OTC-Only PEG Market Nears After Court Passes On Stopping Rx ANDA Withdrawals

Executive Summary

US circuit court rejects petitions from Breckenridge Pharmaceutical, Lannett Co., Nexgen Pharma and Paddock Labs to order FDA to conduct a hearing on their requests to sustain approvals for Rx PEG 3350 generics.
