William Blair said it views the preliminary Phase II efficacy and safety data from mongersen in Crohn’s disease reported by Celgene as encouraging. The firm noted that the 10 mg arm did not achieve significance, but the three data points collectively formed a robust dose-response that William Blair said lends support for the drug's proposed mechanism of action. William Blair believes mongersen complements Celgene’s Inflammation & Immunology portfolio and the firm maintains its Outperform rating on the stock, which is up 4% to $91.65 in afternoon trading.

17:03 EDTNVSNovartis announces CTL019 data demonstrating efficacy in certain ALL patients
Novartis and the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine announced preliminary results from two pilot clinical trials published in The New England Journal of Medicine, or NEJM, evaluating the efficacy and safety of CTL019 in patients with relapsed/refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or r/r ALL. The studies, conducted by Penn, demonstrated that 27 of 30 pediatric and adult patients, or 90%, experienced complete remissions with the investigational chimeric antigen receptor, or CAR, therapy CTL019. Largest published cohort to date for CTL019, which served as the basis for recent Breakthrough Therapy designation from the FDA. Sustained remissions of up to two years in r/r ALL patients with six-month event-free survival of 67% and overall survival of 78%.

05:13 EDTNVSNovartis reports new analyses of AIN457 Phase III data show consistent efficacy
Novartis announced that new analyses of AIN457 Phase III studies showed that treatment with secukinumab 300 mg resulted in higher rates of clear to almost clear skin at Week 12 versus placebo, regardless of patients' psoriasis disease severity. Secukinumab's new mode of action stops interleukin-17A, which plays a central role in the development of psoriasis. In the analyses, the majority of patients across two disease severity subgroups, including those with severe psoriasis, experienced complete clear to almost clear skin measured as 100 or 90% reduction of respective baseline PASI, or Psoriasis Area and Severity Index. Skin clearance was sustained through one year of treatment. This is important as historically, psoriasis patients' disease severity at the start of treatment has been shown to negatively impact their response to other therapies. Disease severity subgroups were PASI less than or equal to 20 and PASI greater than 20. PASI measures redness, scaling and thickness of psoriatic plaques and the impact in regions of the body. These findings reconfirm the significantly better responses seen in the published FIXTURE study, where secukinumab showed superiority to Enbrel, a standard of care anti-TNF medication.
