In the 1990s the company also went public offering its shares on the Bombay Stock exchange.

Research and development
The relatively new direction in pharmaceutical research is the creation of complex molecules, biotechnological medications that modify the body’s response to the disease rather than chemical substances that influence the disease themselves. Unique Pharmaceuticals is one of the leading Indian pharmaceutical producers to engage in such research as it had purchased a biotechnology company almost 10 years ago when other companies were only considering the integration of biotechnology in their business.
Besides the biotechnological research, the company also works on the development of novel preparation delivery systems, improvement of existing formulations, for instance, to cut the number of times the pills should be taken a day, and so on.
Unique Pharmaceuticals is initiating charitable project sponsoring primary and vocational training for the unprivileged social classes. Beside, Unique Pharmaceuticals tightly works with hospitals and medical professionals to better understand the needs of its country, sponsors the vaccination programs, organizes diagnostic camps and provides vulnerable classes of the population with essential medications.
The company is first to help its country’s population in force majeure, for instance, it helped to rebuilt Vavania village after the Gujarat earthquake. It also works on minimizing the pollution of the environment produced by its plants and sponsors various environmental projects about which you can find out more visiting the company’s official website.
Products by Unique Pharmaceuticals you can get at our drugstore
At the moment, at our range of goods you can find the following products made by this company:
- Adalat (Nifedipine) is an antihypertensive drug, dihydropyridine derivative, and antagonist of calcium ions. The medication’s effect is due to the inhibition of the calcium ions flow through the membrane of cardiomyocytes and smooth muscles of blood vessels, which leads to a decrease in the storing of calcium inside the cells. This causes the expansion of the coronary arteries, peripheral blood vessels, which causes a decrease in the total peripheral vascular resistance and, consequently, a decrease in the load on the heart, increasing oxygen supply to the myocardium. The pills are prescribed to be used in arterial hypertension, stable angina, angina pectoris, migraine attacks, renal, intestinal or liver colic and other conditions when a strong spasmolytic effect is required. The medication can be found in our Blood pressure medications section.
Prior to starting the therapy with any medications from our drugstore, consult a healthcare specialist.
