Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd.

USFDA approval is an outcome of extensive collaboration with the company’s partner, Natco Pharma Ltd. (NSE: NATCOPHARM; BSE: 524816), on R&D and manufacturing capabilities.

“This approval represents the first of its kind for Dr. Reddy’s in the complex depot injectables arena,” explains Alok Sonig, Executive Vice President and Head of the North America Generics business at Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories. “It is a testament to our commitment to bring affordable generic medicines to market for patients. The approval further validates our capabilities to successfully develop and manufacture complex liposomal formulations. We are preparing for a commercial launch soon.”

“We are pleased with our partnership with Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories. This approval would not have been possible without their guidance and support,” says Rajeev Nannapaneni, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Natco Pharma.
