08:16 EDTBAXMerrimack data of Phase 3 MM-398 NAPOLI-1 study supports development programs
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals (MACK) announced that additional analyses were presented on January 16, 2015 from the Phase 3 NAPOLI-1 study of MM-398, also known as nal-IRI, in patients with metastatic pancreatic cancer previously treated with gemcitabine-based therapy. Merrimack and Baxter International's (BAX) biopharmaceutical business are collaborating on the development and commercialization of MM-398 outside of the United States and Taiwan. PharmaEngine holds the rights to commercialize MM-398 in Taiwan. Additionally, Merrimack presented preclinical and clinical data from studies of its investigational agents MM-141 and MM-151 in pancreatic and colorectal cancer, respectively. An investigator-sponsored study of MM-398 in colorectal cancer was also presented. The extended analyses for the global NAPOLI-1 Phase 3 trial presented at ASCO GI support the robustness of the overall survival benefit of MM-398 in combination with 5-fluorouracil, or 5-FU, and leucovorin presented in June 2014, at the European Society for Medical Oncology World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancer, or ESMO GI. The primary analysis, presented at ESMO GI, demonstrated a statistically significant advantage in overall survival with an unstratified hazard ratio of 0.67, and a median of 6.1 months for the combination of MM-398 plus 5-FU and leucovorin compared to 4.2 months in the control arm.

07:39 EDTARIAARIAD announces key strategic objectives for 2015
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals announced its key strategic objectives for 2015, details of which will be presented at the 33rd Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference on January 14, 2015 in San Francisco, California. These objectives are focused on expanded commercial, research and development, and new business development initiatives that together are expected to lead ARIAD to sustained profitability beginning in 2018 without the need for additional equity capital to fund its operations. ARIAD management will provide detail on its corporate strategy for the next several years. This new focus includes: Expanding the global commercial opportunity for Iclusig through a Japan/Asia partnership with Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., and additional regional distributorships, Leveraging its existing commercial infrastructure and investment, particularly in Europe, Securing a broad co-development and co-commercialization partnership for brigatinib, or AP26113, that will accelerate the study of brigatinib in earlier lines of treatment, Investing in three randomized clinical trials to evaluate Iclusig in earlier lines of treatment and potentially to expand its addressable market, Advancing its new development candidate, AP32788, into the clinic, and Achieving sustained profitability in 2018 by reaching global product revenue of more than $400M. Three key Iclusig clinical trials will begin in 2015 including a randomized, Phase 3 trial in patients with chronic-phase CML who have experienced failure after imatinib therapy. This second-line, global trial will evaluate two doses of Iclusig vs. the standard dose of nilotinib. The primary endpoint of the trial will be major molecular response by 12 months. The trial is expected to open to patient enrollment in the second half of 2015 and will be integral to potentially expanding Iclusig into earlier lines of treatment. We expect that approximately 500 patients will be enrolled in this trial. ARIAD says "In a major strategic shift for ARIAD, we expect to secure a broad partnership in 2015 to co-develop and co-commercialize brigatinib. In doing so, we will continue to leverage our existing infrastructure and capabilities, allowing us to accelerate the start of a randomized, first-line trial of brigatinib vs. crizotinib. A partnership will also provide for the exploration of new combination therapies in lung cancer that include brigatinib potentially with other approved and unapproved medicines." The company comments, "We expect to achieve profitability in 2018 through revenue growth and strategic partnerships over the next three years. This includes Iclusig revenue growth in the U.S. and in Europe, as well as Iclusig revenue from Japan and new geographies. We also anticipate increased cash flow from brigatinib revenue and partnership payments during this time period. We expect approval of Iclusig in Canada and Israel in 2015 and in Japan in 2016."
