Daewoong got marketing approval for Alvis D, its double-strength Alvis, from the Ministry of Food and Drug Saftey on December 1.

Alvis D contains ranitidine 168mg, bismuth 200mg and sucralfate 600mg.

Daewoong developed Alvis D to defend its market share from generic versions of Alvis. It also rolled out its authorized generic drug of Alvis, which racked up 10 billion won last year.

Currently only Pharvis and Hanall got marketing approval for their generic version of Alvis, but more than ten pharmaceutical companies are ready to jump into the market through contracts.

Ahngook is also working on its double-strength generic version of Alvis. Industry experts said the market competition will get fiercer among Alvis, authorized generic versions, and high-dose Alvis.
