The company said Ryaltris has been conditionally accepted as the brand name for GSP 301 Nasal Spray by the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA).
"We have worked closely with the USFDA on the clinical development programme for Ryaltris, and look forward to providing robust data to support its potential approval," Glenmark Pharmaceuticals President and Chief Medical Officer Fred Grossman said.
