In an effort to boost its US presence, Sankyo licensed exclusive marketing rights here to GelTex's (developing polymer-based drugs that bind and eliminate targeted substances in the intestines) Welchol (colesevelam hydrochloride), a cholesterol-lowering drug awaiting FDA approval. It also optioned worldwide rights to a second-generation version of the drug that GelTex says is twice as potent, GT102-279, which is in Phase II trials.
