Latest From Zydus Cadila
Gilead outlines efforts to expand availability of remdesivir in India while offers for supplies from Russia, Uzbekistan are also on the table. Zydus Cadila has received accelerated approval in India for pegylated interferon alpha-2b in moderate COVID-19 infection in adults.
As India sees a consistent rise in daily cases and deaths due to COVID-19, the off-patent industry is stepping up to make drugs affordable and available. Zydus Cadila is seeking approval for virafin, while Natco has applied for molnupiravir approval. Vaccine production and availability has also come under focus.
Hatch-Waxman cases filed by Pfizer against Micro Labs and Zydus Cadila over generic versions of Pfizer’s Xeljanz/Xeljanz XR will not move to trial, following settlement agreements covering two patents expiring in March 2023 and December 2025.
Gilead is closely evaluating the situation for remdesivir in India as the country tackles shortages of the drug, which has several local licensees, with instances of black marketing adding to the local woes. The US firm clearly will not want any momentum towards possible compulsory licensing as initiated by Hungary and Russia, even as Indian firms have cut prices of the antiviral.
