Cipla to Launch Generic of Gilead Pharma's Hepatitis C Drug Sovald
Feb 13 15
Cipla has started work on launching generic versions of Gilead pharma's Hepatitis C drug Sovald. Hepcvir is the brand name under which Cipla will be selling the drug in India. The price is yet to be decided. Cipla is one of the several Indian companies which have signed a voluntary licence agreement with Gilead to sell generic versions in the Indian market. The decision comes even as Gilead is yet to receive a patent for the drug in India. It is also locked in dispute with the patent office over protection for an ancillary molecule. Sovaldi (chemical name Sofosbuvir) is considered to be one of the most effective drugs for treating Hep C. The drug created a huge controversy when Gilead announced that it will be pricing the drug at $84,000 in the United States. However, in India and other developing countries, the drug is priced at $900 for 12 weeks treatment.
