13:38 EDTBIIB, SHPG, BMYUnclear if pipeline alone can restore Bristol's growth, WSJ says
With Bristol-Myers' (BMY) losing Plavix patent exclusivity, the company took a 17% hit in revenues in 2012, and is now counting on new drugs like Eliquis and late-stage drugs aiming to treat cancer, diabetes and hepatitis C to restore growth, says the Wall Street Journal. However, "it remains unclear whether new drugs alone will be enough to restore growth," says WSJ, adding that in recent months Bristol has studied the possibility of Biogen Idec (BIIB) Shire (SHPG) as possible acquisition targets.

07:00 EDTBMYBristol-Myers announces data from Phase 3 ALLY-3+ trial for Daklinza
Bristol-Myers announced late-breaking data from the Phase 3 ALLY-3+ trial investigating a regimen of Daklinza in combination with sofosbuvir and ribavirin in genotype 3 hepatitis C patients with advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis, for treatment durations of 12 and 16 weeks. This patient population is one of the most difficult to treat, among whom sustained virologic response rates, or cure, have proved harder to achieve. The results show that 100% of patients in the advanced fibrosis cohort achieved SVR12 in both the 12- and 16-week arms of the study. SVR12 rates were 83% and 89% in patients with cirrhosis in the 12- and 16-week arms, respectively.
