“Binotal is a proven product with a long history of efficacy and safety in improving the lives of people suffering from bacterial infections,” said Paladin interim chief executive Mark Beaudet.

“The product has strong brand recognition and strategically ties in with our desire to grow our business in Latin America.”

Bayer will provide some distribution support services for a temporary period, Paladin said.
