HARBIN, China, Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Weikang Bio-Technology Group Co., Inc.

Patients covered under the national healthcare system are reimbursed for 70% to 90% of the cost of medications included on the NDRL.

Ranitidine Hydrochloride Capsule, a prescription-strength generic formulation of Zantac, is formulated to treat duodenal ulcers, gastric ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease and other gastric conditions. The product accounted for approximately 2.6% of Weikang's annual sales in 2010.Mr. Yin Wang, Chairman and CEO of Weikang, stated, "We expect the inclusion of our ranitidine hydrochloride capsule on the NDRL to broaden our potential customer base and help drive product sales. Under China's national healthcare reform plan, millions of patients will be able to afford and access high-quality medications, creating a huge addressable market for our products. We will continue to expand our distribution network and develop our product pipeline to capitalize upon national healthcare reform initiatives."
