12:55 EDTACHN, GILD, ABTAchillion drops after competitors report promising HCV data
Achillion (ACHN), which is developing a hepatitis C virus, or HCV, treatment, is retreating after two other companies reported that their HCV treatments had performed well in tests. Gilead (GILD) reported that it did not detect HCV in the RNA of 25 HCV patients four weeks after they were treated with the company's investigational drug. Meanwhile, Abbott (ABT) said that its HCV treatment, SVR12, had produced "high sustained viral response rates" in patients. In a note to investors earlier today, Deutsche Bank analyst Alethia Young wrote that she expects Gilead to obtain 65% of the HCV market, but she predicts that Achillion will garner a 15% share. Moreover, the analyst believes that Achillion's treatment is simpler and better than that of Abbott. She thinks that the decline in Achillion's stock today is overdone, and recommends buying the shares on weakness. Similarly, Wells Fargo analyst Brian Abraham believes that Achillion's data suggests that its treatment could be as good as or better than that of Abbott’s. Achillion is well-positioned to participate in the HCV market, and today's weakness has created an attractive entry point in the stock, he wrote. In early afternoon trading, Achillion slumped $1.06, or 11.76%, to $7.91.

11:34 EDTABTEC clears Abbott sale of non-U.S. EPD-DM business to Mylan, with conditions
The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Abbott Laboratories' (ABT) Non-U.S. Developed Markets Specialty and Branded Generics Business, or EPD-DM, by Mylan (MYL). The decision is conditional upon the divestment of a number of Mylan's businesses in Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Ireland and Italy. The Commission had concerns that the transaction, as initially notified, would have reduced competition on the market for several medicines. The commitments offered by Mylan address these concerns, the EC said.

11:00 EDTGILDMylan expands Hepatitis C licensing agreement with Gilead
Mylan (MYL) announced that its subsidiary Mylan Laboratories Limited is expanding its hepatitis C licensing agreement with Gilead Sciences (GILD) to include the non-exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute the investigational NS5A inhibitor GS-5816 and single tablet regimen of sofosbuvir/GS-5816, once approved, in 91 developing countries. The single tablet regimen is being evaluated in Phase 3 clinical studies for the treatment of all six genotypes of hepatitis C. If approved by regulatory authorities, the sofosbuvir/GS-5816 regimen would become the first all-oral single tablet regimen for all hepatitis C genotypes. A pan-genotypic therapeutic option is particularly important for developing countries, where genotype testing is often unreliable or not readily available. This agreement is in addition to the licensing and technology transfer agreement that Mylan entered into with Gilead in September 2014, which grants Mylan the non-exclusive rights to manufacture and distribute sofosbuvir and ledipasvir/sofosbuvir in 91 developing countries. Mylan also partners with Gilead on expanding access to high quality, affordable antiretrovirals for the treatment of HIV/AIDS in India and other developing countries.
