12:15 EDTAZN, MYLAstraZeneca wins appeal to block generic Seroquel XR from Mylan, others
After a New Jersey district court ruled last March that AstraZeneca's (AZN) formulation patent protecting Seroquel XR extended release tablets was valid, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit affirmed the lower court's ruling today. The lower court had also ruled that Anchen Pharmaceuticals, Osmotica Pharmaceutical, Torrent Pharmaceuticals and Mylan Pharmaceuticals (MYL) have infringed the Seroquel XR formulation patent, which expires in 2017.

08:20 EDTMYLMylan’s Piatt was developer at land where company built headquarters, WSJ says
Mylan’s vice chairman and lead independent director Rodney Piatt served as the main developer of the company’s Pittsburgh office park where it built new headquarters, the Wall Street Journal reports, citing property records. Just a day before Mylan unveiled plans to build its new headquarters in an office park near Pittsburgh in December 2013, a company owned by Mylan vice chairman and lead independent director Rodney Piatt sold a 7-acre site for $1 to an entity owned by Andrew Miller, a business partner in Southpointe II, the report says. The firm sold the same land to Mylan for $2.9M later that same day, the report says. Mylan says there was no need to disclosed Piatt’s connection to the real estate project since he and the company avoided any direct dealings with each other, the Wall Street Journal reports. The records obtained by the Journal show that a similar transaction occurred in May, when Mylan paid $9.2M to buy an adjacent 11 acres from Miller, whose firm previously purchased the land for $10 from a company partly owned by Piatt.

09:07 EDTAZNCAR-T cancer drug researchers seen as M&A targets, Bloomberg says
Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), Kite Pharma (KITE) and Bluebird Bio (BLUE) are trading well above their IPO levels as takeovers predictions have spurred interest and share increases for the developers of CAR-T gene therapies, said Bloomberg's "Real M&A" column, quoting Dimo Dimov, a professor at the University of Bath’s School of Management, as having said that companies such as Pfizer (PFE), Merck (MRK), Roche (RHHBY) and AstraZeneca (AZN) are "closely watching" the firms.
