14:05 EDTRHHBYPTC Therapeutics reports publication of preclinical study results in SMA models
PTC Therapeutics (PTCT) announced that he journal Science published results of a preclinical study demonstrating that treatment with orally available RNA splicing modifiers of the SMN2 gene starting early after birth is preventing deficits in mouse models of Spinal Muscular Atrophy or SMA. Stuart Peltz, CEO of PTC Therapeutics, said, "Using the experience and expertise in RNA biology we have gained at PTC over the last 16 years, we used our alternative splicing technology to identify and subsequently optimize investigational compounds that target the SMN2 splicing to produce the SMN protein. Our unique partnership with Roche and the SMA Foundation has allowed this project to rapidly move into clinical development." Luca Santarelli, Head of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology and Rare Diseases at Roche (RHHBY), said, "Although still preclinical, these results demonstrate how SMN2 splicing modifiers could correct the molecular deficit that causes SMA. This study represents an important step towards developing a potential therapeutic option for this devastating and currently untreatable condition. Early clinical trials are currently underway to determine the safety and tolerability of this approach."

12:59 EDTABBVCovidien drops as Treasury explores ways to stymie inversions
Shares of medical device and drug maker Covidien (COV) are falling after multiple media outlets reported that the Treasury Department is looking into ways of curtailing tax inversion deals. Covidien has agreed to be acquired by Medtronic (MDT) in a tax inversion deal. BACKGROUND: Tax inversions refer to an acquisition of one company, usually officially based in a country in Europe or elsewhere, by a U.S. company, following which the acquiring company becomes domiciled in the same country as the company that it bought. The switch has the potential to significantly lower the acquiring company's tax rate. WHAT'S NEW: The Treasury Department is looking at options that would enable the Obama administration to curtail inversion deals without authorization from Congress, multiple media outlets reported last night and today. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Wells Fargo analyst Larry Biegelsen wrote that he believes that Medtronic would buy Covidien even if the transaction cannot be done as an inversion. At a conference in June, Medtronic CFO Gary Ellis said that his company would "do the deal whether it's an inversion or not inversion," Biegelsen stated. If no inversion is possible, Medtronic would respond by using less of its stock and more debt to fund the transaction, the analyst believes. Such a change would actually cause Medtronic's cash earnings per share to be higher in the first and second year after the deal than under the current structure, the analyst indicated. He kept an Outperform rating on Medtronic. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Covidien dropped 2% to $84.50 and Medtronic fell 1% to $61.50. Meanwhile, drug maker Shire (SHPG), which has agreed to merge with its peer AbbVie (ABBV) in a tax inversion deal, is falling 4% to $236.
