NPO Petrovax Pharm was officially established in 1996, but the pharmaceutical product development had been initiated long before this date.
Thirty years prior to the announcement of the State Strategy Pharma-2020, a team of Russian likeminded scientists that included chemists, biologists, immunologists, and biotechologists, led by Prof. A.V. Nekrasov, came up with an idea of converting a high molecular weight chemical compound into a medicinal product.
Their joint efforts, for the first time in the world, yielded a class of high molecular weight compounds, namely, heterochain aliphatic polyamines and derivatives. This has marked a new era in pharmacology
