Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and AbbVie (ABBV) announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted elotuzumab breakthrough therapy designation for use in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone for the treatment of multiple myeloma in patients who have received one or more prior therapies. The designation is based on findings from a randomized Phase 2, open-label study that evaluated two dose levels of elotuzumab in combination with lenalidomide and low-dose dexamethasone in previously-treated patients, including the 10 mg/kg dose that is being studied in Phase 3 trials. Data from the Phase 2 trial were most recently presented at the 18th Annual Congress of the European Hematology Association in 2013.

05:44 EDTBMYBristol-Myers Daklinza approved by EC
Bristol-Myers announced that the European Commission, or EC, has approved Daklinza for use in combination with other medicinal products across genotypes 1, 2, 3 and 4 for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus, or HCV, infection in adults. Daklinza, when used in combination with sofosbuvir, is an all-oral, interferon-free regimen that provided cure rates of up to 100% in clinical trials, including patients with advanced liver disease, genotype 3 and those who have previously failed treatment with protease inhibitors. Daklinza is the first NS5A complex inhibitor approved in the European Union and will be available for use in combination with other medicinal products, providing a shorter treatment duration compared to 48 weeks of treatment with interferon- and ribavirin-based regimens. The approval allows for the marketing of Daklinza in all 28 Member States of the EU. The marketing authorization for Daklinza follows an accelerated assessment by the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use, a designation that is granted to new medicines of major public health interest.

Bernstein believes that investors are concerned about upcoming competition to Gilead's (GILD) HCV drug from AbbVie's (ABBV) HCV treatment. But Bernstein says that insurers can only prevent 16% of the U.S. population from receiving Gilead's drug, and the firm does not expect the HCV market share dynamics to change in the near-term. It keeps an Outperform rating on Gilead.
