    Regarding Baxdela from a smart SA poster
    " "What is the realistic market potential for Baxdela near-term and longer term?"
    Near-term, we can't expect to see very large sales. The market in ABSSSI has a lot of competitors, but Baxdela's drug stands out as extremely efficacious. I think we could see over $100m in US sales in the first year and with Europe coming online and an acceleration of sales, maybe 200m the next. Let me recap again what I see the benefits of Baxdela are:
    1) It does not inhibit cytochrome P450. Many drugs work with / inhibit this. This lack of drug-drug interactions is going to be a huge selling point for older patients who are likely on many different medications. These older patients are likely going to make up the vast majority of first-year sales.
    2) It does not have QT prolongation. Same point as (1).
    3) It's more efficacious in deep abscesses, or rather in highly acidic environments. That means it can kill the worst infections.
    4) It has great activity against methicilin-resistant gram-negative pathogens -- as an example, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Again, this is more critical with older patients. It has both gram-positive and full spectrum gram-negative activity, which means that patients don't need a full workup to get this drug -- docs need only believe that they have a bacterial infection. Which ABSSSI is. ("acute bacterial skin and skin structure infection")
    5) For later -- since it has more activity in more acidic environments, it will likely gain approval in cUTI (complicated urinary tract infections ) and cIAI (Complicated Intra-Abdominal Infection). "

    Launch and Grow New and Current Products: During fiscal year 2017, we launched four new dermatology products, including SebuDerm™, Ceramax™, Lasercyn™ Gel and Lasercyn™ Dermal Spray, bringing us to a total of eight dermatology products for the treatment of atopic and seborrheic dermatitis, scar management, surgical procedures, severe acne and “state of the art” skin repair technology. We also obtained three new FDA clearances, now totaling 16 overall. Our strong intellectual property portfolio consists of 63 issued patents and 33 patent applications pending.

    We plan to launch our new FDA approved product Loyon® (a skin descaler currently marketed in Europe) in the upcoming months and have a strong product pipeline of several product line improvements, including a line extension of Ceramax™. All in all, we believe this could possibly be our best product line of new FDA approved dermatology and skincare products yet, and we believe our innovation plan will help lead us to profitability.

    Just reviewing the partnered products and noted Trametinib is listed as an early stage candidate on the website. See for yourself...

    This is an approved melanoma drug for those with BRAF V600E mutations. I suppose this came over with the GSK-Novartis transaction.

    Since the drug is already approved, I wonder how fast this can go through clinical trials in Novartis' hands? Note the MW of the compound is >600...probably has poor PK.

    Ironic that the GRA program is not among the top 6 or next 12.

    Data is coming soon. Too bad we will miss the podium at the upcoming conference. Will the data support head-to-head against SGLT2 inhibitors in the market? Will there be weight loss? If this dataset supports H2H against SGLT2 inhibitors, that will be something. Would anyone care to hazard a guess at an appropriate deal structure for this novel mechanism?
