05:18 EDTNVSNovartis announces new data confirms high efficacy of Gilenya in achieving NEDA
Novartis announced new analyses presented at the Joint ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Meeting in Boston, USA, which confirmed the high efficacy of Gilenya in achieving 'no evidence of disease activity', or NEDA, in people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, or RRMS, across four key disease measures - relapses, MRI lesions, brain shrinkage and disability progression. Specifically, patients taking Gilenya had a more than four-times greater likelihood of achieving NEDA across these four key measures. NEDA is currently defined as having no relapses, MRI lesions and disability progression. These new analyses from the phase III FREEDOMS and FREEDOMS II trials reinforce the value of including brain shrinkage to the definition of NEDA. The inclusion of brain shrinkage into the NEDA definition would allow physicians to obtain a more complete assessment of a patient's disease, including the underlying damage in MS.

12:14 EDTACTCSEC announces fraud charges against Advanced Cell Tech, former CEO
The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged a Massachusetts-based biotech company and its former CEO with defrauding investors by failing to report his sales of company stock.The federal securities laws require certain corporate executives to report their transactions in the companyís stock in order to give investors the opportunity to evaluate whether the purchases and sales by an insider could be indicative of the prospects of the company. An SEC investigation found that after Gary H. Rabin became CEO, CFO, and chairman of Advanced Cell Technology in 2010, he repeatedly failed to report his sales of company stock for the next few years. Subsequently, ACTís annual reports and proxy statements during that period were inaccurate because they failed to report that Rabin was not complying with his obligation to disclose his substantial sales of ACT stock. ACT and Rabin agreed to settle the SECís charges.

07:55 EDTNVSOphthotech earlier than expected Novartis payment positive, says Oppenheimer
After Ophthotech (OPHT) received a $50M Phase 3 enrollment payment from Novartis (NVS) earlier than expected, Oppenheimer thinks the payment highlights an underappreciated stock driver for Opthotech, and demonstrates that recent suggestions of Phase 3 enrollment timelines possibly slipping are unwarranted. The firm believes the company is executing well on the Fovista Phase 3 program and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

05:43 EDTPSTIPluristem Therapeutics advances to second cohort in PLX-PAD cells Phase I trial
Pluristem Therapeutics announced that its licensee, United Therapeutics Corporation, has completed the dosing of the first cohort of patients in its Phase I study using Pluristem's PLacental eXpanded, or PLX-PAD, cells in patients diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension, or PAH. PAH, with a global market estimated at approximately $3B, is characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs; it can disrupt lung and heart function, leading to debilitating conditions such as heart failure. The Phase I study, being conducted in Australia, is an open-label, dose-escalation study designed to enroll 9 patients diagnosed with PAH. The first cohort of 3 patients has received 0.5M PLX cells per kilogram body weight. An independent Data Safety Monitoring Board recommended advancement to the second cohort. The second cohort will receive 1M cells per kilogram, while the third cohort is planned to be administered 2M cells per kilogram. The primary endpoint of the study is the safety of PLX-PAD cells, which will be evaluated at 12 weeks and one year after dosing. Secondary efficacy endpoints are to be measured at six weeks post-treatment in order to assess changes in the ability to exercise, disease severity and cardio-respiratory function; measures include six-minute walk distance and cardio-pulmonary hemodynamic parameters evaluated via right heart catheterization and echocardiogram.
