PARSIPPANY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Frost & Sullivan 2011 Product Differentiation Excellence Award in Parenteral Anticoagulants recognizes Canyon Pharmaceuticals Group AG for the development and launch of Iprivask® (desirudin for injection). “Iprivask has been shown to prevent thrombosis significantly more effectively than the standard of care, with no increase in bleeding risk.
