Lilly/Lupin Indian diabetes partnership

Eli Lilly & Company has entered into a deal with India-based pharmaceutical firm Lupin to market Lilly's Huminsulin range of products for people with diabetes in India and Nepal

Eli Lilly & Company has entered into a deal with India-based pharmaceutical firm Lupin to market Lilly's Huminsulin range of products for people with diabetes in India and Nepal.

Lilly said the deal would double the current customer base for the products, with around 45,000 doctors to be targeted by Lupin. Financial details were not disclosed.

There are currently around 51 million people with diabetes in India, making the country an increasing priority for pharmaceutical companies whose portfolio includes diabetes products. It is estimated there will be 85 million living with the condition in India by 2030.

Eberhard Ludewigs, vice-president, Emerging Markets, Lilly, said: "As our highest priority, diabetes is a clear 'must win' for Lilly emerging markets. This partnership will allow us to change our game in India. We will have a stronger footprint with many more sales representatives promoting our diabetes brands, and this will become a foundation to expand our diabetes business not only for current products, but also for our future pipeline.”

Previous diabetes-related partnerships in India include Sun Pharma and MSD (known as Merck in the US and Canada). In April the companies agreed to co-market MSD's diabetes drugs, sitagliptin and sitagliptin plus metformin in the India.
