Dr Natrajan Ranganathan, Founder and Managing Director, Kibow Biotech, said: "We can together offer the benefits of my 20 years of research to millions of Indian patients suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and make their lives better. Kibow also has an interesting research pipeline which we hope to bring to India for the benefit of Indian patients."

S.D. Sawant, Chairman and MD, Centaur Pharmaceuticals, said: "Kibow has a strong research infrastructure and expertise in modulating gut micro biome. Through this alliance, Centaur will leverage Kibow's research expertise and its own strong manufacturing and marketing skills to offer hope in the form of Renadyl to patients in India suffering from CKD. We are happy to announce this alliance in the backdrop of World Kidney Day and World Women's Day coming up on March 8."
