Alexion CEO says 'delivered another record performance' in Q3
"With consistent and strong execution, we have delivered another record performance in the third quarter, building on our momentum from the first half of 2019. Our teams continued to demonstrate launch excellence across the globe, with very rapid starts to the German and Japanese ULTOMIRIS PNH launches, where conversion is progressing ahead of the best-in-class U.S. launch at the same time points, as well as a strong start to the SOLIRIS NMOSD launch in the U.S.," said Ludwig Hantson, Ph.D., CEO of Alexion. "We also continued to expand our portfolio with two additional approvals - ULTOMIRIS for atypical HUS in the U.S. and SOLIRIS for NMOSD in the EU - and three new business development transactions that further diversify our pipeline, including an agreement to acquire Achillion. By continuing to deliver on the ambitious transformation plan we laid out two-and-a-half years ago, we have successfully established a strong foundation for the future and look forward to building on this progress as we advance our mission of delivering life-changing therapies to people with rare diseases."
