pharma organized an exchange of experience where eight doctors from leading hospitals in Colombia were able to meet and exchange experience with developers, manufacturers and users of Temodex in Minsk, Belarus. For three days, they had the opportunity to be with their Belarussian colleagues and see with their own eyes how Temodex is manufactured and used on site. As the next step of the collaboration, Double Bond Pharmaceutical has now received its first purchase order for 10 units of Temodex.

There is a great interest in Temodex in different parts of the world and we are pleased that we can provide doctors to patients with brain cancer with our innovative product, "commented Igor Lokot, CEO of Double Bond Pharmaceutical, “Latin America is a big market and can generate a lucrative business for Drugsson AB".
