Dr. Reddy's Laboratories (NYSE:RDY) and its subsidiary, Promius Pharma™, LLC today announced the filing of three 505(b)(2) New Drug Applications (NDAs) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (US FDA).
The three NDAs - DFD-01, DFD-09, and DFN-11, are in support of Dr. Reddy’s Proprietary Products group, focused on developing and commercializing therapies in dermatology and neurology.
DFD-01 and DFD-09 are the first dermatology applications submitted to the NDA that have been fully developed leveraging in-house capabilities.
