08:12 EDTTKMRDicerna announces license agreement with Tekmira for PH1 program
Dicerna Pharmaceuticals (DRNA) announced a licensing agreement for Dicerna to use Tekmira’s (TKMR) proprietary lipid nanoparticle technology for delivery of DCR-PH1, Dicerna’s investigational product candidate for primary hyperoxaluria type 1, a rare, inherited liver disorder that often results in kidney failure, and for which there are no approved therapies. This announcement follows the successful testing of DCR-PH1 in combination with Tekmira's LNP technology in animal models, including mice and non-human primates. Under the agreement, Dicerna will pay Tekmira $2.5 million upfront, as well as $22 million in potential development milestones, and a mid-single-digit royalty on future PH1 sales. Tekmira’s LNP system has shown in other human clinical studies to provide potent, safe and effective RNA delivery to hepatocytes. Licensing Tekmira’s LNP will streamline the development path for DCR-PH1 and allows Dicerna to focus its LNP efforts on its oncology pipeline.

08:30 EDTOCNLawsky reports a positive for mortgage space, says FBR Capital
FBR Capital views reports of New York Department of Financial Services Superintendent Benjamin Lawsky’s plans to step down in 2015 as a positive for mortgage servicing space. FBR notes Ocwen Financial (OCN) has been the company under the most scrutiny with Lawsky in charge and that Nationstar Mortgage (NSM)) has also received a letter from the regulator. It also views the reports as a positive for Walter Investment (WAC), which it notes has avoided a targeted communication by Lawsky thus far. FBR thinks a softening of the regulatory environment could allow the big banks to start moving product again.
