BP (BP) has made a $8 per share takeover bid for Penn Virginia (PVA), but the latter rejected the bid and is "holding out" for at least $10 per share, UK investor blog Proactive Investors claimed, citing people familiar with the matter. ExxonMobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) may also be interested in buying Penn Virginia, according to Proactive, which identifies itself as a "leading multi-media news organisation, investor portal and events management business." Penn Virginia shares are up 7% in midday trading following the report from the blog, which was previously credited for a report on alleged takeover advances made toward drugmaker Receptos (RCPT).

06:07 EDTLLYEli Lilly reports UK court rules in favor of Lilly in Alimta vitamin patent suit
Eli Lilly announced that the Court of Appeal has ruled that the Alimta vitamin regimen patent would be indirectly infringed by a generic competitor that had stated its intent to market certain alternative salt forms of pemetrexed in the United Kingdom prior to the UK patent's expiration in June 2021. Specifically, the Court of Appeal held that commercialization of these alternative salt forms in the products as proposed would constitute indirect infringement by supplying an essential means for putting the patented invention into effect. The decision came in the case of Actavis v. Eli Lilly and Company. The Court of Appeal also held there was no difference between the law in the UK and that in France, Italy and Spain as it relates to indirect infringement, and so reversed the High Court's decision granting declarations of noninfringement over the Alimta vitamin regimen patents in those countries. Actavis may seek permission to appeal the decision to the UK Supreme Court. In addition, Actavis has stated it may ask the High Court to decide whether a different proposed product would infringe the patent. The Court of Appeal has ruled that the High Court will need to decide whether it will hear this new claim. If the High Court decides to hear Actavis' case on the different proposed product, Lilly will defend the case vigorously. In Europe, the compound patents for Alimta remain in force and are expected to provide exclusivity through December 2015. This decision increases the likelihood that the vitamin regimen patents for Alimta will provide exclusivity in the UK, France, Italy and Spain through June 2021.

13:23 EDTPFEPfizer says CDC committee votes to recommend MenB vaccine
Pfizer announced that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to recommend that decisions to vaccinate adolescents and young adults 16 through 23 years of age against serogroup B meningococcal disease should be made at the individual level with healthcare providers. It added, "Specifically, the ACIP voted that a serogroup B meningococcal vaccine series may be administered to adolescents and young adults 16 through 23 years of age to provide short term protection against most strains of serogroup B meningococcal disease. The preferred age for MenB vaccination is 16 through 18 years of age." Pfizer's Trumenba is FDA-approved for active immunization to prevent invasive disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B in individuals 10 through 25 years of age. The ACIP recommendation will be forwarded to the director of the CDC and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for review and approval, Pfizer said.
