Recently, Gan & Lee Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Gan & Lee, stock code: 603087. SH), is pleased to announce that the insulin injection pen and pen needle registered by Gan & Lee Brazil, an overseas subsidiary of Gan & Lee, have been officially listed. This is the first time that the products have been approved with the Gan & Lee's brand in Brazil, enhancing Gan & Lee's globalization goal.


According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) Atlas 10th edition, as of 2021, about 33 million adults (aged 20 to 79) in Latin America have diabetes, with Brazil ranking first in the number of people with diabetes, with approximately  15.7 million (20 to 79 years old), accounting for 47.5% of the total number of people with diabetes in Latin America1.

 

"With Brazil being a key country in the strategy of globalization, this approval has laid the foundation for our products to enter the Latin American market in the future. This is an important milestone for the Gan & Lee brand. We expect to see more business results achieved from overseas subsidiaries to inject new vitality into globalization.” said Jason Wu, Senior Director of the International Business Affairs Department in Gan & Lee Pharmaceuticals.
