Acorda Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACOR) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

“The AMPYRA franchise remains strong, and we are reiterating our 2014 net sales guidance,” said Ron Cohen, M.D., Acorda Therapeutics’ President and CEO. “During the quarter, a fifth AMPYRA patent was issued and listed in the Orange Book. AMPYRA’s commercial success is supporting the development of an exciting pipeline of novel therapies. As previously announced, we are planning to initiate a Phase 3 trial for dalfampridine in post-stroke walking deficits in the second half of the year. While we were disappointed to receive a Complete Response Letter on PLUMIAZ™, we are working to address the FDA’s requests and refile our NDA. We were pleased to resume enrollment of our second clinical trial of GGF2 in chronic heart failure and to have completed the dose escalation phase of our Phase 1 rHIgM22 trial for remyelination in MS, with no serious or limiting adverse events.”
