13:15 EDTNVSFDA expands use of Novartis' Promacta to include children ages 1 and older
Ligand Pharmaceuticals (LGND) announced that the FDA has approved an expanded use for Promacta, a Novartis (NVS) product, to include children 1 year of age and older with chronic immune thrombocytopenia who have had an insufficient response to corticosteroids, immunoglobulins or splenectomy. Promacta was acquired by Novartis in March from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Promacta was discovered as a result of research collaboration between GSK and Ligand Pharmaceuticals and was developed by GSK. The updated label also includes a new oral suspension formulation of Promacta that is designed for younger children who may not be able to swallow tablets. Promacta was approved by the FDA as a tablet formulation in June 2015 for children 6 years of age and older and in 2008 for use in adult patients with the same condition. The label expansion of Promacta was based on data from two double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, including the largest Phase 3 clinical trial in this patient population. Treatment with Promacta significantly increased and sustained platelet counts among pediatric patients with chronic ITP with an insufficient response to prior chronic ITP therapies, and some patients taking concomitant ITP medications were able to reduce or discontinue their use of these medications, primarily corticosteroids. Promacta should be used only in those whose degree of thrombocytopenia and clinical condition increase the risk for bleeding.

05:25 EDTNVSNovartis acquires all remaining rights to Ofatumumab from GSK
Novartis (NVS) announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire all remaining rights to Ofatumumab from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Ofatumumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody which targets CD20, is being developed for relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, or RRMS, and other autoimmune indications. Novartis previously acquired the rights to Ofatumumab for oncology indications and it is marketed under the brand name Arzerra. Novartis will be responsible for the worldwide development, regulatory and commercialization activities for Ofatumumab. Under the terms of the agreement, Novartis will make an initial upfront payment of $300M to GSK for the acquisition of the compound and a further payment of $200M payable following the start of a phase III study in MS by Novartis. Upon completion of pre-determined milestones, contingent payments of up to $534M may be made. Novartis will also pay royalties of up to 12% to GSK on any future net sales of Ofatumumab in autoimmune conditions.
