Biocon announced the signing of a semi-exclusive distribution and supply agreement with Medix, a speciality pharmaceutical company in Mexico, for the commercialisation of its vertically integrated drug product, Liraglutide (gSaxenda), used in the treatment of chronic weight management.

Carlos Abelleyra, CEO, Medix, commented, “According to the WHO, Mexico is the 2nd country with the highest prevalence of overweight and obesity worldwide. At Medix, we continue to innovate with solutions to treat the burden of the disease, and its negative impact on the quality of life of people living with it. Our partnership with Biocon will bring quality and affordability into the pharmacological options for the physician, which supports our vision.”
