05:25 EDTGILDGilead announces 95% virologic suppression in HCV study
Gilead Sciences announced data from two Phase 2 studies and a compassionate access study in which a regimen containing once-daily Sovaldi 400 mg was administered for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus infection in patients with advanced liver disease. The first study, Study GS-US-334-0125, is an ongoing open-label Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating HCV patients with cirrhosis and portal hypertension, with or without decompensation, who were randomized 1:1 to an immediate treatment arm in which Sovaldi and ribavirin was administered for 48 weeks or to a deferred treatment arm in which this regimen was initiated after a 24-week observation period. Eighty percent of participants were treatment-experienced. Of the 22 patients who completed 24 weeks of therapy, 95% achieved virologic suppression on treatment. Additionally, patients taking Sovaldi-based therapy experienced trends in clinical and laboratory parameter improvements compared to patients in the observation arm. Sovaldi-based therapy was well tolerated in the study, and only one patient discontinued treatment due to an adverse event. The most common adverse events occurring in more than 25 percent of patients included nausea and pruritis.

05:19 EDTGILDGilead Harvoni, Sovaldi demonstrate efficacy, safety
Gilead Sciences announced results from several Phase 2 clinical studies evaluating investigational uses of Harvoni and other Sovaldi-based regimens for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C virus, or HCV, infection in patients with advanced liver disease, including patients with decompensated cirrhosis, patients with fibrosing cholestatic hepatitis C and patients with portal hypertension. In SOLAR-2, 328 genotype 1 or 4 HCV patients with decompensated liver disease before liver transplantation or recurrent HCV infection following liver transplantation were randomized to receive either 12 or 24 weeks of Harvoni plus ribavirin. Ten patients were excluded from the analysis because of transplantation or because they were pre-transplantation, but not decompensated; an additional 27 of these patients have not yet reached post-treatment week 12. The most common adverse events were fatigue, anemia, nausea and headache. Overall, six patients discontinued treatment due to adverse events, five of whom had decompensated cirrhosis.

13:34 EDTGILDGilead paying premium to buy Vertex not warranted right now, says Maxim
After Bernstein suggested in a note to investors earlier that Gilead (GILD) should buy Vertex (VRTX), Maxim responded in its own note that it does not believe paying a premium to buy Vertex makes sense before the company has data showing efficacy for Kalydeco in heterozygotes. Maxim keeps a Hold rating and $121 price target on Vertex shares.
