05:53 EDTBMY, AMGN, GILDDrug 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

07:01 EDTBMYBristol-Myers, AbbVie say EMA validates for review Empliciti MAA
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY) and AbbVie (ABBV) announced the European Medicines Agency validated for review the Marketing Authorization Application for Empliciti, an investigational Signaling Lymphocyte Activation Molecule-directed immunostimulatory antibody, for the treatment of multiple myeloma as combination therapy in adult patients who have received one or more prior therapies. The application was granted accelerated assessment by the EMA’s Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use. Bristol-Myers Squibb and AbbVie are co-developing Empliciti, with Bristol-Myers Squibb solely responsible for commercial activities. Bristol-Myers Squibb has proposed the name Empliciti which, if approved by health authorities, will serve as the trade name for elotuzumab. The MAA is primarily supported by data from two randomized clinical trials, each combining Empliciti with a different standard of care regimen for multiple myeloma. ELOQUENT-2, a Phase 3, randomized, open-label study, evaluated Empliciti in combination with lenalidomide and dexamethasone versus lenalidomide and dexamethasone alone. The results of this trial were published in The New England Journal of Medicine on June 2. Additionally, a Phase 2, randomized, open-label study evaluated Empliciti with bortezomib and dexamethasone versus bortezomib and dexamethasone alone. These Phase 2 results were presented in an oral session at the 20th Congress of the European Hematology Association. Empliciti previously obtained orphan drug designation in the European Union. An orphan medicinal product must be intended for the treatment, prevention or diagnosis of a disease that is life threatening and chronically debilitating; the prevalence in the EU must not be more than five in 10,000. The medicine must be of significant benefit to those affected by the condition. If maintained, orphan drug designation allows sponsors to access a number of incentives including protocol assistance and receive market exclusivity for a ten-year period following approval.
