Lesya Anfinogenova, Group Product Manager of the Cold Relief Drugs Business Unit of JSC Valenta Pharm: “An overwhelming majority of acute respiratory infections in children is accompanied by sore throats, while the pain in the oropharynx is unpleasant for children and significantly undermines their life quality. It’s not so easy to choose a medicineto treat inflammatory throat infections in pediatry, because the drug has to meet special requirements: it should have both a wide-spectrum antimicrobial effect to be able to affect the cause of the disease and a positive safety profile - low allergenic potency and no irritation. The medicine should work in the focus of the pain and inflammation and not get absorbed into the blood stream. It’s also important that children should like the flavor of the drug, because comfort in treatment is one of the components of fast recovery. So, we’re pleased to offer patients well-known and widely clinically tested Grammidin® for kids in the form of spray, which many doctors and patients prefer.”
