09:02 EDTBAXBaxter announces BAX 855 met primary endpoint in Phase 3 study
Baxter announced "positive" results from its Phase 3 pivotal clinical trial of BAX 855, which met its primary endpoint in reducing annualized bleed rates in the prophylaxis arm compared to the on-demand arm. Top-line results from the prospective, global, multi-center Phase 3 study demonstrated that BAX 855 met its primary endpoint in the control and prevention of bleeding, routine prophylaxis and perioperative management for patients who were 12 years or older. Patients in a twice-weekly prophylaxis arm experienced a 95% reduction in median ABR as compared to those in the on-demand arm. BAX 855 was also effective in treating bleeding episodes, 96% of which were controlled with one or two infusions. The half-life of BAX 855 was 1.4 – 1.5 times that of ADVATE, consistent with the findings from the Phase 1 study. No patients developed inhibitors to BAX 855 and no treatment-related serious adverse events, including hypersensitivity, were reported. The most common product-related adverse event was headache. Baxter expects to submit a Biologics License Application for BAX 855 to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration before the end of 2014 and will present additional data in the coming months. In addition to an ongoing continuation study for patients who have completed the pivotal trial, the company is initiating a Phase 3, prospective, open-label, multi-center study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of BAX 855 among 60 previously treated patients under the age of 12 with severe hemophilia A. Consistent with guidelines published by the European Medicines Agency that require a study in children less than 12 years of age prior to filing, Baxter expects to file a Marketing Authorization Application with the EMA upon the completion of the pediatric study.

06:36 EDTBAXKamada announces second extension of strategic agreement with Baxter
Kamada (KMDA) announced the second extension to supply Glassia to Baxter (BAX) in its strategic agreement with the biopharmaceutical business of Baxter. Through the extended agreement, Kamada secured $26M in additional revenues of Glassia, the company’s proprietary, ready-to-infuse liquid alpha-1 antitrypsin treatment that is indicated as a chronic augmentation and maintenance therapy in adults with clinically evident emphysema due to severe congenital AAT deficiency, through 2017. As a result, Kamada expects that total revenue generated through this agreement from October 2010 through end of 2017 will increase to a minimum of $191M compared with a minimum of $110M contained in the original agreement executed in 2010 and a minimum of $165M contained in the May 2013 extension. In addition, the company reports that the supply of Glassia to Baxter has been extended through 2017 and that the transition to royalty payments for Glassia produced by Baxter is not expected to begin before 2018. Until that time, Kamada will continue to produce Glassia for distribution by Baxter. Kamada is confident in its ability to support the increased demand from Baxter throughout the term of the amended agreement.
