Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients

Mylan offers one of the world’s broadest portfolios of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API)—the ingredients responsible for the therapeutic effects of medications. We provide API to customers in more than 100 countries.

As with any Mylan product or effort, quality begins at step one. Mylan uses an established testing and verification process to ensure the suitability of active ingredients used in our medicines.

Vertical Integration

Being a manufacturer of API makes Mylan one of the few global generics companies with a comprehensive, vertically integrated supply chain. This provides us with an extra measure in the quality process that we can own, and it also helps us maintain deep insight into diverse markets and therapeutic segments.

Mylan also is one of the world’s largest producers of API for generic antiretrovirals (ARVs) used in the treatment of HIV/AIDS. We produce API for antibacterial, central nervous system agents, antihistamines/anti-asthmatics, cardiovascular, antivirals, antidiabetics, antifungals, and proton pump inhibitors.
