Cuba has approved the extensive use of Citoprot-P and DPT-HB-HIB vaccine, both developed by its Center of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology.

The latter is fit to fight diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis B and haemophilus influenzae type B, is the second of its type in the world and first produced by a developing country.

CIGB director Dr. Luis Herrera added that the vaccine will simplify and reduce immunization programs for the Cuban population.

Citoprot-P is considered a unique choice for diabetic patients to prevent amputation caused by aggressive injuries, added the specialist.

Both medications underwent tight screening and efficiency tests before they were approved by the State Medical Quality Control Center.

Herrera explained that after earning a domestic license Cuba arranged for international registration and sales license.

Since its July 1, 1986 inauguration, the CIGB has registered 28 quality products, the best known its recombinant vaccine for hepatitis B, the recombinant streptoquinase for cardiac arrests, interferon and skin growth factor.

    I live in the united states.  I would like to purchase the medicine discussed in this article called CITOPROT-P.  I tried to purchase it in Mexico with no luck.  Can you help me at all by giving me some idea how I could purchase CITOPROT-P for my husband , who is diabetic and has a wound on his foot that has not healed in two years.  We have tried everything available.  Thank You,  Ann

    You could always ask your Congressman and George Bush for the freedom to travel to Cuba but they are not interested.

    You will have to go to Cuba and know many people high up in the government to be considered. This giant wall is due more to the US administration than that Cuban administration.

    Sadly, do not get your hopes up but it is worth exploring.

    Good luck.

    What is the difference in the efficacy of EGF when applied topically or as injectable to the diabetic foot ulcer.
