The business idea is to document and promote AndoSan™ as an efficient immune stimulating agent that positively supports people’s health.
ImmunoPharma AS is a research-based company targeting immune stimulating substances incorporated in 2009. The plan is to position AndoSan™ as a standard complementary medical food to medical treatment with various drugs at hospitals. In addition the team is also working to explore the position for AndoSan™ as a “stand alone drug” for treatment of various infectious diseases.
Research Based Company
Continuously searching for opportunities
Andosan™ has unique benefits on the immune system
Proof of concept, time to focus on sales
We will continue to establish new products through science and clinical trials, supported by unique competences and capital.
Our business idea is to document and promote AndoSan™ as an efficient immune stimulating treatment that support people's health. Ultimately, we want AndoSan™ to be included a complementary part of standardized medical treatment regimes.
The primary goal is to gain acceptance for AndoSan™ as part of standardized treatment regimens within the public health service.
Other potentially interesting areas of application includes multi resistant bacterial infections and various allergies. In addition to the medical market, improved production and reduced production costs will open up a considerable potential for a health supporting supplement in the mass-market.
