LEAWOOD, Kan., Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Elanco Animal Health, a division of Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) and Aratana Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: PETX), today announced the European Medicine Agency's (EMA) Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP) adopted a positive opinion to recommend the marketing authorization of GALLIPRANT(®) (grapiprant tablets) in the European Union.
