Managing director of Shifa Pharmed Industrial Group has stated that Iran is the only producer of Penicillin G in the Middle East.

Ali Sharif Alam said that as a strategic product, for the first time, Penicillin G, which is among the most widely used antibiotics in the world, has been produced domestically by the efforts of Iranian researchers, published by ISNA news agency’s Persian website.

He explained that Iran is now the only producer of Penicillin G in the Middle East and that production of the antibiotic indigenously will help save the country in times of crisis or war.

As Sharif Alam declared, producing Penicillin G from living cells is the most significant feature of this product. Benzylpenicillin (Penicillin G) is narrow spectrum antibiotic used to treat infections caused by susceptible bacteria.
