AMAG Pharmaceuticals Provides COVID-19 Company Update
WALTHAM, Mass., April 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMAG Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMAG) today provided an update regarding the potential impact of COVID-19 on the company. AMAG is committed to the health and safety of its employees, patients, healthcare providers, business partners and communities and is following the guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention and local public health authorities, including implementing a work from home policy for all employees.
All products currently remain available to patients. At this time, the company’s supply chain has not been materially affected by COVID-19 and the company continues to closely monitor suppliers and supply levels. The company has risk mitigation plans in place to minimize potential supply interruptions, including redundant drug substance manufacturing and inventory safety stock, and will continue to work diligently with its suppliers to maintain continuous supply as the COVID-19 situation evolves.
The COVID-19 pandemic is an evolving situation and is having an impact on clinical trials globally. The company continues to assess potential impacts to its current clinical development activities for the ongoing AMAG-423 Phase 2b/3a clinical trial and the planned ciraparantag Phase 2b trial in healthy volunteers. The company believes that the COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting its current development timelines, including delaying new site initiation and patient enrollment.
Similarly, the company believes the COVID-19 pandemic will impact its business operations and associated financial performance, primarily due to reduced patient visits to healthcare providers. The company plans to provide further updates during its first quarter 2020 earnings review in early May.
AMAG is a pharmaceutical company focused on bringing innovative products to patients with unmet medical needs. The company does this by leveraging our development and commercial expertise to invest in and grow its pharmaceutical products across a range of therapeutic areas.
