07:03 EDTAZNAstraZeneca says Pegasus-TIMI 54 study met primary efficacy endpoint
AstraZeneca announced that the PEGASUS-TIMI 54 study, a large scale outcomes trial involving over 21,000 patients, successfully met its primary efficacy endpoint. The study assessed BRILINTA tablets at either 60mg twice daily or 90mg twice daily plus low-dose aspirin for the secondary prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients who had experienced a heart attack one to three years prior to study start. The primary efficacy endpoint was a composite of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction or stroke. Preliminary analysis did not reveal any unexpected safety issues. Full evaluation of the data is ongoing. The PEGASUS-TIMI 54 study investigated two different doses of ticagrelor on a background of low dose aspirin versus placebo plus low dose aspirin, in patients aged 50 and older with a history of heart attack and one additional CV risk factor. The study was designed to better understand the management of patients more than 12 months after their heart attack, who remain at high risk for major thrombotic events. Complete results from the PEGASUS-TIMI 54 study will be submitted to a scientific meeting in 2015 and pending further analysis, AstraZeneca plans to file this data with regulatory health authorities. The PEGASUS-TIMI 54 study is part of AstraZeneca’s PARTHENON program. The PLATO study, involving over 18,000 ACS patients, was the first study in the program and is the basis on which ticagrelor has been approved in over 100 countries and included in 12 major ACS treatment guidelines globally. Further ongoing PARTHENON studies are investigating ticagrelor for the prevention of cardiovascular events in patients with peripheral arterial disease, ischaemic stroke or transient ischaemic attack, and in patients with diabetes and coronary atherosclerosis. BRILINTA is not approved for secondary prevention of atherothrombotic events in patients with a history of heart attack beyond one year or for the prevention of cardiovascular events in patients with PAD, stroke, diabetes or atherosclerosis.

12:10 EDTACTRBC Capital says Celgene's shares could rise to $200 'over time'
The long-term profit guidance that Celgene (CELG) released today suggests that the stock, currently trading around $115, could reach $200 "over time," RBC Capital wrote in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: After Celgene estimated that its EPS would exceed $12.50, excluding certain items, by 2020, RBC Capital says that the guidance exceeded the firm's previous outlook. RBC added that Celgene's projection increases its confidence in the predictability of the drug maker's performance over the longer term. The firm recommended that investors own Celgene in 2015, noting that the company has the potential to settle its patent case with Actavis (ACT). A settlement would enable investors to focus on Celgene's visible long-term growth and the robust opportunity provided by its drugs in development, RBC stated. Historically, investors have not given Celgene credit for these strengths, the firm stated. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Celgene rose 1.5% to $115.35.

09:22 EDTPFE23andMe announces collaboration with Pfizer
Google (GOOG)-backed 23andMe announced an agreement with Pfizer (PFE) that will provide Pfizer with access to 23andMe’s research platform, including services and Research Portal analysis of 23andMe’s genotyped population of over 800,000 individuals, of which more than 80 percent have consented to participate in research. 23andMe’s Research Portal enables qualified and approved scientists outside of 23andMe the opportunity to leverage the company’s unique research model while still protecting the privacy and security of 23andMe’s customers. As a part of the agreement, the companies will collaborate on certain genome-wide association studies, surveys, and clinical trial recruitment. One of these collaborations will be a longitudinal study to better understand the genetics of lupus. This study will entail enrollment and genotyping of 5,000 people into a new lupus research community, and include the integration of medical records, targeted bio-sampling along with genetic information for all participants. This announcement follows a collaboration between 23andMe and Pfizer to enroll 10,000 people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease in a research initiative designed to explore the genetic factors associated with the onset, progression, severity and response to treatments for IBD. Nearly 4,000 patients have been enrolled in the community since August 2014.
