AstraZeneca PLC (AZN) said regulators in the U.S. will consider extending uses of its drug Farxiga.
The company said Monday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration accepted a supplemental new-drug application for Farxiga, agreeing to conduct a priority review of the therapy.
Regulators, in the new review, will consider the drug's use to treat patients facing the risk of cardiovascular death or the worsening of heart failure in some patients.
Adults with type two diabetes treat that disease with Farxiga, according to a website for the drug.
