Cadila Healthcare rallied 4 percent intraday on October 9 after getting the US health regulator’s nod for a cholesterol-lowering drug.

"Zydus Cadila has received the final approval from the USFDA to market Colesevelam Hydrochloride tablets, (US RLD - Welchol), which is available in 625 mg strength," the company said in a BSE filing.

This medication is used to lower cholesterol, which decreases the risk of heart disease and helps prevent strokes and heart attacks.
