New drug application for high blood pressure rejected $43 now.
Roche Hit By European Infringement Charge, XOMA Offers Shares: Healthcare Business Recap
By Mark Lawson | More Articles
October 24, 2012
The European Medicines Agency on Wednesday affirmed that it is bringing an infringement procedure against Roche (RHHBY.OB), claiming that the company did not properly check out some 80,000 reports of issues received from U.S. patients and doctors relating to 19 of the firm’s drugs, including the top performers Herceptin and Avastin. Roche could be penalized by as much as 5 percent of its yearly revenues if found guilty.
Shares of United Therapeutics Corporation (NASDAQ:UTHR) go over the cliff on word that on Wednesday the FDA rejected the firm’s new drug application for treprostinil, which is an oral treatment for high blood pressure. The agency said that it is uncertain as to whether another evaluation would help reverse its decision, but did indicate that if the company elects to conduct a further trial, it should consider a fixed dose design and more frequent dosing.

UTHR hit almost 52 weeks low level-$40 on failure of oral version:
United Therapeutics down as drug misses study goal
United Therapeutics says oral treprostinil missed goal in late-stage trial, and stock sinks

UTHR 40.13 -8.62

On Wednesday August 24, 2011, 11:35 am EDT

NEW YORK (AP) -- United Therapeutics Corp. said Wednesday that its blood pressure drug treprostinil did not work better than a placebo in a late-stage clinical trial.

Analysts said the results make it less likely the Food and Drug Administration will grant marketing approval for the drug. United Therapeutics reported successful results from a separate late-stage trial in June, and the company said it still plans to file for approval in the first half of 2012.

Shares of United Therapeutics lost $8.30, or 17 percent, to $40.45 in morning trading.

The latest study was designed to evaluate oral treprostinil as a treatment for pulmonary arterial hypertension, or high blood pressure in the lungs. The patients were treated with standard therapies and either oral treprostinil or a placebo. Researchers measured how far the patients could walk in six minutes at the start of the trial, and took another measurement after 16 weeks. United Therapeutics said the patients who were given treprostinil could not walk farther than patients treated with the placebo.

The drug also did not meet secondary goals like reducing shortness of breath or fatigue, or treating other symptoms. There were 310 patients in the study. The company said that at the start of the trial, the patients' median walking distance was 333 meters, or almost 1,100 feet, in six minutes. United Therapeutics said the most common side effects of treprostinil were headache, nausea, and vomiting, and 18 treprostinil patients left the trial because of those or other side effects. Five patients from the placebo group left the trial before it finished.

In the other late-stage trial, United Therapeutics said patients treated with oral treprostinil were able to walk farther than patients who received a placebo after 12 weeks of treatment. The Silver Spring, Md., company already sells an injectable version called Remodulin and an inhaled version called Tyvaso.

Citi Investment Research analyst Lucy Lu said Wednesday's data "significantly lowers the probability of approval." Lu wrote in June that the results from the previous trial were "good, but not great." She maintained a "Buy" rating on the stock with a price target of $71 per share.

Collins Stewart analyst Salveen Richter said she was also not sure the data from the two studies would convince the FDA to approve oral treprostinil. Richter noted that the patients in the second trial were generally sicker than those in the first trial.

5:31AM United Therapeutics: FREEDOM-C trial of oral treprostinil in pulmonary arterial hypertension does not meet primary endpoint (UTHR) 48.76 : Co announces the completion of its FREEDOM-C Phase 3 trial of treprostinil diethanolamine, an investigational sustained release oral formulation of treprostinil, a stable synthetic form of prostacyclin, in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension. Preliminary analysis demonstrates that the trial did not achieve statistical significance for the primary endpoint, six-minute walk distance at Week 16. Overall, 132 (84%) oral treprostinil and 138 (90%) placebo patients completed Week 16 with an average dose of 3.0 plus or minus 1.9 mg twice daily in the oral treprostinil group. Discontinuations due to adverse events were 18 (11%) and 5 (3%) in the treprostinil and placebo groups, respectively. Adverse events associated with discontinuations were typically prostacyclin-related effects including headache, nausea and vomiting. Preliminary analysis of other secondary efficacy measures, including time to clinical worsening, change in combined 6MWD and Borg Dyspnea Score rating and Dyspnea-Fatigue index, WHO functional class, and PAH signs and symptoms, did not differ significantly between oral treprostinil and placebo. Further review and analysis of the FREEDOM-C preliminary results are ongoing.

United Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2009 Financial Results

- Revenues of $79.7 Million, Increase of 29% over First Quarter 2008

SILVER SPRING, Md., May 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United Therapeutics Corporation (NASDAQ:UTHR) today announced its results of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2009. Total revenues for the first quarter of 2009 were $79.7 million, up from $62.0 million for the first quarter of 2008. Net income for the first quarter of 2009 was $13.2 million, or $0.50 per basic share, compared to $9.9 million, or $0.44 per basic share, for the first quarter of 2008. Gross margins from sales were $70.4 million for the first quarter of 2009, compared to $54.5 million for the first quarter of 2008. Earnings before non-cash charges, defined as net income before non-cash interest and income taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairment charges and share-based compensation (stock option and share tracking award expense), were $37.1 million for the first quarter of 2009, up 44% from $25.8 million for the first quarter of 2008.

Results for the first quarter of 2008 have been adjusted for the retrospective adoption of Financial Accounting Standards Board Staff Position No. APB 14-1 (FSP APB 14-1), which became effective January 1, 2009. The retrospective adoption of FSP APB 14-1 resulted in the recognition of additional non-cash interest expense of approximately $2.7 million. Also, net income was reduced by approximately $(1.5) million, representing a reduction in earnings per share of $(0.07) per basic share and $(0.06) per diluted share, from what was previously reported.

"I am pleased that we started the year with an extremely strong first quarter," said Martine Rothblatt, Ph.D., United Therapeutics' Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Our core Remodulin franchise continues to grow and is now the preferred form of prostacyclin in North America."
