Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc is a biopharmaceutical company. It is engaged in serving patients with severe and ultra-rare disorders through the development and commercialization of life-transforming therapeutic products.

Alexion Pharmaceuticals specializes in the development and marketing of drugs for life-threatening medical conditions. The firm's blockbuster product is Soliris, the only approved therapy for paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, two ultra-rare blood disorders. Strensiq and Kanuma also target other ultra-rare metabolic diseases. Alexion's pipeline targets areas of high unmet need and complement-mediated disorders.

Guru Investment Theses on Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc

Spiros Segalas Commentary on Alexion Pharmaceuticals - Jul 10, 2017

In Health Care, Alexion Pharmaceuticals’ (NASDAQ:ALXN) weakness reflected investor concern about a change in senior management and disappointment that the Food and Drug Administration did not grant priority review for the company’s drug Soliris as a treatment for an ultra-rare form of myasthenia gravis. Soliris is already approved to treat two rare, genetic, and potentially life-threatening blood disorders. Other approved drugs target a disease caused by genetic mutations and an ultra-rare metabolic disorder.

Spiros Segalas on Alexion Pharmaceuticals - Aug 18, 2016



Many Health Care stocks that have been strong positive contributors to return over past quarters continued to face concerns about drug pricing. Biotechnology companies that sell innovative, high priced drugs lost ground, including Alexion Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:ALXN). We believe that the long-term fundamentals of the Fund’s biotechnology holdings remain intact, and that current valuations underestimate the potential of pipeline drugs.

Baron Funds Comments on Alexion Pharmaceuticals - May 23, 2016

Shares of Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) fell in the first quarter as a result of the significant correction in the biotech/pharma space. Alexion develops treatments for rare diseases. Its high foreign exchange exposure and high multiple also pressured the stock. Overall, we believe there have been no significant changes to the fundamentals of Alexion’s investment thesis (innovative, exceptionally well-managed company with unique assets and pricing power) and we retain conviction.

Baron Funds Comments on Alexion Pharmaceuticals - Feb 08, 2016

We also sold our Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) position in the third quarter to harvest a tax loss. We rebuilt our position this quarter. Alexion is the premier orphan disease company, whose lead product Soliris is a lifesaving medicine for both Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH) and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS). The company has expanded its efforts in orphan diseases (particularly ones with high unmet needs) with the acquisition of Strensiq for Hypophosphatasia (HPP) and Kanuma for Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency (LAL-D), both of which are approved or in the final stages of approval for launch worldwide.

Baron Funds Comments on Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc. - Nov 10, 2015

Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) is the premier orphan disease company, whose lead product Soliris is a lifesaving medicine for both Paroxysmal Nocturnal Hemoglobinuria (PNH) and Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS). The company has expanded its efforts in orphan diseases (particularly ones with high unmet needs) with the acquisition of Strensiq for HPP (Hypophosphatasia) and Kanuma for LAL-D (Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency), both of which are approved or in the final stages of approval for launch worldwide. The company recently announced the delay of Strensiq approval by the FDA for manufacturing related issues. With greater uncertainty surrounding the approval of Strensiq, and overall sentiment on the biotech industry souring, we reduced our exposure to the industry and sold our position in Alexion.

Baron Funds Comments on Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc. - Aug 19, 2015

Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) is a biopharmaceutical company that pioneered the “orphan disease” space by focusing on delivering life-transforming treatments for patients with devastating (life threatening) and ultra-rare (or orphan) diseases. Alexion is a leader in disease education and diagnostic initiatives to ensure that patients for its drugs are rapidly and accurately diagnosed. We believe Alexion’s first commercial drug, known as Soliris, which is used to treat paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (called PNH) and atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (referred to as aHUS), continues to possess a large global growth opportunity. Alexion has a pipeline of additional rare-disease treatments, and recently acquired Synageva, a company with two additional drugs for treating rare and devastating metabolic diseases, as well as a pipeline of other compounds, giving the company what we believe to be the most robust rare disease pipeline in the biotech industry.

Arbutus Licenses LNP Delivery Technology to Alexion for Use in Single Messenger RNA Product Candidate

Agreement Calls for Upfront and Potential Milestone Payments of Over $80 Million Plus Royalties
VANCOUVER, British Columbia and DOYLESTOWN, Pa., March 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Arbutus Biopharma Corporation (NASDAQ:ABUS), an industry-leading therapeutic solutions company focused on developing a cure for chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, today announced it has licensed to Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALXN) its proprietary lipid nanoparticle (LNP) technology for exclusive use in one of Alexion’s rare disease programs. This transaction enables Alexion to address delivery for therapeutic application of messenger RNA (mRNA) and rapidly enter clinical development with its mRNA product candidate. 
Under the terms of the license agreement, Alexion will pay Arbutus $7.5 million upfront, and payments of up to $75 million for achievement of development, regulatory, and commercial milestones, as well as single digit royalties. In addition, Arbutus will conduct technology development and provide manufacturing and regulatory support for the rapid advancement of Alexion’s mRNA product candidate."This agreement validates our leadership position in LNP technology and underscores the value of this platform in enabling RNA therapeutics. We are excited to be working with Alexion to advance a treatment for rare disease," said Dr. Mark J. Murray, Arbutus’ President and CEO. "Our core focus as a company remains the cure of HBV.  This transaction with Alexion illustrates the value of our LNP platform, which has broad potential to deliver mRNA and gene editing therapeutics. We are receiving significant interest from companies that require access to our LNP platform to enable their own development programs. Our LNP expertise and intellectual property will contribute both near and long term value to Arbutus.”About Arbutus BiopharmaArbutus Biopharma Corporation is a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to discovering, developing and commercializing a cure for patients suffering from chronic HBV infection.
