Sanofi applies for OTC version of Allegra in Japan

The PAFSC committee will review SAN application for Allegra OTC switch on June 7th.  Although SAN has no OTC presence in Japan, but this looks like a  strategic initiative and we might see SAN taking a leap in the OTC business in Japan, if they get an approval. Will SAN go for an OTC business acquisition in Japan?

An OTC version of Allegra is already being marketed in US, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.
