It costs at least twice the presently available products.For that reason, I do not think it will take off in India.It is approved in EU,Japan etc and launched in India in Jan 14.

But how come it is being prescribed when it isn't approved by FDA? It isn;t approved in entire EU IIRC

There are a few drugs in the indian market ,which are not approved by fad but approved by drug controller General ,India. Why wanting to be first approved by fad ?

Ok. Since you did not answer my query earlier, don't expect me to answer your query. It's a give-and-take and you just can't be asking all the time. If it's a diatribe, I will ignore it completely.
