This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma (DSP)'s top product Amlodin (amlodipine, licensed from Pfizer) continues to be hit by generic competition, with sales of the calcium antagonist falling by 12% to ¥26.9 billion ($296 million) in the six months to September 30th. The product was opened up to its first generic entrants in Japan last year, and as one of the biggest-selling prescription drugs in the country has seen numerous alternative versions enter the market.
