Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Research Report

On June 27, 2013, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Alexion) announced that
Soliris (eculizumab), the Company's first-in-class terminal complement
inhibitor, has been granted an orphan drug designation by the US Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) for the treatment of neuromyelitis optica (NMO) - a
life-threatening, ultra-rare neurological disorder. Martin Mackay, Ph.D., EVP
and Global Head of R&D at Alexion, said, "This orphan drug designation is a
positive step toward understanding and meeting the needs of this underserved
patient population. In clinical trials to date, terminal complement inhibition
with Soliris appeared to significantly reduce the attack rate in patients with
severe, refractory relapsing NMO." According to Alexion, the Orphan drug
designation provides a drug developer with certain benefits and incentives
(including a period of marketing exclusivity) if regulatory approval is
received for the designated indication. The Full Research Report on Alexion
