Active pharmaceutical ingredients, or APIs, are responsible for the therapeutic effects of medicines. We are one of the world’s largest producers of APIs, providing them to customers in more than 100 countries.
We are the leading producer of API used in generic antiretrovirals, which treat HIV/AIDS. We also produce API for products in these areas:
- Central nervous system agents
- Proton pump inhibitors
As with any Viatris product or effort, quality begins at step one. We use an established testing and verification process to help ensure the suitability of active ingredients used in our medicines.
Being a manufacturer of API makes us one of the few global pharmaceutical companies with a comprehensive, vertically integrated supply chain. This provides us with an extra measure in the quality process that we can own, and it also helps us maintain deep insight into diverse markets and therapeutic segments.
