42. Submit the dossier for DTG 10mg scored dispersible tablet in Q1 2020.

Action 42

October 2020

Macleods is one of the Generic partners developing DTG 10 mg DT under the collaborative development program with Unitaid / ViiV / CHAI. Macleods has filed the products with FDA and WHO – and have added an additional manufacturing site to the filing to have flexibility in supply. This potentially impacts the approval by 3 months and shifts the PDUFA date to March 16, 2021.

While there is a small potential delay, however  this addition tremendously augments supply capacity in order to fulfil the anticipated demand.
