Sarepta third-quarter results were encouraging with the company reporting a narrower-than-expected loss. The company received a boost with the FDA granting accelerated approval to Exondys 51 for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).  The FDA approval makes Exondys 51 the first DMD treatment to gain approval in the U.S. Moreover, we are positive on the company’s strategic agreements to boost its DMD portfolio.  We are also encouraged by the company’s efforts in developing its DMD pipeline beyond Exondys 51 in other exon-skipping treatments. However, competition in the RNA-Based treatment market remains a threat. Also, dependence on a single product for near-term growth is concerning.
