Division of Chiesi Farmaceutici SPA
Latest From CardioKine Inc.
Italian pharmaceutical company Chiesi is looking to buy up the remainder of Cornerstone Therapeutics, a company that already markets Chiesi’s products in the U.S. and is financially linked with the company.
Perhaps it was the fact that investors expected a US FDA rejection following the negative outcome of a September advisory committee meeting – or that Wall Street remained in shock, recovering from Hurricane Sandy – but shares of Cornerstone Therapeutics had only a somewhat mild reaction to regulators calling for more data before approving the company's experimental drug lixivaptan.
Shares of Cornerstone Therapeutics rose as high as 7% on 11 September after a US FDA drug reviewer said an argument could be made for approval of lixivaptan, an orally-active, selective vasopressin 2 receptor antagonist, as a treatment for hyponatremia associated with syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion, or SIADH, based on the currently available information, as long as the therapy is restricted to inpatient initiation.
