06:11 EDTBMRNBioMarin says BMN 165-302 study to be available in Q4 of 2015
BioMarin announced last night that it intends to modify the entry criteria for the BMN 165-302 randomized discontinuation study. "The purpose of the eligibility modification is to leverage those patients who have relatively weaker immune reactions to PEG PAL, who therefore achieve Phe reductions faster, at relatively lower doses and with relatively fewer side effects. Under the revised entry criteria, patients will need to demonstrate a pre-specified reduction in blood Phe from PEG PAL during the BMN 165-301 feeder study prior to entering the BMN 165-302 RDT study," it stated. Based on the changed BMN 165-302 protocol, associated review of the proposed protocol and preliminary BMN 165-301 data with the FDA, and requirement for additional patients, the company now expects data from the enriched BMN 165-302 study to be available in Q4 of 2015.

10:56 EDTBMRNFed calls small cap social media, biotech valuations 'stretched'
The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve in its Monetary Policy Report dated today said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries, despite a notable downturn in equity prices for such firms early in the year." A later part in the document reads, "Equity valuations of smaller firms as well as social media and biotechnology firms appear to be stretched, with ratios of prices to forward earnings remaining high relative to historical norms." The specific targeting of sectors by the Fed seems to be having an impact on stocks in the social media and biotech spaces. Shares of Yelp (YELP) are down over 5% to $67.51, while Twitter (TWTR) and Facebook (FB) are each down 2%. Celgene (CELG) and Amgen (AMGN) are leading the biotech space lower with pullbacks of greater than 1%.
