King Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Company Profile

King Pharmaceuticals might not have ruled the drug market, but it didn't mind taking the reins on certain areas of medicine. The company was engaged in marketing pain management drugs and developing late-stage pharmaceutical candidates in the areas of neuroscience and acute care. It had a portfolio of branded prescription products, including chronic pain drug Avinza, muscle relaxant Skelaxin, and blood-loss control aid Thrombin-JMI. It also produced emergency drug delivery devices through subsidiary Meridian Medical Technologies and medicated feed additives through Alpharma Animal Health. King Pharmaceuticals was acquired by Pfizer in 2011 for about $3.6 billion.
