POZEN filed an NDA for the following proposed indications:

  • To reduce the combined risk of death and nonfatal stroke in patients who have had ischemic stroke or transient ischemia of the brain due to fibrin platelet emboli
  • To reduce the combined risk of death and nonfatal MI in patients with a previous MI or unstable angina pectoris
  • To reduce the combined risk of MI and sudden death in patients with chronic stable angina pectoris
  • In patients who have undergone revascularization procedures (CABG, PTCA) when there is a pre-existing condition for which aspirin is already indicated, and to decrease the risk of developing gastric ulcers in patients at risk for developing aspirin-associated gastric ulcers
