Cuban Biotechnology Center Produces New Drug against Circulatory Problems

Posted July 20, 2004 by publisher in Cuba Culture.


Experts from Cuba’s Center for Drug Research and Development have produced a new medication to treat circulatory problems.

The new drug, called Pentocir 400, is administered to patients suffering from cerebral-vascular disorders and problems in the lower extremities, such as ulcers or gangrene.

The Cuban-made medication, which is obtained from imported raw materials, reduces the viscosity of blood and increases irrigation to the damaged tissues.

According to experts, Pentocir 400 remains physically, chemically and microbiologically stable for long periods, which has been confirmed 24 months after preparation.

So far, the new drug has been used at the National Angiology Institute, the National Vascular Surgery Institute and the National Neurology Institute, as well as the Hermanos Ameijeiras Clinical-Surgical Hospital.
