Lilly continues to supply both Capastat and Seromycin at discounted prices to WHO Green Light Committee-approved MDR-TB DOTS-Plus programs around the world.
In December 2003, Purdue University broke ground for its new manufacturing facility, the Allen Chao Center for Industrial Pharmacy, which will produce Seromycin.
The agreement states that the Chao Center will gain exclusive rights to manufacture, distribute and sell the multidrug-resistant tuberculosis drug Seromycin
Lilly granted to Dura an exclusive license to market Seromycin and Capastat Sulfate, in the $40 million tuberculosis segment of the U.
Seromycin is indicated in the treatment of active pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis.
Lilly gave its patent for Seromycin
, an antibiotic that cures multiple drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), to the center, which will be the sole manufacturer for the United States.
Two Lilly antibiotics, Capastat and Seromycin
, are used to fight the super bugs, and the company is making them available to the WHO at discounted prices.
