Ophthalmics & Otics
With the successful 2011 integration of Falcon Pharmaceuticals, Ltd., an affiliate of Alcon Laboratories Inc., Sandoz became the leading manufacturer and marketer of generic ophthalmic (eye) and otic (ear) products in the US and worldwide. This business created another pillar for Sandoz’s long-term differentiated products growth strategy, building on existing global leadership positions in biosimilars, generic injectables, and generic anti-infectives, as well as a powerful generic respiratory pipeline. (As of July 2012, Sandoz is also the US and global leader in generic dermatology, following its acquisition of Fougera Pharmaceuticals).
Ophthalmics is a very specialized market segment involving sterile production methods that require dedicated production lines and a high level of technical expertise to ensure quality and consistency. Through its partnership with Alcon, Sandoz is able to deliver a wide range of ophthalmic dosage forms including solution, suspension, emulsion and ointment preparations, some of which are highly advanced. These factors separate Sandoz from the competition.
Sandoz combines its own decades-long generics expertise and global presence with more than 60 years of experience and technical know-how inherited from Alcon to offer a comprehensive, high-quality portfolio of 35 ophthalmic and otic product families that are designed to treat a variety of ocular and otic diseases. By further growing our portfolio and strengthening our offerings, Sandoz will ensure that patients worldwide have greater access to a comprehensive range of these quality medicines at affordable prices.
