Zydus Cadila has received the final approval from the USFDA to market Teriflunomide Tablets (US RLD- AUBAGIO), 7 mg and 14 mg. It will be manufactured at the group’s formulations manufacturing facility at SEZ, Ahmedabad.

Teriflunomide is used to treat relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). It is not a cure for MS but is thought to work by decreasing certain immune system cells (lymphocytes) which can attack the nerves in brain and spinal cord. This helps decrease the number of flare-ups (relapses) and may help slow down physical problems caused by MS.
