Organization Description:

Farmabrasilis is a non-governmental, non-profit research network bringing together Brazilian, Chilean, American and European scientists and people devoted to the research and development of new medicines and technologies for the benefit of economically disadvantaged populations and individuals affected by neglected diseases.

Since 1987, Farmabrasilis has been developing innovative and efficient medicaments for infectious diseases and cancer.


Research and development of new medicaments and technologies for the benefit of economically disadvantaged populations and individuals affected by neglected diseases.


1- Build an open model for research and development of pharmaceuticals,

2- Create and disseminate new strategies for research and development of medicines and related technologies in favour of economically disadvantaged populations,

3- Expand and ensure the development of technologies to support translational research,

4-Transfer the production technology of our products free of charge for use by neglected diseases and populations.


When appropriate, our medicines can be licensed without royalties in order to allow their use by populations that would otherwise be unable to purchase them.


Farmabrasilis is seeking collaborators and partners for the production and distribution of new medicaments for the benefit of neglected diseases and populations.

We are also sharing with the scientific community and instituitions devoted to neglected diseases and populations our new medicines.

Furthermore, we are open to forging alliances with individual researchers, research networks and other scientific institutions to pursue new research lines, including TB.

Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

One of the most important goals of our organization is to contribute to the fight against TB, leishmaniaisis, malaria and other infectious diseases, particularly in developing countries, where the problem is compounded by the spread of HIV-AIDS.

Focusing on this goal, and as a StopTB partner, we introduce a proposal to fight HIV/Tb, based on the following three points:
- A new product
- A new therapeutic approach
- A scheme to allow its universal use, in particular by disadvantaged population.

The new product is the immunomodulator P-MAPA which has been under development for the last 17 years by Farmabrasilis. It has already passed preclinical and pilot clinical trials.
The new therapeutic approach is the reestablishment of immunocompetence of patients with infectious diseases, including those co-infected with HIV, by adjuvant immunotherapy with P-MAPA.
A key aspect of this proposal is the scheme for universal use. P-MAPA is an affordable immunomodulator, obtained by a classical fungal fermentation process.No high technology needs to be involved. Farmabrasilis has developed a large-scale, low-cost production technology of P-MAPA, and is in a position to transfer the know-how to its partners, even in countries with no tradition of pharmaceutical manufacture.Furthermore, our product licensing policy includes the possibility of royalty-exempt transference of technology in the case of neglected diseases and economically disadvantaged populations.
