Drug firm Zydus Cadila Tuesday said it has received a tentative nod from the US health regulator to market generic Deferasirox tablets used to treat high iron levels in the body.

The company has received tentative approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) to market Deferasirox tablets in the strengths of 90 mg, 180 mg, and 360 mg.
