13:51 EDTAMGNAmgen presents analysis showing AMG 145 significantly reduced LDL cholestrol
Amgen announced treatment with AMG 145 resulted in significant reductions in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C, or "bad" cholesterol, of up to 59% in an efficacy analysis of pooled data from four 12-week Phase 2 studies evaluating AMG 145 in patient populations with high cholesterol. AMG 145 is an investigational human monoclonal antibody that inhibits PCSK9, a protein that reduces the liver's ability to remove LDL-C from the blood. Amgen presented the data at the ESC Congress 2013, organized by the European Society of Cardiology, in Amsterdam. Elevated LDL-C is recognized as a major risk factor for cardiovascular, CV, disease.Despite the availability of various treatments to lower LDL-C, it is estimated that in two-thirds of treated, high-risk patients, LDL-C is not well-controlled.

07:03 EDTAMGNCelgene leaps forward in immuno-oncology with Juno deal, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said that Celgene (CELG) effectively spent $1B to buy into adoptive T cell therapy and own all of Juno Therapeutics' (JUNO) opportunities outside the U.S., leaping the company into a leading position in the immuno-oncology space. Schimmer additionally thinks Celgene's transaction should help boost investor confidence about the utility and value of CAR and TCR therapies, noting that he sees Bellicum Pharmaceuticals (BLCM), Cellectis (CLLS), Lion Biotechnologies (LBIO), bluebird bio (BLUE) and the Amgen (AMGN)-Kite Pharma (KITE) partnership as best positioned to compete in this rapidly advancing field. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating and $144 price target on Celgene.
