Deal comes amid previous exclusive marketing agreement.

Lupin revealed that it has inked an agreement with Menarini to acquire five of its legacy brands in strategic therapy. Including the areas of gastroenterology, urology, and anti-infectives, the brands are Piclin (Ppcosulphate sodium), Menoctyl (otilonium bromide), Sucramal O (sucralfate +oxetacaine), Pyridium (phenazopyridine) and Distaclor (cefaclor).
