Daewoong will start its phase I clinical trial for DWJ1351, a new combination drug of amlodipine, olmesartan, and rosuvastatin.

According to the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, Daewoong got approval for its protocol for a phase I clinical trial for DWJ1351. Samsung Seoul Hospital will conduct the trial to find interactions among three agents.

DWJ1351 can be considered as a combo of Sevikar and Crestor. Sevikar sales were 50 billion won and Crestor sales were 90 billion won last year.

Sevikar HCT, a combo of Sevikar and hydrochlorothiazide, is already available on the market.

Other Korean drugmakers are also conducting their clinical trials for three-drug combos to treat both hypertension and hypercholesterolemia.
