Daiichi Sankyo Quietly Grows While Other Pharmaceutical Firms Downsize

ctive products, but that, despite its presence in the U.S. for 46 years, most Americans do not recognize the company by name.

"That's because in the past our Japanese parent companies traditionally licensed our products to larger companies to market," explains Pieroni. "Sankyo discovered the statins, a lipid-lowering class of drugs which are now the mainstay of today's cholesterol reduction. Sankyo discovered the first statin, mevastatin, and co-discovered lovastatin with Merck, the first statin to be marketed.
