Molteni today and tomorrow

Molteni Farmaceutici’s new plant in Florence is a modern facility, with innovative technological and scientific equipment, at the forefront in terms of quality and production volumes, and highly qualified staff; its flagship is its new sterile division for the aseptic production of injectables.
Molteni Farmaceutici entered the new millennium as a protagonist thanks to the intensive, high-level research activity being carried out at its own operating unit and with the collaboration of prestigious universities. For pain therapy, in particular, new active molecules and formulations to eliminate the side effects of narcotics are under study. In anesthesiology, efforts are focused on developing drugs ensuring equal efficacy at lower doses. For addiction, research is investigating formulations capable of improving patient compliance, while enhancing safety.
The year 2006 saw the creation of Molteni Therapeutics, a spin-off from the Molteni Research Group whose products are based on innovative photodynamic technology.
