Biocon launches Tacrolimus capsules in US

New Delhi (NVI): Indian biopharmaceutical company Biocon today said that it has launched Tacrolimus capsules in the US market, an immunosuppressant used in the treatment of organ transplant patients, which reduces the body’s ability to reject a transplanted organ.

In a statement, the company said that Tacrolimus capsules have been particularly effective in treating patients of renal transplant for more than two decades.

The launch of Tacrolimus capsules, following an approval from the US FDA in November 2020, underscores Biocon’s relentless pursuit of its mission to make affordable healthcare accessible, the company said in a statement.

“The launch of Tacrolimus capsules in the US is another milestone for Biocon that reflects our commitment to continually evaluate and expand our portfolio of complex products to serve patients,” said Siddharth Mittal, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Biocon Ltd.
