05:53 EDTBMY, GILD, AMGNDrug firms shift revenue abroad to lower taxes, WSJ reports
A number of big drug companies pay effective tax rates of 20% or more. Now they're taking steps to lower their taxes significantly, helping their bottom lines, reports the Wall Street Journal. While they don't specify their strategies, details can vary. But the efforts typically involve shifting revenue overseas where it can be taxed at a lower rate than in the U.S., experts say. Some companies also noted the tax benefit they will receive this year from a federal tax credit for research and development.Reference Link

06:04 EDTGILDGilead's simtuzumab Phase 2 study for pancreatic cancer does not meet endpoint
Gilead announced results from a Phase 2 study evaluating simtuzumab, an investigational inhibitor of lysyl oxidase-like-2, in combination with gemcitabine for patients with previously untreated advanced pancreatic cancer. In the study, the addition of simtuzumab to gemcitabine did not significantly increase progression-free survival compared to placebo plus gemcitabine. There was no difference in adverse events between patients taking simtuzumab versus placebo. Simtuzumab is being evaluated in several ongoing Phase 2 trials, including for advanced colorectal cancer, myelofibrosis, as monotherapy for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and for liver fibrosis. Other agents in Gileadís oncology pipeline are currently being evaluated in clinical trials for the treatment of pancreatic cancer.

16:05 EDTAMGNAmgen says romosozumab treatment increases bone mineral density
Amgen and UCB announced results from several exploratory analyses of the Phase 2 study evaluating romosozumab in postmenopausal women with low bone mineral density, BMD. Romosozumab is an investigational bone-forming agent that is designed to work by inhibiting the protein sclerostin, thereby increasing bone formation and decreasing bone breakdown. These data were presented at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, ASBMR, 2014 Annual Meeting in Houston, Sept. 12-15. "Fractures or broken bones due to osteoporosis are very common and often have a life altering impact on an older woman and her family," said Michael McClung, M.D., director of the Oregon Osteoporosis Center. "It is encouraging to see that treatment with romosozumab for a second year provided additional increases in bone mineral density beyond what was seen during the first 12 months of treatment." "Despite continuing progress in the management and treatment of patients with osteoporosis, there remains a considerable need for new therapeutic approaches for individual patients," said Professor Dr. Iris Loew-Friedrich, chief medical officer and executive vice president, UCB. "Investigational studies to date suggest that the bone building capacity of romosozumab may show promise as a new treatment option to manage this serious disease. We look forward to reporting the results of the romosozumab Phase 3 program in 2016."

05:12 EDTAMGNAmgen presents analyses of Phase 3 ivabradine data for treatment of chronic HF
Amgen announced data from the Phase 3 Systolic Heart failure treatment with the If inhibitor ivabradine Trial, or SHIFT, study evaluating ivabradine in patients with chronic heart failure, or HF, were presented at the 18th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America, or HFSA, in Las Vegas. A post-hoc analysis from the SHIFT study confirmed low systolic blood pressure, or SBP, is associated with poor outcomes in chronic HF, and that ivabradine reduced the primary composite endpoint of cardiovascular death or hospitalization for worsening HF in this subgroup with low baseline SBP. Safety was similar across the three SBP groups. Results were published in the July 2014 issue of the European Journal of Heart Failure. Sean E. Harper, M.D., executive vice president of Research and Development at Amgen said, "Despite standard of care, chronic heart failure remains a disabling condition with a poor prognosis for patients at risk for hospitalization. Analyses from the pivotal SHIFT study complement the main trial findings that form the basis of our U.S. submission package for ivabradine. We recently received a priority review designation for ivabradine from the FDA and are working with the agency to potentially bring this important treatment option to certain patients with chronic heart failure in the U.S. as soon as possible."
