10:20 EDTCHTP, SHPGChelsea falls after FDA staff call droxidopa approval decision 'complex'
Shares of Chelsea Therapeutics (CHTP) are sharply lower in early trading after the FDA posted briefing documents related to a review of a resubmission for the company's droxidopa drug. The documents are related to a cardiovascular and renal drug advisory committee meeting scheduled for January 14. WHAT'S NEW: Chelsea Therapeutics is seeking approval of droxidopa for “the treatment of symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension in patients with primary autonomic failure, which includes Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple System Atrophy and Pure Autonomic Failure, as well as to treat two other conditions. In the document, FDA staff wrote that the decision whether or not to approve droxidopa is "complex," noting that strong evidence from one clinical trial indicates that droxidopa confers "at least one week of symptomatic benefit," but also that there has been no durable effect, i.e., more than 1 week, demonstrated for droxidopa. The document also notes that Shire (SHPG), the sponsor of midodrine, an approved drug for symptomatic orthostatic hypotension, is currently being tasked with completing 2 adequate and well controlled trials to demonstrate that drug’s symptomatic benefit. The document also states that there were "numerous concerning safety findings" related to droxidopa. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, shares of Chelsea Therapeutics are down over 29% to $2.50.
