Pfizer and Astellas co-promote Caduet

Pfizer Japan and Astellas have agreed to co-promote a combination hypertension and hypercholesterolemia drug in Japan

The treatment, Caduet Combination Tablets, is an oral combination of Pfizer's hypertension treatment, Norvasc (amlodipine besylate) and hypercholesterolemia drug, Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium). The single tablet combination is expected to improve patient adherence.

Under the terms of the agreement (which lasts until July 2016), Pfizer will manufacture the combination treatment and be responsible for sales, while both companies will promote it.

The companies have worked together previously and co-promote Lipitor. Caduet Combination Tablets are approved in more than 70 countries/areas and will be available in Japan once listed on Japan's National Health Insurance drug price list.
