MUMBAI and BALTIMORE, December 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Pharma Major Lupin Limited (Lupin) announced today that its US subsidiary Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc. has launched its Abacavir Sulfate, Lamivudine, and Zidovudine Tablets, 300 mg (base) / 150 mg / 300 mg in the US after the US District Court for the District of Delaware ruled that the Lupin's generic version of Trizivir® did not infringe on patents. Lupin had earlier received approval for the same.

Lupin's Abacavir Sulfate, Lamivudine Zidovudine 300mg (Base)/150mg/300mg Tablets are the AB-rated generic equivalent of ViiV Healthcare's (ViiV) Trizivir® Tablets, 300 mg (base) / 150 mg / 300mg and are indicated in combination with other antiretrovirals or alone for the treatment of HIV-1 infection.

Lupin is the first applicant to file an ANDA for Trizivir® Tablets and as such is entitled to 180 days of marketing exclusivity.

Trizivir® Tablets, 300 mg (base) / 150 mg / 300mg had annual U.S sales of approximately US$ 111.6 million (IMS MAT Sep, 2013).
