marketing for patients with angina by several regulatory agencies throughout the world. The drug has never been submitted for review by the fda because the french manufacturer, servier, lacked an american subsidiary to market the drug. However in july 2013, amgen announced that it had obtained commercial rights in the U.S. To this novel oral drug for further tests.
