  1. WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has submitted its response to the FDA's Notice of Opportunity for a Hearing ("NOOH") regarding the Agency's proposal to withdraw approval for Makena—also referred to as 17-OHPC—the only FDA-approved treatment, along with five generic versions, to reduce preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth.

    The submission of supporting documentation follows upon AMAG's October 14, 2020 request for a hearing and provides detail on the company's position in requesting a hearing, recognizing clinicians' decade-long use of this treatment and the public health implications of withdrawing approval. The response sets…

    WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has submitted its response to the FDA's Notice of Opportunity for a Hearing ("NOOH") regarding the Agency's proposal to withdraw approval for Makena—also referred to as 17-OHPC—the only FDA-approved treatment, along with five generic versions, to reduce preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth.

    The submission of supporting documentation follows upon AMAG's October 14, 2020 request for a hearing and provides detail on the company's position in requesting a hearing, recognizing clinicians' decade-long use of this treatment and the public health implications of withdrawing approval. The response sets out data, analyses, and information demonstrating why Makena should remain available as the only FDA-approved option for women in the U.S. who are at risk for preterm birth, including clinical study results that highlights the evidence of effectiveness of Makena among Black and other minority women.

    AMAG—and its new owner, Covis Pharma Group, a leading pharmaceutical company that has a track record of working collaboratively with FDA and is focused on providing therapeutic solutions for patients with life-threatening conditions and chronic illnesses—stand ready to discuss data-driven next steps to maintain Makena as an option for physicians and patients, including developing a new randomized, controlled trial and further evaluating real-world data.

    "We seek a hearing to ensure that higher risk women and their doctors retain access to the only safe and effective, FDA-approved treatment for preterm birth and remain committed to the science and clinical experience supporting the value of Makena for appropriate U.S. patients," said Covis CEO Michael Porter. "We stand ready to work collaboratively with the Agency to address methods of more fully understanding and maintaining this important treatment option for this high-risk underrepresented, principally minority patient population. Preterm birth is an increasing health issue in the U.S., with preterm birth rates significantly higher than in other developed countries. We believe that a thorough review of the benefits of Makena, particularly among at-risk, disadvantaged communities, is required."

    Nearly a year after the divided Advisory Committee meeting and without an opportunity to discuss options for further data generation, FDA sent a NOOH to AMAG and generic manufacturers of 17-OHPC. At the Advisory Committee meeting, experts agreed that additional data would be useful in clarifying benefit or defining the population in whom the drug may provide the most benefit. AMAG agrees that additional data would be helpful and had hoped to discuss several possible avenues with FDA.

    AMAG, and its new owner Covis, remain committed to conducting a further study of 17-OHPC. As described in the submission response, possible additional studies include: (1) a retrospective study using secondary real-world data sources, including electronic health record databases and claims databases; and (2) a prospective, primary data collection study with selected hospitals and healthcare networks, such as the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network as well as non-academic sites. AMAG is also open to discussing another randomized clinical trial, better focused on the most at-risk, principally minority patient populations.

    A summary of key arguments that warrant discussion at a public forum can be found in the full copy of the submission available here. While the FDA reviews the submission of supporting documentation, Makena remains approved and available and the product label remains unchanged.

The combined organization will operate as part of the Covis Pharma Group and will be led by Covis CEO Michael Porter.

    The addition of AMAG's category leading treatments and development-stage assets in women's health and hematology/oncology supports the execution of Covis' strategic vision to enhance the company's ability to impact the lives of patients by expanding its portfolio of 'best in class' products in attractive…

    LUXEMBOURG and ZUG, Switzerland, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Covis Group S.à r.l. ("Covis") today announced the completion of its acquisition of AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMAG) through the successful tender offer for all of the outstanding shares of common stock of AMAG at $13.75 per share in cash and subsequent merger. The combined organization will operate as part of the Covis Pharma Group and will be led by Covis CEO Michael Porter.

    The addition of AMAG's category leading treatments and development-stage assets in women's health and hematology/oncology supports the execution of Covis' strategic vision to enhance the company's ability to impact the lives of patients by expanding its portfolio of 'best in class' products in attractive new therapeutic areas. In addition, Covis will be positioned to further support patients, building on its track record of efficient and effective management of therapeutic solutions.

    "The acquisition of AMAG represents a key milestone in Covis' efforts to fulfill our strategic vision to become a leading global specialty pharma company for life threatening and chronic illnesses for both commercial and development stage assets," said Michael Porter, CEO of Covis. "AMAG's expertise and key products—Feraheme®, Makena® and Ciraparantag—add tremendous value to Covis as we execute our mandate of expanding patient access to much needed therapies. We will continue to put patients' interests first and look forward to collaborating with the FDA to ensure that Makena continues to be available as an option for appropriate patients. More than ever, we are positioned to continue growth of our therapeutic portfolio globally and look forward to further enhancing our capabilities and offerings.  We're excited to work with our designated transition teams to execute on our integration plans and move forward as a stronger, unified organization."

    The tender offer expired at 12:00 a.m., Eastern Time, on November 12, 2020 (one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on November 12, 2020).  The condition to the tender offer that a majority of the outstanding shares of AMAG's common stock be validly tendered and not withdrawn was satisfied and, accordingly, all such validly tendered shares were accepted for payment.  Following the consummation of the tender offer, Covis Mergerco Inc. merged with and into AMAG pursuant to Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware. As a result of the merger, each share of AMAG that was not validly tendered in the tender offer (other than shares held by any stockholder of AMAG who properly demanded appraisal of such shares under the applicable provisions of Delaware law) was cancelled and converted into the right to receive $13.75 per share in cash, and AMAG became an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Covis. Shares of AMAG will cease to be traded on NASDAQ.

    Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC acted as exclusive financial advisor, and Goodwin Procter LLP acted as legal advisor to AMAG.  Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison LLP acted as legal advisor to Covis. Financing for this transaction has been provided by Capital One, N.A. and investment funds and accounts managed by HPS Investment Partners, LLC.
