    ROCKVILLE, Md., May 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUPN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases, today announced that its recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved treatment Qelbree (viloxazine extended-release capsules) for the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in pediatric patients 6 to 17 years of age, is now available. For more information on access, ways to save and additional patient support services, visit: https://www.qelbree.com/.

    "The availability of Qelbree™ has helped to create a shift in the way providers can approach treatment for children and teens with ADHD," said Ann Childress, M.D, psychiatrist with a subspecialty in child and adolescent psychiatry, Clinical Researcher, and President of the Center for Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine in Las Vegas. "Many of my patients and their caregivers seek non-stimulant options as we work together to develop a treatment regimen. Having access to a once-daily capsule – that can even be sprinkled on food – with proven long-acting efficacy, as well as early onset of improvement, is sure to make an impact on children and teens looking for new treatment options to manage their ADHD."

    Supernus has developed a robust patient access program to support those who qualify for treatment. In addition to a co-pay assistance program, the Company has launched a sampling program and full support hub. Supernus is committed to helping patients access Qelbree.

    "At Supernus, we continue to be focused on advancing treatments across the CNS landscape, including the treatment of ADHD," said Jack A. Khattar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Supernus Pharmaceuticals. "As a non-controlled substance that has a unique profile of proven efficacy, safety, and tolerability, Qelbree provides patients living with ADHD a novel treatment option like no other ADHD medication. We look forward to being able to support the ADHD community as we officially launch Qelbree in the market alongside our patient support programs to improve access to this important treatment option."

    In December 2020, the Company announced positive results from a Phase III trial in adult patients with ADHD and plans to submit a supplemental New Drug Application to the FDA for Qelbree in adults in the third quarter of 2021.

    IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

    Qelbree may increase suicidal thoughts and actions in some children with ADHD, especially within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed. Pay close attention to any new or sudden changes in mood, behavior, thoughts, and feelings. Call your child's doctor right away if there are any new or sudden changes, or if there is development of suicidal thoughts or actions. Qelbree should not be taken by patients that also take certain anti-depression medicines, especially those called a monoamine oxidase inhibitor or MAOI, or certain asthma medicines.

    Please see full Prescribing Information, including Boxed Warning, for Qelbree.

    ROCKVILLE, Md., May 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Supernus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SUPN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing products for the treatment of central nervous system (CNS) diseases, today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2021, and associated Company developments.

    "The approval of Qelbree provides pediatric patients living with ADHD a therapy with proven efficacy and a tolerable safety profile, and that is not a controlled substance," said Jack Khattar, President and CEO of Supernus Pharmaceuticals. "Our Qelbree commercial launch activities are ongoing and include engagement with both physicians and patient groups who have expressed great interest in this unique new alternative for the treatment of ADHD."

    Net Product Sales

    First quarter 2021 net product sales were $128.4 million, 39% higher than the same period in 2020.

    Qelbree Launch Update

    • In April 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Qelbree for the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in pediatric patients 6 to 17 years of age. The Company plans to make Qelbree available in the U.S. during the second quarter of 2021.
    • Supernus will conduct post-marketing commitment studies, including a new study of Qelbree in preschool aged children with ADHD, 4 to 5 years of age. The completion of these studies responds to a written request from the FDA and should therefore result in the FDA granting an additional 6 months of market exclusivity.

    Product Pipeline Update

    Qelbree (viloxazine, extended-release capsules) - Novel non-stimulant for the treatment of ADHD in adults

    • In December 2020, the Company announced positive results from a Phase III trial in adult patients with ADHD and plans to submit a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) to the FDA for Qelbree in adults in the third quarter of 2021.

    SPN-830 (apomorphine infusion pump) - Continuous treatment of motor fluctuations ("on-off" episodes) in PD

    • The company recently met with the FDA to discuss the path forward for resubmission of the SPN-830 NDA. The FDA provided additional clarity related to the contents of the November 2020 Refusal to File (RTF) letter and the requirements for resubmission. The Company now plans to resubmit the SPN-830 NDA in the second half of 2021.

    SPN-820 - Novel first-in-class activator of mTORC1

    • SPN-820 has advanced to a Phase II clinical program in treatment-resistant depression following the successful completion of a multiple-ascending dose (MAD) study in healthy volunteers. In the MAD study, SPN-820 exhibited a favorable safety and tolerability profile across a broad range of potentially therapeutic doses.
    • The Company expects to initiate a randomized Phase II clinical study in treatment-resistant depression by the end of 2021.

    Financial Highlights

    First quarter 2021 operating earnings were $13.2 million, as compared to $29.0 million in the first quarter 2020. In the first quarter of 2021, the Company recorded non-cash research and development expense of $15 million related to the equity investment in Navitor as a result of the accounting impact of the March 2021 Navitor corporate restructuring and non-cash contingent consideration expense of $1 million associated with the 2020 USWM acquisition. Operating earnings for the first quarter of 2021 included amortization of intangible assets expense of $6.0 million, compared to $1.3 million in the first quarter of 2020.

    First quarter 2021 net earnings and diluted earnings per share were $5.7 million and $0.11, respectively, as compared to $21.5 million, or $0.40 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

    As of March 31, 2021, the Company had $807.7 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, compared to $772.9 million as of December 31, 2020.
