06:41 EDTARRY, NVSArray BioPharma shares attractive at current levels, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray says shares of Array BioPharma are attractive at current levels ahead of Phase III data readouts for binimetinib in melanoma, selumetinib in Kras-mutant lung, thyroid and uveal melanoma, and filanesib in multiple myeloma. Piper sees the biggest overhang on Array shares as being the financing requirement and it notes that binimetinib could be returned to the company from current partner Novartis (NVS). Nonetheless, it feels investors should take a "serious look" at Array and keeps an Overweight rating on the stock with a $9 price target.

13:58 EDTARRYPiper cuts Array target by only 50c after failed trial
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff says selumetinib for Uveal Melanoma is a small indication and represented only a small part of his valuation for Array BioPharma (ARRY). As such, after partner AstraZeneca (AZN) announced that selumetinib failed in the Phase III trial, the analyst cut his price target for Array by only 50c to $14.50. The primary drivers for Array remain binimetinib and encorafenib in NRAS and BRAF melanoma and low-grade serous ovarian cancer, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He keeps an Overweight rating on the stock.

05:12 EDTARRYAstraZeneca says Phase 3 study of selumetinib did not meet primary endpoint
AstraZeneca (AZN) announced that the Phase 3 SUMIT study of selumetinib in combination with dacarbazine for the treatment of patients with metastatic uveal melanoma did not meet its primary endpoint of progression free survival. This combination therapy showed an adverse event profile generally consistent with current knowledge of the safety profiles of dacarbazine and selumetinib. A full evaluation of the data is ongoing. Selumetinib is a MEK inhibitor in late-stage development, with a primary Phase 3 program in second-line KRAS-mutant advanced non-small cell lung cancer in combination with docetaxel. Selumetinib is also being investigated in a Phase 3 study in differentiated thyroid cancer and in a Phase 2 registration study in patients with neurofibromatosis Type 1. Selumetinib is an oral small molecule MEK inhibitor invented by Array BioPharma (ARRY) and licensed to AstraZeneca in 2003.
