"The Inspection has been closed with a 'VAI' (Voluntary Action Indicated) classification in the EIR, for the three observations issued at the conclusion of the inspection in February 2020," Biocon added.

According to the US health regulator, a VAI classification "means objectionable conditions or practices were found but the agency is not prepared to take or recommend any administrative or regulatory action".

"The closing of the USFDA Inspection of our Malaysia Facility is an important milestone in our journey of developing Insulin Glargine for patients in the US," a company spokesperson said.

Further, the "Insulin Glargine (Semglee) application filed by our partner Mylan, with the USFDA under the 505(b)(2) NDA pathway, is currently under review.” the spokesperson added.

Insulin Glargine is a long-acting insulin used to treat adults with Type 2 diabetes and adults and pediatric patients with Type 1 diabetes for the control of high blood sugar.

Shares of Biocon Ltd were trading at Rs 278.55 a piece on BSE, up 2.94 percent from the previous close.
