The company “R-farm” thanks to the marking system was able to identify the illegal sale of drugs by about 100 million rubles. This was stated by the Director of the health Economics of the company Alexander Bykov, writes TASS.
“The damage we have prevented through the introduction of labelling of medicines only for several of our drugs is about hundreds of millions of rubles”, – said Bykov, adding that it also allowed to prevent risk to the health and lives of patients.
Bulls noted that the marking ensures the quality present in the pharmaceutical drug market, the increase in the cost of medicines due to the introduction of marking is not expected.
