What we do

United Therapeutics Corporation focuses on the strength of a balanced, value-creating biotechnology model.

We currently have five approved products on the market and a long-term mission of providing an unlimited supply of transplantable organs for those who need them.

We continue to research and develop treatments for cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, pediatric cancers and other orphan diseases.
