Alembic Pharmaceuticals gained 1.1% to Rs 983.95 after the drug maker announced that its joint venture has received US drug regulator's tentative approval for efinaconazole topical solution.

Alembic Pharma on Thursday announced that its joint venture Aleor Dermaceuticals (Aleor) has received tentative approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) for its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for efinaconazole topical solution.

Efinaconazole topical solution is in a class of medications called antifungals. The product has an estimated market size of $233 million for twelve months ending December 2020 according to IQVIA.

The approved ANDA is therapeutically equivalent to the reference listed drug product (RLD), Jublia Topical Solution of Bausch Health Americas, Inc. Aleor has settled the case with Bausch Health and will launch its generic as per the terms of settlement.
