Medivation Inc., which is now a part of Pfizer, Inc. is focused on the rapid development of novel small molecule drugs to treat serious diseases for which there are limited treatment options. Medivation’s goal is to transform the treatment of these diseases and offer hope to critically ill patients and their families. With the approval of Xtandi (enzalutamide) capsules in late August 2012 and the product launch immediately following, Medivation is continuing to build and develop a world-class workforce to take the company to the next strategic level. Medivation was founded in 2004 by a group of experienced professionals with a long track record of working together successfully as a team in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. They founded Medivation to leverage that expertise to bridge the medical product development gap between early-stage development and product launch.
