05:12 EDTAMGNAmgen presents analyses of Phase 3 ivabradine data for treatment of chronic HF
Amgen announced data from the Phase 3 Systolic Heart failure treatment with the If inhibitor ivabradine Trial, or SHIFT, study evaluating ivabradine in patients with chronic heart failure, or HF, were presented at the 18th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America, or HFSA, in Las Vegas. A post-hoc analysis from the SHIFT study confirmed low systolic blood pressure, or SBP, is associated with poor outcomes in chronic HF, and that ivabradine reduced the primary composite endpoint of cardiovascular death or hospitalization for worsening HF in this subgroup with low baseline SBP. Safety was similar across the three SBP groups. Results were published in the July 2014 issue of the European Journal of Heart Failure. Sean E. Harper, M.D., executive vice president of Research and Development at Amgen said, "Despite standard of care, chronic heart failure remains a disabling condition with a poor prognosis for patients at risk for hospitalization. Analyses from the pivotal SHIFT study complement the main trial findings that form the basis of our U.S. submission package for ivabradine. We recently received a priority review designation for ivabradine from the FDA and are working with the agency to potentially bring this important treatment option to certain patients with chronic heart failure in the U.S. as soon as possible."

Emergent BioSolutions has signed a contract with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health, to develop a dry formulation of NuThrax, also known as AV7909, the company’s next generation anthrax vaccine candidate.

The company is currently conducting a randomized, parallel-group, active-controlled, double-blind Phase 2 study designed to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of NuThrax for post-exposure prophylaxis of anthrax infection using two- and three-dose immunization schedules and two dose levels. This development contract HHSN272201400038C will be administered through NIAID, part of the National Institutes of Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
