Arena Pharmaceuticals Provides Corporate Update and Reviews Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2012 Financial Results
Date:3/4/2013

SAN DIEGO, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNA) today provided a corporate update and reviewed financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

"2012 was a momentous year for Arena with the FDA approval of our first drug, BELVIQ," said Jack Lief, Arena's President and Chief Executive Officer. "It is a time of great pride, with BELVIQ representing the first of what we expect will be many novel treatments resulting from our validated research and development approach."

BELVIQ® (lorcaserin HCl) was approved on June 27, 2012, by the US Food and Drug Administration as an adjunct to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for chronic weight management in adult patients with an initial body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or greater (obese), or 27 kg/m2 or greater (overweight) in the presence of at least one weight-related comorbid condition (e.g. hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes). Once the US Drug Enforcement Administration, or DEA, finalizes the scheduling designation, BELVIQ will be available to eligible patients in the United States by prescription.

"We look forward to the US launch of BELVIQ, and the opportunity to make this important treatment option available to physicians and patients in other parts of the world," said Dominic P. Behan, Ph.D., Arena's Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer. "We are also focused on advancing our pipeline of potential new treatments for unmet medical needs."

Recent Developments:BELVIQ® (lorcaserin HCl)

  • The DEA issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposing BELVIQ be placed in Schedule IV of the Controlled Substances Act. Once final, BELVIQ will be made available by prescription to eligible patients in the United States. BELVIQ will be manufactured by Arena
