The company portfolio includes three heritage branded products acquired from Novartis – all proven and acknowledged to improve patients’ health. ALTURiX reliably supplies these products to the NHS and other international markets, using its manufacturing partner based in Switzerland. This is in keeping with the company’s commitment to reliably deliver high-quality products, at a sensible price.
In addition, for the last five years the company has been growing rapdily through a programme of new product acquisitions, and market introductions.
Commenting on the agreement, Dr Simon Clough – Founder and Director at ALTURiX said, “We are delighted to announce this deal with HELM for such an important product for UK thyroid patients – especially as this is International Thyroid Awareness Week. The agreement for liothyronine is the latest example of our successful growth strategy, and further demonstrates the company’s commitment to reliably and affordably supply important products like this, to increase the currently-limited options available to patients and the NHS.”
