With additional offices in Dublin and Pune, Key Pharmaceuticals has been involved in the development, manufacture and regulatory support of generic pharmaceuticals for 20 years. Key recently celebrated their 25th generic drug launch in the UK with Lamzarin (Gliclazide XR).

Their products are now being prescribed across the country and delivered to hospitals, clinics and pharmacies up and down the UK. Given their products are all manufactured to UK MHRA GMP standards, they have also been able to successfully outlicense and supply to markets across all 6 continents.

Key also offers project management of drug development through the whole product lifecycle to those who require it. This includes formulation, development, clinical, manufacturing scale up, registration and ongoing pharmacovigilance support.

Tushar Patel, Technical Director of Key Pharmaceuticals, had this to say: “I’m proud of what we have achieved so far over the course of 20 years. With additional support provided by the Lexon Group, I’m certain that the next 20 years will be even more exciting.”
