The U.S. court of appeals for the federal circuit overturned a lower court ruling related to Allergan's (AGN) patents for Latisse, a treatment for eyelash loss. Several companies, including Actavis (ACT) and Novartis' (NVS) Sandoz unit, appealed a lower court ruling that said they'd infringed Allergan's patents. The appeals court sided with the appealing companies and reversed the district court's findings with respect to the validity of the patents held by Allergan and Duke University. Reference Link

15:14 EDTACTActavis to appeal injunction requiring Namenda IR distribution
Actavis confirmed that it is filing an emergency appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit seeking to immediately overturn a lower court ruling requiring the company to continue distribution of NAMENDA immediate-release tablets after Judge Robert Sweet of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York issued a preliminary injunction requiring Actavis to continue distribution of NAMENDA immediate-release tablets on Monday, December 15. Actavis reiterated that the ruling will have no impact on its ability to continue focusing its resources on transitioning patients to the convenient and innovative once-daily NAMENDA XR, and that the company is prepared to manage its business in a way that provides the least disruption in its ability to support the marketplace and minimize any financial impact. Further, the company noted that it will work to manage sales and R&D expenses to ensure that, if the District Court decision stands, it will have minimal to no impact on Actavis' 2015 NAMENDA franchise contribution to earnings and longer term company earnings aspirations.

13:07 EDTNVSNovartis announces data from Jakavi trial
Novartis (NVS) announced data from the largest clinical trial of myelofibrosis patients treated with Jakavi, supporting the safety profile and efficacy benefit as measured in primary and secondary endpoints respectively. In an analysis of 1,144 patients treated with Jakavi to date in this ongoing expanded access study, 69% of patients achieved >50% reduction in spleen size from baseline and patients also experienced a clinically meaningful improvement in myelofibrosis symptom score, important treatment goals for patients with myelofibrosis. Findings from the study were presented at the 56th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco, California. Novartis research and development efforts, in collaboration with Incyte Corporation (INCY), include early-phase and post-marketing studies in myelofibrosis and other myeloproliferative neoplasms. More than 50 abstracts on ruxolitinib are being presented at ASH, including three oral presentations exploring combinations of ruxolitinib with various investigational compounds, evaluating the possibility of simultaneously targeting multiple cancer pathways that may be involved in the pathogenesis of myelofibrosis. The JUMP study is a Phase IIIb, expanded-access trial for countries with no access to Jakavi outside of a clinical trial. The open-label, multicenter study analyzed 1,144 enrolled myelofibrosis patients who received daily starting doses of either 5 mg, 15 mg or 20 mg of Jakavi twice daily based on platelet counts at baseline. The primary endpoint is assessment of safety and tolerability of Jakavi. Overall, the safety and efficacy profile of Jakavi was consistent with previous studies.

05:42 EDTNVSSandoz Phase III data shows filgrastim has similar safety, efficacy as NEUPOGEN
Sandoz, a Novartis (NVS) company, announced Phase III data that demonstrated similarity of its investigational biosimilar filgrastim compared to the US-licensed reference product, Amgen's (AMGN) NEUPOGEN in the prevention of severe neutropenia in patients with breast cancer receiving neoadjuvant myelosuppressive chemotherapy. The study also showed that repeated switching at each cycle between the investigational biosimilar and the originator filgrastim showed no impact on efficacy, safety or immunogenicity. The PIONEER study was a Phase III study designed to compare the efficacy and safety of the investigational biosimilar and the reference product with respect to mean duration of severe neutropenia following Cycle 1 chemotherapy. PIONEER was a randomized, double-blind, four-group, multi-center non-inferiority trial conducted at 27 centers. The trial randomized 218 breast cancer patients receiving neoadjuvant myelosuppressive chemotherapy.

16:49 EDTACTAdvisory Committee recommends approval Of Actavis' ceftazidime-avibactam
Actavis announced that the Anti-Infective Drugs Advisory Committee convened by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has voted to recommend approval of Actavis' New Drug Application for ceftazidime-avibactam, an investigational antibiotic being developed to treat hospitalized patients when limited or no treatment options are available for complicated intra-abdominal infections and complicated urinary tract infections caused by Gram-negative pathogens. The committee found the scientific and clinical evidence submitted by Cerexa, a wholly owned subsidiary of Actavis, adequately demonstrated the safety and efficacy of ceftazidime-avibactam in the treatment of the proposed cIAI and cUTI indications. The committee voted not to recommend approval of the combination for hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia /ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia and bacteremia.The Advisory Committee recommendation is not binding on the FDA, which makes the final decision regarding approval. Actavis expects FDA action on its NDA for ceftazidime-avibactam during the first quarter of 2015.
