  • Mylan to launch generic EpiPen at half the price of original

    Mylan NV said it would launch the first generic version of its allergy auto-injector EpiPen for $300 (229 pounds), half the price of the branded product, the drugmaker's second step in less than a week to counter the backlash over the product's steep price. The company reduced the out-of-pocket costs of EpiPen for some patients on Thursday, but kept the list price at about $600, a move that U.S. lawmakers and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said was not enough. Mylan said on Monday it expected to launch the generic product "in several weeks", an unusual move considering the branded bestseller is still patent protected and major rival treatments have failed to get regulatory clearances.
