Better together against acid-related diseases

1 min. read

We organised Krka’s international symposium in Barcelona during the United European Gastroenterology Week (UEGW) that was held at the end of October. Internationally renowned experts came to the conclusion that we are better together against acid-related diseases. The symposium was attended by over 100 gastroenterologists from 12 countries.

Symposium participants (from left to right): prof. Srđan Đuranović (Serbia), Ronald Korthouwer, Product Manager (Krka), prof. Marco Bruno (the Netherlands), Tina Dular Meglič, Deputy Head of Product Marketing Pharmaceuticals (Krka), prof. Jaroslaw Regula (Poland), prof. Alexey V. Okhlobystin (the Russian Federation).

The participants were greeted by Tina Dular Meglič, Deputy Head of Product Marketing Pharmaceuticals. A panel discussion followed during which the lecturers discussed ways in which we could be even better together. This can be achieved in a variety of ways: cooperation between Krka and gastroenterologists, exchange of knowledge and experience and the fact that a combination of Krka medicines (proton pump inhibitor, two antibiotics and bismuth) effectively treats Helicobacter pylori infection.

By organising this successful symposium we have once again demonstrated that we are one of the leading generic producers of proton pump inhibitors in Europe, and also reinforced the trust of gastroenterologists.
