"The government contributed to the funding of this project in recognition of our company's strong commitment to the narcotic drug and psychiatric treatment business. Government endorsement of our efforts can also be seen in our recent receipt of authorization from the China FDA (CFDA) to initiate four drug programs, including Lorcaserin Hydrochloride tablets and Lorcaserin Hydrochloride API (active pharmaceutical ingredient), weight-reduction drugs for overweight and obese patients, as well as Caffeine tablets (for swallowing) and Caffeine buccal tablets (for dissolving in the mouth), for the management of mental fatigue and headache.
