07:01 EDTBMYBristol-Myers says Daklinza approved by Japan's MHLW
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company announced that the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has approved Daklinza, a potent, pan-genotypic NS5A replication complex inhibitor, and Sunvepra, a NS3/4A protease inhibitor, providing a new treatment that can lead to cure for many patients in Japan who currently have no treatment options. The Daklinza+Sunvepra Dual Regimen is Japan’s first all-oral, interferon- and ribavirin-free treatment regimen for patients with genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C virus infection, including those with compensated cirrhosis. The indications for Daklinza and Sunvepra in Japan are for the improvement of viraemia in either of the following patients with chronic hepatitis C genotype 1, or chronic hepatitis C genotype 1 with compensated cirrhosis: (1) patients who are ineligible or intolerant to interferon-based therapy, and (2) patients who have failed to respond to interferon-based therapy. The approval is supported by results from a Phase III study demonstrating that the 24-week regimen of Daklinza and Sunvepra achieved overall SVR24 among 84.7% of Japanese HCV patients with genotype 1b. Among patients 65 years of age or older who were either interferon-ineligible or intolerant, 91.9% achieved SVR24. Further, patients with compensated cirrhosis present at baseline had overall SVR24 rates of 90.9%.

08:05 EDTBMYBristol-Myers, Pharmacyclics, Janssen announce clinical collaboration
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY), Pharmacyclics, Inc. (PCYC), and Janssen Research & Development, LLC (JNJ) announced today they have entered into a clinical trial collaboration agreement to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s investigational PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibitor OPDIVO in combination with IMBRUVICA, an oral Bruton's tyrosine kinase inhibitor co-developed and co-marketed by Pharmacyclics and Janssen. The Phase 1/2 study will focus on evaluating the safety and anti-tumor activity of combining OPDIVO and IMBRUVICA as a potential treatment option for patients with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, including diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Bristol-Myers Squibb has proposed the name OPDIVO, which if approved by health authorities, will serve as the trademark for the investigational drug, nivolumab. OPDIVO is part of a new class of cancer treatments known as immunotherapies, which are designed to harness the body’s own immune system in fighting cancer by targeting distinct regulatory components of the immune system. Each agent has individually shown activity against hematologic malignancies in clinical trials; pre-clinical evidence suggests OPDIVO and IMBRUVICA may have the potential for additive treatment effects in patients with hematologic malignancies. The study will be conducted by Janssen. Additional details of the collaboration were not disclosed.
