Mitsubishi Tanabe gets Market Authorization for BindRen for treatment of Hyperphosphatemia

Mitsubishi Tanabe European subsidiary Mitsubishi  Pharma Europe limited has received Market Authorization for BindRen (colestilan) for treatment of Hyperphosphatemia in patients with Chronic Kidney disease Stage V receiving haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.

In Japan, the product has been marketed since 1999 under the brand name "CHOLEBINE for the treatment of hypercholestorolemia.
