Sangui BioTech GmbH has licensed the respective rights to its affiliate SastoMed GmbH. SastoMed is already distributing Granulox in Germany.

The largest customer purchasing from the first delivery of Granulox to Mexico is the State of Tamaulipas. Here, governmental health institutions will be equipped with the wound therapeutic. Granulox is being applied as a spray. Main indications are chronic wounds, originating in most cases in lack of oxygen supply (hypoxia) or insufficient blood flow to the respective part of the body.

Expansion to Mexico is seen as the first step to addressing this market.
