Piramal Critical Care, Medivant Healthcare enter partnership to supply injectable drugs for COVID patients in US
Mumbai: Piramal Critical Care on Wednesday said it has partnered with US-based pharmaceutical outsourcing facility Medivant Healthcare to address the severe shortage of injectable drugs in hospitals across the United States.
Through this partnership, the company and Medivant Healthcare will work together to distribute single-dose injectable drugs in approved states for COVID-19 patients that have fallen dangerously short in supply, Piramal Critical Care said in a statement.
