Zydus’ commitment to healthcare innovations

Since its inception, Zydus has been committed to finding novel ways to assist people with unmet healthcare needs. Many of the discoveries made by the group are first-in-India or first-in-the-world.

Zydus was the first Indian pharmaceutical company to bring a new chemical identity (NCE), ‘Lipaglyn,’ from the lab to the market to treat Diabetic Dyslipidemia.

Bilypsa is also the world’s first drug to be approved for Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH).

Malaria has been a scourge, and the world has been fighting this tropical disease that kills millions of people each year. Zydus is working with MMV to develop ZY19489, a potential single-dose, fast-acting malaria treatment.

Aside from that, ZYIL1, the company’s novel oral small molecule, is a potential NLRP3 inhibitor.

Apart from NCEs, Zydus has a strong pipeline of biologics and vaccines. ZyCoV-D, the world’s first Plasmid DNA Vaccine for human use, is also a result of Zydus’ innovation.

Twinrab is a novel biological entity that is the first of its kind for rabies post-exposure prophylaxis.
