The drug is a high potency topical steroid approved for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in patients 18 years of age or older
Dr Reddy’s Laboratories (DRL), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Promius Pharma, announced its fifth consecutive, first-cycle NDA approval for the Proprietary Products Group, a substantial milestone within the pharmaceutical industry.
Impoyz (clobetasol propionate) Cream, 0.025 per cent is a high potency topical steroid approved for the treatment of moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in patients 18 years of age or older. The most common side effect of IMPOYZ Cream includes discoloration of the treated site. Psoriasis is a serious medical condition affecting approximately 7.5 million people in the US. Impoyz, formerly referred to as DFD-06, had been recently licensed to Encore Dermatology Inc. for the commercialisation of the product in the US.
This approval is another example of the deep and broad capabilities within the Proprietary Products business unit at DRL. The organisation has achieved several milestones within drug, device, and formulation research and development for novel therapies.
“The fifth consecutive first cycle NDA approval represents DRL long-term commitment to building an organisation that delivers innovative medical solutions,” said Anil Namboodiripad, Senior VP, Proprietary Products and President, Promius Pharma. “We are looking forward to working with our partner, Encore Dermatology, to bring this novel treatment to providers and their patients.”
“Encore is excited about adding another great product to our portfolio and looking forward to the opportunity to commercialise a new product for the treatment of mild to moderate psoriasis as well as broadening our portfolio outside of atopic dermatitis and acne,” said Robert Moccia, CEO, Encore Dermatology.
