SCHAUMBURG, Ill., March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Sagent Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a privately-held specialty pharmaceutical company today announced that it has launched ciprofloxacin injection, USP, 5% dextrose premix bag, a synthetic broad spectrum antimicrobial agent for intravenous (I.V.) administration used to treat bacterial infections.

According to IMS data, sales of injectable ciprofloxacin in the United States in 2006 were approximately $60 million.

Earlier this month, the company launched another antibiotic, cefazolin for injection, USP, which is available in 1g single dose vials and 10g pharmacy bulk package vials.
