Bravo FDA ... challenging efficacy not just rubber stamping ALKS new drug idea to market another bottle of miracle cure... looking at ALL phase 3 not just the ones that showed statistically significant results that the company said validated their drug... companies are notorious for choosing the studies that validate their thesis and dropping the ones that don't...oh and the CEO's breathless comment on the CC call yesterday that there have been no pharmacological advances for major depression for the past 30 years as a reason for the FDA to rush another drug to market belies the fact that studies have shown that medication and CBT therapy are equally effective after 6 months but that CBT effectiveness lasts years after completion while medication effectiveness diminishes rapidly after the medication is stopped .. as for pharmacological interventions.. take a look at this link form UCSD on alternatives ... https://health.ucsd.edu/news/features/Pages/2018-01-03-q-and-a-ketamine-for-depression.aspx

ALKS: We have held ALKS shares since 6/21/2002, current basis of $16.24, closed yesterday @ $43.51.


AVXL: With AVXL, we have held 5x shares of ALKS since 4/23/2015, split-adjusted basis of $1.80, closed yesterday @ $3.36.

There is a market...neither has penetrated. I speculate there will be room for both medications, when and if FDA approves both. I do not know[have an informed opinion] whether AVXL has "a better depression drug."

7:03AM Alkermes announces notice of allowance of U.S. Patent for a novel fumarate prodrug for Multiple Sclerosis; expects to file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application in mid-2014 (ALKS) 40.07 : Co announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Application 14/032,736, entitled "Prodrugs of fumarates and their use in treating various diseases."

The allowed composition of matter claims will cover Alkermes' MMF prodrug, ALKS 8700, a proprietary, small-molecule prodrug of monomethyl fumarate (MMF) for the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
The Notice of Allowance resulted from a prioritized examination granted by the USPTO, and the allowed claims are directed toward a novel MMF prodrug that is designed to rapidly and efficiently convert to MMF in the body.
Alkermes expects to file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and initiate a phase 1 study of ALKS 8700 in mid 2014.

7:03AM Alkermes announces alignment with FDA on plans for pivotal program for ALKS 5461 for Major Depressive Disorder; program to begin in early 2014 (ALKS) 30.29 : Co has successfully completed its End-of-Phase 2 interactions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the company plans to advance ALKS 5461 into phase 3 development in early 2014. Alkermes is developing ALKS 5461 for the treatment of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) who have inadequate response to standard therapies. The company and the FDA agreed on key elements of the development program, including preclinical and clinical requirements for the New Drug Application, the confirmatory study plans, the incorporation of innovative study designs that include the use of sequential parallel comparison design (SPCD), the primary endpoint and the statistical methodology. In September 2013, in advance of a planned End-of-Phase 2 meeting, Alkermes submitted a written briefing document detailing design elements of the proposed development program. The FDA's written responses aligned with the company's proposals such that the End-of-Phase 2 meeting was deemed unnecessary.

7:00AM Alkermes presents positive results from phase 2 clinical study of ALKS 5461 in major depressive disorder at 53rd Annual NCDEU Meeting; ALKS 5461 met its primary endpoint (ALKS) 33.58 : Co announced the presentation of positive phase 2 data for ALKS 5461, a novel opioid modulator, in patients with major depressive disorder and inadequate response to standard therapies. In the phase 2 study, ALKS 5461 met its primary endpoint, met key secondary endpoints and demonstrated significant reduction in depressive symptoms versus placebo. The study is being presented in an oral session at the 53rd Annual New Clinical Drug Evaluation Unit Meeting in Hollywood, Fla., by Maurizio Fava, M.D., of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

The phase 2 study of ALKS 5461 utilized a sequential parallel comparison design, designed to reduce the impact of clinically meaningful response to treatment with placebo. The study included two four-week, randomized, double-blind stages run in sequence: an Initial Study Stage and a Successive Study Stage. The Successive Study Stage randomized only those patients who were non-responders to placebo in the Initial Study Stage. Both stages of the phase 2 study evaluated two doses of ALKS 5461, a lower dose and a higher dose.

In the phase 2 results for the overall study population, including both the Initial Study Stage and the Successive Study Stage, patients who received either dose of ALKS 5461 for a treatment period of four weeks showed a significant reduction in depressive symptoms from baseline in HAM-D17 and MADRS scores, compared to placebo. The primary endpoint of the phase 2 study was the change from baseline in depressive symptoms over a four-week treatment period in the overall study population, as measured by HAM-D17, compared to placebo. Data from the study showed that ALKS 5461 was generally well tolerated. The most common adverse events observed in the study were nausea, headache and dizziness.

