InterMune (ITMN) is working with its financial advisers Goldman Sachs (GS) and Centerview Partners to evaluate takeover bids it has received from Sanofi (SNY), Roche (RHHBY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Actelion (ALIOF), said Bloomberg, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The report noted that one of the sources said Sanofi has so far shown the most interest in a deal for InterMune, whose shares are up more than 13% to $51.56 following the first headlines from the report.

08:31 EDTAZNAstraZeneca says Phase 3 trials of lesinurad for gout met primary endpoints
AstraZeneca announced top-line results from CLEAR1, CLEAR2 and CRYSTAL, the pivotal Phase III clinical trials investigating the potential of lesinurad, a selective uric acid re-absorption inhibitor, as a combination therapy for the treatment of patients with symptomatic gout. Lesinurad is an investigational agent that inhibits the URAT1 transporter, increasing uric acid excretion and thereby lowering serum uric acid. In the CLEAR1 and CLEAR2 trials, both lesinurad 200mg and 400mg in combination with allopurinol met the primary endpoint, with a statistically significant higher proportion of patients reaching the target sUA goal of <6.0mg/dL at month 6 compared to allopurinol alone. In the CRYSTAL trial, lesinurad 400mg in combination with febuxostat met the primary endpoint, with a statistically significant higher proportion of patients reaching the target sUA goal of <5.0mg/dL at month 6 compared to febuxostat alone. Although lesinurad 200mg did not achieve statistical significance at month 6, this dose in combination with febuxostat, was superior to placebo plus febuxostat at all other time points. Results from these Phase III clinical trials will be submitted to a scientific meeting later in 2014. The company is proceeding with preparation of regulatory submissions for lesinurad 200mg combination therapy.

14:05 EDTRHHBYPTC Therapeutics reports publication of preclinical study results in SMA models
PTC Therapeutics (PTCT) announced that he journal Science published results of a preclinical study demonstrating that treatment with orally available RNA splicing modifiers of the SMN2 gene starting early after birth is preventing deficits in mouse models of Spinal Muscular Atrophy or SMA. Stuart Peltz, CEO of PTC Therapeutics, said, "Using the experience and expertise in RNA biology we have gained at PTC over the last 16 years, we used our alternative splicing technology to identify and subsequently optimize investigational compounds that target the SMN2 splicing to produce the SMN protein. Our unique partnership with Roche and the SMA Foundation has allowed this project to rapidly move into clinical development." Luca Santarelli, Head of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology and Rare Diseases at Roche (RHHBY), said, "Although still preclinical, these results demonstrate how SMN2 splicing modifiers could correct the molecular deficit that causes SMA. This study represents an important step towards developing a potential therapeutic option for this devastating and currently untreatable condition. Early clinical trials are currently underway to determine the safety and tolerability of this approach."
