Impax Laboratories, Inc. (IPXL), along with TOLMAR, Inc., announced Wednesday that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or FDA has granted final approval for the generic version of Solaraze Gel (diclofenac sodium-3%).

TOLMAR was the first company to file a substantially complete Abbreviated New Drug Application or ANDA for the generic version of Solaraze Gel containing a Paragraph IV certification.

Impax said its generics division, Global Pharmaceuticals, intends to commercialize this first-to-file product shortly. The last Orange Book listed patent expires August 11, 2015.
