In 2010 Huaan became the largest shareholder of Wuhu Kangwei Biotechnology and developed a vaccine against Heliocobacter Pylori (HP), a bacterium that causes stomach ulcers and recently finished the development stage. The company obtained the drug manufacturing permit in May 2015 and this vaccine will be the first oral HP vaccine in the world.
