Established in 2003, Dilafor AB is currently developing tafoxiparin, a drug for the treatment and prevention of protracted labor. By normalizing birth labor time, tafoxiparin is expected to decrease the number of acute cesarean sections and the use of vacuum extraction. 

In February 2014 it was announced that Dilafor AB and Hong-Kong based Lee’s Pharmaceutical Holdings had entered into a license agreement to manufacture, develop and commercialize tafoxiparin in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. Under the terms of the accord, Dilafor and Lee’s Pharma will jointly develop tafoxiparin for obstetrical and gynecological indications.
