SILVER SPRING, Md., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Therapeutics Corporation (NASDAQ: UTHR) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.
"Our continued growth shows that our medicines are reaching increasing numbers of patients suffering from pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)," said Martine Rothblatt, Ph.D., United Therapeutics' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The commercial launch this quarter of our extended-release tablet called Orenitram® harkens an opportunity to bring prostacyclin-based medicine to more PAH patients in the U.S. than ever before, by providing a less-invasive route of administration than our prostacyclin infusion therapy called Remodulin®."
