07:02 EDTINCY, BMYBristol-Myers, Incyte enter collaboration agreement for nivolumab, INCB24360
Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Incyte (INCY) announced the establishment of a clinical trial collaboration to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of a combination regimen of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s investigational PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibitor, nivolumab, and Incyte’s oral indoleamine dioxygenase-1 inhibitor, INCB24360, in a Phase I/II study. Multiple tumor types will be explored in the study, which could potentially include melanoma, non-small cell lung, ovarian, colorectal, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. The study, which is expected to begin in 4Q, will be co-funded by the companies and conducted by Incyte. Additional details of the collaboration were not disclosed.

13:32 EDTBMYPfizer, Bristol-Myers announce results of human study on Eliquis
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY) and Pfizer (PFE) announced results of the first human study evaluating the reversal of the anticoagulant effect of Eliquis by 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrates in healthy subjects. The study results demonstrated that both PCCs, Sanquin’s Cofact and CSL Behring’s Beriplex P/N reversed the steady-state pharmacodynamic effects of Eliquis in several coagulation assessments, including endogenous thrombin potential. The full data will be presented today during the Antithrombotic Therapy: Anticoagulant Therapy session at the 56th annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco, CA. The study was an open label, randomized, placebo-controlled, three-period crossover study in 15 healthy, adult subjects. Within each period, subjects received Eliquis 10 mg twice daily. On day four, three hours after Eliquis administration, subjects received a 30-minute infusion of 4-factor PCCs, either 50 IU/kg Cofact or Beriplex P/N, or an equivalent volume of saline solution. The effect of Cofact and Beriplex P/N on the pharmacodynamics of Eliquis was based upon changes in endogenous thrombin potential, a measure of thrombin-mediated coagulation. Treatment periods were separated by an 11-day washout, after which the alternate treatment was administered. In this study, no serious adverse events, bleeding-related events or signs of thrombosis were reported with Eliquis administration with or without PCC treatment. Overall, these data demonstrate that Cofact and Beriplex P/N reversed the steady-state pharmacodynamic effects of Eliquis as measured by ETP and support further evaluation of PCCs in the management of patients treated with Eliquis who require reversal of its anticoagulant effect.
13:07 EDTINCYNovartis announces data from Jakavi trial
Novartis (NVS) announced data from the largest clinical trial of myelofibrosis patients treated with Jakavi, supporting the safety profile and efficacy benefit as measured in primary and secondary endpoints respectively. In an analysis of 1,144 patients treated with Jakavi to date in this ongoing expanded access study, 69% of patients achieved >50% reduction in spleen size from baseline and patients also experienced a clinically meaningful improvement in myelofibrosis symptom score, important treatment goals for patients with myelofibrosis. Findings from the study were presented at the 56th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco, California. Novartis research and development efforts, in collaboration with Incyte Corporation (INCY), include early-phase and post-marketing studies in myelofibrosis and other myeloproliferative neoplasms. More than 50 abstracts on ruxolitinib are being presented at ASH, including three oral presentations exploring combinations of ruxolitinib with various investigational compounds, evaluating the possibility of simultaneously targeting multiple cancer pathways that may be involved in the pathogenesis of myelofibrosis. The JUMP study is a Phase IIIb, expanded-access trial for countries with no access to Jakavi outside of a clinical trial. The open-label, multicenter study analyzed 1,144 enrolled myelofibrosis patients who received daily starting doses of either 5 mg, 15 mg or 20 mg of Jakavi twice daily based on platelet counts at baseline. The primary endpoint is assessment of safety and tolerability of Jakavi. Overall, the safety and efficacy profile of Jakavi was consistent with previous studies.

Shares of Bristol-Myers (BMY) are up in early trading amid chatter of a potential takeover bid from Pfizer (PFE). The stock is up $1.26 to $60.15. Bristol's market capitalization stands around $99B, less than twice that of Pfizer's $200B. A Jefferies analyst last week called Mylan (MYL) the most likely takeover target for Pfizer. Pfizer is "highly motivated" to buy a foreign company using its overseas cash and Mylan looks like the most likely target, Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford wrote.
