Under the license agreement, TannerLAC will be responsible for the registration, commercialization and promotion of Hepilor® in Latin American countries. The official launch of the product in this region, including Mexico and most countries throughout Central and South America, is expected for 2024.

Carolina Cortez, EVP of TannerLAC, commented “Given the increasing number of patients developing gastrointestinal disorders worldwide, we were very pleased when we were introduced to Hepilor® by PB Pharma Group. This product has different formulations that act directly on digestive system mucosa and can treat a variety of diseases. We have heard touching testimonies of patients who have been positively impacted with the use of the product. Therefore, we are eager to work with AFI’s innovative team to bring Hepilor® to Latin America and help many patients in need.”
