Generic drug maker Mylan announced Tuesday the tentative approval of subsidiary Matrix Labs’ fixed-dose combination tablets containing 600 mg of efavirenz, 200 mg of emtricitabine and 300 mg of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate. The drug is a generic version of Gilead Sciences’ Atripla tablets, used to treat HIV infection in adults.
“This critical approval only further strengthens Mylan and Matrix’s efforts to expand access to life-saving affordable AIDS treatments for people living with HIV/AIDS in developing countries,” Mylan president Heather Bresch said in a statement. “Matrix’s generic fixed-dose combination will dramatically improve access to this more patient-friendly medication while reducing the cost of treatment.”
