  • 1988

    Development and commercialization of the first and unique association of amoxicillin, beta-lactam drug, with sulbactam, beta-lactamase inhibitor: TRIFAMOX IBL, in the world.

  • 2001

    Development, design and commercialization of the first sublingual formulation of alprazolam anxiolytic: TRANQUINAL SUBLINGUAL.

  • 2002

    Development, design and commercialization of ULCOZOL COMPRIMIDOS (TABLETS), special formulation of omeprazole (antiulcer drug).

  • 2005

    The first controlled clinical trial for TRANQUINAL SUBLINGUAL as a sleep inducer (ALCMEON 47, yer XV, vol.12 n3, Oct. 2005: pp: 262-270).

  • 2007

    Design and development of Omeprazole powder for oral suspension, offering sustained and rapid antacid action (DUAL ACTION). Its approval by the ANMAT enabled the rational use of omeprazole in pediatrics given its fast action and the possibility to prepare a solution to administer according to mg/kg of weight.

  • 2008

    Development, design and commercialization of the first antibiotic in chewable tablets of Argentina: (amoxicillin 250 and 500 mg.). It facilitates the dosing scheme in Pediatrics, as well as in several types of adult patients, in order to achieve better adherence to the drug therapy.

  • 2008

    Development, design and commercialization of the first chewable tablet of DICLOFENAC in Argentina: DIOXAFLEX. Innovative formulation (microencapsulated diclofenac) that allows obtaining adequate plasmatic levels of diclofenac for an optimum benefit-risk relation.

  • 2009

    The higher efficacy and usefulness of Ulcozol Rapid to provide an enhancing therapeutic alternative in the handling of gastroesophageal reflux in pediatrics was evidenced. (Clinical trials were published in Acta Gastroenterológica Latinoamericana, presented at the US Conference on Gastroenterology “DD-Week”, and one of these clinical trials was pre-selected for an award at the Conference held by the Argentine Association of Gastroenterology 2009).

  • 2010

    Laboratorios Bagó was the first pharmaceutical company in the market to associate Diclofenac and Omeprazole in a single capsule. A pharmacokinetic study proved that the new formulation of DIOXAFLEX PROTECT assures a correct absorption of both active ingredients.
