LAIYANG, China, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Jiangbo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: JGBO) (the "Company" or "Jiangbo"), a pharmaceutical company with its principal operations in China, today announced that its Osteomyelitis treatment tablets (Kang Gu Sui Yan Pian) has been included in the 2009 Edition of the National Basic Medical Insurance, Industrial Injury Insurance and Maternity Insurance Medicine Directory ("the Directory").
Jiangbo is the exclusive manufacturer of Osteomyelitis treatment tablets in China. This product is used to treat bone and bone marrow inflammations. It's a 100% herb-based traditional Chinese medicine. Most osteomyelitis patients currently use chemical drugs such as antibiotics for treatment which may develop drug resistance if the chemical drugs are taken over a long period of time. Chronic patients are also likely to need surgery which is a less preferable treatment for patients in China. Jiangbo's Osteomyelitis treatment tablets offer an alternative mild treatment and were clinically tested to be effective in treating long term osteomyelitis problems.
The Company has four other products which have been included in the Directory. They are Radix Isatidis Granules, Motherwort Herb Electuary (Yi Mu Cao Gao), Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride tablets and Paracetamol tablets. Currently, the Company is producing limited quantities of these four products.
"The inclusion of Osteomyelitis treatment tablets in the 2009 Edition Directory is an important accomplishment for our Company," said Mr. Wubo Cao, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "As its exclusive manufacture, we expect the inclusion of Osteomyelitis treatment tablets in the Directory to drive meaningful sales volume growth in future."
