medicines company (MDCO) Key Developments

The Medicines Company Announces FDA Approval of RAPLIXA™

The Medicines Company announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved RAPLIXA™ (fibrin sealant) and the RaplixaSpray™ device to provide adjunctive hemostasis for mild to moderate bleeding in adults undergoing surgery when control of bleeding by standard surgical techniques (such as suture, ligature and cautery) is ineffective or impractical. According to IMS data, it is estimated that every year, approximately 2.6 – 3 million surgical procedures require the use of a topical hemostat product in the U.S. RAPLIXA requires no thawing, reconstitution, or mixing and can be applied either directly from the vial or with the RaplixaSpray™ device. The device is a low-pressure spray applicator designed to deliver RAPLIXA to larger bleeding surfaces in difficult to reach areas. The approval of RAPLIXA was based on one large Phase 3, multicenter clinical trial involving 721 patients in four countries. This trial demonstrated that RAPLIXA used in conjunction with an absorbable gelatin sponge was superior in achieving hemostasis as compared to treatment with sponge alone when used as an adjunct to hemostasis in patients undergoing vascular, hepatic, spinal, and soft tissue surgery. Adverse events were generally similar between treatment groups and consistent with those observed in patients undergoing surgery.

The Medicines Company Announces FDA Approval of IONSYS for the Management of Acute Post-Operative Pain for Adult Patients in the Hospital

The Medicines Company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved IONSYS (fentanyl iontophoretic transdermal system), the first needle-free, patient-controlled, pre-programmed fentanyl delivery system, for the short-term management of acute post-operative pain in adult patients requiring opioid analgesia in the hospital. IONSYS offers patients recovering from surgery in the hospital control over their analgesic dosing by pushing a button to dispense fentany transdermally via an imperceptible electrical current as needed for pain. IONSYS will only be administered to patients in hospitals enrolled in the IONSYS Risk Evaluation Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program and is not intended for home use. The goal of the IONSYS REMS is to mitigate the risk of respiratory depression resulting from accidental exposure to persons for whom it is not prescribed.

The Medicines Company Proposes to Approve Amendment to its Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation

The Medicines Company proposed to approve amendment to its third amended and restated certificate of incorporation, as amended to date, to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 125,000,000 to 187,500,000 at its AGM to be held on May 28, 2015.
