07:40 EDTANACAnacor completes AN2728 ointment End-of-Phase 2 meeting with FDA
Anacor Pharmaceuticals announced that it has successfully completed an End-of-Phase 2 meeting with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the topical treatment of mild-to-moderate atopic dermatitis with AN2728 ointment. Anacor will also initiate a long-term safety trial to evaluate the safety of intermittent use of AN2728 Ointment, 2% for up to 12 months. Subjects who complete either Phase 3 trial will have the option to roll into the long-term safety trial until approximately 500 subjects are enrolled. At least 100 subjects will be enrolled for 12 months and at least 300 subjects will be enrolled for 6 months, during which time subjects will be treated as needed under the direction of the investigator. AN2728 has demonstrated safety and efficacy in 14 other Phase 1 and Phase 2 studies. In all studies, AN2728 was generally considered safe and well-tolerated. Most adverse events were mild and largely unrelated to study drug.

09:24 EDTANACJefferies sees Pharma M&A continuing, lists 22 possible targets
Jefferies analyst David Steinberg believes the M&A wave in the Pharmaceuticals space that began in 2005 can continue as the key drivers remain largely intact. In a note titled "Who is Next? The Feeding Frenzy in Specialty Pharmaceuticals," Steinberg sees deals continuing amid cheap debt, the push for lower corporate taxes and investors rewarding many acquirers for their transactions. He points out there are now around 100 publicly traded Specialty Pharmaceutical companies following the recent life sciences IPO boom. Potential takeover targets, according to Steinberg, include Valeant (VRX), Shire (SHPG), Perrigo (PRGO), Zoetis (ZTS), Mallinckrodt (MNK), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ), United Therapeutics (UTHR), Pacira (PCRX), Indivior, Insys Therapeutics (INSY), The Medicines Co. (MDCO), Depomed (DEPO), Spectrum (SPPI), KYTHERA (KYTH), Revance (RVNC), XenoPort (XNPT), Mylan (MYL), Akorn (AKRX), Impax (IPXL), Amphastar Pharmaceuticals (AMPH), Anacor (ANAC) and BioDelivery Sciences (BDSI).
