07:01 EDTGSKPfizer to acquire Nimenrix, Mencevax from GlaxoSmithKline for $130M
Pfizer (PFE) announced that it has entered into an agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to acquire its quadrivalent meningitis ACWY vaccines, Nimenrix and Mencevax, for a total consideration of approximately $130M. This transaction will add two high-quality and complementary vaccines to Pfizer’s portfolio, allowing the company to reach a broader global population. Nimenrix is a single dose meningococcal ACWY-TT conjugated vaccine designed to protect against Neisseria meningitidis, an uncommon but highly contagious disease that can lead to disability and death. Mencevax is a single-dose meningococcal ACWY unconjugated polysaccharide vaccine used to control outbreaks of meningococcal infection and for travelers to countries where the disease is endemic or highly epidemic. Pfizer does not expect this transaction to have any significant impact on its 2015 financial performance. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions as well as regulatory approvals in several markets, and is expected to occur in the second half of 2015. Pfizer’s legal advisors for the transaction were Ropes & Gray and Clifford Chance.
06:32 EDTBAXKamada collaborates with Baxter on clinical trial with Alpha-1 antitrypsin
Kamada (KMDA) reports that the company has entered into a collaboration with Baxalta International, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Baxter (BAX) on a Phase 1/2 clinical trial of Kamada’s proprietary alpha-1 antitrypsin treatment for the prevention of lung transplant rejection. Under the agreement, Baxalta will collaborate in the development and funding of the study, which will be conducted in Israel. The study is expected to initiate in the first half of 2016, with more details on trial design to be provided at a later date. Kamada’s proprietary, highly-purified, liquid form of human AAT has shown positive interim results in a proof-of-concept Phase II study in Graft-versus-Host-Disease conducted at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in cooperation with Baxalta. Based on those results, preclinical data published in Blood, and at the American Society of Hematology meeting, and a similar mechanism of action, the companies now plan to expand the AAT indication to the prevention of lung transplant rejection and may use this data to support clinical development worldwide. Baxalta has distribution rights to intravenous AAT for all indications in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand, while Kamada has rights in all other territories and all other formulations.
