What Type Of Agreement Did Sanofi And Sinopharm Sign In China ?

October 8, 2012

       Per an October 7, 2012 article, Sanofi and Sinopharm (China State Institute of Pharmaceutical Industry) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in Shanghai to conduct joint research on rare diseases and treatment in China. 

         This is 1st reported in a September 28, 2012 article. The purpose of this agreement is “to accelerate the translation of research results into new medicines and therapies for rare disease patients in China”. 

          As reported in several Orphan Druganaut Blog Posts, China doesn’t have an “official” definition or regulation of rare diseases and orphan drugs :
