ALLEGAN, Mich., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Perrigo Company (Nasdaq: PRGO; TASE) announced today that it had filed an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) for Guaifenesin Extended-Release Tablets, 600 mg, a generic version of Mucinex(R).

Mucinex (guaifenesin extended-release tablets, 600 mg), an expectorant indicated to relieve chest congestion and make coughs more productive, had sales of approximately $120 million through food, drug and mass merchandisers for the 12 months ended August 2007, as measured by Information Resources, Inc. and ACNielsen.

Perrigo filed its ANDA for Guaifenesin Extended-Release Tablets, 600 mg containing a Paragraph IV Certification with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Subsequently, Perrigo notified Adams Respiratory Therapeutics, Inc., the New Drug Application holder and patent owner for Mucinex of its filing.
