Merck Korea makes contract with LG to market new drug

Merck Korea, the local unit of German pharmaceutical and chemical company Merck, said yesterday that it has signed a deal with LG Life Sciences, a biopharmaceutical company, to exclusively market and sell LG’s drug Rovatitan Tab, a treatment for hypertension and hyperlipidemia.

Michael Grund, managing director of Merck Korea, said, “Compared with valsartan monotherapy, Rovatitan Tab has additional blood pressure lowering effects, resulting in a strong synergy in blood pressure lowering and its powerful lipidemia improvement effects can minimize cardiovascular risk.”
