Daiichi Sankyo Launches RANMARK(R), a Treatment for Bone Complications Stemming from Multiple Myeloma and Bone Metastases from Solid Tumors

Tokyo, Japan (April 17, 2012) – Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (hereafter, Daiichi Sankyo) today announced that it has launched RANMARK® (Subcutaneous Injection 120 mg) (INN: Denosumab (genetic recombination); Approval to market: January 18, 2012; NHI drug price listing: April 17, 2012) in Japan as a treatment for bone complications stemming from multiple myeloma and bone metastases from solid tumors.
