Encouraging Phase 2 results for Alexion's asfotase alfa

Alexion Phharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALXN) presented data from two Phase 2 studies of asfotase alfa earlier today at the European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology Meeting in Dublin, Ireland. Both studies evaluated the safety and efficacy of asfotase alfa in pediatric patients with hypophosphatasia (HPP), an ultra-rare genetic metabolic disease. HPP is characterized by defective bone mineralization that can lead to destruction and deformity of bones, profound muscle weakness, seizure, respiratory failure and premature death.
In an 11-patient study involving infants and young children with HPP, subjects treated with asfotase alfa for up to three years experienced sustained improvements in growth and physical function.
In a 13-patient study involving children aged 5-12, subjects treated with asfotase alfa experienced significant gains in height and rapid and sustained improvements in strength, agility and physical function.
Asotase alfa is a targeted enzyme replacement therapy designed to address the underlying cause of HPP by restoring the defective metabolic process.
Alexion initiated the rolling submission of a BLA to the FDA in April 2014. The European Medicines Agency validated the company's MAA and granted accelerated assessment in July 2014.
tanked? what do you consider tanked? this has gone how 40's to low 40 and back to mid 40's. its doing very good.. for me it is,. still see it as a take over target. its cheap
holding yesterdays profits now is a very good sign to see too. we were down .70 cents earlier trading with very heavy volume here. out of the 30's shortly anyone else think?
we are down going into earnings fow few days trading.never a great sign. earnings disappointment could take this into the the 32 range. it would be a buying opportunity but i recently purchased here. timing is everything. love to see a big bang here. where are you getting this 38 39?
will PAY beat expectations? or has R & D cut into profits? this may or may not be the case. but the new products out in retail are great. and this helps with market share and down the road profits will be there. maybe not there now though i am not sure. but if you see the new pos cc machines, they are the best in the industry and its obvious the retailers see this and WANT this. GO PAY!!
what i see i like. but i see no volume here. i dont believe there is any take over here going to happen. it will go up on the up coming approvals
many many campuses have a bwld in their town. games began last night and there are games tonight too and all day tomorrow. place will be jammed to watch games , eat and drink. NFL is a week away. watch bwld rise back into the 150's
rumor that they wanted bmrn are over now, well guess they didnt want bmrn after all. still an acquisition usually makes other stocks in their sector go up in sympathy of that deal. so maybe we inch up a point today
America comes to bwld for their sports and these sports start in 2 weeks. place will be jammed until march madness is over. thats april. well even nba playoffs too, so june. we run up and split too.
do they really want to be acquired? an approval on anyone one of their drugs will get them there on their own. look at ilmn? they fought back roche take over and then ran up almost 90 points
