Belgium-based UCB hit the mark in the company’s Phase III clinical trial assessing zilucoplan as a potential treatment for adults with generalized myasthenia gravis, a rare autoimmune disease. Vanda Pharmaceuticals’ late-stage study of tradipitant as a treatment for the symptoms of gastroparesis, a digestive disorder, failed to meet the trial’s primary endpoint.

Rebiotix, based in Roseville, Minnesota, and Ferring Pharmaceuticals, with headquarters in Saint-Prex, Switzerland, announced positive preliminary results from the companies’ ongoing pivotal Phase III trial of RBX2660.
