Strides Arcolab has received approval from the US health regulator to market its generic Imiquimod cream, used in treating skin diseases, in the American market.

The Bangalore-based company has received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) for Imiquimod cream, Strides Arcolab Ltd said in a statement.

“This is the first product approval from Beltapharm, the company’s USFDA approved semi-solids facility in Milan, Italy.

The product will be marketed directly by Strides in the US market,” it added.
