"The ministry will invest U.S. $ 170 million in the construction of the first national factory of organic products made from plant cell technology unprecedented in the country, in Ceara." 

"The first technology platform for the production of biological medicines from plant cells, such as carrot and tobacco, involves partnerships between Fiocruz and the Israeli company Protalix, the American Fraunhofer USA Center for Molecular Biotechnology, and iBio Inc. This was also the first plant-based biotechnological which was registered in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Agency for Sanitary Surveillance (ANVISA), worldwide. Operations should start at full steam in 2016. The new Fiocruz center will be installed in the city of Eusebio near Fortaleza (Ceara) and construction starts from 2014. A factory will initially produce drugs for rare diseases as Taliglucerase Alfa Recombinant Human, for Gaucher disease, and the first vaccine in the world from a plant, against yellow fever."

"The production process from the extraction plant is a novelty in the country. The technology ensures higher security than the biological produced from viruses and bacteria. It produces fewer side effects and less resistance facing the human body which receives the treatment. Moreover, it requires less investment."

"Ceara is very happy to help correct regional inequalities. It is the country's time to celebrate because we see investing in Brazil and seeing possibilities," said state governor Cid Gomes.

"Organic products are more effective compared to traditional medicines from chemical synthesis, increasing the chances of successful treatment especially for chronic diseases. They are made from living material and manufactured from processes involving personalized medicine and molecular biology."

"Currently biological resources represent 43% of the medicines used by the Ministry of Health, or about U.S. $ 4 billion per year."
