Earlier this year, Ranbaxy had launched Osonide (Ciclesonide) Inhaler, a novel once-a-day product for asthma patients.

In May Ranbaxy entered into an in-licensing agreement for the Indian market with the Netherlands-based pharma company, Eurodrug Laboratories, for the asthma product Doxophylline - a novel Xanthine bronchodilator, sold under the brand name 'Synasma'.
