Santarus' CEO Discusses Q1 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

In February, we began enrolling patients in our Phase IIIb clinical study to evaluate UCERIS as an add-on therapy to current 5-ASA drugs for the induction of remission of active ulcerative colitis. We expect to complete enrollment in this study in the first half of 2013.

The Phase III clinical study with RHUCIN for the treatment of acute attacks of hereditary angioedema is on track to be completed by the third quarter of this year. As a reminder the successful completion of this study will trigger a $10 million milestone payment to our development partner Pharming.

We are also on schedule with our Phase III clinical study with rifamycin SV MMX for the treatment of travelers’ diarrhea to complete enrollment in the third quarter of this year. And we expect the Phase I clinical study with our anti-VLA-1 antibody SAN-300 to be completed this year.

It’s been just over a year since we had the oral arguments in ZEGERID patent appeal. As we have indicated before the timing of the ruling is entirely at the discretion of the appealing court, but we plan to update shareholders when we receive the ruling.

As part of our ongoing efforts to increase the intellectual property protection on our product portfolio, we’ve recently worked with VeroScience to file a patent application for CYCLOSET under the U.S. PTO’s accelerated process. Under this process, the PTO generally completes its review in one year, and during this time the content of the application are confidential. We recently welcome two new directors to the Santarus board, Alessandro Della Chà and Dr. Matthew Strobeck. Alex is the Senior partner and a co-managing director of a boutique commercial law firm in Milan, Italy, and the director of Cosmo Pharmaceuticals, a key corporate partner.
