Suloctidil was a sulfur-containing aminoalcohol that was brought to market in the early 1970s as a vasodilator by Continental Pharma, a Belgian company.[1]:118–121[2]

Continental was bought by Monsanto in 1984, primarily on the promise of sales of suloctidil, which was approved in Europe at the time, but not in the US.[3] However, in 1985 Monsanto halted development and withdrew the drug worldwide following reports of liver toxicity.[4]:251
