Generics – (API and Finished Products)

Lupin’s generic R&D pipeline is aimed at developing a comprehensive portfolio of high entry barrier products that address unmet patient needs. Our track record of successful ANDA filings and approvals has garnered us leadership in several chronic therapy areas such respiratory, diabetes and cardiovascular in India, and hypertension and calcium blockers in the US.

Formulations research is supported by the API process research group, which includes 150 scientists supported by an equal number of analytical chemists. The team specialises in the development of processes for the manufacturing of APIs, including intermediates (the key starting material), chemicals and biological (fermentation).
