Summer Street believes a potential takeover of BioDelivery Sciences (BDSI) by partner Endo (ENDP) is no less likely after Endo made a bid to acquire Auxilium (AUXL). The firm believes an Endo buyout of BioDelivery is likely a 2015 event when BioDelivery's Bunavail for opioid dependence is on the market and BEMA Buprenorphine is facing FDA approval. Summer Street says it is a buyer of BioDelivery Sciences on weakness this morning and keeps a Buy rating on the name with a $28 price target.

Gilead announced results from a Phase 2 study evaluating simtuzumab, an investigational inhibitor of lysyl oxidase-like-2, in combination with gemcitabine for patients with previously untreated advanced pancreatic cancer. In the study, the addition of simtuzumab to gemcitabine did not significantly increase progression-free survival compared to placebo plus gemcitabine. There was no difference in adverse events between patients taking simtuzumab versus placebo. Simtuzumab is being evaluated in several ongoing Phase 2 trials, including for advanced colorectal cancer, myelofibrosis, as monotherapy for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and for liver fibrosis. Other agents in Gileadís oncology pipeline are currently being evaluated in clinical trials for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

12:37 EDTNKTRNektar reports FDA approval of MOVANTIK for treatment of OIC
Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR) reported that partner AstraZeneca (AZN) announced that the FDA approved MOVANTIK tablets as the first once-daily oral peripherally-acting mu-opioid receptor antagonist medication for the treatment of opioid-induced constipation, or OIC, in adult patients with chronic, non-cancer pain. In line with the recommendation from the FDA Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee that took place in June, AstraZeneca has agreed to conduct a post-marketing, observational epidemiologic cardiovascular safety study for MOVANTIK. MOVANTIK is expected to be available to patients in the first half of 2015. MOVANTIK is currently a schedule II controlled substance because it is structurally related to noroxymorphone. During the review of the New Drug Application, the FDA evaluated the abuse potential of MOVANTIK and the approved labelling indicates that MOVANTIK has no risk of abuse or dependency. AstraZeneca submitted a petition for the descheduling of MOVANTIK to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, or DEA, in March 2012, which was accepted for review and will be considered by the DEA as part of the process for addressing the descheduling request.
