Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Ltd., a research-led globally integrated pharmaceutical company, today announced the launch of Nourkrin® in Russia.

Nourkrin® Woman and Nourkrin® Man will be exclusively marketed in Russia by Glenmark Impex LLC, the Russian subsidiary of Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Ltd., under a licensing agreement with Denmark- headquartered firm Pharma Medico ApS.
