What customers say
For me as Contract Research Organisation (CRO) the Marketing Authorisation Holder Drug Dictionaries are a big help to find SmPCs of the different MAHs in the authorised markets.
What is practical is that you can find ALL the articles that are sold in the pharmacy in one portal: Medicines on the market, medical products, aids etc. on the market, medicines withdrawn from the market, foreign medicines etc..
We use the ABDA-Database German SMPC Drug Dictionary Medicines and International Medicines to offer our customers, in particular pharmacies and hospitals, international procurement opportunities for locally unavailable medicines (in Germany, for example, individual imports in accordance with §73.3 AMG). Thank you very much for your fast and good service!
