“The approval and launch of Alvogen’s oseltamivir phosphate powder for oral suspension is great news for U.S. patients, who will have access to a more affordable alternative.  Alvogen is one of the fastest growing pharmaceutical companies in the U.S. market and this launch further demonstrates our ability to be first to market with new generic alternatives for U.S. patients.”

Alvogen currently has 75 products in development and pending FDA approval for the U.S. market. Annual brand sales for filed products and those under development have current brand sales exceeding $25 billion, according to IMS Health (2015).
