The Medicines Company Company Profile

05:22 EST 21st November 2017 | BioPortfolio

The Medicines Company was founded in 1996 to acquire, develop and commercialize selected pharmaceutical products in late stages of development and approved products. In December 2000, the Company received marketing approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for ANGIOMAX for use as an anticoagulant in combination with aspirin in patients with unstable angina undergoing coronary balloon angioplasty. The Company began selling ANGIOMAX in the United States in January 2001. The Company expects ANGIOMAX to be the cornerstone product of a planned acute hospital franchise. The Company is also developing a second product, CTV-05, a proprietary biotherapeutic agent with a potentially broad range of applications in the treatment of gynecological and reproductive infections.
