U.S. FDA approves blood disorder drug made by Japan's Shionogi

Tue 31st July, 2018 8:15pm
July 31 (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration on
Tuesday approved Japan-based Shionogi & Co Ltd's  4507.T 
treatment for low blood-platelet count or thrombocytopenia in
patients with chronic liver disease.
    The treatment belongs to a new class of drugs called
thrombopoietin receptor agonists (TPO RA), which stimulate
platelet production.
    Its approval is the second for this class of drug for liver
disease patients, following the FDA's greenlight for U.S.-based
Dova Pharmaceuticals'  DOVA.O  rival treatment in May.
