Cadila Healthcare has received the first approval globally, in India, for a NASH therapy, after the national regulator cleared its candidate saroglitazar. The company also expects to begin Phase III trials in the US in the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
Codagenix, a company backed by Novartis, Merck and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has tied up with India’s Serum Institute to develop a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, joining a heated race against the dreaded COVID-19 outbreak.
Cadila is exploring orphan indications for saroglitazar magnesium, in addition to the approaching Phase III NASH clinical trials for its lead NCE. Meanwhile, it counts on new product launches and biosimilars to take its FY21 growth story ahead.
