Upsher-Smith adds 2 near-term generics

A strategic partnership with CorePharma expands Upsher-Smith’s portfolio.

Upsher-Smith has added two near-term generic products to its portfolio in an exclusive agreement with CorePharma.

CorePharma will secure FDA approval and manufacture both products at its New Jersey manufacturing facility. Upon FDA approval, Upsher-Smith will market and distribute the products under its own label in the United States.

This collaboration supports Upsher-Smith’s company-wide effort to grow the company’s portfolio of products through strategic partnerships and product acquisitions, Upsher-Smith said.
