Several companies, including Roche (RHHBY) and Merck (MRK) have taken aggressive legal steps to claim that Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi infringes upon their patents or contract rights and deserve a cut of the sales, reports the Wall Street Journal. Abbvi (ABBV), meanwhile, has obtained U.S. patents covering combinations of dozens of drugs to treat hepatitis-C as it develops a treatment of its own. Abbvie, Merck and Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) are also planning to bring their own regimens to market to compete with Gilead's. Reference Link

Results from a pivotal phase II clinical trial with olesoxime in SMA showed a beneficial effect on the maintenance of neuromuscular function in individuals with Type II and non-ambulatory Type III SMA, as well as a reduction in medical complications associated with the disease. These data were first presented in April 2014 at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology. Under the terms of the agreement, Trophos’s shareholders will receive an upfront cash payment of EUR 120M, plus additional contingent payments of up to EUR 350M based on achievement of certain predetermined milestones.
