Iranian researchers have succeeded to produce six new drugs, including several medications for breast cancer and Factor VIII deficiency.
The newly developed medications would be unveiled by September, 2012, said the Deputy Head of Iranian Ministry of Health for Research and Technology Mostafa Qanei.
He went on to say that the new drugs are as effective as the foreign versions of the medication but are less pricey.
In recent years, Iran has taken several steps in production and marketing of the newest generation of biotechnological medicines and nano drugs which need a very sophisticated technology.
With a record of over 400 medical research facilities and 76 medical magazine indexes in the country, Iran is estimated to be one of the world's top 10 countries in medical research.
