Trafficking in children's height anxiety , Who is behind the scenes ?

stay NBS The new product looks slightly , Continue to hype and sell children's height anxiety , There are direct behind the scenes , And the indirect behind the scenes . 

First say , Directly behind the scenes : Private medical institutions .

Promoting growth hormone products can make huge profits , Some medical representatives use high kickbacks to lure pediatricians into prescribing indiscriminately . 

Recommend a variety of inhibitors or growth hormone products , It has directly brought considerable and sustainable income to these private medical institutions , Private medical institutions and industry practitioners have become the direct driving force behind the scenes for parents . 

Besides, , Indirect behind the scenes : Major pharmaceutical companies . 

At present, many well-known domestic pharmaceutical companies have already bet on the hormone drug market , Especially the growth hormone market .

Even some growth hormone companies invite doctors to participate in training , Ask the doctor to prescribe more growth hormone for the child , Proportional Commission . 

Children's height anxiety has become whose “ Money printing machine ”?

Major pharmaceutical companies have accelerated the market of hormonal drugs , These products bring them considerable income . 

Sexual inhibition needle , Even growth hormone products have become the focus of these pharmaceutical companies “ Money printing machine ”, Performance soared , Make a lot of money . 

Issued by Changchun hi tech, a listed company 2021 According to the annual financial report of , The company's operating income throughout the year 107.47 One hundred million yuan , Year-on-year growth 25.30%, Net profit growth 23.33%. among , The contribution of growth hormone products to performance is as high as 98%, Despite the failure of its vaccine business , But growth hormone products are growing at an alarming rate .

The rapid growth of Anson biological performance , It is also mainly driven by the core product growth hormone , Growth hormone is expected to maintain high growth , Guosheng securities in this year 4 month 28 On the day of, Anson biology was given a buy rating . 

The gross profit margin of growth hormone is as high as 90%, It's a door made of “ Children's height anxiety ” A profiteering business . 

This kind of products not only have large market demand and high profits , More importantly, there is no need to worry about sales , The market and customers are rushing to pay the bill , And let these pharmaceutical companies “ Win effortlessly ”. 

Here's the thing to watch , Changchun high tech and other pharmaceutical enterprises , Has set its sights on the adult growth hormone market . 


This time, “9 Year old girl received sexual inhibition needle for half a year 10 ten thousand ” The topic is hot , It also reflects that parents' anxiety about their children's height still exists .

This year, 1 month 19 Japan , Led by Guangdong Medical Insurance Bureau 11 Provincial alliance centralized purchase releases procurement documents , Bring recombinant human growth hormone into the scope of centralized drug procurement , This is the first time that growth hormone has been included in the collection of inter provincial alliance .

More importantly , Parents and children should treat height scientifically and objectively , There is no absolute standard for height , Excessive use of hormone products , In fact, it is not conducive to healthy growth .
