Science & Innovation
PuraPharm is a pioneer in the modernization of Chinese medicine and our strong research and development capability has been a critical success factor to the sustainable development of our business. Being a research-focused company, PuraPharm collaborates with world-class research institutes across the health landscapes including academic scientists, non-government organizations (NGOs), governments, other biopharmaceutical companies and clinicians. For years we have invested into both the macro- and micro-approach of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) studies.
PuraPharm collaborates with various leading universities worldwide to focus on the standardization of Concentrated Chinese Medicine Granules (CCMG) products. We collaborate with the Chinese University of Hong Kong to collaborate with them on a series of projects targeted at the material characterization of over 500 raw Chinese medicinal extracts to enhance our production and extraction technologies. In 2002, in recognition of our research and development expertise, PuraPharm was selected by the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine (SATCM) “國家中醫藥管理局” of the PRC to undertake the CCMG combination formulation research project to review and advise on the use of CCMG combo formulae products in China. In 2003, we were also designated by the Ministry of Science and Technology of the PRC to conduct quality specification and clinical efficacy on CCMG combo formulae products as part of China’s Tenth National Five-Year Plan. In 2004, PuraPharm was subsequently selected as one of the then six pilot manufacturers licensed by the China’s Food & Drug Administration (CFDA) to manufacture and sell CCMG products in China.
