CV Therapeutics will be able to market its novel angina treatment ranolazine as Ranexa in Europe following approval of the brand name by theEMEA. The product was granted approval last month for use as Latixa as an add-on therapy for the symptomatic treatment of patients with stable angina pectoris who are inadequately controlled or are intolerant to first-line antianginal therapies. The Ranexa name is used in the product's first market, the US, allowing brand synergy across these two major markets, CV Therapeutics notes.
