Dec 21st 2012 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Orexigen Therapeutics entitled "Investment Summary: LIGHT Ahead". In summary, the report says:
With the screening completed of 13,192 patients for the cardiovascular outcome trial (CVOT), LIGHT, Orexigen is on track to enrol c 10,400 and randomise c 9,000 patients by 1 January and 15 January 2013 respectively. An interim analysis of the trial could occur in between Q2-Q413, making the data available for FDA two to three months thereafter. We believe the LIGHT study has a high probability of generating positive outcome and ultimately leading to an approval in the US.
