Near-term opportunity shrinks in USA; long-term prospects remain strong
Adverse outcome of patent litigation on Prevacid ODT shrinks short-termprospects in USA: Japan's Takeda Pharmaceutical (Takeda) won a patent
infringement suit against Zydus Pharmaceuticals (US subsidiary of Cadila
Healthcare) after proving to a New Jersey federal judge that Zydus
Pharmaceuticals’ (USA) proposed generic gastric relief product would unfairly
compete with Takeda's Prevacid SoluTab (Prevacid ODT) medication. Takeda
had sued Cadila Healthcare on filing for generic Prevacid ODT. Prevacid ODT isused to treat gastric ulcers and its market size is estimated to be $300 million.
It was expected to have three to four competitors after patent expiry/invalidity.
Zydus Cadila is one of the litigants who seek to get generic entry before the
patent expiry on May 17, 2017 (patent number 6328994). Prevacid ODT could
provide a low competition opportunity for Zydus Cadila. This potentially limitsthe short-term opportunity in the US market for Cadila Healthcare, which could
give nearly $80-100 million revenues under market exclusivity.
Long-term opportunity remains intact; complex generics to ensure better
market share: Cadila Healthcare has recorded a slower growth during the recent
quarters due to price erosion in plain generics and lack of new approvals. Though
we do not see a big trigger in the US market in near future, the long-term
prospects remain strong on account of complex generics and technology-intensive
products like transdermal products, vaccines, injectibles, nasal sprays andbiosimilars. However, a surge in the US business would be visible only in FY2015,when some key approvals are likely to come. We estimate the US revenues to
