In the course of discussion at the special session on medical technologies, Petrovax Pharm President Elena Arkhangelskyaya emphasized that the Russian-Iranian cooperation was gaining ground with support from the government. «It is a pleasure to take part in the Inotex 2016 conference in Tehran. The main objective of this conference is the development of partnership between the two countries, sharing of best practices, and discussion of important strategic issues," stressed Elena Arkhangelskyaya. » For us Iran is one of the key emerging markets. We intend to strengthen our hold on this market, and we have worked out a  long-term development strategy. Importantly, our influenza vaccine Grippol plus manufactured in cooperation with St. Petersburg Research Institute of Vaccines and Sera is the Russian first high-tech immunobiological product registered in Iran».

In February 2016, Petrovax Pharm (Russia), Sobhan Recombinant Protein, and Arvin LTD (both Iran) made a trilateral strategic cooperation agreement aimed at localization of  full-cycle manufacture of influenza vaccine Grippol® plus in Iran. One more Russian party to this project is St. Petersburg Research Institute of Vaccines and Sera of the Russian Federal Medical and Biological Agency that produces and supplies vaccine antigens.
