17:04 EDTRHHBYGenentech announces interim results from POPLAR study
Genentech, a member of the Roche Group announced interim results from a global, randomized Phase II study, POPLAR, in people with previously treated non-small cell lung cancer, NSCLC. The study showed the investigational cancer immunotherapy MPDL3280A doubled the likelihood of survival; hazard ratio [HR]=0.47) in people whose cancer expressed the highest levels of PD-L1 compared with docetaxel chemotherapy. An improvement in survival was also observed in people who had medium and high or any level of PD-L1 expression, as characterized by a test being developed by Roche. MPDL3280A was generally well tolerated and adverse events were consistent with what has been previously reported for MPDL3280A in NSCLC. Updated results will be presented in an oral session at the 51st Annual Meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. “In our study of MPDL3280A in previously treated lung cancer, the amount of PD-L1 expressed by a person’s cancer correlated with improvement in survival,” said Sandra Horning, M.D., chief medical officer and head of Global Product Development. “The goal of PD-L1 as a biomarker is to identify people most likely to experience improved overall survival with MPDL3280A alone, and which people may be appropriate candidates for a combination of medicines.”

07:05 EDTSNYSanofi exercises option on therapeutic program with Selecta Biosciences
Selecta Biosciences., a clinical stage biotechnology company developing a novel class of targeted antigen-specific immune therapies, today announced that, under the terms of an existing strategic global collaboration, Sanofi has exercised its option to an exclusive license to develop an immunotherapy for the treatment of celiac disease. Under the terms of the collaboration, Selecta is eligible to receive research support and several pre-clinical, clinical, regulatory and sales milestones totaling up to $300 million for this new program in celiac disease. Additionally, Selecta is also entitled to up to double digit tiered royalties as percentage of product net sales for any commercialized immunotherapy resulting from these efforts with Sanofi. November 2012, Selecta announced that they had formed a strategic global collaboration to discover highly targeted, antigen-specific immunotherapies for life threatening allergies. Under the agreement, Sanofi obtained a first exclusive license to develop an immunotherapy designed to abate acute immune responses against a life threatening food allergen and an option to develop two additional candidate immunotherapies for allergies and celiac disease. With the exercise of this option by Sanofi, Selecta and Sanofi now have two initiatives actively advancing immune tolerance treatments under the terms of the 2012 agreement. In October 2014, Selecta and JDRF announced another collaboration with Sanofi to research novel antigen-specific immune therapies for Type 1 Diabetes.

15:54 EDTNVSGlaxo CEO defends strategy, warns of risks of chasing higher prices, FT says
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) CEO Andrew Witty defends the company's shift in focus from high-priced prescription drugs to higher volume, but lower priced, products, warning that chasing ever-higher prices risks undermining the industry and may create "its own tension that leads to some kind of change,” reported Financial Times, citing an interview. Witty acknowledges the company's asset swap with Novartis (NVS) opens the door to a potential break up, but argues there are benefits to keeping pharmaceuticals, vaccines and consumer goods together and there would be “no logic” in a split at this early time after the Novartis deal, the report added.
