Finally, Shares of Ariad Pharmaceuticals, Inc (NASDAQ:ARIA), ended its last trade with 2.38% gain, and closed at $8.16.

ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ARIA) declared that it has achieved full enrollment in the pivotal Phase 2 ALTA trial of its investigational anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) inhibitor, brigatinib. This registration study enrolled about 220 patients at about 75 sites in North America, Europe and Asia.

“We are proud to have accomplished patient enrollment in the ALTA trial in the timeframe we established at the outset,” stated Timothy P. Clackson, president of research and development and chief scientific officer of ARIAD. “We expect data from this trial to form the basis for an NDA filing of brigatinib in patients with refractory non-small cell lung cancer in the third quarter of next year.”

Median time on treatment for patients in the ALTA trial is less than 4 months, and follow-up data are limited at this time. As a result, ARIAD now anticipates that first data from the trial will be presented for presentation at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting in 2016. Presenting data at ASCO will also align more closely with the anticipated filing for marketing approval of brigatinib in the U.S. in the third quarter of 2016.

ARIAD Pharmaceuticals, Inc., an oncology company, engages in the discovery, development, and commercialization of medicines for cancer patients. The company offers Iclusig (ponatinib), a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) for the treatment of adult patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia in the United States, Europe, and other territories.
