08:33 EDTZGNXZogenix reports positive development on U.S. District Court ruling
Zogenix commented on the order issued by the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts upholding its prior decision that imposing regulations to restrict access to Zohydro ER Extended-Release Capsules, CII, violates Constitutional law. The court's decision supports the importance of upholding the principle at the heart of this case, which is that the FDA is the only regulatory body that is authorized to determine the approval and access of medicines for all Americans. On October 25, 2013, the FDA approved Zohydro ER for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate, and today's decision preserves access for those in Massachusetts who may benefit from its medical attributes and sets a precedent for other states seeking to unjustly restrict access to Zohydro ER. Zogenix will continue to work to ensure patients have access to Zohydro ER in every state in a manner that is consistent with all extended-release opioids.

19:44 EDTZGNXZogenix receives FDA approval of new formulation of Zohydro ER
Zogenix announced that the U.S. FDA has approved a new formulation of Zohydro ER Extended-Release Capsules, CII, with BeadTek. BeadTek is a formulation technology designed to provide abuse-deterrent properties without changing the release properties of hydrocodone when Zohydro ER is used as intended. Concurrently, Zogenix has ongoing Human Abuse Liability studies, which will further characterize the abuse-deterrent properties of the new formulation. Zogenix intends to submit these data in the second half of 2015 to the FDA to support an amended product label, including abuse-deterrent claims consistent with the FDA's current draft Guidance for Industry, Abuse-Deterrent Opioids Evaluation and Labeling. BeadTek incorporates well-known pharmaceutical excipients that immediately form a viscous gel when crushed and dissolved in liquids or solvents. Zohydro ER is the only long-acting hydrocodone product administered every 12 hours, and the new formulation maintains the same efficacy and pharmacokinetic profile of the original formulation. Transition to Zohydro ER with BeadTek is expected to occur in the second quarter of 2015 for all prescribed strengths ranging from 10 mg to 50 mg, without disruption to patients currently on therapy.
