Zydus Pharmaceuticals (USA) Inc., located in Pennington, New Jersey, has come a long way since its first commercial launch in August 2005. The company currently offers more than 450 SKUs to the US market and is ranked the fifth largest unbranded generic corporation in the US based on dispensed prescriptions (IQVIA, NPA Audit, MAT March 2021). Since Zydus first entered the US market, it has purchased two facilities in the US – Nesher Pharmaceuticals in St. Louis, Missouri and Hercon Pharmaceuticals in York, PA. In 2017, Zydus also acquired Sentynl Therapeutics Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company based in Solana Beach, CA. These acquisitions have helped Zydus to grow from a generic company focused on solid oral generics to a company that offers more complex dosage forms such as oral suspensions, modified release oral solids, transdermals, controlled substances, and injectables.
While Zydus has grown tremendously since it entered the US, the company is continuing to look for new ways to bring value to the US market. Zydus is aggressively pursuing franchises it does not exist in today to further its footprint in the lives of patients. The company has launched several products out of its oncology facility and plans on expanding its dermatology and injectable product lines.
With the strength and worldwide reputation of Zydus Cadila supporting the US division, Zydus is looking forward to continuing its growth in the US marketplace. As the company focuses its efforts on more challenging and rewarding opportunities, including several first-to-file and 505(b)(2) opportunities, it looks forward to great success in the coming years. To date, Zydus has filed over 120 drug master files (DMFs), received final USFDA approval on 281 Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs), received tentative USFDA approval on 24 ANDAs, and has 105 ANDAs pending approval with the USFDA. The company also has approximately 250 additional products in various stages of development.
