Engelhard Arzneimittel is one of the few pharmaceutical companies to focus on researching and developing gentle yet effective medicines for all ages, especially infants, children and young people. This leads to development of medicines that has the perfect balance between effectiveness and tolerability – with patient health being the main priority at all times.

The cough drops quickly become the company’s highest-selling product. This lays the foundation for ongoing research to further develop and establish the Prospan® product line.

Years of research and commitment lead to the launch of Prospan® Cough Syrup – a new milestone. This syrup combines the effective active ingredient α-hederin, and being free of alcohol and sugar, the requirements of a children’s medication.

Engelhard Arzneimittel hit another milestone by being the pioneer in conducting research into the medicinal properties of Prospan®, which ultimately lead to unlocking the mechanism of action of α-hederin, a record in rational phytotherapy.
