ANI Pharmaceuticals announced that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for Vancomycin Hydrochloride for Oral Solution in 250mg/5mL, a generic version of Vancocin.

Vancomycin is indicated to treat enterocolitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus (including methicillin-resistant strains) and antibiotic-associated pseudomembranous colitis caused by C. difficile.

“We are excited to re-launch this FDA approved product into a marketplace that is currently dominated by compounded vancomycin oral solutions,” said Arthur S. Przybl, ANI’s CEO. “We intend to pursue the removal of these unapproved compounded products from commercial distribution”
