Perrigo announced it has received final approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Fluocinolone Acetonide Oil 0.01%, the generic version of Hill Dermaceuticals‘ DermOtic Oil Ear Drops.

DermOtic Oil is indicated to treat chronic eczematous external otitis in adults and children aged ≥2 years. Fluocinolone Acetonide is a topical corticosteroid that exerts anti-inflammatory, antipruritic, and vasoconstrictive properties. It is thought to act by induction of phospholipase A2 inhibitory proteins, called lipocortins. These proteins control the biosynthesis of potent mediators of inflammation such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes by inhibiting the release of their common precursor arachidonic acid.
