  • The primary endpoint of the study is the time to the first occurrence of the composite endpoint of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke, coronary revascularization, or hospitalization for unstable angina
  • Secondary endpoints include time to event analyses of components of the primary endpoint

What is the nature of your relationship with Kowa Pharmaceuticals America, Inc. (Kowa)?

Amarin has a co-promotion agreement with Kowa through the end of 2018 under which Kowa uses a portion of the time of their sales force to help educate physicians in the U.S. on the use of Vascepa, along with promotion of its flagship branded statin product, LIVALO® (pitavastatin).  This co-promotion arrangement increases both the number of sales targets reached and the frequency of sales calls on existing sales targets. Kowa is responsible for the cost of its sales representatives and related promotional materials.  Amarin compensates Kowa with a co-promotion fee based on a percentage of Vascepa gross margins which fee is classified by Amarin as part of selling, general and administrative expenses.
