SINCE 1998 WORKING
TO ENABLE HEALTH ACCESS
MAKING IT A GLOBAL REALITY
MDM PHARMA, one of the Group’s more recent international endeavours, is a pharmaceutical wholesaling company specialized in supply of unregistered products (mostly rare disease and orphan drugs) worldwide.
With offices and warehouses in the island of Madeira and in Lisbon (both in Portugal), MDM PHARMA supplies pharmaceutical products that are unavailable or difficult to access in various markets throughout the world, always at competitive prices. We are able to supply all available pharmaceutical products, thriving in innovative formulations of specialized fields such as oncology, hepatology, rare diseases or disorders, orphan drugs and generally “hard-to-get” products.
Sourcing only from reliable and legitimate suppliers (either directly from the marketing authorization holder or from authorized wholesalers fully compliant to European GDP standards) and with years of experience in international transport and logistics in pharma, we can guarantee that all the products we distribute are of top quality.
Our verified supplier network enables us to offer pharmaceutical products not only from any European origin, US and Canada origin, but also other reliable origins throughout the world wherever the products are available.
All our warehouses are fully equipped and hold valid WDL issued by the competent authorities. MDM PHARMA has temperature-controlled units that allow us to store any pharmaceutical product in pristine conditions, whatever the storage requirement (colds chain, controlled room temperature or other) may be.
All the transport or forwarding agents that collaborate with us are obliged to comply with our transport policy (fully compliant with European GDP standards), thus, ensuring that the products are not affected in any way during transport. We have successfully delivered numerous temperature-controlled pharmaceutical products worldwide, ensuring that there was no temperature variation that could have affected the quality of the products.
We supply directly to patients, distributors, clinics and hospitals (both private or government owned), depending on local demand and always compliant to all applicable regulation from local authorities. Working closely with physicians and technical staff, we ensure access to safe and reliable pharmaceutical products at competitive prices for the benefit of payers and patients alike.
HELPING PATIENTS | NAMED PATIENT PROGRAMS
Nothing is more dramatic than a diagnosed patient who is unable to access the best available treatment for his or her condition. Unfortunately, this happens more than one
Often, for some reason, a product may not be available in the country where it is required. A product may be available in one country but not in another or may have been discontinued; whatever the reason, this situation can lead to patient inaccessibility to a treatment that is required.
MDM PHARMA can aid healthcare professionals and patients, anywhere in the world, obtaining the products they require efficiently. We have experience working in various regulatory environments. Should local regulation require a “direct-to-patient” approach, working with an authorized importer (hospital, wholesaler or pharmacy), or responding to tendering processes; MDM PHARMA is able to accommodate all requirements to best serve the patient!
WORKING WITH MANUFACTURERS | PRE-REGISTRATION ACCESS PROGRAMS
– Allow for additional risk management in a contained environment:
– allowing additional assessment of the product potential prior to full-launch;
– appropriate patient selection and monitoring (particularly relevant for event capture);
– Additional real-world data very useful in future clinical practice.
– Builds the relationship with physicians and patients:
– allowing physicians experience in the use to the product, possibly creating advocates even prior to launch;
– enables patient access and acquaintance with the product.
ACTIVITY IN SOUTH AMERICA
Although we attend requests worldwide, due to historical ties between Portugal and
Brazil, MDM PHARMA strategically initiated its activities in the supply of unregistered
drugs by focusing in South American markets. Here we serve the public entities
(government tenders and hospitals) as well as the private sector (direct to patient and
partnering with healthcare operators). To be able to better serve this market, MDM
PHARMA opened a representation office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: MDM PHARMA
MDM PHARMA BRASIL leverages our activity locally, enabling MDM PHARMA to be the
most efficient possible regarding local logistic activities (namely customs clearance and
delivery to patients), also increasing our commercial outreach.
We have been actively supplying both public but mostly private sector clients with
pharmaceuticals that are not available locally, with no domestic representation (direct
or indirect) of the manufacturer. We have amassed significant experience dealing with
transits and clearing customs in what we have experienced to be one of the most
document heavy environments we operate in.
