CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
To help local students attain their STEM education goals, while developing a workforce that is as diverse as the communities it serves, ComEd today announced it will again provide scholarships to northern Illinois students pursuing engineering degrees that fill the tuition gap not covered by financial aid. Eight new students make up the ComEd Scholars program’s newest class of recipients that attend the Illinois Institute of Technology (Illinois Tech) and the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC).

“ComEd lifts up the communities it serves and the first step in that process is helping young people further their education and pursue their dreams,” said Michelle Blaise, ComEd’s senior vice president of technical services and an Illinois Tech mechanical engineering alumna. “This year in particular, students and their families face economic challenges.

Prospective recipients must then submit a personal statement, financial-aid application and school transcripts.

  • Daniel Arechiga – a second-year student from Lockport, Ill.,pursuing a degree in electrical engineering at Illinois Tech.
  • Neil Young – a second-year student from Freeport, Ill.,pursuing a degree in mechanical engineering at Illinois Tech.

“We thank ComEd for once again making an investment in our students at Illinois Tech,” said Illinois Tech President Alan W. Cramb. “Providing our students with access to a world-class STEM education is central to Illinois Tech’s mission and these scholarships will allow them to focus on their studies and post-graduate careers on building the technological innovations of tomorrow.”

Successful 1031 DST Investment Completed for Mother-Daughter Duo

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kay Properties today announced the completion of a 1031 DST investment for a mother-daughter duo. The pair sold a vacation rental property they owned for many years. They were eager to exit the highly management-intensive environment of operating vacation rentals and enter into a more passive, diversified investment structure such as the DST. They utilized the Kay Properties 1031 DST marketplace at www.kpi1031.com to invest in a prepackaged multifamily DST portfolio.

The Delaware Statutory Trust exchange investment was completed by Kay Properties and Investments team members Chay Lapin, Senior Vice President, and Matt McFarland, Vice President.

Chay Lapin, Senior Vice President, stated, “We are grateful for the opportunity to help another family complete a 1031 DST exchange. They now are involved in a more passive investment environment to better suit their lifestyle. Our clients approached us with a very high level of sophistication of buying and selling their own real estate over many years. When considering all their options, they decided that the Delaware Statutory Trust structure was best suited for their needs.”

Lapin continued, “Through on and off correspondence for over a year and a half, the clients were able to complete their own due diligence on DSTs. They spent time with us learning about how DSTs could potentially help them all while utilizing the DST investment marketplace at www.kpi1031.com/marketplace.”

Matt McFarland, Vice President at Kay Properties, stated, “This particular client was able to exchange out of a management-intensive vacation rental. The 1031 up leg was a multifamily DST offering with multiple properties totaling over 900 units. Needless to say, this $100M+ multifamily portfolio is an investment that would have been out of reach to many investors if it weren’t for the DST structure.”

BioCryst Announces FDA Approval of ORLADEYO™ (berotralstat), First Oral, Once-daily Therapy to Prevent Attacks in Hereditary Angioedema Patients

ORLADEYO approved for adult and pediatric patients


12 years and older



RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., Dec. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BioCryst Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Nasdaq: BCRX) today announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved oral, once-daily ORLADEYO™ (berotralstat) for prophylaxis to prevent attacks of hereditary angioedema (HAE) in adults and pediatric patients 12 years and older.

“ORLADEYO offers people with HAE and their physicians the first orally administered non-steroidal option for preventing HAE attacks and represents an important and welcome step in making more treatment options available to physicians and patients,” said Anthony J. Castaldo, president and chief executive officer of the US Hereditary Angioedema Association (HAEA). 

In the pivotal Phase 3 APeX-2 trial, ORLADEYO significantly reduced attacks at 24 weeks, and this reduction was sustained through 48 weeks. HAE patients who completed 48 weeks of treatment (150 mg) saw reductions in their HAE attack rates, from a mean of 2.9 attacks per month at baseline to a mean of 1.0 attacks per month after 48 weeks of therapy. In the long-term open label APeX-S trial, patients completing 48 weeks of therapy (150 mg) had a mean attack rate of 0.8 attacks per month.

ORLADEYO was safe and well tolerated in both trials. The most frequently reported adverse reactions in patients receiving ORLADEYO compared with placebo were gastrointestinal reactions. These reactions generally occurred early after initiation of treatment with ORLADEYO, became less frequent with time and typically self-resolved.

