Amarin is a rapidly growing, innovative pharmaceutical company
leading a new paradigm in cardiovascular disease management. From
our scientific research foundation to our focus on clinical trials,
and now our commercial expansion, we are evolving and growing. In
2009, Amarin had fewer than twenty employees. Today, with offices
in Bridgewater, New Jersey in the United States, Dublin in Ireland,
and Zug in Switzerland, Amarin has approximately 1,000 employees
and commercial partners and suppliers around the world. We are
committed to rethinking cardiovascular risk through the advancement
of scientific understanding of the impact on society of significant
residual risk that exists beyond traditional therapies, such as
statins for cholesterol management.
VASCEPA (icosapent ethyl) capsules are the first-and-only
prescription treatment approved by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) comprised solely of the active ingredient,
icosapent ethyl (IPE), a unique form of eicosapentaenoic acid.
VASCEPA was launched in the United States in January 2020 as the
first and only drug approved by the U.S. FDA for treatment of the
studied high-risk patients with persistent cardiovascular risk
after statin therapy. VASCEPA was initially launched in the United
States in 2013 based on the drug's initial FDA approved indication
for use as an adjunct therapy to diet to reduce triglyceride levels
in adult patients with severe (500 mg/dL) hypertriglyceridemia. In
addition to the United States, VASCEPA is approved and sold in
Canada, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. In Europe, marketing
authorization was granted to icosapent ethyl in the European Union
for the reduction of risk of cardiovascular events in patients at
high cardiovascular risk, under the brand name VAZKEPA.
