By Mehdi Sepahvand – Trend:

Azerbaijan is going to import fatty liver medicine from Iran, according to the Iranian manufacturer of the drug.

“The marketing phase of the job has been carried out in Azerbaijan and the product has been welcomed there. Only registering the order in Azerbaijan remains,” Hossein Gorji, manager for branding at Tabiat Zendeh Laboratories, told Trend Sept. 13.

Fatty liver is a reversible condition wherein large vacuoles of triglyceride fat accumulate in liver cells via the process of steatosis.

Tabiat Zendeh Laboratories is a producer of organic, herbal drugs based in central Iranian province of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad.

According to Gorji, the Iranian company is also exporting saffron concentrate to Switzerland, hair growth products to Malaysia, and kidney stone drops to Iraq.

According to the Azerbaijani State Customs Committee, Azerbaijan’s trade turnover with Iran in January-July 2017 amounted to $148.9 million, of which $139.1 million accounted for import of Iranian products.
