16:45 EDTANTH, LLYAnthera Pharmaceuticals acquires Sollpura from Eli Lilly
Anthera Pharmaceuticals (ANTH) announced that it has acquired Sollpura, a novel investigational Pancreatic Enzyme Replacement Therapy from Eli Lilly and Company (LLY). Sollpura is a soluble, stable and non-porcine enzyme product intended for the treatment of patients with low digestive enzyme levels, or Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency, due to cystic fibrosis, and potentially other diseases. EPI is characterized by low absorption of fat and other nutrients due to a reduction in digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas. EPI is a major cause of serious nutritional deficiencies and long-term development issues, particularly in children with cystic fibrosis. EPI is estimated to afflict more than 150,000 patients in the United States alone, with more than US$600M spent on enzyme replacement therapy annually. Anthera intends to sublicense all rights, obligations, and intellectual property for the development and commercialization of Sollpura to Alkira Therapeutics. In the future, Alkira will secure appropriate funding as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Anthera to advance Sollpura into a phase 3 pivotal registration trial as agreed with the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2013. It is intended that Alkira will make all future contingent milestone payments under the license agreement upon product approval and on certain annual sales achievements and will make royalty payments on any product sales after achieving certain sales thresholds of cumulative net sales of Sollpura.

07:35 EDTLLYPerrigo potential buyers list could be limited, says Jefferies
After Globes reported that Perrigo retained an investment bank to assist with a potential merger, Jefferies says the list of potential buyers could be limited since the store brand business is fundamentally a high volume, lower margin model. The firm notes U.S. companies that currently do not have large over-the-counter divisions include Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Merck (MRK). Jefferies views the merger speculation surrounding Perrigo as not surprising given the company's strong long-term fundamentals and attractive Irish domicile. It has a Buy rating on the stock with a $160 price target.
05:47 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces results from five datasets from Alzheimer's disease study
Eli Lilly announced results from an analyses of five datasets evaluating the relationship between cognitive and functional impairment in patients with mild Alzheimer's disease in the natural course of the disease. Analysis findings demonstrate that cognitive deficits predict subsequent functional deficits and suggest that cognitive decline experienced by patients is followed by an observable related decline in function, consistent with previously proposed hypotheses. These data were presented today at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark as part of the featured research session, "Statistics in the Race against Alzheimer's Disease." Hong Liu-Seifert, Ph.D., study research advisor at Eli Lilly stated, "These data support the concept that decline in cognition is later reflected in changes in function. This suggests that with treatments that target the underlying neuropathology of disease, effects on function may take longer to observe in clinical studies. Currently available scales were not developed to assess subtle functional changes or treatment effects on these deficits in patients with early or mild Alzheimer's disease, and there is debate as to how much variability exists in these scales globally. Therefore, we support discussion of alternative ways to demonstrate clinical meaningfulness in early or mild Alzheimer's disease."
