Travere Therapeutics has recently announced its plans to reduce its workforce by approximately 20%. This strategic decision will allow the company to allocate more resources towards the successful launch of Filspari in IgAN and the advancement of pegtibatinase in classical HCU.
By consolidating its efforts and streamlining operations, Travere aims to extend its expected cash runway into 2028. This move will provide the company with substantial financial stability for future endeavors.
Following this announcement, Travere Therapeutics has experienced a surge in its stock price during after-hours trading. The stock rose by 8.4% to $6.82. However, it is worth noting that the stock had experienced a decline of 2% during the regular session and has seen a 70% decrease in value since the beginning of the year.
Travere has also achieved a significant milestone in its development of Filspari in IgAN. The company successfully completed a pre-NDA meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This meeting focused on the potential approval of Filspari for the treatment of Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy, commonly known as Berger's disease.
Additionally, Travere will prioritize the advancement of pegtibatinase in classical HCU, also referred to as homocystinuria due to CBS deficiency. This disorder can result in the accumulation of certain amino acids in the bloodstream.
Travere Therapeutics' strategic realignment underscores its commitment to addressing critical medical needs and driving innovation in the healthcare industry.
