Biocon and Abraxis announce approval of Abraxane in India

Abstract:
Biocon and Abraxis BioScience, an integrated global biopharmaceutical company, have announced the approval by the country's Drug Controller General to market Abraxane for injectable suspension (paclitaxel protein-bound particles) in India for the treatment of breast cancer. Commercial introduction of Abraxane in the Indian market is expected in 2008, following the completion of the appropriate importation certifications. "The approval of Abraxane in India is an important step in providing access to the NAB (nanoparticle albumin bound) technology globally," said Patrick Soon-Shiong, Managing Director, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Abraxis. "In partnership with Biocon, we are excited to offer physicians in India this important advance in the treatment of breast cancer."
