New Oral Contraceptive Pills to Attract More Customers

Lupin Ltd., a leading drug manufacturing company, in this financial year, has launched nine products in the United States and has received approvals for its 21 new products from the USFDA. Lupin Ltd. recently got USFDA approval for its new contraceptive pills in the U.S. Earlier this year, the company secured approvals from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to sell its generic version of oral contraceptive pills in the U.S. market.
