12:43 EDTBMYBristol-Myers announces plans for Q3 submission of Opdivo BLA
Bristol-Myers Squibb announced earlier that, following discussions with the FDA, the company is planning a Q3 submission of a Biologics Licensing Application for Opdivo for previously treated advanced melanoma. This will mark the second tumor type for which Bristol-Myers Squibb has a regulatory submission underway for Opdivo in the U.S. “We continue to collaborate closely with the FDA on Opdivo and the planned submission in advanced melanoma represents an important step forward in our company’s commitment to deliver innovative treatment options for patients with cancer,” said Michael Giordano, MD, Head of Oncology Development, Bristol-Myers Squibb. The advanced melanoma BLA is based on data from Checkmate -037, a multinational, multicenter, randomized open-label Phase 3 trial evaluating Opdivo compared to dacarbazine or carboplatin/paclitaxel in patients with unresectable or metastatic melanoma who have been previously treated with Yervoy and, if BRAF-mutation positive, a BRAF inhibitor regimen. Bristol-Myers Squibb has proposed the name Opdivo, which, if approved by health authorities, will serve as the trade name for nivolumab.

07:38 EDTABBVShire still has leverage, can get one more raise from AbbVie, Reuters contends
The selloff in shares of Shire (SHPG) and AbbVie (ABBV) yesterday following the latter's increased takeover offer suggests the market now expects a strong rebuttal from Shire, but "one plausible response" is a gently worded rejection that signals that another raised bid would be enough to secure a deal without a hostile play, contended Reuters Breakingviews columnists Neil Unmack and Robert Cyran. Shire’s board still has some leverage and can "probably extract one more increase in return for their recommendation," the authors believe. Reference Link

07:04 EDTCELGCelgene says OTEZLA did not achieve primary endpoint in Phase III trial
Celgene Corporation announced results of its phase III POSTURE study evaluating OTEZLA, the company’s oral, selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4, in patients with active ankylosing spondylitis. The OTEZLA arms did not achieve statistically significant improvement versus the placebo arm for the primary endpoint, the percentage of patients who achieve an ASAS 20 response at week 16. However, in a prespecified analysis, meaningful efficacy was observed at Week 24 in a large subset of patients with early-stage disease. Evaluation of the efficacy results is ongoing. An independent data monitoring committee recommended that the study proceed unchanged, based on an assessment of the safety and efficacy data at week 24. According to the protocol, magnetic resonance imaging data will be collected in a subgroup of subjects at week 52 and at additional time points, and radiographs will be taken on all study patients at week 104 and at additional time points. The safety and tolerability data observed in the POSTURE study are consistent with previously reported phase II data in ankylosing spondylitis, as well as six phase III studies of OTEZLA in psoriatic arthritis or psoriasis. No new safety signals were observed. The evaluation of safety and efficacy in the treatment arms is ongoing and the results of the study will be presented at an upcoming medical meeting. These results are from an investigational phase III study. OTEZLA is not approved for the treatment of patients with ankylosing spondylitis in any country.
