07:03 EDTNVSAnacor, Sandoz enter into agreement for commercialization of Kerydin in the U.S.
Anacor Pharmaceuticals (ANAC) announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Sandoz, a Novartis (NVS) company, pursuant to which Sandoz will distribute and commercialize Anacorís drug KERYDIN topical solution, 5% in the United States. PharmaDerm, the branded dermatology business of Sandoz, will be responsible for the sales and marketing of KERYDIN. On July 8, Anacor announced that the U.S. FDA approved the New Drug Application for KERYDIN, the first oxaborole antifungal approved for the topical treatment of onychomycosis of the toenails, a fungal infection of the nail and nail bed that affects approximately 35 million people in the United States, according to Podiatry Today. The agreement with Sandoz entitles Anacor to upfront payments totaling $40M and an additional milestone payment of $25M expected to be paid in January 2015. Under the agreement, Sandoz and Anacor will share equally, under a long-term profit-sharing arrangement, the gross profits accrued by Sandoz on sales of KERYDIN, except that in 2015 Anacor will start receiving profit-sharing payments after the first $50M of gross profits have been accrued by Sandoz. The long-term profit-sharing arrangement includes cumulative minimum profit-sharing payments to Anacor in 2016 totaling $45M. Anacor will also have the option to repurchase all rights in KERYDIN from Sandoz on the later of three years from launch or December 31, 2017, at a price to be determined pursuant to the agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Anacor will supply product to Sandoz at cost through Anacorís contract manufacturers, and Sandoz will be responsible for all of its selling, marketing, distribution, general and administrative costs related to the commercialization of KERYDIN. Anacor will hold the NDA and will be responsible for any further development of KERYDIN.

05:32 EDTNVSNovartis reconfirms FY14 revenue guidance up at low to mid single digit rate
The company stated, "We are reconfirming our outlook for FY14. Group net sales in 2014 are expected to grow at a low to mid-single digit rate. Group core operating income is expected to grow ahead of sales in 2014, and now refined to mid to high-single digit. This outlook recognizes the entry of generic competition for Diovan monotherapy in the U.S. on July 7, including an authorized generic from Sandoz on the same date. If June average exchange rates prevail for the remainder of the year, the currency impact for the year would be -1% on sales and -3% to -4% on core operating income."

05:44 EDTNVSNovartis to license Google 'smart lens' technology
Novartis (NVS) announced that its eye care division Alcon has entered into an agreement with a division of Google (GOOG) to in-license its "smart lens" technology for all ocular medical uses. The agreement with Google[x], a team within Google that is devoted to finding new solutions to big global problems, provides Alcon with the opportunity to develop and commercialize Google's "smart lens" technology with the potential to transform eye care and further enhance Alcon's pipeline and global leadership in contact lenses and intraocular lenses. The transaction remains subject to anti-trust approvals. The agreement between Google and Alcon represents an important step for Novartis, across all of its divisions, to leverage technology to manage human diseases and conditions.

Novartis aims to enhance the ways in which diseases are mapped within the body and ultimately prevented.
05:35 EDTNVSNovartis collaborates with Banner Alzheimer's Institute on study
Novartis announced a collaboration with Banner Alzheimer's Institute, or BAI, on a pioneering clinical study in Alzheimer's disease, or AD, prevention. The study will determine whether two Novartis investigational anti-amyloid treatments can prevent or delay the emergence of symptoms of AD in people identified as being at genetic risk for developing the late-onset form of the disease. Using an innovative trial design, the two treatments will be given in cognitively healthy people at genetic risk of developing the build-up of amyloid protein in the brain that may eventually lead to AD. One treatment is an active immunotherapy, a treatment that stimulates an immune response, and triggers the production of natural antibodies against amyloid. This investigational treatment, given via an injection, is in phase II clinical development. The second treatment, a BACE inhibitor, is an oral medication about to enter phase I trials and is designed to prevent the production of different forms of amyloid.
