ARCOPHARMA is a Swiss company founded in 1980. The Company's background however, dates back to 1954, when ARCOPHARMA's predecessor ARCO S.A., a reputable manufacturer of generic drugs, was founded in Lugano. In its early days, ARCOPHARMA created a scientific advisory board to guide the implementation of innovative research projects. Thereafter, the Company became increasingly involved in the research of natural substances which could help trigger the human body's own defense mechanism.
The coming decade marking the advent of the 21st century brings new challenges to ARCOPHARMA. Our research activities will continue to combine space age technology with the ancient tradition of natural medicine, in order to provide people with pure biological remedies, without the harmful side effects of synthetic drugs.
