Frank­furt a. M. — The Neur­ax­ph­arm Group has acqui­red two product port­fo­lios from Sanofi, which are marke­ted globally in over 50 count­ries. With the pending acqui­si­tion, Neur­ax­ph­arm aims to streng­then its posi­tion as a leading Euro­pean specialty phar­maceu­ti­cal company focu­sed on central nervous system disor­ders and expand its global foot­print.
