09:02 EDTBAXBaxter to acquire Chatham Therapeutics
Baxter International and Chatham Therapeutics announced that Baxter has agreed to acquire all of Chatham’s outstanding membership interests. As a result of the transaction, Baxter will acquire Chatham’s developmental gene therapy programs directed toward the development and commercialization of treatments for hemophilia. Under the terms of the agreement, Baxter will make an initial payment of $70M to acquire all of the outstanding membership interests of Chatham. Baxter may make additional payments in the future based on specified development, regulatory and commercial milestones. Baxter will continue the ongoing Phase I/II open-label clinical trial to assess the safety and optimal dosing schedule of BAX 335, an investigational FIX gene therapy treatment for hemophilia B. The BNP technology provides a mechanism for the patient's own liver to begin producing FIX following a single dose of the genetically engineered treatment. The design of the vector allows for more targeted delivery of the FIX therapeutic “cargo” into the natural site of FIX synthesis. This may permit effective therapy with low quantities of the vector. The Phase I/II clinical trial is proceeding as expected and aims to enroll up to 16 hemophilia B patients. Following the acquisition, Chatham will maintain its licensing and development relationship with Asklepios BioPharmaceutical on the development of novel hemophilia therapeutic gene therapy candidates using the Biological Nano Particle platform. AskBio is involved with the development of its proprietary BNPTM gene-delivery platform technology for therapeutics targeting diseases in the heart, CNS, muscle, ocular and liver tissues.

09:01 EDTBAXBaxter announces FDA approval for RIXUBIS
(BAX) announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved RIXUBIS for routine prophylactic treatment, control and prevention of bleeding episodes, and perioperative management in children with hemophilia B. RIXUBIS was the first recombinant factor IX approved for routine prophylaxis and control of bleeding episodes in the U.S. for adults living with this chronic condition. The approval is based on the results of a clinical trial investigating the efficacy and safety of RIXUBIS among 23 previously-treated male patients less than 12 years of age with severe or moderately severe hemophilia B. There were no reports of inhibitor development, no severe allergic reactions, and no thrombotic or treatment-related adverse events among the study participants. Baxter’s application for marketing approval for RIXUBIS for adults and pediatric patients is currently under review in the EU, with a regulatory decision expected later this year. The treatment also recently gained regulatory approval in Australia.
