08:07 EDTCLDX, BMYCelldex to collaborate with Bristol-Myers on varlilumab/nivolumab combo therapy
Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Celldex Therapeutics (CLDX) announced that they have entered into a clinical trial collaboration to evaluate the safety, tolerability and preliminary efficacy of nivolumab, Bristol-Myers' investigational PD-1 immune checkpoint inhibitor, and varlilumab, Celldex’s CD27 targeting investigational antibody in a Phase 1/2 study. Multiple tumor types will be explored in the study, which could potentially include non-small cell lung cancer, metastatic melanoma, ovarian, colorectal and squamous cell head and neck cancers. Under the terms of this agreement, Bristol-Myers Squibb will make a one-time payment of $5M to Celldex and the parties will share development costs. Celldex will be responsible for conducting the Ph 1/2 study, which is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2014. Additionally, the parties have re-structured an existing agreement between Celldex and Medarex related to Celldex’s CD27 program, and waived certain future milestone payments and reduced future royalty rates that would have been due from Celldex to Medarex. Medarex was acquired by Bristol-Myers Squibb in September of 2009. The companies will work exclusively with each other to explore anti-PD-1 antagonist antibody and anti-CD27 agonist antibody combination regimens. Bristol-Myers Squibb will have a time-limited right of first negotiation if Celldex wishes to out-license varlilumab.

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.
