17:05 EDTAGNAckman reports 9.7% stake in Allergan, to consult with Valeant stake
Bill Ackman's Pershing Square disclosed in a regulatory filing that it holds a 9.7% stake in Allergan (AGN) and that it intends to consult with Valeant (VRX) on its investment. In its filing, Pershing Square said, "Valeant currently intends to propose a merger in which Allergan's shareholders will receive a combination of cash and Valeant common shares. Valeant has not yet determined the amount of cash and number of Valeant common shares it will offer, but it currently expects the cash component will total around $15B. Barclays and Royal Bank of Canada have indicated that they are prepared to deliver financing commitments covering the cash portion of the transaction at the time Valeant makes an offer." Pershing disclosed that on February 25, it entered an agreement with Valeant. As part of the deal, Pershing and Valeant agreed to for a new, jointly owned entity through which they would acquire equity in Allergan. Also, as part of that deal, Pershing Square will acquire $400M of Valeant stock at a 15% discount to current market prices immediately prior to consummation of an offer by Valeant to acquire Allergan. Shares of Allergan remain higher by more than 18% in after hours trade, while Valeant shares are up about 10%.

08:05 EDTABMDAbiomed acquires exclusive license for Opsens' optical sensor technology
Abiomed announced its acquisition of an exclusive license from collaboration partner Opsens. Through this exclusive licensing agreement, which covers the use of certain optical sensor technology in the field of cardio-circulatory assist devices, Opsens' miniature optical pressure sensors will be integrated into the Impella heart pump catheters to help further automate the control and operation of the Impella device in the catheterization lab. This licensing agreement, which secures Abiomed's rights to the technology and gives Abiomed the right to manufacture the sensors, is a continuation of an initial collaboration, entered into between Opsens and Abiomed in 2010.

06:49 EDTONCYOncolytics Biotech reports evaluation of clinical study with REOLYSIN
Oncolytics Biotech announced that Dr. Adel Jebar of the Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology, University of Leeds, presented a poster at the 8th Annual International Conference on Oncolytic Virus Therapeutics held in Oxford, UK. Researchers examined REOLYSIN in panels of both normal and malignant liver cells and administered either REOLYSIN or saline to SCID mice with HCV-positive HCC xenografts. The aims of the study were to assess interferon secretion in normal and malignant liver cells in response to reovirus infection; the effects of reovirus infection in normal and malignant liver cells on HBV and HCV proteins; and the anti-viral and anti-cancer effects of reovirus in vivo. Based on these results, the investigators are evaluating the conduct of a translation clinical study.

Oncolytics Biotech announced that Dr. Adel Jebar of the Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology, University of Leeds, presented a poster at the 8th Annual International Conference on Oncolytic Virus Therapeutics held in Oxford, UK. Researchers examined Reolysin in panels of both normal and malignant liver cells and administered either Reolysin or saline to SCID mice with HCV-positive HCC xenografts. The aims of the study were to assess interferon secretion in normal and malignant liver cells in response to reovirus infection; the effects of reovirus infection in normal and malignant liver cells on HBV and HCV proteins; and the anti-viral and anti-cancer effects of reovirus in vivo. The study results showed that reovirus infection of primary human liver cells and HCC lines induced a robust type I interferon response; that reovirus-conditioned media from both primary human liver cells and JHH1 cells potently inhibits HCV and HBV in vitro with these effects abrogated by the blockade of the type I interferon receptor and soluble interferon beta; and that reovirus inhibits HCC xenograft growth and HCV replication in vivo. The researchers concluded that the results described a novel dual anti-viral and anti-cancer mechanism for reovirus in HBV/HCV-positive HCC and that reovirus treatment of patients with HBV/HCV positive HCC will likely lead to the suppression, rather than exacerbation, of the underlying oncogenic viral infection. Based on these results, the investigators are evaluating the conduct of a translation clinical study.
