About Medicines Co.
The Medicines Company, a pharmaceutical company, focuses on the treatment of critical care patients through the delivery of medicines to the worldwide hospital marketplace.
The company markets two products, Angiomax (bivalirudin) and Cleviprex (clevidipine butyrate) injectable emulsion; , and a pipeline of critical care hospital products in development, including two late-stage development product candidates, cangrelor and oritavancin, two early stage development product candidates, CU2010 and ApoA-I Milano, and marketing rights in the United States and Canada to a ready-to-use formulation of Argatroban for which a new drug application, or NDA, has been submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, or FDA.
The company markets Angiomax, an intravenous direct thrombin inhibitor, primarily in the United States and Europe (under the name Angiox (bivalirudin)) to interventional cardiologist and other key clinical decision makers in cardiac catheterization laboratories for its approved uses in patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI, including in patients with or at risk of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and thrombosis syndrome, a complication of heparin administration known as HIT/HITTS that can result in limb amputation, multi organ failure and death. In Europe, the company also markets Angiomax for use in adult patients with acute coronary syndrome, or ACS.
The company markets Cleviprex to anesthesiology/surgery, critical care and emergency department practitioners in the United States for its approved use for the reduction of blood pressure when oral therapy is not feasible or not desirable. The company intends to continue to develop Angiomax and Cleviprex for use in additional patient populations. It markets Cleviprex to anesthesiology/surgery, critical care, and emergency department practitioners in the United States.
Under the terms of its agreement with AstraZeneca, the company has exclusive license rights to develop, market, and sell cangrelor worldwide, excluding Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand. The company is developing cangrelor for use as an intravenous antiplatelet agent to prevent platelet activation and aggregation that leads to thrombosis in the critical care setting of the cardiac catheterization laboratory to address unmet medical needs in patients with ACS or undergoing PCI.
The company obtained rights to oritavancin as a result of the acquisition of Targanta in February 2009. Oritavancin is an intravenous antibiotic that the company is developing for the treatment of serious gram-positive bacterial infections. It is synthetically modified from a naturally occurring compound. Oritavancin was originally discovered and developed by Eli Lilly and Company, or Eli Lilly, to combat a spectrum of gram-positive pathogens in response to the emergence of resistance to vancomycin. The company has exclusive rights to develop, market, and sell oritavancin worldwide under a license agreement with Eli Lilly.
The company acquired CU2010 in August 2008 as a result of its acquisition of Curacyte Discovery. CU2010 is a small molecule serine protease inhibitor that the company is developing for the reduction of blood loss during surgery. The company commenced a Phase 1a clinical trial of CU2010 in Switzerland in July 2009 to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of CU2010 in 32 healthy volunteers.
The company licensed exclusive worldwide rights to ApoA-I Milano from Pfizer in December 2009. ApoA-I Milano is a naturally occurring variant of a protein found in human HDL that has the potential to reverse atherosclerotic plaque development and reduce the risk of coronary events in patients with ACS.
Ready-to-Use Formulation Argatroban
In 2009, the company licensed marketing rights in the United States and Canada to a ready-to-use formulation of Argatroban developed by Eagle. Argatroban, marketed by GlaxoSmithKline in a concentrated formulation, is approved as an anticoagulant in the United States for prophylaxis or the treatment of thrombosis in patients with or at risk for HIT and for patients with or at risk for HIT undergoing PCI.
The company sells Angiomax primarily to a limited number of domestic wholesalers with distribution centers located throughout the United States and to international distributors. The sole source distributor and two domestic wholesaler customers include AmerisourceBergen Drug Corporation and Cardinal Health, Inc.
Angiomax: GP IIb/IIIa inhibitors with which Angiomax competes include ReoPro from Eli Lilly and Johnson & Johnson/Centocor, Inc., Integrilin from Schering-Plough Corporation, and Aggrastat from Iroko Pharmaceuticals, LLC and MediCure Inc.
Cangrelor: Cangrelor would compete with oral platelet inhibitors that are used in critical care settings, such as Plavix from Bristol Meyers Squibb/Sanofi Pharmaceuticals Partnership, and prasugrel, an anti-platelet agent from Eli Lilly and Sankyo Co., Ltd.
Oritavancin: Oritavancin would compete with drugs that target serious gram-positive infections acquired or treated in hospitals such as vancomycin, a generic drug that is manufactured by various companies, daptomycin from Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc., linezolid from Pfizer Inc., quinupristin/dalfopristin from Sanofi-Aventis and Monarch Pharmaceuticals Inc., telavancin, from Theravance, Inc. and Astellas Pharma Inc., teicoplanin from Sanofi-Aventis, and tigecycline from Pfizer.
Ready-to-Use Argatroban: The ready-to-use formulation of Argatroban that the company licensed, if approved, would compete with the Argatroban promoted by GlaxoSmithKline.
The Medicines Company was founded in 1996.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
