Montreal, Quebec, Canada — (ACCESSWIRE) — Sunshine Biopharma Inc. (OTC PINK: “SBFM”), a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of oncology and antiviral drugs, today announced that it has ordered a new batch of Adva-27a from its manufacturer in China. The material will be delivered to the laboratories of Sunshine Biopharma’s drug development partner in Montreal (Canada).
