Why choose for Lithuanian products?
Biotechnology is the most promising branch of the Lithuanian pharmaceutical industry, characterized by
major investments in sophisticated equipment and research and development.
This resulted in the development of a worldly-acknowledged medicine against cancer TevaGrastim®, which
is 25-35% cheaper than a similar treatment already on the market, but just as effective.
