Vifor Pharma is a leader in iron deficiency therapy, with a history dating back to 1872 when pharmacist Caspar Friedrich Hausmann opened a pharmacy in St. Gallen, Switzerland, and developed infusion preparations and pharmaceutical specialities.

Ferinject® (ferric carboxymaltose)
Ferinject® is a solution of ferric carboxymaltose used for intravenous treatment of iron deficiency when oral iron preparations are ineffective or cannot be used. The properties of the complex, in particular its stability, makes high dosing up to 1000 mg iron possible. These characteristics make Ferinject® the first non-dextran iron complex for high iv iron dosing.

Venofer® (iron sucrose)
Venofer® is the established brand of a solution of iron sucrose used for intravenous treatment of iron deficiency when oral iron preparations are ineffective or cannot be used.

Maltofer® (iron polymaltose)
Maltofer® is a further iron carbohydrate complex, i.e. iron polymaltose, available in solution or in tablet form used for oral treatment of iron deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia as well as prophylactic oral therapy of iron deficiency during pregnancy.
