Pharmaceutical companies rely on USFDA ratings and approvals to market their products and enhance their revenue. Lupin’s second manufacturing facility at Pithampur was inspected by the USFDA between the 21st and 29th of March 2023. The unit is engaged in the production of ophthalmic dosages and oral solids.
After inspection, USFDA categorised the facility as Voluntary Action Indication (VIA) which, in simple terms, is favourable for Lupin. After the report was issued, the company’s Managing Director, Mr Nilesh Gupta stated that the report was a major milestone for the company which is building back its market reputation in compliance and quality. Post the report, the MD said that the company is expecting to get more approvals and product launches from the approved facility, especially in the category of ophthalmology.
Previous to the manufacturing unit’s approval, Lupin had also received another tentative approval for Dolutegravir tablets for oral suspension. The drug is a generic equivalent of Tivicay PD Tablets for oral suspension sold currently by ViiV Healthcare. Lupin can market the drug after USFDA approval and it would be manufactured in the company’s Nagpur unit.
