- Arrowhead Research (ARWR -9.7%) says it is unencumbered in its efforts to develop its HBV drug candidate ARC-520. It has broad access to the IP necessary to develop the product and has no restrictions on its freedom to operate. The company signed a license agreement with Alnylam (ALNY) in January 2012 for HBV-related IP plus it owns other patents related to the drug's technology. It believes that ARC-520 does not infringe on any patents in Alnylam's McSwiggen patent estate.
- ARWR shares took it on the chin today due to the market's perception that ALNY's HBV patents may be a issue for ARWR.
