In a striking nod to innovation, Alkaloid AD Skopje’s ppioneering liquid Omeprazole formulation has clinched the 2023 Patent of the Year, unveiled in conjunction with World Intellectual Property Day festivities.

With its patent secured across approximately thirty nations, including its home base of Macedonia, Alkaloid AD has not only broadened its global footprint but has also significantly ameliorated the therapeutic landscape for those in dire need of gastroenterological relief. This accolade underscores a potent blend of scientific acumen and international cooperation, casting a bright spotlight on the future of pharmaceutical ingenuity.
