Mylan Inc. said on Thursday that it had introduced a generic incontinence drug to the U.S. market and was selected by the South African government as a supplier of antiretroviral drugs.
Cecil-based Mylan has started selling Tolterodine Tartrate tablets, the generic version of Detrol, made by Pfizer Inc. Tolterodine Tartrate had U.S. sales of $61.5 million for the 12 months ended Sept. 30.
The company said the South African National Department of Health selected Mylan's Indian subsidiary to supply it with 31 percent of the 30 million units of HIV/AIDS drugs it will buy in a two-year period ending Dec. 31, 2014.
Mylan's share of the contract is valued at about $127.5 million.
