13:51 EDTMYLBMO's pharma predictions for rest of year include take on Mylan, Perrigo
BMO Capital analyst David Maris rolled out his rest of year predictions for the Specialty Pharmaceuticals space. Among them is his belief that Mylan (MYL) will be unsuccessful in acquiring Perrigo (PRGO). Perrigo will either be acquired by another company or make an acquisition itself, Maris tells investors in a research note. His other predictions include Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ) proving to be a good buying opportunity amidst the current negative sentiment and ZS Pharma (ZSPH) offering upside following the recent pullback given the potential for a near-term buyout and prospects for its "best in class drug for hyperkalemia" winning approval in 2016.

15:24 EDTMYLMylan says Perrigo lawsuit 'without merit'
Mylan (MYL) believes that the Perrigo (PRGO) suit filed in Israel is entirely without merit and that Mylan's offer in Israel is valid and proper in all respects. With that said, Perrigo's efforts are entirely futile, as all Perrigo shareholders-institutional and retail, including those in Israel-have always been free to switch their holdings at any time from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange to the New York Stock Exchange, through a simple, fully automated, well-established system by notifying their broker. As a result, shareholders can participate fully in Mylan's compelling offer without regard to any lawsuits in Israel or any other frustrating actions pursued by Perrigo in Israel. Further, as Mylan has previously stated publicly, it has been its intent and desire to list Mylan's shares on the TASE to maintain liquidity in Israel for the convenience of those shareholders in Israel who prefer to trade on the TASE, and Mylan is already well-advanced in the process of submitting its application to the TASE and the Israel Securities Authority, and is committed to continuing to work closely with these parties to complete this process.

08:37 EDTJNJMinerva provieds update on MIN-202 development program
Minerva Neurosciences (NERV) provided an update on two ongoing clinical trials with MIN-202, a selective orexin-2 receptor antagonist under joint development with Janssen Pharmaceutica (JNJ). Patient recruitment is ongoing in both trials, which include a Phase 2a trial in insomnia disorder and a Phase 1b trial in adjunctive major depressive disorder. "We are pleased with the progress that is being made in the development of MIN-202 in insomnia and adjunctive MDD," said Dr. Remy Luthringer, president and chief executive officer of Minerva. "The ongoing trials in these indications are designed to provide assessments of the effects of this compound in sleep and major depressive disorder. We believe that MIN-202 has the potential to physiologically regulate biological rhythm and control of the wake drive based on its unique mechanism of action as a selective orexin-2 receptor antagonist."
07:33 EDTPFEBIND says Pfizer exercises option to obtain license for Accurin drug candidate
BIND Therapeutics (BIND) announced that Pfizer (PFE) exercised its option to obtain an exclusive license to develop and commercialize an Accurin drug candidate for the treatment of solid tumors under the companies' global collaboration agreement. The actively targeted Accurin is designed to impart cellular targeting capability and was engineered by BIND using one of Pfizer's proprietary kinase inhibitors and one of BIND's proprietary ligands. As a result of the option exercise, BIND will receive a $2.5 million option exercise fee from Pfizer. In parallel with exercising its first option, Pfizer informed BIND that it will not exercise its option for the second compound in the collaboration. Under terms of the original collaboration agreement, which was established in April 2013, Pfizer was granted options to obtain exclusive licenses to pursue development and commercialization of two Accurins that incorporate specified Pfizer small molecular targeted therapies. For the Accurin that has been selected, both companies will work together on preclinical research; Pfizer will have responsibility for development and commercialization, and BIND will conduct chemistry, manufacturing and control activities. In addition to the $2.5 million option exercise fee, BIND received an upfront payment of $4.0 million in 2013 and achieved a $1.0 million preclinical development milestone for the selected Accurin in December 2014. BIND has the potential to receive additional milestone payments for the selected Accurin of up to $86.0 million in aggregate upon the achievement of additional specified development and regulatory events under the Pfizer collaboration agreement. BIND may also receive additional milestone payments for the selected Accurin of up to $110 million in aggregate for specified commercial events as well as royalties in the low single to high single digit percentages on potential future sales of the selected Accurin, if any.

After Hillary Clinton unveiled a plan to lower drug prices, RBC Capital does not expect the plan to be passed by Congress. The firm adds that the plan is positive for generic drug makers and could pressure the FDA to more quickly approve generic drug applications. RBC identifies Insys Therapeutics (IINSY), Endo (ENDP), and Sagent Pharma (SGNT) as three stocks it likes that have suffered "disproportionate selloffs over the last two days." The firm identifies Sagent, Emdo and Mylan (MYL) as three companies with high generic exposure that have sold off.
