History behind the name MAX BioPharma

In 1963 MAX BioPharma was created as one of the first pharmaceutical companies in Iran by the late Dr. Benjamin Parhami, father of Dr. Farhad Parhami. The company quickly became one of the major producers of medicine in Iran that brought more than 40 formulations of a variety of medicines to the people of Iran while creating hundreds of jobs for those whose families it supported. Unfortunately, after the 1979 revolution in Iran, the political situation and the change in government leadership created a hostile environment for religious minorities whose assets were confiscated. Consequently, after experiencing grave injustices and hardships created by the authorities of the new regime that threatened his life, in 1982 at the age of 63 Benjamin Parhami fled from Iran by crossing the border into Pakistan, never to return to his homeland again. He came to the United States and lived in Los Angeles, California until January 28, 2007. MAX BioPharma is still in operation in Iran, under the changed name of Kharazmi Pharmaceutical Co. In 2010, Dr. Farhad Parhami along with his distinguished colleagues Drs. Michael Jung and William Matsui founded MAX BioPharma in the United States, aiming to utilize their collective expertise and their novel discoveries to create new strategies for intervention in some of the most debilitating and fatal human diseases such as cancer and osteoporosis.
