Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 Maggio 2019

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) today announced the launch of a generic version of Letairis®1 (ambrisentan) Tablets, 5 mg and 10 mg, in the U.S.
Ambrisentan is an endothelin receptor antagonist indicated for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) (WHO Group 1) to improve exercise ability and delay clinical worsening. In combination with tadalafil, ambrisentan is indicated to reduce the risks of disease progression and hospitalization for worsening PAH, and to improve exercise ability. For all female patients, ambrisentan tablets are only available through a restricted program called the Ambrisentan Risk Evaluation & Mitigation Strategy (REMS) due to the risk of fetal harm.“The launch of ambrisentan tablets in the U.S. is an important addition to Teva’s growing generic portfolio of nearly 60 cardiovascular medicines,” said Brendan O’Grady, EVP and Head of North America Commercial. “Our ability to help treat this disease is a testament to our commitment to providing affordable, generic treatment options to people living with chronic, life-long conditions.”With nearly 500 generic medicines available, Teva has the largest portfolio of FDA-approved generic products on the market and holds the leading position in first-to-file opportunities, with over 100 pending first-to-files in the U.S. Currently, one in eight generic prescriptions dispensed in the U.S. is filled with a Teva generic product.
