Merck to launch Tredaptive internationally

Merck is to commence the launch of its cholesterol drug, Tredaptive in international markets by Q3 2009.

Tredaptive (also known as Cordaptive) is a therapy for patients with mixed dyslipidemia and primary hypercholesterolemia. It has been licensed in the EU for use in combination with statins or as a monotherapy when statins are inappropriate.

It is approved for use in 39 countries outside of the US. The FDA refused to approve the drug for use in the US until more supporting evidence was available.

"Merck is pleased that we are now able to supply Tredaptive in approved markets and continue our long-standing commitment to help address unmet medical needs in cardiovascular care," said Dr Luciano Rossetti, senior vice president and franchise head, atherosclerosis and cardiovascular, Merck Research Laboratories.
