Reports Q2 revenue $50.8M, consensus $45.67M. "In the second quarter of 2018, we saw strong commercial progress for Puma," said Alan H. Auerbach, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Puma. "We continued to grow NERLYNX sales in the United States, with net sales of NERLYNX rising approximately 41% from the 2018 first quarter. We were also pleased that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use adopted a positive opinion recommending marketing authorization for NERLYNX for the extended adjuvant treatment of adult patients with early stage hormone receptor positive HER2-overexpressed/amplified breast cancer and who are less than one year from the completion of prior adjuvant trastuzumab based therapy. The CHMP recommendation will now be reviewed by the European Commission, which has the authority to approve medicines for the European Union."
