Citigroup notes that Alkermes (ALKS) was issued a United States patent for its pro-drug of mono-methyl fumarate, the active ingredient in Biogen's (BIIB) Tecfidera. Citi views the patent as supporting the regulatory potential of ALKS 8700, and notes the drug is a long-term threat to Tecfidera. The firm says Phase 1 data expected by year-end 2014 could be meaningful and keeps a Buy rating on Alkermes with a $60 price target.

08:11 EDTALKSAlkermes delay for Aristada due to administrative issues, says Jefferies
Jefferies said it appears that the FDA's delay in approving Alkermes' Aristada is due to the agency's need for some additional review time. The firm said the fact that the FDA did not choose to issue a CRL letter gives it confidence that Alkermes should receive full approval in a "few weeks" and it maintains its Buy rating and $76 price target on the stock.

16:01 EDTALKSAlkermes provides update on FDA review of ARISTADA
Alkermes announced that the U.S. FDA has advised Alkermes that it will not be able to complete its review of the New Drug Application for ARISTADA for the treatment of schizophrenia by the Prescription Drug User Fee Act action date of Aug. 22, 2015. The FDA indicated that this delay was expected to be brief, measured in terms of weeks, but could not confirm specific timing. The FDA also indicated that no additional data or information is required from Alkermes at this time. "We are confident in the ARISTADA program and our NDA submission, and we will work closely with the FDA as they complete their review," said Elliot Ehrich, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Alkermes. "We look forward to bringing ARISTADA to market as a potential new treatment option to help address the significant unmet medical needs of patients living with schizophrenia."

07:05 EDTBIIBBiogen, ALS Association, Columbia collaborate to drive understanding of ALS
Biogen, the ALS Association and Columbia University Medical Center announced a new collaboration to better understand the differences and commonalities in the ALS disease process and how genes influence the clinical features of the disease. The project, "Genomic Translation for ALS Clinical care", will involve a combination of next generation genetic sequencing and detailed clinical phenotyping in 1500 people with ALS. The goal of the project is to provide a basis for the development of precision medicine, or more individually tailored therapies for ALS. "We want to bring genomics right to the point of care in ALS where instead of focusing on retrospective DNA samples with limited clinical information, we focus on patients who are under active clinical management," said ALS Association Chief Scientist Lucie Bruijn, Ph.D., M.B.A. "By focusing on patients seen by participating ALS clinics, this project will allow investigators to ask how different genetic causes of ALS translate into different clinical consequences."
