Every day they lose dollars: $250k a day, $1.5M a week, $7.5M a month.

*This assumes there are 1000 patients at 15K getting treatments every 2 months.

In some of the interviews I've seen with US EPP patients, some of them are so sensitive to light that they'll have a painful reaction indoors to the wrong kind of lightbulb. Their sensitivity isn't to seasonally & latitude dependent UV light, It's to nearly ubiquitous blue light (450–495 nm). Eumelanin happens to filter both.

One patient, who spoke about her EPP at Yale Medical Center in honor of Rare Disease Day 2018, had to conduct the presentation with the lights turned off in the classroom because she could feel a reaction starting. The room had no windows. This same patient was able to go to the beach on a sunny day while on Scenesse.

While there are a few milder cases of EPP where the patients might limit their treatment to 4x a year when they're most likely to be outdoors, there are many patients who, regardless of the climate where they live, will absolutely will need treatment 6x a year just to be able to take the sheets down from their bedroom windows.

I don't recall the exact reason that the EMA gave for recommending 4 implants per year, but it's absolute rubbish. They might have claimed that there was a valid medical basis for their decision, but there isn't. It's quite obviously a cost-saving measure. The FDA doesn't consider cost of treatment in their decision making process, and their assessment contains no such restrictions.

I would think a lot of the US would need treatment some of the winter. The latitude in Florida lines up with North Africa. Most northern states line up with with south Europe.

Don't worry Johnny, I'm sure with the wealth of recent US commercial pharmaceutical experience they have on the Board that the tardiness in getting the product to patients and making sales is all part of what will come to be described by said Board in due course as "a perfectly conceived and executed launch plan".

I live in Brisbane Australia so this question might seem elementary to some. Some past posts have suggested that US EPP suffers will only need to have implants in the warmer months. How about the 10 USA states that enjoy mild winters. Wouldn’t they want an implant all year protection?

US patients theoretically have access to 6 implants per year. 6 x 60 days = 360 days, or pretty much the entire year.

Every day that Scenesse remains unavailable is another day that Clinuvel loses money.

If Clinuvel had been ready to distribute at approval, most US patients would be halfway through their 2nd implant by now. That's quite a missed opportunity, both financially and for the patients who have been patiently waiting in the dark.

A CNBC commentator said last Friday that the value of Apple Inc shares almost equals the valuation of the entire Australian stock market. Just a factoid. After thinking about it, the lack of Scenesse distribution in the US up to the present probably doesn't matter, since it is winter in the N hemisphere and EPP patients in the US will no doubt want to "save" their 4-6 implants for the coming summer months. However, the company gets no reprieve from the exclusivity clock which started ticking upon US approval late last year. They will get the time back for the period the drug was under review by the FDA, which was considerable. But they had better get distribution channels lined up now for the coming spring/summer months or they will miss out on an entire season of US sales. And, any monitoring requirement for the US distribution is ridiculous since the product is proven safe and effective now for many years. Also, the January "Newsletter" continued the annoying trend of providing no actual news but a lot of hand wringing about how hard it has been and how wonderful they have done against such adversity. Give us all a break now, Philippe.
