2014 - January - Research using Iron Sucrose AZAD
To answer the EMEA Reflection paper “non-clinical studies for generic nanoparticle medicinal product applications” AZAD commission in vitro and in vivo non-clinical studies to compare the biodistribution and cellular handling of iron sucrose Azad with the original product Venofer®, whereby their properties were found to be essentially similar. These studies have recently been published in peer-reviewed journals, see attachments.

2013 - October - AZAD successfully completes Phase III trial of generic Brinzolamide ophthalmic suspension

AZAD Pharma sponsored this phase III, multicentre, randomized, investigator-masked, cross-over, comparative efficacy study of its generic Brinzolamide 10mg/ml ophthalmic suspension and Brinzolamide 10mg/ml ophthalmic suspension (Azopt®, Alcon) in open-angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension patients.

The primary objective was to evaluate the efficacy of Brinzolamide 10 mg/ml ophthalmic suspension of Azad Pharma in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) when compared to Azopt®, Alcon. Secondary objectives were to compare the tolerance of the test (generic) and reference product, and to compare the levels of conjunctival hyperaemia and to evaluate general safety.

Outcome: the IOP reduction and the adverse event profile of the generic Brinzolamide
10 mg/ml ophthalmic suspension of Azad Pharma were shown to be non-inferior to Azopt® (Alcon). It can therefore be concluded that the products are equivalent.
Azad Pharma's Brinzolamide ophthalmic suspension Dossier is now available for out-licensing
