08:19 EDTPTCTPTC Therapeutics to present Phase 1 clinical data from SMA program
PTC Therapeutics announced that Phase 1 clinical data from the company's joint development program with Roche and the SMA Foundation in spinal muscular atrophy, or SMA, will be presented at the 2015 American Academy of Neurology 67th Annual Meeting. As previously disclosed, findings from the Phase 1 study indicated that RG7800, an investigational oral therapy for SMA, showed a favorable safety profile and was well tolerated at all dose levels studied. In addition, proof of mechanism was demonstrated by a dose-dependent effect on Survival Motor Neuron 2, or SMN2, splicing towards the production of full length SMN2 mRNA. The Phase 1 study was a single ascending dose, placebo-controlled, double-blind study in 48 healthy volunteers testing single oral doses from 0.5 to 90 mg.
07:59 EDTPTCTJPMorgan sees range-bound as best case for PTC shares
JPMorgan believes the many triple-digit price targets for shares of PTC Therapeutics factor in unrealistic expectations for the company's pipeline in the absence of positive phase 3 data. The firm expects shares to be range bound in a best case with volatility likely amid continued takeover speculation. JPMorgan thinks a potential buyer is unlikely to pay "significantly" higher than current shares levels, particularly with the Phase 3 trial of ataluren in Duchenne muscular dystrophy in Q4. The firm raised its price target for PTC shares to $77 from $65 to reflect the MPS 1 opportunity for Translarna. It reiterates a Neutral rating on the stock.

07:26 EDTGALEGalena completes over-enrollment of NeuVax Phase 3 PRESENT clinical trial
Galena Biopharma announced the completion of enrollment in the NeuVax Phase 3 PRESENT, or Prevention of Recurrence in Early-Stage, Node-Positive Breast Cancer with Low to Intermediate HER2 Expression with NeuVax Treatment, clinical trial. NeuVax is a first-in-class, HER2-directed cancer immunotherapy under evaluation to prevent breast cancer recurrence after standard of care treatment in the adjuvant setting. As anticipated, Galena over-enrolled the trial by 7.7% with a total of 758 patients now in the intent-to-treat, or ITT, population. The protocol for the PRESENT trial, being conducted under an FDA approved Special Protocol Assessment, or SPA, called for 700 patients; and, the company expects this higher number of ITT patients will increase the confidence in both the timing and quality of the statistics and the final outcome of the trial. The primary endpoint is currently expected to be reached in 2018, after the last patient dosed reaches her 36th month of treatment, or a total of 141 events occur, whichever comes later.
