09:20 EDTACORCelgene patent latest to be challenged by Hayman Capital's Bass
The Coalition For Affordable Drugs, a group linked to Hayman Capital's Kyle Bass, has requested an Inter Partes Review of Claims 1–10 of U.S. Patent No. 6,045,501 held by Celgene (CELG), according to a USPTO filing. The ’501 patent claims methods for delivering a drug, including a teratogenic drug, to a patient while preventing the exposure of a fetus or other contraindicated individuals to the drug. The patent is related to the company's Revlimid drug. BACKGROUND: Previously, the same coalition requested an Inter Partes Review of patents held by Pharmacyclics (PCYC), Acorda Therapeutics (ACOR), Shire (SHPG) and Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ). On January 7, Reuters reported that Bass planned to take "around 15 pharmaceutical companies with a combined market capitalization of $450B" into an Inter Partes Review for extending patents in questionable ways, citing a presentation made by Bass in Oslo. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Celgene are down 0.5% to $114.92 in pre-market trading.

05:26 EDTNVSNovartis says data shows Gilenya high efficacy
Novartis announced new analysis from the Phase III FREEDOMS and FREEDOMS II. The data showed that previously-treated patients with highly-active relapsing multiple sclerosis, or RMS, who were treated with Gilenya had a six-times greater likelihood of achieving 'no evidence of disease activity' across four key measures of disease activity compared to placebo over two years. This is referred to as NEDA4 and is achieved when a patient with RMS has no relapses, no new MRI lesions, no MS-related brain shrinkage and no disability progression. This analysis was the first time patients with highly-active RMS who had been treated in the previous year with an injectable therapy were assessed using the NEDA4 definition that includes brain shrinkage. Brain shrinkage is a marker of the widespread inflammatory damage in the central nervous system and is associated with accumulated loss of function. By using this updated NEDA4 definition, physicians are able to get a more complete picture of a patient's disease and response to treatment, which is crucial to identify the optimal therapy to slow short- and long-term disease progression. This is especially important for people with highly-active RMS, who are at a greater risk of relapses and future loss of function, and may therefore require a different treatment approach.

12:31 EDTNVSOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were higher at midday after China’s central bank relaxed reserve requirements for its banks. The nation's own stock market struggled to overcome the cross current of other actions taken to cut down on speculative trading there, but U.S. stock markets surged at the open and had not looked back by midday. The domestic economic calendar has quiet and earnings continue to be the focal point at home, as a great number of S&P 500 companies prepare to report this week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Chicago Fed National Activity Index had a reading of -0.42, versus expectations for a +0.10 reading. A reading below zero represents economic activity below trend. In China, the People's Bank of China cut the reserve-requirement ratio, or the amount of reserves lenders need to hold, by 1 full percentage point, which was the biggest cut since the depths of the financial crisis and more than expected by economists. However, the Shanghai Composite Index still dropped 1.6%, since the reserve-requirement cut came after regulators had moved to curb speculative trading with actions taken Friday. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) advanced 1% after the bank's headline earnings excluding certain adjustments and tax benefits beat expectations. CEO James Gorman noted that the first quarter of the year was the bank's "strongest quarter in many years with improved performance across most areas of the firm." Morgan Stanley also increased its quarterly dividend to 15c per share from 10c per share. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Hasbro (HAS), which gained 10% after the toymaker's sales and profits widely topped expectations in its fiscal first quarter. Also higher was Rovi (ROVI), which gained more than 10% after the company announced it has renewed its patent license and interactive program guide product agreement with Charter Communications (CHTR). Among the noteworthy losers was FARO Technologies (FARO), which dropped 25% and was downgraded by Noble Financial and Needham after the preannounced lower than expected first quarter revenue. Also lower were a number of companies that are developing CAR-T cancer therapies following the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research. Mizuho analyst Peter Lawson attributed the pullback to disappointment in this weekend's solid tumor data on a small number of patients with advanced cancers who were given CAR-T therapy developed by Novartis (NVS) and the University of Pennsylvania. Shares of Kite Pharma (KITE), Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), blue bird bio (BLUE), and ZIOPHARM Oncology (ZIOP) were all lower near noon. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 236.19, or 1.32%, to 18,062.49, the Nasdaq was up 59.54, or 1.21%, to 4,991.35, and the S&P 500 was up 21.82, or 1.05%, to 2,103.00.
