Xechem and its subsidiaries have the required background, capabilities, and resources to isolate and produce valuable Natural Products from a variety of medicinal plants, marine sources, and fermentation process . Plants and Herbs have long been recognized and used for their therapeutic benefit. Proprietary Drugs: Our expertise in drug development started with our first project: the successful launch of vancomycin in a remarkably short time - within 3 and 1/2 years, from culture in the test tube through final active drug substance to the finished dosage form marketed with FDA approval. This occurred when Xechem was affiliated with the LyphoMed Pharmaceutical Company. An emphasis is now on our PAXETOL™ brand of paclitaxel for treating refractory ovarian and breast cancer. Generic Drugs: The generic drugs produced include: Vancomycin, Paclitaxel (PAXETOL™), Bleomycin
