Incyte reported higher earnings and sales in the second quarter. Incyte is based near Wilmington.

“The second quarter was strong with total revenues up 29% year-over-year, multiple approvals and the continued advancement of our pipeline. The launch of Opzelura in atopic dermatitis continues to progress well and in recent weeks, improvements in reimbursement have translated into an increase in covered claims. Revenues in the second quarter were temporarily impacted by the shift from free drug to paid prescription. Patient demand and satisfaction remain strong,” stated Hervé Hoppenot, CEO, Incyte. “In July, Opzelura was also approved by the FDA in nonsegmental vitiligo, creating a new growth opportunity as the first therapy approved for repigmentation of vitiligo.”

  • Jakafi (ruxolitinib) net product revenues of $598 million in Q2’22 (+13% year over year driven by volume growth; raising the bottom end of full year guidance to new range of $2.36 to $2.40 billion
