Sanofi and Lexicon announced Zynquista approval for by EMA 4/26/19. Lexicon is entitled to a milestone payment in 2Q19 tied to the approval, which we estimate to be around $30M. Discussions w/ FDA around CRL in T1D are planned. No guidance on timing. We previously removed the revenue stream from our model. The first of several Phase 3 T2D trials are expected to generate results beginning in 2Q19 (metformin combination first).
