New Delhi, Delhi, India:  Terumo India, the Indian arm of Terumo Corporation (TSE: 4543), a global leader in medical technology, today announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Argon Medical, the market leader in specialty medical products, including guide wires, IVC filters and retrievals, bone and soft tissue biopsy needles and other products in India.

Making the announcement, Shishir Agarwal, MD of Terumo India, said, "Bridging the industry gap in providing patient focused solutions for healthcare providers is a priority for Terumo. We are delighted to introduce Argon products in India, which represent the gold standard for Biopsy Devices and complements our portfolio of Vascular Solutions, Access and Core Products.”

Cancer is one of the most prevalent chronic diseases in India today. With over 1.4 M cancer patients being diagnosed annually, the need for biopsies has multiplied significantly. Other diseases such as Chronic Kidney Disease, have over 16% prevalence within the Indian population. There is a significant unmet need to provide the latest technologies and tools for procedures such as Biopsies, AV Access and Deep Vein Thrombosis treatments. Argon’s portfolio comprising Biopsy, Thrombectomy and IVC Filters and Retrieval kits is expected to help bridge this gap for the Indian market.
