Beijing Municipal Health Bureau, China Pharmaceutical Industry Research and Development Association, Zhejiang Beta Pharma, and Beijing Chest Hospital under Capital University of Medical Sciences recently held a ceremony in Beijing for the establishment of new offices for handing out Conmana, China’s first independently developed small molecule-targeted anti-cancer drug, free of charge.

Conmana was developed by Zhejiang Beta Pharma, and went on sales in August 2011. The company has decided to establish offices in more than 40 cities across the country to hand out the drug to people in need free of charge.
