Alkermes CEO sees 2019 as important year for late-stage pipeline
"Alkermes is defined by our commitment to making medicines that help address critical public health challenges, using our scientific insights to develop medicines that are designed with the real-world needs of patients in mind. Following the positive results of the ALKS 3831 ENLIGHTEN-2 pivotal study and the increasing traction of ARISTADA in the market, we continue to establish our emerging leadership position in the treatment of schizophrenia. 2019 will be an important year for our late-stage pipeline highlighted by the planned submission of the ALKS 3831 New Drug Application and the regulatory review of the recently submitted New Drug Application for diroximel fumarate for multiple sclerosis, with expected action in the fourth quarter. As development activities surrounding our ALKS 4230 immuno-oncology program gain momentum, we expect to have our first indications of ALKS 4230's anti-tumor response activity this year, and we look forward to updating you on our progress," said Richard Pops, CEO of Alkermes.
