R-Pharm continues to dominate in segment of public procurements in Russia

8 May 2018

R-Pharm, one of Russia’s leading drugmakers, has won the 1 billion roubles (~$16 million) tender for the supplies of its teriflunomide drug for state needs, according to the company, reports The Pharma Letter’s local correspondent.

The tender was conducted without other bidders, which again sparks concerns of some Russian analysts of the affiliation of the company with the Russian Ministry of Health.

Teriflunomide, the active ingredient of French pharma major Sanofi’s (Euronext: SAN) Aubagio, is a drug, used to treat multiple sclerosis. This is the only new drug included in the program of seven high-cost nosologies, a state program in Russia that involves purchases of the most expensive drugs for state needs.
