Halozyme Therapeutics Temporarily Suspends PEGPH20 Phase 2 Enrollment and Starbucks Slashes their Prices

Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: HALO) shares slumped on Friday, closing down 27.26% on about 20 million shares traded. The company announced that it would temporarily suspend enrollment in an ongoing Phase 2 trial of its PEGPH20 treatment of patients with pancreatic cancer. Halozyme said it would take "precautionary actions" in response to an independent data monitoring committee's suggestion on Thursday. The data monitoring committee "is assessing clinical data that indicates a possible difference in the thromboembolic event rate between the group of patients treated with PEGPH20, nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine versus the group of patients treated with nab-paclitaxel and gemcitabine without PEGPH20," according to Halozyme's statement.

Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, researches, develops, and commercializes human enzymes. Its research focuses on human enzymes that transiently modify tissue under the skin to facilitate the delivery of injected drugs and fluids, or to alter abnormal tissue structures for clinical benefit. The company’s products are based on the Enhanze technology, a patented human recombinant hyaluronidase enzyme that enables the subcutaneous delivery of injectable biologics, such as monoclonal antibodies and other therapeutic molecules, as well as small molecules and fluids.
