Acceleron Pharma, Inc. Research Report

On December 18, 2013, Acceleron Pharma, Inc. (Acceleron) announced that Celgene, its collaboration partner, has initiated a phase 2 clinical trial of sotatercept in patients with end stage renal disease on hemodialysis. Acceleron reported that Sotatercept is a novel and first-in-class activin type IIA receptor (ActRIIA) fusion protein that acts during late-stage erythropoiesis (red blood cell production) to increase the production of mature red blood cells into circulation. The Company stated that it will receive a $7 million milestone payment from Celgene for the achievement of this event and is also eligible to receive future development, regulatory, and commercial milestones of up to $360 million for the sotatercept program. Matthew Sherman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at Acceleron, said, "We believe that the distinct profile of sotatercept could benefit many patients, including those who have end stage renal disease, the most advanced stage of chronic kidney disease. We look forward to the ongoing development of this promising protein therapeutic candidate, which is also being studied in phase 2 trials in several rare hematologic diseases, including beta-thalassemia and myelodysplastic syndromes."
