“2013 was, without doubt, one of the most eventful years in Medivir’s 25-year
history! The biggest single event during the year was the marketing approval of
simeprevir – a pharmaceutical for the treatment of patients with chronic
hepatitis C that we have helped develop. The approval has allowed the launch of
simeprevir in Japan, Canada and the USA. Hepatitis C infected patients can now
be treated using a drug that we have helped discover and develop. It is a source
of great satisfaction to all Medivir employees, myself included, that we have
developed a pharmaceutical all the way from a concept to a new treatment that
can cure people and save lives,” said Medivir’s CEO, Maris Hartmanis, in his
CEO’s Statement in this year’s Annual Report.”
