Both these tablets are antineoplastic drugs used in the treatment of certain types of cancers.

Natco Pharma Ltd, a multinational pharmaceutical company headquartered in Hyderabad, announced today the launch of Tipanat tablets, a novel antineoplastic nucleoside analogue used in the treatment of advanced colorectal and gastric cancer, which affects approximately 1,25,000 people every year in India.

The Tipanat tablet is a brand new fixed-dose combination of Trifluridine and Tipiracil, that has been launched for the first time in India. Owing to its usefulness in extending survival as well as preserving the quality of life in the late lines of treatment, Tipanat is a very significant launch.
