08:09 EDTRTRXRetrophin receives EU ODD for sparsentan
Retrophin announced that the European Commission, or EC, has granted sparsentan orphan drug designation for the treatment of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, or FSGS. Retrophin previously announced in January 2015 that sparsentan received orphan drug designation from the FDA for the treatment of FSGS. Sparsentan is the company's investigational therapeutic agent which acts as both a potent angiotensin receptor blocker, as well as a selective endothelin receptor antagonist, and is currently being evaluated in the Phase 2 DUET trial in FSGS patients. FSGS is a widely recognized cause of end-stage renal disease and there are no approved pharmacologic treatments currently available in the United States or Europe.

18:40 EDTRTRXAllergan CEO says some peers 'deserve' pricing scrutiny, Bloomberg reports
In a Bloomberg TV interview Tuesday, Allergan (AGN) CEO Brent Saunders said certain drugmakers "deserve" recent scrutiny over drug price hikes. "There are a few companies that were very aggressive and perhaps took it too far, and deserve the attention they are getting. I think it's good. Transparency helps solve some of these issues," said the CEO. Asked whether he would be interested in acquiring embattled Valeant (VRX), Saunders said, "The things we look to buy are really first-in-class drugs, growth assets. There are a few of those in Valeant but there are also a lot of older medicines." Other companies that have received attention on the issue include Retrophin (RTRX), Pfizer's (PFE) Hospira, and Mallinckrodt (MNK). Reference Link
