Dabur Pharma's Nanoxel receives DCGI approval

Abstract:
Dabur Pharma announced that the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) has approved its proprietary nanoparticle Paclitaxel formulation ‘Nanoxel' for additional indications of ovarian cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and AIDS related Kaposis's sarcoma. Speaking on the occasion Ajay Kumar Vij, CEO, Dabur Pharma said, "We are very pleased by DCGI's decision. Consistent with our mission of making cancer therapy available to more people, this approval will help a much larger patient population have access to a significantly safer and more convenient therapeutic alternative to conventional Paclitaxel." Nanoxel is a cremophor free polymeric nanoparticle formulation of Paclitaxel with no hypersensitivity reactions, which allows administration to patients without cumbersome pre-medication as is required with cremophor Paclitaxel.
