“Vaccine preservatives would be imported through a French company for years, but now it has been around 10 years that they haven’t supplied Iran with this oil due to sanctions,” said Mostafa Zandieh, the CEO of the Iranian knowledge-based Pasook Company.
“Fortunately, with innovation and thanks to measures adopted at this company, we managed to formulate a vaccine preservative oil,” he explained as quoted by the Center for Communications and Information Dissemination of the Vice-Prediency for Science, Technology and Knowledge-based Economy.
“This company was founded in 1994 by a number of retired experts of the Razi Vaccine & Serum Research Institute,” he noted, pointing to the Iranian company engaged in production of medical items.
He underlined the company has produced different types of vaccines ever since, including an antigen influenza vaccine.
He explained that all the products developed by the company have been produced for the first time in the country.
