(MPI), a California based pharmaceutical manufacturer has received an approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for an abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) for Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate Injection USP, 250 mg/mL (1.25 g/5 mL vials).
The FDA has determined MPI’s Hydroxyprogesterone Caproate Injection USP, 250 mg/ mL (1.25 g/5 mL vials) to be bioequivalent and, therefore, therapeutically equivalent to Delalutin Injection, 250 mg/mL formerly produced by Bristol Myers Squibb.

Ronald M. McGuff, President and CEO of the Company, commented "This goal was achieved in-house by multidisciplinary teams. I appreciate and thank each employee for their hard work, dedication and diligence to achieve this significant goal. HPC represents our first U.S. generic approval in a pipeline that includes generic and new drug products.” Damon Jones, Vice President of Operations for MPI, noted, “We are very excited to continue to move HPC to commercial launch and provide patient access to this important product.”
