Alembic Pharmaceuticals has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) for its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for doxycycline hyclate delayed-release tablets USP, 75 mg, 100 mg, 150 mg, and 200 mg.
Alembic Pharma stated in a statement that the approved ANDA is therapeutically equivalent to the reference listed drug (RLD) product Doryx tablets, 75 mg, 100 mg, 150 mg, and 200 mg, by Mayne Pharma International, stated Alembic Pharma in a statement.
Doxycycline hyclate delayed-release tablets are indicated to reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of other antibacterial drugs.
These tablets should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria.
When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying anti-bacterial therapy.
In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy, the statement said.
Doxycycline hyclate delayed-release tablets USP, 75 mg, 100 mg, 150 mg, and 200 mg have an estimated market size of USD 10 million for the twelve months ending September 2021, as per IQVIA.
