07:03 EDTBLUECelgene leaps forward in immuno-oncology with Juno deal, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said that Celgene (CELG) effectively spent $1B to buy into adoptive T cell therapy and own all of Juno Therapeutics' (JUNO) opportunities outside the U.S., leaping the company into a leading position in the immuno-oncology space. Schimmer additionally thinks Celgene's transaction should help boost investor confidence about the utility and value of CAR and TCR therapies, noting that he sees Bellicum Pharmaceuticals (BLCM), Cellectis (CLLS), Lion Biotechnologies (LBIO), bluebird bio (BLUE) and the Amgen (AMGN)-Kite Pharma (KITE) partnership as best positioned to compete in this rapidly advancing field. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating and $144 price target on Celgene.

Cellectis (CLLS), which is working with Pfizer on its own approach to CAR-T therapy, has said it wants to bring its therapy to market and doesn’t anticipate a sale, the report noted. Reference Link
07:32 EDTAGIOAgios Pharmaceuticals announces first patient dosed with AG-881 in Phase 1 study
Agios Pharmaceuticals announced dose administration for the first patient in a Phase 1, open-label, dose-escalation and expansion study of single agent AG-881, a small molecule that has shown in preclinical studies to fully penetrate the blood-brain barrier and inhibit isocitrate dehydrogenase-1 and IDH2 mutations in cancer models. The purpose of the Phase 1 multi-center, open-label study is to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and clinical activity of AG-881 in advanced solid tumors. AG-881 will be administered continuously as a single agent dosed orally in a 28-day cycle. The first portion of the study includes a dose-escalation phase in which cohorts of patients will receive ascending oral doses of AG-881 to determine the maximum tolerated dose and/or the recommended Phase 2 dose based on safety and tolerability. The second portion of the study is a dose expansion phase where patients will receive AG-881 to further evaluate the safety, tolerability and clinical activity of the recommended Phase 2 dose.
