16:04 EDTARRYArray BioPharma to initiate Phase 3 trial evaluating MEK162
Array BioPharma announced that it will initiate a global Phase 3 clinical trial in patients with recurrent low-grade serous ovarian cancer during the summer of 2013. The study, called MILO, will evaluate the efficacy and safety of MEK162 compared to standard chemotherapy treatments and is designed for worldwide regulatory submissions, including with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Medicines Agency. Array invented MEK162 and licensed worldwide rights to develop and commercialize the drug to Novartis in April 2010. The MILO study follows a recent announcement by Novartis detailing plans to initiate Phase 3 trials of MEK162 in both NRAS- and BRAF-mutant melanoma and will be covered as part of the Novartis/Array co-development agreement under which costs are capped annually and in total for Array.

11:17 EDTARRYFTC puts conditions on Novartis's proposed acquisition of GSK oncology drugs
According to the FTC, Global pharmaceutical company Novartis (NVS) has agreed to divest all assets related to its BRAF and MEK inhibitor drugs, currently in development, to Boulder, Colorado-based Array BioPharma (ARRY) to settle charges that Novartis’s $16B acquisition of GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) portfolio of cancer-treatment drugs would likely be anticompetitive...If the acquisition goes forward as proposed, Novartis would likely delay or terminate development of both its BRAF and MEK inhibitors, as well as the combination product. For that reason, Novartis’s acquisition of GSK’s portfolio of cancer-treatment drugs would likely cause significant competitive harm in the U.S. markets for both the BRAF and MEK inhibitors, ultimately raising prices for consumers and depriving them of potentially superior products. Under the terms of the proposed consent agreement, Novartis is required to provide transitional services to Array BioPharma to ensure that development of the BRAF and MEK inhibitors continues uninterrupted and that competition in BRAF and MEK inhibitor markets is not reduced.
