09:17 EDTSRPT'Female Viagra' approval seen as positive for Sarepta, BioMarin
The FDA's approval of the world's first drug designed to boost a woman's sexual desire is seen as boding well for companies awaiting critical decisions by the agency. FEMALE VIAGRA: The Food and Drug Administration yesterday approved flibanserin to treat acquired, generalized hypoactive sexual desire disorder in premenopausal women. The drug, which will be sold under the name "Addyi" and is commonly referred to as the "female Viagra," is the first FDA-approved treatment for sexual desire disorders in men or women, the agency prominently stated in its press release. HSDD is characterized by low sexual desire that causes marked distress or interpersonal difficulty and is not due to a co-existing medical or psychiatric condition, problems within the relationship, or the effects of a medication or other drug substance, the FDA explained. Addyi was approved with a risk evaluation and mitigation strategy as well as a Boxed Warning given the risk of severe hypotension and syncope in patients who drink alcohol during treatment. The drug is made by privately held Sprout Pharmaceuticals. ANALYST REACTION: Addyi's approval is "another sign of flexibility" by the FDA, especially for first-in-class therapies, Roth Capital analyst Debjit Chattopadhyay writes this morning in a note to investors. This bodes well for the approval of eteplirsen, drisapersen and Translarna, the analyst contends. Eteplirsen, designed by Sarepta Therapeutics (SRPT), and drisapersen, designed by BioMarin (BMRN), are experimental drugs being developed to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Translarna, designed by PTC Therapeutics (PTCT), is already being sold in Europe as a treatment for DMD and is awaiting approval from the FDA. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a form of muscular dystrophy affecting around 1 in 3,600 boys, which results in muscle degeneration and premature death. SAVING LIVES: While female sexual dysfunction is a clinical problem, eteplirsen is designed to save lives, Chattopadhyay points out. He has a Buy rating on Sarepta and noted his price target of $45 assumes accelerated approval for eteplirsen in the first quarter of 2016. Shares of the Massachusetts-based biopharmaceutical company closed yesterday at $35.69.
