Iran produces own infertility treatment
Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 1/Trend M. Moezzi/
Iranian researchers have domestically produced medication to treat infertility, the Iranian Students' News Agency (ISNA) reported.
Dr. Fereydoun Mahboudi, a faculty member at the Pasteur Institute of Iran and the head of the project, said Cinnal F increases ovulation in women.
A trial study is being conducted at the Imam Khomeini and Shariati hospitals and will continue for the next year.
Cinnal F has the required permits to enter the market and to be priced, Dr. Mahboudi told ISNA.
Iran imports $14 million (USD) of "Cinnal F" annually and the drug is sold for $20 a vial.
The medicine's domestically produced version will cost 30 percent less.
