Sanofi Says FDA Oks Auvi-Q For Patients With Life-threatening Allergic Reactions

Sanofi (SNY) said the FDA has approved Auvi-Q (epinephrine injection, USP) for the emergency treatment of life-threatening allergic reactions in people who are at risk for or have a history of anaphylaxis. Auvi-Q is the first-and-only compact epinephrine auto-injector with audio and visual cues that guide patients and caregivers step-by-step through the injection process.

Sanofi US licensed the North American commercialization rights to Auvi-Q from Intelliject, Inc., which has retained commercialization rights for the rest of the world.

"With this FDA approval, Auvi-Q will become the first-and-only epinephrine auto-injector that talks users through each step of the injection process," said Bryan Downey, Vice President, Auvi-Q, Sanofi US. "We are confident that Auvi-Q will provide the up to six million Americans at risk for anaphylaxis and their caregivers an easy-to-use, compact option with unique features to help manage a life-threatening allergic reaction."

Advanced Disposal Services Inc. joins the growing list of companies to postpone their initial public offering amid the volatility in stock markets. Breakfast and snack food giant Kellogg Co. on Thursday reported a loss for the fourth quarter that narrowed from last year as lower revenues were more than offset by a decline in costs and expenses. Adjusted earnings per share for the quarter topped analysts' estimates, while revenue fell short of expectations. Looking ahead, the company affirmed its financial outlook for fiscal 2016. French telecom equipment maker Alcatel-Lucent, which is being acquired by Finnish network equipment maker Nokia Corp., reported higher profit in its fourth quarter with strong revenue growth.
