    Cytokinetics shares drop 31% on late-stage ALS drug failure

    Cytokinetics Inc. shares dropped 31% in premarket trade Tuesday after the company said its lead product candidate failed to meet primary or secondary endpoints in a late-stage clinical trial. The drug, tirasemtiv, was being developed for the progressive neurodegenerative disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS); Cytokinetics said on Tuesday that it plans to suspend tirasemtiv's development. The company said it believes tirasemtiv's limitations "may be addressed with our next-generation fast skeletal muscle activator, CK-2127107," which is currently in mid-stage clinical trials, with phase 2 results expected next year. CK-212710, which is also called CK-107, is being developed to improve muscle function and physical performance for individuals with ALS, spinal muscular atrophy, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and for elderly adults with limited mobility. Cytokinetics shares have declined 11.6% over the last three months, compared with a 6.3% rise in the S&P 500 and a 8% rise in the Dow Jones Industrial Average .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Sarepta Therapeutics shares dive on safety issues in FDA database

    Sarepta Therapeutics Inc. shares declined as much as 8% in morning trade Friday on safety issues reported in the Food and Drug Administration's Adverse Events Reporting System (FAERS) for the company's controversial Exondys 51 therapy. The FAERS database showed 13 serious events connected to the Duchenne muscular dystrophy therapy, including three patient deaths. But "we believe these reported issues are generally expected outcomes of a progressive fatal disease like DMD and are not necessarily due to any mechanistic or safety flaws of the drug itself," said Leerink Partners analyst Joseph Schwartz. Company management told Leerink that the reported deaths happened in patients late in the disease, towards the end of their lives, according to Schwartz. FAERS, which the FDA recently made more accessible and user-friendly, "while insightful, requires a bit more diligence for full interpretation," Schwartz said. Sarepta did not immediately return MarketWatch's request for comment. Shares were most recently down 2.9%. Shares have surged 37.2% over the last three months, compared with a 4% rise in the S&P 500 .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Roche shares decline 1.6% on news that late-stage study missed primary endpoint

    Roche Holding AG shares declined 1.6% in heavy midday trade Friday after the company said its drug for vision loss did not meet the primary endpoint in a late-stage clinical trial. Further dosing for patients in the trial will be paused until results from another late-stage study are evaluated, Roche said. The therapy, lampalizumab, is intended to treat a progressive form of age-related macular degeneration called geographic atrophy, which is associated with visual impairment, often in both eyes. The condition, which affects more than five million people globally, has no approved therapies. Shares of the biotech Ophthotech Corporation plummeted 10.3% to $2.78 in heavy Friday trade. Ophthotech's macular degeneration therapy pegpleranib, tested in combination with other therapies, did not show benefit compared to the other therapies alone, the company said in mid-August. The company plans to move forward "with multiple ongoing or planned clinical programs in orphan retinal diseases," it said in August. Roche shares have declined 1% over the last three months and Ophthotech shares have risen 9%, compared with a 1% rise in the S&P 500 .
