DERMATOLOGY UPDATE SPONSOR Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.
Sun Pharma Canada Inc. is focused on improving care by providing new innovative treatments in dermatologic diseases, specifically psoriasis and acne. Currently on the Canadian market, Sun Pharma launched PrILUMYA® (tildrakizumab injection), which is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy.
Two pipeline products for the treatment of acne have been submitted to Health Canada for review: clascoterone cream (topical) to treat acne vulgaris; and an isotretinoin capsule for the treatment of severe recalcitrant nodular acne.
Sun Pharma first entered the Canadian market in 2015 with the purchase of Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited, and launched as a new corporate entity in 2020, with an emphasis on dermatology.
