Calcium Gluconate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Calcium gluconate is a mineral supplement in medication. It is used by injection to treat problems like low blood calcium, high blood potassium, and magnesium toxicity. Calcium gluconate came into medical use around the 1920s. According to the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, it is the single most effective and safest medicines required in a health system. Calcium gluconate is also available as a generic medication. The wholesale cost in developing this chemical compound around the world is about USD 0.21–1.34 per one-gram.
Calcium gluconate is known as the calcium salt of gluconic acid. It is known as an oxidation product of glucose. It holds about 9.3% calcium, which is about one-third of the calcium in the strength of calcium chloride USP. Calcium gluconate has also been incorporated to lessen capillary permeability in some specific medical conditions like that of allergic conditions, nonthrombocytopenic purpura, and exudative dermatoses like dermatitis herpetiformis. In hyperkalemia, this drug or chemical compound may aid in antagonising the cardiac toxicity, given the patient is not receiving digitalis therapy.
