After Bloomberg reported that Express Scripts (ESRX) said that it would attempt to build a coalition against the use of Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi once a rival drug is approved, Maxim views Express Scripts' statement as "noise." The firm says that Sovaldi is not the most expensive HCV drug, and reiterates its view that Sovaldi provides "compelling" value, when including the cost of failure rates in a cost/benefit analysis.

07:15 EDTIDIXIdenix announces promising clinical data, continued progress in HCV programs
Idenix Pharmaceuticals announced continued progress of the Company's program to develop nucleotide prodrug inhibitors for the treatment of hepatitis C virus, or HCV, infection. Idenix is reporting potent antiviral activity of mean maximum 4.2-4.3 log10 IU/mL reductions for patients infected with HCV genotype 1, 2 or 3 receiving 300 mg once daily of IDX21437 in the seven-day proof-of-concept portion of a phase I/II clinical trial. Based on this progress, the Company's goal is to initiate a combination clinical trial of IDX21437 and samatasvir, a pan-genotypic NS5A inhibitor, in mid-2014. In addition, Idenix has selected a follow-on uridine-based nucleotide prodrug, IDX21459, from its ongoing nucleotide discovery program and initiated enrollment for the healthy volunteer portion of a phase I clinical trial. In January, Idenix initiated the seven-day proof-of-concept portion of a phase I/II clinical trial for IDX21437. The trial completed enrollment of 44 treatment-naïve, genotype, or GT, 1, 2 or 3 HCV-infected patients. Patients were randomized to receive once-daily doses of placebo, 50 mg, 150 mg, or 300 mg of IDX21437 for seven days. In April 2014, Idenix initiated enrollment for the healthy volunteer portion of a phase I clinical trial of IDX21459 in Europe. This portion of the study is expected to enroll approximately 50 healthy volunteers and will evaluate once-daily doses of IDX21459 ranging from 10 mg – 300 mg. The proof-of-concept portion of the study is expected to enroll a total of 40 treatment-naïve, genotype 1 HCV-infected patients who will receive once-daily doses of placebo, 50 - 300 mg of IDX21459 for seven days. IDX21459 has shown a favorable preclinical profile including potent, pan-genotypic activity and favorable safety with respect to cardiac, mitochondrial and genotoxicity assessments.
