Iran's Health Ministry Qualifies 2nd Nano Drug for Marketing

Tehran, Iran | Posted on January 2nd, 2013

The medicine, containing nanographite, has been produced under the title Carboncelium Complex by one of the Iranian companies, and it has applications as topical ointment in burn wounds.

After passing the preliminary production stages and acquiring basic approvals from Food and Medicine Organization of the Health Ministry, the medicine was finally evaluated in Nanotechnology Committee of Food and Medicine Organization after the approval of clinical studies. Taking into consideration the documents presented about the use of nanotechnology in the production of the medicine and its significant effect in clinical studies, the medicine was allowed to be used by the public according to the approval of the Legal Commission of Medicine Department of the Health Ministry.

The medicine will be soon presented to the drug stores and hospitals across the country in order to be consumed.

Rezayat, the head of the Nanotechnology Commission of Food and Medicine Organization, confirmed that the medicine has succeeded in obtaining the approval of the commission.

According to Rezayat, this valuable research is the result of the cooperation and synergy between Food and Medicine Organization and Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council.

According to him, files are open in this Committee for about 100 products, among which 50 are currently completing the documents required for obtaining the permission. Half of the abovementioned products are related to devices and equipment, 20 are classified in cosmetics and hygienic group, and nine are related to medicine group.
