07:07 EDTGALEIDMC recommends reduction of cardiac toxicity monitoring in Galena NeuVax trial
Galena Biopharma announced that the Independent Data Monitoring Committee, or IDMC, has recommended to the company that it can reduce the cardiac toxicity monitoring for patients in its NeuVax Phase 3 Prevention of Recurrence in Early-Stage, Node-Positive Breast Cancer with Low to Intermediate HER2 Expression with NeuVax Treatment, or PRESENT, clinical trial. The trial is being run under a Special Protocol Assessment, or SPA, approved by the FDA. Following its most recent IDMC meeting in June, the IDMC recommended routine cardiac monitoring could be reduced in the PRESENT trial and that such a reduction is justified and consistent with the pre-specified Cardiac Toxicity Monitoring Stopping Rules defined in the study protocol. The IDMC concluded that cardiac toxicity monitoring by echocardiogram, or ECHO, or multiple-gated acquisition, or MUGA, scans could be reduced. The IDMC had no other suggestions and recommended the trial continue as planned.

Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner says HP's Q3 results beat expectations while a shift in some earnings into the quarter from Q4 drove "modestly disappointing" guidance. While PCs are weak, HP's Enterprise Group "significantly outperformed expectations," Scribner tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst believes the company's enterprise portfolio is being underappreciated by investors and that the upcoming split should be a positive for shares. She views HP's valuation as compelling and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $45 price target.
