HIKAL Ltd on Wednesday announced that it has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health & Human Services (USFDA) for its active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) manufacturing facility at Jigani, Bangalore.

"The USFDA approval, along with the recent acquisition of European pharma distribution company Marsing, will extensively help Hikal to implement its plans to export APIs to the US and other regulated markets,'' the company said in a news release quoting Mr Jai Hiremath, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Hikal Ltd.

"The USFDA approval along with TGA (Australia) and WHO (European) approvals already obtained, will open up a worldwide market for Hike's APIs in the US, Europe, Australia and Japan that are now opening up to generic drugs," the release said.
