    Allergan wins FDA approval for use of Vraylar in maintenance treatment of schizophrenia

    Allergan plc said Monday it has won U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for use of Vraylar in the maintenance treatment of schizophrenia. The FDA approved the company's supplemental new drug application for the substance, an antipsychotic that is already approved for the acute treatment of adult patients with manic or mixed episodes stemming from bipolar I disorder and for the treatment of schizophrenia. "Schizophrenia is one of the most challenging mental health disorders to manage -- particularly due to the complexity of patient symptoms, varying response to treatment and high rates of relapse," said Dr. Herbert Meltzer, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine. "The goal of clinicians is to minimize relapses, which can cause significant personal distress, and can often have serious implications for a patient's health." Up to 70% of patients can experience relapse within one year of treatment without maintenance treatment, he said. Schizophrenia affects about 2.4 million American adults and symptoms include hallucinations, delusions, thought disorders and movement disorders. Allergan shares were flat premarket, but have fallen 18% in 2017, while the S&P 500 has gained 15%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

    Allergan stock drops 5% after judge decides against company on key dry eye product

    Allergan PLC shares dropped 5% in extremely heavy afternoon trade Monday after a Texas district court judge ruled against the company in a patent lawsuit regarding the company's key billion-dollar dry eye medication Restasis. "There is no doubt that Allergan has invented a useful and successful pharmaceutical product. It has been richly rewarded for that invention," Judge William Bryson said, adding, "the Court has concluded that Allergan is not entitled to renewed patent rights for Restasis in the form of a second wave of patent protection." Allergan had previously made an unorthodox agreement with a New York state-based American Indian tribe in order to protect Restasis patents from challenges made through the U.S. Patent and Trade Office's inter partes review process, which is separate from any court decisions. The company, which has been widely criticized for the move, including by lawmakers, has said that an district court ruling against it would allow a generic Restasis to "enter the market many years in advance of the listed patent expiry dates," or 2024. Restasis, which is used for eye inflammation, brought in $1.4 billion in revenue last year, second only to Allergan's top-selling Botox. Allergan shares have dropped 20.7% over the last three months, compared with a 3.9% rise in the S&P 500 .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
