05:39 EDTMDTSt. Jude Medical downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo downgraded St. Jude Medical (STJ) to Market Perform saying competitive pressures will drive 2015 market share losses in the company's cardiac rhythm management business, which represents 50% of total sales. Wells believes the launch of CardioMEMS will not be strong enough to offset the headwinds in CRM unit. The firm thinks Boston Scientific's (BSX) earlier than expected approval for its next generation subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator called Emblem will drive share gains against St. Jude and Medtronic (MDT) in the single chamber ICD market. Wells cut its price target range for St. Jude shares to $69-$70 from $73-$74. The medical technology company closed yesterday down $2.01 to $65.45.

13:16 EDTMDTAnalysts upbeat on results of Edwards' Sapien 3 data
The shares of Edwards Lifesciences (EW) are rising after the company released data on its Sapien 3 transcathter aortic valve over the weekend. In notes to investors today, a number of analysts were upbeat on the data. BACKGROUND: Edwards yesterday announced that high- and intermediate-risk patients treated with Sapien 3 demonstrated lower mortality rates than patients treated with previous transcathter aortic valves, or TAVR, made by the company. The patients also had excellent clinical outcomes in the other primary endpoints of stroke and paravalvular regurgitation, the company stated. Meanwhile, a five year study of patients treated with the first generation SAPIEN device showed that the patients had equivalent outcomes to traditional open-heart surgery, and no structural valve deterioration requiring intervention, the company stated. ANALYST REACTION: Edwards' Sapien 3 data was impressive, as the device showed one of the lowest stroke and mortality rates of any major TAVR study so far, Bernstein analyst Derrick Sung wrote in a note to investors earlier today. Data presented by Edwards and other companies at the American College of Cardiology, or ACC, conference this weekend caused investors and the medical community to become more optimistic about the potential for TAVR devices to replace surgical valves, Sung stated. The analyst wrote that he continues to believe that investors are underestimating the potential size of the TAVR market. Also upbeat on Edwards' data was Wells Fargo, which wrote that the data exceeded high expectations and could pressure the FDA to approve Sapien 3 for intermediate risk patients earlier than Edwards' guidance of late 2016. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Analysts were also upbeat on data reported by other companies at the ACC conference. Medtronic's (MDT) data suggested that its CoreValve Evolut-R product may be as effective as Edwards' Sapien 3, Bernstein's Sung stated. The FDA appears to have allowed Boston Scientific's (BSX) left atrial appendage closure, Watchman, to be provided to more patients than expected, research firm Stifel believes. Meanwhile, St. Jude's (STJ) CardioMEMS device yielded "impressive" mortality data, the firm added. Stifel kept Buy ratings on both Medtronic and St. Jude. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Edwards Lifesciences climbed 9% to $147.64, Boston Scientific advanced 4% to $17.27, St. Jude added 2% to $67.55, and Medtronic rose 1.3% to $77.50.

15:20 EDTMDTMedtronic announces outcomes for its next-generation CoreValve Evolut R System
Medtronic announced initial clinical outcomes for its next-generation CoreValve Evolut R System. At 30-days, the new recapturable, self-expanding valve showed no incidents of all-cause mortality or stroke in a high and extreme risk patient population. Data from the Evolut R Study, which enrolled 60 patients from six centers in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand, were unveiled today at the 64th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology. The CoreValve Evolut R System is not approved for commercial use in the United States where it is currently undergoing clinical trials. "Initial clinical experience with the Evolut R system is remarkable and ushers in a new era of TAVR technology that provides increased confidence with recapturability, excellent procedural results, and impressive clinical outcomes," said Ian Meredith, M.D., of Monash Heart - Monash Health, Melbourne, Australia, who is one of the investigators of the study. "The 14 French equivalent delivery system allowed transfemoral access for most patients and the recapturable technology enabled implanters to optimize valve placement for improved annular sealing and reduced conduction disturbances without compromise on mortality or stroke."

09:02 EDTBAXBaxter announces phase III trial of BAX 817 met primary endpoint
Baxter International announced positive results from its Phase III clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of BAX 817, an investigational recombinant factor VIIa treatment for people with hemophilia A or B who develop inhibitors. The prospective, open-label, randomized, multicenter trial was designed to assess the safety and efficacy of BAX 817 in male patients ages 12 to 65 with hemophilia A or B with inhibitors over a 6-month period using on-demand therapy. The trial met its primary endpoint of successful resolution of acute bleeding episodes at 12 hours with both on-demand treatment regimens, dosing either 3x90 g/kg or 1x270 g/kg, with an overall success rate of 92% -- 98% and 85% in each dosing group, respectively. Further, 89% of patients in the trial achieved sustained bleeding control for all acute bleeding episodes 24 hours after infusion. No patients developed inhibitors or binding antibodies to BAX 817, and none discontinued treatment due to an adverse event. One patient was hospitalized following a traumatic muscle bleed that did not respond to BAX 817. Non-serious AEs observed in the trial were generally consistent with the underlying disease or other etiology, and were all deemed to be unrelated to treatment. Full data from the trial, including additional efficacy and safety outcomes, will be presented at a medical meeting later in 2015. The company plans to initiate regulatory submissions aligned to manufacturing expansions currently underway.

Medtronic announced the start of its Resolute Onyx Clinical Program in the United States, which will evaluate the Resolute Onyx drug-eluting stent in patients who have coronary artery disease. Included in the first phase of the study are patients with small vessels that would require a 2.0 mm stent, which until now, often were untreatable with a DES. Core sizes of the stent will be studied separately.
