PRINCETON, N.J., Dec. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SunGen Pharma, a privately held specialty pharmaceutical company which develops, contract manufactures, and sells pharmaceutical finished products, today announced it has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a generic version of Deltasone®, an immediate-release Prednisone product with various strengths 10 mg, 20 mg, and 50 mg tablets. Prednisone is used to treat conditions such as arthritis, blood disorders, breathing problems, severe allergies, skin diseases, cancer, eye problems, and immune system disorders. Prednisone belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. Prednisone Tablets had total U.S. sales of $121 million for the twelve months ending September 30, 2018 according to IQVIA. 

“This approval represents the first of many products being developed or co-developed by our company and with our partners around the world,” said Dr. Isaac Liu, Co-Founder and Co-CEO of the company.  “This is the first product approval for SunGen in 2018 and we have eight ANDAs still pending with the FDA.”

SunGen Pharma started its oral and topical research and development center in January 2016.
