Progenics and Valeant Spike On Relistor Approval

Let’s start with Progenics Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:PGNX), which has gained 23.41% on Wednesday after the FDA approved an oral formulation of RELISTOR (methylnaltrexone bromide) for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation in adults with chronic non-cancer pain. Also benefiting from the news is exclusive licensee Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl Inc (NYSE:VRX), which is up by more than 4.6% today. The company expects to start marketing the drug in the U.S some time in the third quarter of the year. Furthermore, another piece of news helping Valeant was the FDA’s approval of its psoriosis treatment Brodalumab, on the condition that it takes measures to mitigate suicide risk through effective labeling and development of a suicide risk management plan.
