10:38 EDTCLVSFly Watch: Biotech sector events to watch for this summer
Three key events in the biotech sector are slated to occur this summer, Mizuho Securities previewed in a note to investors today. Namely, data from Clovis Oncology's (CLVS) lung cancer treatment is expected to be released, interim data for Verastem's (VSTM) cancer treatment could be unveiled and the PDUFA date for Tesaro's (TSO) rolapitant drug for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting will occur. A PDUFA date is the day on which the FDA is expected to decide whether to approve a drug. WHAT'S NEW: Data for Clovis' rociletinib lung cancer treatment is expected by the firm to be released September 6-9, Mizuho analyst Peter Lawson wrote. Favorable data could result in the the drug more quickly becoming the first treatment option after it hits the market, the analyst stated. Interim data for Verastem's cancer treatment product, defactinib, will have one of three outcomes, Lawson forecast: additional patients will be enrolled in the study, the study will be terminated due to poor results or the patients in the study with low levels of a tumor suppressor gene product called Merlin will be enriched for Merlin. According to Lawson, expectations heading into the trial are low, and the most likely outcome is that the Merlin enrichment scenario will occur. If this scenario does occur, Verastem's stock will probably temporarily fall, potentially creating a better entry point, Lawson believes. The PDUFA date for Tesaro's rolapitant drug is September 5, the analyst stated. The analyst kept a $103 price target and Buy rating on Clovis, a $67 price target and Buy rating on Tesaro and a $21 price target and Buy rating on Verastem. PRICE ACTION In early trading, Clovis fell 2.2% to $83.98, Verastem retreated 2.3% to $6.96 and Tesaro dropped 1.7% to $55.80.

09:07 EDTAZNCAR-T cancer drug researchers seen as M&A targets, Bloomberg says
Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), Kite Pharma (KITE) and Bluebird Bio (BLUE) are trading well above their IPO levels as takeovers predictions have spurred interest and share increases for the developers of CAR-T gene therapies, said Bloomberg's "Real M&A" column, quoting Dimo Dimov, a professor at the University of Bath’s School of Management, as having said that companies such as Pfizer (PFE), Merck (MRK), Roche (RHHBY) and AstraZeneca (AZN) are "closely watching" the firms. Cellectis (CLLS), which is working with Pfizer on its own approach to CAR-T therapy, has said it wants to bring its therapy to market and doesn’t anticipate a sale, the report noted. Reference Link
