08:04 EDTAGIO, CELGAgios says Celgene exercised option to license AG-221
Agios Pharmaceuticals (AGIO) announced that its partner Celgene (CELG) has exercised its option to an exclusive worldwide license to AG-221, an oral, first-in-class, potent inhibitor of the mutant IDH2 protein. Under the terms of the agreement, the option to license extended to Celgene through the end of Phase 1, but AG-221 has been exercised early based on the Phase 1 data generated to date. AG-221 is currently in a Phase 1 dose escalation study in patients that harbor an IDH2 mutation with advanced hematologic malignancies, including acute myeloid leukemia. Agios and Celgene entered into a global strategic collaboration in April 2010 to develop new therapeutics targeting cancer metabolism. By exercising its exclusive option under the terms of the agreement, Celgene gains worldwide development and commercialization rights for AG-221. Agios, in addition to contributing its scientific and translational expertise, will continue to conduct early clinical development and regulatory activities within the AG-221 development program in collaboration with Celgene. Celgene is responsible for all development costs for AG-221. Agios is eligible for up to $120 million in milestone payments and a tiered royalty on any net sales. Agios also has the right to conduct a portion of any commercialization activities for AG-221 in the United States. AG-221 is part of Agiosí IDH portfolio that also includes the IDH1 mutant inhibitor AG-120, which the company continues to develop and is in Phase 1 clinical trials in advanced solid tumors and hematologic malignancies. Agios retains U.S. rights to the IDH1 program, and Celgene has an exclusive option to ex-U.S. rights for the program. Agios continues to advance its discovery and research of cancer metabolism targets.

08:19 EDTCELGCelgene GED301 drug has positive risk/reward ratio in near-term, says Bernstein
Bernstein believes that the upcoming trial of Celgene's GED0301 drug for Crohn's disease has very little risk in the near-term, while the presentation of results of a study of the drug next month should be positive for the stock. The firm thinks that the drug could emerge as a popular combination partner for other systemic drugs in patients who continue to have disease symptoms. Bernstein is more cautious about the drug's outlook starting in 2016 but keeps a $103 price target and Outperform rating on the stock.
