Dr Reddy's Laboratories Tuesday said it has launched Omeprazole delayed-release tablets, used to treat frequent heartburn, in the US market.

Milan Kalawadia, Dr Reddy's Laboratories and Head, US OTC and Speciality Rx businesses said, this launch illustrates the company's continued commitment to the OTC business as well as the depth and breadth of its OTC portfolio.
