USP team calls on Kiran

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: A delegation of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) called on Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and requested him to inaugurate in September their facility at Genome Valley, on the outskirts of the city.

The USP, an official public standards-setting authority for all prescription, over-the-counter medicines and other healthcare products, is establishing here its largest facility outside United States with an investment of Rs. 68 crore ($15 million), according to K.V. Surendranath, vice-president of USP, India branch.

The new facility, coming up on a 4.5-acre site, will house analytical research and development, micro-biology, micro-analytical and organic synthetics chemistry labs, besides conducting training programmes.

The objective behind expanding its India operations was that India offered a lot of opportunities, according to a press release here on Wednesday.

Roughly 35 per cent of drugs imported into the US were from India. USP's main customers (users) for its reference standards and USP books were all in India, accounting for 10-12 per cent of the organisation's global customers, Dr. Surendranath said.
