06:55 EDTSNY, GSKGenocea could be takeover target after data, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff expects Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) will report positive Phase II GEN-003 post-immunization results late in Q2. GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target. Shares of the clinical-stage vaccine developer with a $227M market capitalization closed yesterday up 83c to $10.22.

07:07 EDTGSKGSK, Emergent BioSolutions, Oxford initiate Prime Boost study of Ebola vaccine
A new phase 1 study has begun at the University of Oxford that will investigate the use of a modified vaccinia Ankara, or MVA, Ebola Zaire vaccine candidate, or MVA EBOZ, as a prime-boost to GlaxoSmithKline's (GSK) Chimp Adenovirus type 3, or ChAd3, Ebola vaccine candidate. The study, being conducted by the clinical research group of Professor Adrian Hill of the Jenner Institute, has received regulatory approval to begin from the United Kingdom's Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, or MHRA. The phase 1 study has a planned enrollment of 38 volunteers of which 6 will receive MVA EBOZ only while the other 32 will receive ChAd3-EBO-Z prime followed by MVA EBOZ boost. Emergent BioSolutions (EBS) manufactured the supply of MVA EBOZ to be used in this phase 1 study, which is being conducted in the U.K. with support from the Wellcome Trust and the U.K. Department for International Development.
07:05 EDTSNYSanofi exercises option on therapeutic program with Selecta Biosciences
Selecta Biosciences., a clinical stage biotechnology company developing a novel class of targeted antigen-specific immune therapies, today announced that, under the terms of an existing strategic global collaboration, Sanofi has exercised its option to an exclusive license to develop an immunotherapy for the treatment of celiac disease. Under the terms of the collaboration, Selecta is eligible to receive research support and several pre-clinical, clinical, regulatory and sales milestones totaling up to $300 million for this new program in celiac disease. Additionally, Selecta is also entitled to up to double digit tiered royalties as percentage of product net sales for any commercialized immunotherapy resulting from these efforts with Sanofi. November 2012, Selecta announced that they had formed a strategic global collaboration to discover highly targeted, antigen-specific immunotherapies for life threatening allergies. Under the agreement, Sanofi obtained a first exclusive license to develop an immunotherapy designed to abate acute immune responses against a life threatening food allergen and an option to develop two additional candidate immunotherapies for allergies and celiac disease. With the exercise of this option by Sanofi, Selecta and Sanofi now have two initiatives actively advancing immune tolerance treatments under the terms of the 2012 agreement. In October 2014, Selecta and JDRF announced another collaboration with Sanofi to research novel antigen-specific immune therapies for Type 1 Diabetes.
