14:08 EDTARIAARIAD slumps after FDA requires warning on newly approved drug
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals (ARIA) is retreating after the company said that the FDA had approved the company's leukemia treatment, but will require it to include a warning on the drug's box. The warning will state that the drug, Iclusig, can cause blood clots and liver toxicity, ARIAD disclosed earlier today. In a note to investors, Citigroup wrote that the Street had not expected the company to be forced to issue such a warning. The firm, however, views the FDA's decision to grant accelerated approval to the drug as positive and it maintains a Buy rating on the stock. In mid-afternoon trading, ARIAD fell $2.33, or 9.76%, to $21.55.

07:36 EDTARIAARIAD anounces results of preclinical studies on Brigatinib at AACR meeting
ARIAD Pharmaceuticals announced the results of a series of preclinical studies on its investigational tyrosine kinase inhibitor, brigatinib at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2015. Brigatinib is in development for the treatment of patients with anaplastic lymphoma kinase positive metastatic non-small cell lung cancer, who are resistant to crizotinib. An oral presentation describes, for the first time, the design and chemical structure of brigatinib, discovered using ARIADís structure-based drug design platform. With the goal of designing a selective ALK inhibitor with broad-based activity against crizotinib-resistant mutants, ARIAD scientists advanced a series of novel compounds culminating in the identification of brigatinib. Brigatinib incorporates unique chemical-design features, including the distinctive use of a recognition element that confers favorable pharmacologic properties. Brigatinib has at least 10-fold greater potency than crizotinib against ALK+ NSCLC cell lines and was broadly active against clinically relevant crizotinib-resistant mutants in preclinical models. A poster presentation shows that brigatinib, at clinically achievable concentrations, has potent anti-tumor activity against a panel of 17 distinct ALK mutants known to confer resistance to other ALK inhibitors. In a separate study designed to model the occurrence of brain metastases in ALK+ lung cancer patients, brigatinib significantly reduced the tumor burden in mice with ALK+ brain tumors compared to the tumors in mice treated with crizotinib. Survival of brigatinib-treated mice was also markedly enhanced compared to the survival duration of crizotinib-treated mice.
