Drug firm shows 'strong progress'

A Scottish pharmaceutical firm has seen its revenue rise 42% in the first 10 months of this year compared with the same period in 2008.

Galashiels-based ProStrakan also saw its monthly sales exceed £7m for the first time in October.

Chief Executive Wilson Totten said he was encouraged that growth was being seen in a "broad number of areas".

He said the company had achieved "strong progress" in 2009 which he hoped would continue next year.
