The Granting of Marketing Authorizations in Turkey – The Turkish Medicines and Medical Devices Agency (TMMDA) has approved the transfer of marketing authorizations for “SIFI”, a leading ophthalmic company, headquartered in Italy, focusing on eye care since 1935.
Leading ophthalmic products, including NETILDEX®, NETIRA® and EYESTIL® will soon be marketed directly by SIFI Ilaç. In light of the approved marketing authorizations from its former local distributor to its wholly owned subsidiary SIFI İlaç A.S., the company expects to start distributing the leading ophthalmic products, including NETILDEX®, NETIRA® and EYESTIL® directly in Turkey.
A full-fledged organization, including a field sales staff, is now being implemented by SIFI Ilaç in order to expand its reach among ophthalmologists and other significant market participants.
“These approvals represent a key milestone in strengthening SIFI’s competitive position in Europe. Thanks to the hard work of our former distributor TEKA Ilaç, our products are well-known and much appreciated in the Turkish ophthalmic community,” commented Gilberto Dalesio, SIFI’s Chief Commercial Officer. “We are delighted to continue providing Turkish patients and physicians with our proven products for the effective treatment of most common ocular disorders,” added Nahide Sarisin, General Manager of SIFI İlaç, “We also look forward to bring further innovations from our R&D pipeline to address unmet needs, as a sign of SIFI’s long-term commitment to Turkey.”
With its headquarters in Italy and a primary focus on eye care since 1935, SIFI is a renowned ophthalmic company. Innovative therapeutic treatments are created, produced, and sold by SIFI for use by patients with ocular diseases.
With a direct presence in Italy, Spain, France, Romania, Mexico, and Turkey, SIFI is totally devoted to using its R&D to improve the quality of life for patients. SIFI exports treatments to more than 20 different countries globally.
