Bedrosian, president and chief executive officer of Lannett. “Over the past seven months we have received nine product approvals, which included one New Drug Application, one supplemental ANDA and seven ANDAs. We especially would like to thank our local FDA representatives, as well as the reviewers at the Office of Generic Drugs, who were helpful in getting these products approved.”
