Allergan opens Indian pharma R&D arm

US-headquartered Allergan has opened its first pharmaceutical R&D facility in India

According to local media reports, US-headquartered Allergan has opened its first pharmaceutical R&D facility in India.

The Allergan Pharmaceutical Development Centre India, which will make up part of Allergan's worldwide R&D operations, will focus on implementing global pharmaceutical R&D projects conducted in the region.

According to Scott M Whitcup, Allergan's worldwide executive vice-president of R&D, the centre would have 15 clinical research and data management personnel at the start of operations and could double within two years.

Whitcup said that Allergan's estimated investment for the new centre at USD 3m to USD 5m over the next few years. He added that R&D activities at the centre would initially focus on therapies in areas such as inflammatory and infective conditions of the eye, movement disorders and urological indications.

The centre is Allergan's third largest outside of the US. The company also has Allergan India, which manages the commercial side of Allergan's business there.
