Alfa Intes for Social

socialeokALFA INTES has always cooperated with international organizations (WHO, UNICEF, Doctors without Borders) through the provision of pharmaceutical products for the treatment of serious diseases affecting developing countries.
In particular, it yields a specific ophthalmic ointment for the treatment of trachoma, the leading cause of blindness in the Third World, where one in four people are affected by this serious disease and loss of sight.
Trachoma is an infectious disease caused by a microorganism, Chlamydia trachomatis, and poor sanitation facilitate the spread that occurs from person to person. Children and women are particularly affected, as well as representing the reservoir of infection. Prevention is, therefore, very important, but the treatment of endemic forms is a challenge to the international non-profit organizations which are dedicated to a particular effort. The use of eye ointments based on tetracycline antibiotic is the mainstay of treatment of trachoma and where international programs have operated, eg. in Morocco, trachoma was defeated.
The contribution of Alfa Intes this battle is active: thanks to its manufacturing facilities are dispensed every year several million packs of tetracycline ointment.
