Torrent Pharma Teams Up with Takeda to Launch New GERD Treatment in India

Torrent Pharma announced a partnership with Takeda Pharma to sell Vonoprazan, a treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), in India. Torrent will market the drug under the name Kabvie.

A 2019 study showed that GERD affects about 8.2% of Indians, with urban areas seeing rates as high as 11.1%. The Indian market for GERD treatments is worth Rs 8,064 crore and has been growing at 8% annually.


Currently, GERD is mainly treated with proton pump inhibitors like pantoprazole. Torrent stated that Kabvie will offer a new, effective treatment option for GERD. Aman Mehta, a director at Torrent, said the launch will help reduce the GERD burden and strengthen the company’s position in the Indian pharmaceutical market.
