07:28 EDTGILDMacroGenics and Gilead enter strategic alliance to develop DART products
MacroGenics announced it has entered into a license agreement with Gilead for the development and commercialization of Dual-Affinity Re-Targeting products directed at up to four undisclosed targets. MacroGenics' DART technology is a proprietary, bi-specific antibody platform in which a single recombinant molecule is able to target two different antigens. Under the terms of the agreement, MacroGenics could receive a total of up to $30M in license fee payments, and up to an additional $85M in pre- clinical milestones across the four DART programs. Gilead has exclusive worldwide rights for three of the programs. For one program, MacroGenics retains development and commercialization rights outside of North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, which encompasses multiple major markets including Japan, China, Korea, Brazil, Russia and others. Gilead will fully fund MacroGenics' research activities with respect to the four programs. MacroGenics could also receive up to approximately $1B in clinical, regulatory and commercialization milestone payments if all four programs achieve the requisite milestones.

17:06 EDTGILDGilead AMBITION study results published in New England Journal of Medicine
Gilead Sciences (GILD) announced detailed results from the AMBITION study. In AMBITION, conducted in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), combination therapy with Letairis and tadalafil reduced the risk of clinical failure by 50% compared to the pooled Letairis and tadalafil monotherapy arm. These data were published in The New England Journal of Medicine. Letairis, a selective endothelin type-A receptor antagonist, and tadalafil, a PDE5 inhibitor, are each approved in the United States, the European Union and other countries as once-daily treatments for patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension with WHO/NYHA functional class II and III symptoms. Letairis is indicated in the U.S. to improve exercise ability and delay clinical worsening and in the EU under the tradename Volibris to improve exercise capacity. Tadalafil 40 mg is indicated in the U.S. and the EU to improve exercise ability and capacity, respectively. Preclinical data have suggested these therapies may have synergistic effects. However, combination use with Letairis and tadalafil is currently not approved.

19:34 EDTGILDExperts tell White House to expand use of Hepatitis C drugs, NYT says
Health care experts from the Public Health Service and the Advisory Council on H.I.V./AIDS have recommended that Medicaid officials expand the use of costly Hepatitis C drugs including AbbVie's (ABBV) Viekira Pak and Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi and Harvoni, reports the New York Times, citing correspondence sent to the White House. The advisory council said current usage limitations on the drugs are "unreasonable," but it also suggested that manufacturers disclose drug development costs in the face of the significant price tags on modern Hepatitis C treatments.

13:36 EDTGILDBiotech correction presents some opportunities, says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Michael Yee said he won't try to pick the short-term bottom in biotech, but contends that any macro weakness in China shouldn't have any major impact to financials or fundamentals for the sector given their minimal exposure there. If the market continues to be volatile, Yee recommends a focus on names with defensive characteristics, such as higher margins and free cash flow yield, naming Amgen (AMGN), Celgene (CELG) and Gilead (GILD) as some examples. The analyst adds that he likes Vertex (VRTX) on the pullback for "more aggressive" growth investors. Yee has Outperform ratings on all of the stocks mentioned above.