7:01AM Alkermes presents positive results from Phase 1 study of ALKS 3831 as a broad spectrum treatment for Schizophrenia; difference between the ALKS 3831 treatment group and the control group receiving olanzapine alone was statistically significant (ALKS) 32.84 : Co presented positive results from a phase 1 study of ALKS 3831, a novel drug candidate for the treatment of schizophrenia, in an oral session at the 53rd Annual New Clinical Drug Evaluation Unit Meeting in Hollywood, Fla. By combining a novel opioid modulator, ALKS 33, and olanzapine, an antipsychotic drug commercially available as ZYPREXA?, ALKS 3831 is designed to be a broad spectrum treatment for schizophrenia with the potential benefits of reduced weight gain associated with olanzapine and expanded utility in patients with schizophrenia and comorbid substance abuse.

The phase 1, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo- and active-controlled study was designed to compare the mean change from baseline in body weight following three weeks of oral administration of ALKS 3831 in a study that included 106 healthy, normal-weight male volunteers. The safety and tolerability results for ALKS 3831 were overall similar to those observed with the olanzapine-only treatment group. Healthy volunteers who received ALKS 3831 gained an average of 2.5 kg (5.5 lbs), while subjects who received olanzapine alone gained an average of 3.4 kg. The difference between the ALKS 3831 treatment group and the control group receiving olanzapine alone was statistically significant over the three-week study period, with a trend indicating the potential for even greater differentiation over longer study periods.

Based on the positive results of the phase 1 study, Alkermes plans to initiate a phase 2 dose-ranging study of ALKS 3831 in mid calendar 2013.

Today, we are further improving our financial expectations for fiscal 2013 based on strong operational performance in the first six months, and we now expect Alkermes to generate between $120 million and $140 million in non-GAAP net income this fiscal year."

Alkermes, Plc (ALKS)
ZacksBy Zacks Equity Research | Zacks – 8 hours ago

We are upgrading Alkermes Plc (ALKS) to Outperform following the upwardly revised adjusted earnings guidance provided by the company for fiscal 2013. The guidance was boosted following the successful completion of the refinancing of Alkermes' previously outstanding senior secured bank debt.

Alkermes has been performing well since the purchase of Elan's EDT unit last year, thanks to the expanded portfolio. Moreover, the US approval of type II diabetes drug, Bydureon, is a major positive for Alkermes as the drug offers significant commercial potential. We are also pleased by the pipeline progress at Alkermes.

We believe that there is significant scope for stock price appreciation from current levels. Our price target of $24.00 is based on 6.1x our fiscal 2013 revenue estimate.

12:55AM Alkermes and Amylin Pharmaceuticals (AMLN) reports BYDUREON associated with significant and sustained glycemic control at four years (ALKS) 15.39 : Cos announce results from the long-term extension of the DURATION-1 study, which showed that BYDUREON, the first and only once-weekly treatment for type 2 diabetes, was associated with clinically significant and sustained improvements in glycemic control during four years of treatment in adults with type 2 diabetes. In the study, patients completing four years of BYDUREON treatment experienced clinically significant improvements in A1C (1.7 percentage points) and fasting plasma glucose from baseline. A1C is a measure of average blood sugar over three months. Although BYDUREON is not indicated for weight loss, patients treated with BYDUREON also lost an average of 5.5 pounds from baseline. Patients treated with BYDUREON also experienced statistically significant reductions in certain cardiovascular risk markers, including systolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides (-13%). No unexpected safety findings were observed with long-term BYDUREON therapy, and incidence of mild nausea, the most common adverse event during the controlled portion of the study, decreased over time.

4:01PM Alkermes announces ALKS 37 product profile did not satisfy their pre-specified criteria for advancing into phase 3 clinical trials (ALKS) 16.06 -0.52 : Co announces topline results from a phase 2b dose-ranging clinical study of ALKS 37 in the treatment of opioid-induced constipation. The multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, repeat-dose study was designed to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic profile and efficacy of ALKS 37 in approximately 150 patients. ALKS 37 was generally well tolerated at all dose levels, and while subjects taking ALKS 37 demonstrated an increase in bowel movements compared to baseline, the product profile did not satisfy pre-specified criteria for advancing into phase 3 clinical trials. Based on this evaluation, Alkermes has decided not to advance ALKS 37 and will consider out-licensing opportunities. "We had predetermined the product profile we needed to observe in order to continue to advance ALKS 37 into phase 3 clinical studies. Based on the results of this study, we will focus our future clinical development efforts on our other development programs, including ALKS 9070 for schizophrenia and ALKS 5461 for major depressive disorder, we will continue to maintain a disciplined approach to R&D and focus our resources on clinical candidates that show the most promise." A second phase 2b study of ALKS 37 for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation is concluding, and no additional clinical studies for ALKS 37 are planned.
