Our recent successes include the antihypertensive agent olmesartan (Olmetec®), launched in 2002 by Sankyo and now available in more than 20 countries around the world; the antiplatelet agent prasugrel (Efient®), launched in 2009 for patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI); and edoxaban (Lixiana®), the first available factor Xa inhibitor in Japan, which launched in 2011 to help prevent venous thromboembolism (VTE).
