Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, a research-led global integrated pharmaceutical company, gets marketing approval from Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), Australia for its product-Ryatris, which is a new fixed-dose combination nasal spray of an antihistamine and a steroid indicated for the treatment of symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis (AR) and rhino conjunctivitis in patients aged 12 and over. This paves the way for the launch of Ryaltris in Australia through Seqirus, which is a part of Australia-based specialty biotechnology company CSL Ltd.

Glenmark plans to commercialize Ryaltris in several key markets globally and will explore commercial partnerships for Ryaltris in markets where it doesn't have direct presence. The first market where Ryaltris will be launched is Australia, which has one of the world's highest rates of allergic rhinitis with nearly 20 percent of the country's population suffering annually from this disease. The allergic rhinitis can lead to a reduction in quality of life and functional impairment.
