The manufacturer of the drug Astellas is proud of coming up with the unique pill. Astellas has filed an appeal to European Medicines Agency (EMA) for making the drug available for commercial usage. At the time of trial of the drug, Dr. Gerhardt Attard played an important role. The trail of the drug was carried out at the Institute for Cancer Research (ICR).
