Cadila Healthcare Limited (Zydus Cadila), an innovation-driven global healthcare company has entered into an exclusive agreement for the technology know-how for varicella vaccine production in the Russian Federation with Pharm Aid Ltd., headquartered in Russia. The exclusive agreement was signed at the BIOTECHMED conference in Gelendzhik, Russia. Pharm Aid Ltd, has been set up by Nacimbio together with Ishvan Pharmaceuticals Ltd., for the localization of innovative vaccine production in Russia.

Through this agreement, Zydus gains access to the public and private market segments in the Russian Federation, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan. With an absence of assured supply of indigenously manufactured varicella vaccine, this vaccine does not feature currently in the National Immunisation Programme. The agreement aims to bring in a continuous supply of vaccines which could be included in the critical childhood immunization programme. The demand is estimated at 3 million doses per annum in the Russian Federation alone.
