ANTI ALLERGY DRUG FROM RANBAXY

Ranbaxy gets USFDA approval for anti-allergic drug

BY OUR PHARMA CORRESPONDENT


May 20, 2007: Indiaís top drug maker Ranbaxy Laboratoriesís US subsidiary is likely to receive approval for the generic version of the commonly used drug to treat allergic rhinitis.

Ranbaxy said in a press statement that the federal drug regulator United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has given conditional okay for manufacturing and marketing Fexofenadine Hydrochloride tablets.

Fexofenadine Hydrochloride is used for relieving symptoms of seasonal rhinitis like sneezing, rhinorrhea, itchy nose, throat, palate and eyes.

Total annual market sales for Fexofenadine Hydrochloride Tablets were pegged at 931 million dollars and the nod will further expand the company's product portfolio of generic alternatives, Ranbaxy said.

"This product represents a future opportunity for Ranbaxy and will be launched following final approval from the FDA," RPI Vice President (Sales and Marketing) Jim Meehan said in a communique to the BSE.

The approval will allow Florida-based RPI, engaged in selling and distribution of generic as well as branded prescription products in US, to make and market the tablets in three dosages, 30 mg, 60 mg, and 180 mg.
