Daiichi Sankyo and Lilly Receive U.S. FDA Approval for Effient(TM)
Date:7/10/2009

PARSIPPANY, N.J. and INDIANAPOLIS, July 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Daiichi Sankyo, Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Effient(TM) (prasugrel) tablets for the reduction of thrombotic cardiovascular events (including stent thrombosis) in patients with acute coronary syndromes who are managed with an artery-opening procedure known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PCI usually includes the placement of a stent to help keep the artery open.

Effient (pronounced Ef-fee-ent) helps keep blood platelets from sticking together to form clots, which can block an artery. Taking Effient with aspirin after PCI has been shown to reduce the chances of having a cardiac event (such as a heart attack) and stent-related blood clots (known as stent thrombosis) among patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS), a common cardiovascular condition.

"After more than a decade of research and testing, we are proud to provide this new treatment option to patients with ACS who are managed with PCI," said Takashi Shoda, president and chief executive officer, Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited. "Our Daiichi Sankyo and Lilly alliance will launch Effient in the U.S. in the coming weeks."

"The FDA approval of Effient is a major step forward in the treatment of acute coronary syndromes," said John Lechleiter, Ph.D., chairman and chief executive officer of Eli Lilly and Company. "The Daiichi Sankyo/Lilly alliance has provided doctors with an important new option that provides greater protection against thrombotic cardiovascular events to help those suffering with ACS who are being managed with PCI."

Effient should be initiated with a loading dose of 60 mg followed by a maintenance dose of 10 mg once daily. In addition, for those
