09:02 EDTAMGNAmgen announces analysis results of Phase 3 trial of talimogene laherparepvec
Amgen announced top-line results from the primary overall survival analysis of a Phase 3 trial in melanoma, which evaluated the efficacy and safety of talimogene laherparepvec for the treatment of unresected stage IIIB, IIIC or IV melanoma compared to treatment with subcutaneous granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor. Results showed that, while the primary end point of durable response rate was met, the secondary endpoint of OS was not met, although there was a strong trend in favor of talimogene laherparepvec. The estimated OS hazard ratio and improvement in median OS were similar to what was previously reported at the interim OS analysis. The most frequent adverse events observed in this trial were fatigue, chills and pyrexia. The most common serious adverse events include disease progression, cellulitis and pyrexia.

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.
