The Office of Generic Drugs, U.S. Food and Drug Administration, has determined the Ranbaxy formulations to be bioequivalent and have the same therapeutic effect as that of the reference listed drug Ceftin(R) by GlaxoSmithKline.

"Ranbaxy is pleased to receive this approval for Cefuroxime Axetil Suspension that now allows us to offer both dosage forms for a product that is highly prescribed. We will offer Cefuroxime Axetil Suspension as a pleasant tasting liquid intended primarily for children that will ease in the acceptance and administration of this anti-infective. This product will further expand our product portfolio of affordable generic alternatives and will be launched immediately to all classes of trade," said Jim Meehan, Vice President of Sales and Distribution for RPI.
