Sandoz  has launched metronidazole 1% topical gel, the first generic version of METROGEL® 1%.
Metronidazole 1% topical gel is indicated for the topical treatment of inflammatory lesions of rosacea. According to IMS Health, US sales for branded metronidazole 1% topical gel were USD 110 million for the 12 months ending in April 2013. Galderma is the innovator for Metronidazole.With Sandoz being the only player on the market, we expect it to garner about 40 percent market share a ta price discount of 40 percent in 2013.
