11:34 EDTALXNAlexion:Data show long-term benefits of chronic Soliris therapy in aHUS patients
Alexion Pharmaceuticals announced the presentation of two-year data that highlight the long-term benefits of chronic Soliris, eculizumab, therapy in patients with atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, aHUS, an ultra-rare genetic disease characterized by thrombotic microangiopathy, TMA, the formation of blood clots in small blood vessels throughout the body. In two pivotal phase 2 studies, which initially enrolled 37 patients, 32 patients entered a long-term extension phase. The data demonstrated that ongoing Soliris treatment for two years was associated with sustained inhibition of complement-mediated TMA, as indicated by a maintained increase in platelet count, and sustained improvement in renal function and TMA event-free status.1,2 The data were presented today at Kidney Week 2012, the annual meeting of the American Society of Nephrology, ASN, in San Diego. Additionally, data presented in a poster session at ASN support early initiation of Soliris therapy regardless of the presence or absence of genetic mutations in patients with aHUS.

17:57 EDTALXNAlexion CEO sees slow sales uptake for Kanuma, Strensiq, Reuters says
In a Reuters interview following EU approval of the company's Strensiq and Kanuma treatments, Alexion CEO David Hallal said he expects a slow sales uptake for the two drugs, adding that boosting disease awareness and finding patients is a challenge. "It takes time to reach the patients and the physicians. When we launch, it's usually one patient at a time," said Hallal. The CEO also remarked that the company is targeting similar pricing between the U.S. and elsewhere. Reference Link
