In a letter to the SEC, Terra Tech ($TRTC) asks to withdraw its S-3 filed on April 17, 2014 stating that it has decided not to pursue it. The USPTO issues Notices of Allowance to ZS Pharma ($ZSPH) for two patent applications related to ZS-9 (sodium zirconium cyclosilicate), the firm's product candidate in Phase 3 for the treatment of hyperkalemia. Patent application 13/371,080 describes compositions of matter that include ZS-9 and patent application 14/036,489 covers methods of treating hyperkalemia with compositions described in '080. The patents, when issued, will be valid until 2032.

Amedisys ($AMED) reports that the SEC advised the company that it had completed its investigation into the firm's operations and participation in the Medicare program and does not intend to pursue any enforcement action.

Insys Therapeutics ($INSY) plans to file an NDA this quarter for Dronabinol Oral Solution for the treatment of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting and for the treatment of anorexia in patients with AIDS.

Shares of TherapeuticsMD ($TXMD) are up 30% on robust volume in apparent response to FBR Capital's Outperform rating and $34 PT, representing almost a seven-fold increase from the current price. The company focuses on women's health, specifically hormone replacement therapies. Its four lead products in development are TX 12-001HR (estradiol + progesterone) for hormone replacement and to treat the symptoms of menopause; TX 12-002HR (progesterone) for the treatment of amenorrhea; TX 12-003HR (estradiol) for the treatment of moderate-to-severe vasomotor symptoms due to menopause and TX 12-004HR (estradiol) for the treatment of vulvar and vaginal atrophy in postmenopausal women.
