Australia’s Mayne Pharma launches generic antibiotic in US Posted 13/04/2018

Australia-based Mayne Pharma announced on 15 March 2018 that it had launched a generic version of doxycycline monohydrate immediate release (IR) capsules (50, 75 and 100 mg) in the US.

Doxycycline IR capsules are a generic alternative to Aqua Pharmaceutical’s Monodox, which is a tetracycline-class antibacterial indicated for the treatment of a number of infections, including adjunctive therapy in severe acne.

Mayne Pharma makes both brand-name and generic drugs. ‘This launch will further broaden Mayne Pharma’s dermatology portfolio’, according to Mayne Pharma’s CEO Scott Richards.

The company markets more than 55 products and has a growing pipeline of around 30 drugs targeting the US market with sales of more than US$5 billion. According to IQVIA, doxycycline IR capsules had annual US sales of approximately US$30 million for the 12 month period ending 31 January 2018.
