On August 25, 2021, the Company announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) has approved SKYTROFA® (lonapegsomatropin-tcgd) for the treatment of pediatric patients one year and older who weigh at least 11.5 kg (25.4 lb) and have growth failure due to inadequate secretion of endogenous growth hormone. As a once-weekly injection, SKYTROFA is the first FDA approved product that delivers somatropin (growth hormone) by sustained release over one week. The approval includes the new SKYTROFA® Auto-Injector and cartridges which, after first removed from a refrigerator, allow families to store the medicine at room temperature for up to six months.
