PITTSBURGH, May 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc.

The company was the first to have filed a substantially complete ANDA containing a Paragraph IV certification to the FDA for Clopidogrel Tablets, 300 mg, and was awarded 180 days of marketing exclusivity for this strength. This product is the generic version of Sanofi-Aventis' Plavix® and is indicated for acute coronary syndrome and for patients with a recent history of myocardial infarction, stroke or established peripheral arterial disease.[1]

Mylan Pharmaceuticals will provide customers with the 75 mg strength of this product in bottle form, and Mylan Institutional, which serves the institutional pharmaceutical market, will supply the 300 mg strength exclusively in unit dose packs of 30.

[1] Clopidogrel has been shown to be less effective in people who are known as "CYP2C19 poor metabolizers."  A blood test is used to determine if a person is a poor metabolizer. Clopidogrel is not indicated in those who are allergic to it or have active bleeding. Clopidogrel can increase the risk of bleeding and should be discontinued five days before surgery. Premature discontinuations can increase the risk for cardiovascular events and in patients who have had a recent transient ischemic attack or stroke. The combination of clopidogrel and aspirin can increase major bleeding. Fatal thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura has also been reported.
