Jefferies believes Auxilium (AUXL) could be worth more than the $28.10 per share offer by Endo (ENDP). The firm says it can get to valuations of $34-$45 per share for Auxilium under a takeout scenario. Jefferies thinks proposed acquisition cost "leaves considerable value on the table." It keeps a Buy rating on Auxilium with a $34 price target. In pre-open trading, Auxilium is trading well above Endo's offer price at $30.26 per share, up 41% or $8.74.

09:32 EDTABTAbbott initiates ABSORB IV trial
Abbott announced the start of the ABSORB IV clinical trial, which will test whether its Absorb Bioresorbable Vascular Scaffold is more cost-effective and offers a higher quality of life than a permanent, metallic drug eluting stent. Unlike a metallic stent, Absorb completely dissolves over time after doing its job. ABSORB IV is designed to enroll approximately 3K people with coronary artery disease, mostly in the U.S. The ABSORB IV trial is designed to confirm these novel findings that treatment with the Absorb device can help provide people with heart disease a higher quality of life after a heart stent procedure. The data from the ABSORB IV trial will be combined with the data from the ABSORB III trial to create a population of more than 5K people studied in the U.S. This data set, which is the largest of its kind for bioresorbable heart devices, provides an opportunity to evaluate the performance of Absorb compared to the current standard of a metallic drug eluting stent across a number of measures, including the broader health economic impact of this innovative therapy.

07:04 EDTCOVCovidien announces start of enrollment in two neurovascular trials
Covidien announced the start of enrollment in two clinical trials designed to further underscore the safety and effectiveness of the company’s advanced neurovascular solutions. Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida, treated the first patient enrolled in the PREMIER Prospective study, an international Investigational Device Exemption clinical study to evaluate the Pipeline embolization device in smaller unruptured intracranial aneurysms. Separately, Baptist Health Lexington in Kentucky, enrolled the first patient in the STRATIS Registry for Endovascular Stroke Devices, which will evaluate the use of all Covidien market-released stroke devices. The PREMIER study will enroll up to 141 patients in 20 global sites and is designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of the Pipeline device in the treatment of unruptured, small and medium wide-necked intracranial aneurysms. The STRATIS Registry, a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, observational registry designed to evaluate the use of Covidien endovascular stroke devices in patients diagnosed with an acute ischemic stroke. Covidien’s current endovascular stroke device in the U.S. is the Solitaire™ 2 revascularization device. As many as 60 U.S. sites are expected to participate in the STRATIS Registry, which will enroll up to 1,000 patients to collect clinical outcomes for interventional stroke patients in a real world setting.

10:32 EDTACTPfizer CEO says company still open to inversion deal, FT says
Pfizer (PFE) CEO Ian Read said U.S. rhetoric against tax inversions has been "political theater" ahead of midterm elections and made clear that his company is still open to a potential tax-saving acquisition, according to Financial Times, which added Read's comment about not being “held hostage” over price would likely be read as a signal the company might look elsewhere after being rebuffed by AstraZeneca (AZN). The Fly notes that Bloomberg previously reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Pfizer is looking at targets other than AstraZeneca, including Actavis (ACT). Shares of Actavis trading in New York are up 2% this morning. Reference Link

08:06 EDTTEVATeva presents new clinical safety data in RRMS patients treated with Laquinimod
Teva (TEVA) and Active Biotech (ACTI) announced new follow-up data evaluating the clinical safety of laquinimod in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, or RRMS, who were treated with laquinimod in Phase II, Phase III and open-label extension studies for two or more years. The pooled safety analysis of the Phase II LAQ/5063 and the Phase III ALLEGRO and BRAVO extension studies supports findings observed in the core studies where currently identified risks were observed within the first months of laquinimod treatment. In the pooled safety analysis, rates of adverse events, or AEs, and serious AEs were lower in the open-label extensions than in the core studies and less than three percent of patients discontinued treatment due to AEs during these extensions. Additionally, shifts to potentially significant laboratory values were considerably lower in patients exposed to at least two years of laquinimod.
