A unique mission

Medunik USA is dedicated to providing Americans suffering from rare diseases with access to orphan drugs that are not currently available in the U.S. We make these treatment options available by building strategic partnerships with international companies to bring their products to the American market. 

Through in-licensing partnerships, Medunik USA offers turn-key operations and provides medical scientific liaisons, approval and market access processes and marketing for orphan disease treatments.

History

Message from our management

"Patients in the U.S. living with rare diseases don’t always have access to the orphan therapies available in other countries. When a disease is so rare, developing and marketing a medication to treat it can simply be too long and expensive a process for most drug companies to undertake. But Medunik USA believes that patients suffering from rare diseases are no less deserving of effective treatment options than those suffering from more common conditions. That’s why Medunik USA has made it our mission to bring orphan drugs to the U.S. We form strategic partnerships with pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies worldwide that enable us to bring orphan drugs to the U.S. market and ensure that Americans living with rare diseases have access to the most effective treatments available anywhere."
