New diabetes drug cuts cost by 80%

MUMBAI: Diabetics in the country have something to cheer about. A completely new drug in the 'gliptin' family has disrupted the anti-diabetes market by lowering the cost of therapy for patients by 80%. With the launch of the teneligliptin molecule, the popular gliptin category has witnessed a price erosion of over 80% in the last six months, bringing down the cost for a day's treatment from Rs 45 to an average daily price of Rs 9. What's more, over 15 companies are now offering it.

The cost of gliptin treatment amounted to Rs 16,200 per year (at Rs 1,350 per month). With the entry of the new molecule and subsequently aggressive pricing by domestic companies over the past six months, the cost of therapy has dropped to approximately Rs 3,285 a year (at Rs 270 a month), translating into national savings of roughly Rs 1,300 crore for patients. The new entrant teneligliptin is also the fastest selling in the Rs 1,430 crore gliptin family which occupies 20% of the total anti-diabetic market.

Teneligliptin, a third-generation new oral anti-diabetic drug manufactured by Mumbai-based Glenmark, received regulatory approval, and was priced aggressively at nearly Rs 20 for a day's therapy when it was first launched in June last year.

The launch of Zita Plus and Ziten (teneligliptin brands) by Glenmark paved the way for the entry of a host of players to launch the molecule in the oral diabetic market which is valued around Rs 6,000 crore, growing at a strong double-digit.

As per the AIOCD data (December 2015), there are 16 teneligliptin brands in the market, with total sales of Rs 36 crore. Diabetes is fast gaining the status of a potential epidemic in India with over 67 million individuals currently diagnosed with the disease (source: IDF 2014), while there is a huge undiagnosed diabetes population estimated around 35.4 million.

The economic burden of diabetes is high in India as most patients pay out-of-pocket, and due to lack of medical reimbursement.

4th Test: South Africa flattened after Rahane, Jadeja heroics

NEW DELHI: South Africa's troubles against spin continued with another abject batting performance, one that spanned 49.3 overs on the second day at the Feroz Shah Kotla, on a track that was nowhere near as spiteful as Nagpur or Mohali. This was just poor batting against accurate bowling, led by Ravindra Jadeja's 5/30.

Making South Africa's collapse to 121 all the more alarming was that it took place on the same track on which Ajinkya Rahane stroked his way to a silken 127 - the first century of the series and the longest a player has batted - while adding the highest partnership of the series (98) with R Ashwin, who scored 56.

Such a meek batting effort also pushed into the shade some excellent bowling from Kyle Abbott, whose figures of 24.5-7-40-5 gave the visitors something to take from an otherwise chastening 117.5 overs in the field. This South African team is spent, physically and mentally, of that there is no doubt. India, with a lead of 213, will look to bury them on day three.

The Kotla surface was not a rank turner as seen in Mohali and Nagpur, but still required plenty of application and skill, and it was fitting that Rahane was the man to reach a significant landmark for it was at this venue that he made a forgettable debut in 2013. With this excellent century, Rahane has also pushed his batting average in India from under eight to 24.85.

Rahane's fluidity harked back to his sublime Lord's century last summer, and for sheer value it will rank alongside that match-winning effort. He took 24 deliveries spanning nearly 45 minutes to move from 89 to 100, but once his first century in Indian was achieved with a push past the stumps for four off Morne Morkel, and then punctuated with a pump of the fists as he raised his bat, Rahane started purring.

He sashayed down to Dane Piedt and clubbed two sixes in an over, one wide of deep midwicket and the other over long-off, and followed up by hitting Dean Elgar's left-arm spin inside out over cover for four. In between these attractive hits were delicate dabs square on the offside and controlled bunts to leg. It was fluent batting, with a touch of panache.

Rahane's innings ended when he drove Imran Tahir in the air to cover, the leg spinner's first wicket in his tenth over. Moments before lunch, he dumped Tahir for six over long-on to get to his fifty, but did not last long after the interval as Abbott plucked out the last two wickets to become the first overseas fast bowler since Courtney Walsh in 1987 to claim a five-for at the Kotla.
