The company’s Abbreviated New Drug Application was acquired from Teva Pharmaceutical Industries in connection with the acquisition of Ivax by Teva in January 2006. Barr plans to launch a product that is supplied by Teva in September 2007. Dostinex had annual sales of approximately $68 million for the twelve months ended May 2007. Cabergoline tablets are used in the treatment of certain hormone problems related to milk production and may also be used for prolactin-producing tumors and to adjust hormone levels.
