"The approval of our Meloxicam ANDA further reinforces Lupin's ability on submitting high quality dossiers and gaining approval in time. Our thorough execution has enabled us to launch the product immediately," Lupin Managing Director Kamal K Sharma said.

Meloxicam is a generic equivalent of Boehringer Ingelheim's non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Mobic. Its sales in the US were approximately 1.1 billion dollars for the 12-month period ended December 2005 according to IMS Health, it added.

This is the company's 14th ANDA approval from US FDA, it said.
