The Head  Quarters
Ever since its inception, Shantha Biotechnics Private Limited has played a significant role in the nation's drive for self-reliance. When most of the life saving drugs and vaccines were being imported by paying exhorbitant prices, Shantha Biotechnics concentrated on research and development of indigenous production of vaccines to control dreaded infections like Hepatitis-B.

With state-of-the-art Research and Development (R&D) facilities and an experienced and eminent technical team,The R&D strength Shantha Biotech's efforts were fructified in 1997. The company became the first Indian pharmaceutical unit to produce genetically engineered Hepatitis-B vaccine through indigenously developed technology. The vaccine, brand named SHANVAC-B, was so effective and economical, that the government of India showed interest in including this vaccine in its countrywide vaccination programmes to eradicate Hepatitis-B, alongwith Polio, Tetanus and Diphtheria.

Successful development of Hepatitis-B vaccine brought several laurels to Shantha Biotech. The company was honoured with the All India Biotech Association (AIBA) Award-1997 for the The life savers'Best Invention of the Year', The prestigious Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR) National Award-1998 for 'Best R&D Efforts', and the National Technology Award-1999 for 'Successful Development and Commercialisation of Indigenous Technology'.

Besides manufacturing the lifesaving vaccine Shanvac-B, Shantha Biotech entered into direct marketing to keep the prices as low as possible by eliminating the middlemen. For this purpose, the company organised 'Pedicon 2000', a three-day national conference of Indian Academy of Paediatrics in January last to develop direct relations with the paediatricians.

Development of Strepto Kinase Diagnostic kits, more effective treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, new vaccines against Hepatitis-C and Hepatitis-E and new generation vaccine against Hepatitis-B are some of the projects in the pipeline of Shantha Biotech.
