The global cold, cough, and sore throat remedies market is expected to expand as more treatments are approved and launched. Xofluza (baloxavir marboxil) obtained supplementary New Drug Use clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration in October 2019 for the treatment of acute, uncomplicated influenza, or flu, in people aged 12 and up.
