Biopharmaceutical company Sinobiopharma Inc. focuses on anesthesia-assisted agents and cardiovascular drugs. The company today announced an agreement with Anhui Xianfeng Pharmaceuticals Co. Ltd (Xianfeng) to manufacture and co-market Clindamycin and L-alanyl-L-glutamine.

Clindamycin is an antibiotic used to treat anaerobic bacterial infections, some protozoal diseases (such as malaria), and is also used as a topical acne treatment cream; parenteral nutrition product L-alanyl-L-glutamine is prescribed for patients after surgery.
