BioMarin develops and commercializes therapies for people with serious and life-threatening rare diseases and medical conditions.  The Company is developing, among other product candidates, BMN 307, an AAV5 mediated gene therapy, which is in a phase 1/2 clinical trial to normalize blood phenylalanine concentration levels in patients with phenylketonuria (“PKU”).  The Company’s Phearless Phase 1/2 study is evaluating BMN 307 in adults with PKU. 

On November 7, 2018, BioMarin shared pre-clinical data of BMN 307, which demonstrated lifetime Phe corrections in mouse models, and announced that the Company was planning to file an investigational new drug application (“IND”) for BMN 307 with the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) in the second half of 2019.  On January 13, 2020, the Company announced that the FDA granted IND status for BMN 307 for the treatment of PKU.  On September 24, 2020, the Company announced that it had dosed the first human participant in the global Phearless Phase 1/2 study of BMN 307.

On September 5, 2021, BioMarin issued a press release announcing, “that the [FDA] placed a clinical hold on the BMN 307 Phearless Phase 1/2 study”, which “is evaluating BMN 307, an investigational AAV5-phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) gene therapy, in adults with [PKU].”  BioMarin advised investors that ”[t]he FDA’s clinical hold was based on interim safety findings from a pre-clinical, non-GLP pharmacology study.”

On this news, BioMarin’s stock price fell $7.14 per share, or 8.4%, to close at $77.81 per share on September 7, 2021, the next trading day.
