It was in 1927 when Merck launched the first vitamin preparation in the market under the name of Vigantol(R). And then in 1934, Cebion, the first vitamin C preparation was also marketed by Merck. These breakthrough products made Merck a pioneer in the vitamin manufacturing.
In 1962, Neurobion, vitamin B1 B6 and B12 combination was first registered in Europe. At the end of the 50’s, scientists aimed to combine cyanocobalamin (B12) with B1 and B6, two other neurotropic agents. Merck’s state-of-the-art analytical methods help in developing a stable formulation which ultimately resulted in the introduction of Neurobion for injection and for oral use.
