biomarin pharmaceutical inc (BM8) Key Developments

Biomarin Pharmaceutical Inc. Launches kNOWyourDuchenne, Comprehensive Program for Patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy to Understand the Genetic Mutation

BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. announced the introduction of kNOWyourDuchenne, a program to help families and physicians obtain and interpret genetic testing for patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This novel program will identify specific genetic mutations leading to Duchenne, which may help guide clinicians and caregivers to potential treatments in development. Interpretation of the test will be performed by an independent lab director. Currently, genetic test results may not fully inform families or physicians of what potential treatments a child might be eligible for on the basis of that child's mutation. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood, affecting approximately 1 in every 3,500 live male births. BioMarin will provide genetic interpretation and testing services through kNOWyourDuchenne to patients and families at no cost throughout the duration of the program. kNOWyourDuchenne is accessible to eligible Duchenne patients. There are no treatments available in the US to target the genetic basis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Potential new therapies that target the cause of the disease are being studied. Patients, families, and physicians need to know the specific genetic mutation and understand what potential targeted therapy might address the underlying genetic cause of the disease. BioMarin is developing new treatments to target the underlying genetic cause of Duchenne, which would require a genetic test to determine if a patient might benefit from a treatment.

BioMarin Sells PARP Inhibitor to Medivation for $570 Million

Medivation has bought itself a global license to BioMarin's talazoparibin in a deal worth $570 million. Talazoparibin is a highly-potent, orally-available PARP inhibitor currently in a Phase III study for the treatment of patients with deleterious germline BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 mutations and locally advanced and/or metastatic breast cancer. Under the terms of the deal, Medivation will pay BioMarin $410 million upfront, up to an additional $160 million upon the achievement of regulatory, and sales-based milestones and mid-single digit royalties for the drug, and assumes responsibility for all development for all indication.

BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. Receives Rare Pediatric Disease Designation from FDA for Drisapersen for the Potential Treatment of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted rare pediatric disease designation for drisapersen, a potential treatment for patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) who are amenable to exon 51 skipping treatment. The FDA has previously granted drisapersen Orphan and Fast Track Status, Breakthrough Therapy Designation, as well as Priority Review status, which is designated to drugs that offer major advances in treatment, or provide a treatment where no adequate therapy exists.
