Approved Product Update:
KengrealTM (cangrelor) – In June, the
U.S. Food and Drug Administration( FDA) approved Kengreal, the first and only intravenous, reversible P2Y12 platelet inhibitor, as an adjunct to percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) to reduce the risk of periprocedural myocardial infarction (MI), repeat coronary revascularization, and stent thrombosis (ST) in patients who have not been treated with a P2Y12 platelet inhibitor and are not being given a glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor. The Kengreal U.S. launch team includes 85 field sales professionals who are introducing this product to the same cardiac catheterization laboratories in which they promoted Angiomax.
- Orbactiv® (oritavancin)- Formulary adoption programs continue on track, hospitals and infusion centers continue to revise care pathways to enable patients with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI) caused by susceptible designated Gram-positive pathogens to be treated using a single infusion. In addition, reimbursement processes are adapting to this single dose treatment approach to ABSSSI patient management.
Minocin® (minocycline) for Injection - On
April 17, 2015, the FDAapproved the sNDA for RPX-602 - a new formulation of Minocin for Injection, which allows for a lower dilution volume range to treat infections due to the susceptible strains of designated organisms, including those caused by Acinetobacter spp. In addition, the FDAdesignated RPX-602 as a qualified infectious disease product (QIDP) under the GAIN Act.
Ionsys® (fentanyl iontophoretic transdermal system) - On
April 30, 2015, the FDAapproved Ionsys, the first needle-free, patient-controlled, pre-programmed fentanyl delivery system, for the short-term management of acute post-operative pain in adult patients requiring opioid analgesia in the hospital. Ionsys became available to the US market as anticipated in mid-July. The dedicated Ionsys U.S. launch team initially includes 65 dedicated field sales professionals. The Ionsys Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) Program to mitigate the risks of respiratory depression resulting from accidental exposure to persons for whom Ionsys is not prescribed is underway as required by the FDA.
RaplixaTM (fibrin sealant (human)) - On
April 30, 2015, the FDAapproved Raplixa and the RaplixaSpray (RAPLIXA Delivery Device) as an adjunct to hemostasis for mild to moderate bleeding in adults undergoing surgery when control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature and cautery) is ineffective or impractical. As stated previously, we are scaling manufacturing of Raplixa in preparation for launch.
Please see for complete indication and important safety information for these products.
Investigational Product Candidates Update:
ALN-PCSsc (PCSK9) – The Phase 1 clinical study of the investigational
agent ALN-PCSsc in subjects with elevated low-density-lipoprotein
cholesterol (LDL-C) is fully enrolled. The study is examining the
effects of single or multiple subcutaneous doses of ALN-PCSsc on
safety, pharmacokinetics, serum levels of LDL-C and plasma levels.
Data from this study will be presented at the
European Society of Cardiology Congresson August 30th in London.
- MDCO-216 (ApoA-I Milano) – In May, the company presented new data from a Phase 1 clinical study which showed significant remodeling effects on HDL-cholesterol particles which may result in reduced plaque burden in patients with atherosclerotic disease. A clinical study to affirm cholesterol efflux and efflux saturation and to assess ultrasound-measured plaque regression is underway with results anticipated by the first quarter of 2016.
ABP-700 – Data presented at the 2015 Annual
Dutch Society of Anesthesiology Conferenceduring the second quarter showed the compound’s anesthetic effect and potentially advantageous onset and offset attributes as well as promising characteristics related to respiration, blood pressure and heart rate. We expect additional clinical data will be presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologistsannual meeting, October 24-28, 2015, in San Diego.
Carbavance (meropenem/RPX7009) – Patient enrollment is continuing in
the two ongoing Phase 3 TANGO clinical studies to assess the efficacy
and safety of this anti-infective combination therapy in patients with
complicated urinary tract infections including acute pyelonephritis
and in patients with carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE)
infections. We expect data from multiple studies from the infectious
disease portfolio will be presented at the
American Societyfor Microbiology’s ICAAC 2015 conference in September in San Diego.

expense, changes in contingent consideration, arbitration award,
milestone payments, non-cash interest, impairment charges, gain on
