AstraZeneca (AZN) and Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) announced the FDA approved Farxiga, a once-daily oral treatment indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Farxiga should not be used for the treatment of patients with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.

12:12 EDTAZNMyriad Genetics receives FDA approval of BRACAnalysis CDx
Myriad Genetics (MYGN) announced that it has received approval from the U.S. FDA for BRACAnalysis CDx to be used as the only companion diagnostic in conjunction with AstraZeneca's (AZN) drug Lynparza. Lynparza is the first poly ADP-ribose polymerase inhibitor for patients with germline mutations in BRCA1/2 advanced ovarian cancer who have had three or more lines of chemotherapy. BRACAnalysis CDx is Myriad's first FDA-approved companion diagnostic for use with a novel PARP inhibitor. BRACAnalysis CDx is a highly accurate molecular companion diagnostic test that identifies deleterious or suspected deleterious mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, using DNA obtained from a blood sample. BRACAnalysis CDx was proven in clinical studies to effectively identify patients with BRCA mutations who would be candidates for Lynparza. The approval of BRACAnalysis CDx demonstrates Myriad's commitment to developing companion diagnostics and is the culmination of an intensive, multiyear scientific collaboration with AstraZeneca to advance personalized medicine for women with ovarian cancer.

13:32 EDTBMYPfizer, Bristol-Myers announce results of human study on Eliquis
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY) and Pfizer (PFE) announced results of the first human study evaluating the reversal of the anticoagulant effect of Eliquis by 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrates in healthy subjects. The study results demonstrated that both PCCs, Sanquin’s Cofact and CSL Behring’s Beriplex P/N reversed the steady-state pharmacodynamic effects of Eliquis in several coagulation assessments, including endogenous thrombin potential. The full data will be presented today during the Antithrombotic Therapy: Anticoagulant Therapy session at the 56th annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco, CA. The study was an open label, randomized, placebo-controlled, three-period crossover study in 15 healthy, adult subjects. Within each period, subjects received Eliquis 10 mg twice daily. On day four, three hours after Eliquis administration, subjects received a 30-minute infusion of 4-factor PCCs, either 50 IU/kg Cofact or Beriplex P/N, or an equivalent volume of saline solution. The effect of Cofact and Beriplex P/N on the pharmacodynamics of Eliquis was based upon changes in endogenous thrombin potential, a measure of thrombin-mediated coagulation. Treatment periods were separated by an 11-day washout, after which the alternate treatment was administered. In this study, no serious adverse events, bleeding-related events or signs of thrombosis were reported with Eliquis administration with or without PCC treatment. Overall, these data demonstrate that Cofact and Beriplex P/N reversed the steady-state pharmacodynamic effects of Eliquis as measured by ETP and support further evaluation of PCCs in the management of patients treated with Eliquis who require reversal of its anticoagulant effect.
