ILLINOIS, US: Abbott has acquired control of Veropharm, a leading Russian pharmaceutical manufacturer. Through this acquisition, Abbott establishes a manufacturing footprint in Russia through Veropharm’s production facilities, which include a new manufacturing facility currently under construction. Abbott also obtains a portfolio of medicines that is well aligned with its current pharmaceutical therapeutic areas of focus in women’s health, central nervous system, cardiovascular and gastroenterology, while adding an offering in the field of oncology and pharmaceutical R&D capabilities for Russia.
