Lakeside de México


A house-hold name for antibiotics

Towards the end of 2009, Parazelsus acquired a controlling shareholding in Lakeside de México. S.A. de C.V. which was originally owned by a global pharmaceutical corporation. Lakeside is in the business of marketing and selling a portfolio of prescription pharmaceuticals. With a history of over 60 years, Lakeside’s Penprocilina(TM) is the household name and gold standard in antibiotic cure, first treatment of choice for upper respiratory infections and market leader in narrow spectrum penicillin segment in Mexico. Together with Terbac(TM), a leading product in the segment of Cephalosporins, Lakeside is well positioned to leverage its platform and expand revenue through focused medical detailing and pro-actively manage the life cycle of its product portfolio.

The Company including Penprocilina and Terbac was sold to Grupo Farmaceutico Somar SAPI de CV in 2012 while the remaining product portfolio was retained at holding company level.
