It will be manufacturing Favipiravir for drug maker Cipla’s Ciplenza launch.
AV Rama Rao, Chairman, Avra Laboratories, said, “I am very pleased to be working with Cipla and Dr Yusuf Hamied again with whom I share a five-decade long association and friendship, during which time we collaborated on several projects to produce lifesaving drugs including anti-cancer, anti-HIV/AIDS and several other generic products. The current pandemic has brought us together to work tirelessly for the speedy launch of Favipiravir.”
