Kedrion is an international company that collects and fractionates blood plasma to produce and distribute plasma-derived therapeutic products for use in treating serious diseases, disorders and conditions such as hemophilia and immune system deficiencies.
Kedrion was established in Italy in 2001, but the roots of the companies from which it was born stretch back several decades in the production of blood and plasma derived products. A primarily family-owned business, it places a high value not only on the welfare of those who benefit from its products but also on the people and communities where it operates.
Kedrion around the world
Kedrion Biopharma has a long history of collaboration with the Italian National Health System, and partners the country in its move toward self-sufficiency in plasma-derived products. We bring this experience and the dedication to that goal to potential partners around the world. In recent years Kedrion has expanded its operations – not only into the United States through Kedrion Biopharma Inc., but into Germany and Hungary as well. It now has a market presence in about 100 countries. In addition, it has acquired collection and production capacity as well as the rights to significant products for treating hemophilia and preventing Rh sensitization, a condition which can lead to Hemolytic Disease of the Fetus and the Newborn (HDFN).
Kedrion looks forward to continued expansion and the wider sharing of its experience, know-how and technology to foster self-sufficiency of plasma-derived products in healthcare systems and communities around the world and to bring healthier and less restricted lives to people suffering from rare disorders.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person*
Sometimes, natural, accidental or social causes obstruct the natural right to life, liberty and personal security. Because of the special nature of its products, Kedrion supports people, communities and institutions in reducing or removing those obstacles that prevent people enjoying such rights. Kedrion helps turn the natural rights (life, liberty, security) into the social right to live in the best possible conditions.
For this reason, it collects and converts, makes active and usable that vital energy that is generated and regenerated, preserved and carried through blood; so that it can be transferred from one human being to the next, and anyone can enjoy one’s fundamental rights.
