Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Aug 31 (UNI) Pharmaceutical and biotechnology major Wockhardt has received approval from the United States Food&Drug Administration (US FDA) for marketing Cefotaxime sodium (1 gm) injection in the US market. Cefotaxime Sodium is the generic version of Sanofi Aventis' Claforan antibiotic injection used in treating a wide variety of infections.

''This is our second approval for sterile cephalosporins, and our sixth approval in the last eight months,'' said Wockhardt Chairman Habil Khorakiwala. ''The rapid build-up of portfolio is helping us make our presence felt in the US, world's largest pharmaceutical market.'' Wockhardt's US subsidiary, Wockhardt USA Inc., will launch this cephalosporin antibiotic in the US market within the next few weeks, a company release said.

Cefotaxime sodium is manufactured at the US FDA certified sterile cephalosporin API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) facility at Ankleshwar and the injection is manufactured at the sterile formulation plant at Waluj. The processes for both API and the injection were developed in-house, the release added.