“Patients and physicians acknowledge that HAE treatments can add a burden to patients’ lives.  As an oral, once-daily option, ORLADEYO can provide significant attack reduction and lessen the burden associated with injections and infusions,” said Marc Riedl, M.D., professor of medicine and clinical director, U.S. Hereditary Angioedema Association Center at the University of California, San Diego, and an investigator in the APeX-2 trial.

“With this new treatment option, physicians and patients can continue to have collaborative discussions to choose the treatment that meets each patient’s needs, life circumstances and preferences,” Riedl added.

HAE patients note a significant treatment burden associated with existing prophylactic therapy. In addition to reducing HAE attack rate, data from APeX-2 show that patients reported meaningful improvements in both quality of life and overall patient-reported satisfaction, and significant reductions in their monthly use of standard of care on-demand medicine, while taking oral, once-daily ORLADEYO (150 mg).2,3

“The FDA approval of ORLADEYO fulfills a promise BioCryst made to HAE patients that we were committed to helping them achieve the dream of an oral, once-daily medicine to prevent and reduce the burden of their attacks,” said Jon Stonehouse, president and chief executive officer of BioCryst.

“Thank you to the HAE patients who participated in our clinical trials, to the investigators around the world who conducted these trials, to the HAEA for their patient advocacy and to our employees who never forgot that patients were waiting. We will stay focused on enabling access and providing personalized support to HAE patients and physicians,” Stonehouse added.

Commitment to Patient Access

BioCryst is committed to supporting HAE patients taking ORLADEYO through a new program designed to streamline access to therapy. Through EMPOWER Patient Services, each HAE patient and their healthcare provider will have a single point of contact for access to ORLADEYO. A dedicated care coordinator will support access for each patient with comprehensive financial support tools and reimbursement support.

EMPOWER Patients Services is administered by Optime Care Inc., the exclusive specialty pharmacy provider for ORLADEYO. Physicians can begin writing prescriptions for ORLADEYO immediately, with direct to patient shipments from Optime Care expected to begin by the end of December 2020.

ORLADEYO

(berotralstat)

ORLADEYO™ (berotralstat) is the first and only oral therapy designed specifically to prevent attacks of hereditary angioedema (HAE) in adults and pediatric patients 12 years and older.  One capsule of ORLADEYO per day works to prevent HAE attacks by decreasing the activity of plasma kallikrein.

U.S. Indication and Important Safety Information

INDICATION

ORLADEYO™ (berotralstat) is a plasma kallikrein inhibitor indicated for prophylaxis to prevent attacks of hereditary angioedema (HAE) in adults and pediatric patients 12 years and older.

Limitations of use

The safety and effectiveness of ORLADEYO for the treatment of acute HAE attacks have not been established. ORLADEYO should not be used for the treatment of acute HAE attacks. Additional doses or dosages of ORLADEYO higher than 150 mg once daily are not recommended due to the potential for QT prolongation.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

An increase in QT prolongation was observed at dosages higher than the recommended 150 mg once-daily dosage and was concentration dependent.

The most common adverse reactions (≥10% and higher than placebo) in patients receiving ORLADEYO were abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, back pain, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

A reduced dosage of 110 mg taken orally once daily with food is recommended in patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh B or C) and in patients taking chronically administered P-glycoprotein (P-gp) or breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) inhibitors (eg, cyclosporine).

Berotralstat is a substrate of P-gp and BCRP. P-gp inducers (eg, rifampin, St. John’s wort) may decrease berotralstat plasma concentration, leading to reduced efficacy of ORLADEYO. The use of P-gp inducers is not recommended with ORLADEYO.

ORLADEYO at a dose of 150 mg is a moderate inhibitor of CYP2D6 and CYP3A4. For concomitant medications with a narrow therapeutic index that are predominantly metabolized by CYP2D6 or CYP3A4, appropriate monitoring and dose titration is recommended. ORLADEYO at a dose of 300 mg is a P-gp inhibitor. Appropriate monitoring and dose titration is recommended for P-gp substrates (eg, digoxin) when coadministering with ORLADEYO.

The safety and effectiveness of ORLADEYO in pediatric patients <12 years of age have not been established.

There are insufficient data available to inform drug-related risks with ORLADEYO use in pregnancy. There are no data on the presence of berotralstat in human milk, its effects on the breastfed infant, or its effects on milk production.
