13:30 EDTMRKMerck announces data from pivotal Phase 3 study for odanacatib
Merck announced data from the pivotal Phase 3 fracture outcomes study for odanacatib in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Odanacatib is Merck’s investigational once-weekly cathepsin K inhibitor. In the Long-Term Odanacatib Fracture Trial, odanacatib met its primary endpoints and significantly reduced the risk of osteoporotic hip, spine and non-vertebral fractures compared with placebo. The rates of adverse events overall in LOFT were generally balanced between patients taking odanacatib and placebo. Adjudicated events of morphea-like skin lesions and atypical femoral fractures occurred more often in the odanacatib group than in the placebo group. Adjudicated major adverse cardiovascular events were generally balanced overall between the treatment groups. There were numerically more adjudicated stroke events with odanacatib than with placebo.

10:32 EDTAZN, PFEPfizer CEO says company still open to inversion deal, FT says
Pfizer (PFE) CEO Ian Read said U.S. rhetoric against tax inversions has been "political theater" ahead of midterm elections and made clear that his company is still open to a potential tax-saving acquisition, according to Financial Times, which added Read's comment about not being “held hostage” over price would likely be read as a signal the company might look elsewhere after being rebuffed by AstraZeneca (AZN). The Fly notes that Bloomberg previously reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Pfizer is looking at targets other than AstraZeneca, including Actavis (ACT). Shares of Actavis trading in New York are up 2% this morning. Reference Link
08:02 EDTALNYAlnylam broadens pipeline with ALN-AGT
Alnylam Pharmaceuticals announced that it is broadening its pipeline with ALN-AGT. In a poster presented at the American Heart Association’s High Blood Pressure Research 2014 Scientific Sessions, Alnylam and collaborators at the Charite Universitatsmedizin in Berlin presented results of an ALN-AGT lead molecule in an established preeclamptic rodent model. The study showed that administration of ALN-AGT resulted in knockdown of maternal AGT in the liver without detectable evidence of fetal drug exposure, significantly improved pregnancy-related hypertension, ameliorated preeclamptic sequelae in the mother such as proteinuria, and improved fetal outcomes.

08:01 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces Cyramza Phase III cancer trial meets primary endpoint
Eli Lilly announced that the RAISE trial, a Phase III study of ramucirumab in combination with chemotherapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, met its primary endpoint of overall survival. The global, randomized, double-blind study compared ramucirumab plus FOLFIRI to placebo plus FOLFIRI as a second-line treatment in patients with mCRC after treatment with bevacizumab, oxaliplatin and a fluoropyrimidine in the first-line setting. RAISE showed a statistically significant improvement in overall survival in patients treated with ramucirumab plus FOLFIRI compared to placebo plus FOLFIRI. The study also showed a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival in the ramucirumab-plus-FOLFIRI arm compared to the placebo-plus-FOLFIRI arm.
07:32 EDTBIIBBiogen, AbbVie announce ZINBRYTA DECIDE Phase 3 study results
Biogen (BIIB) and AbbVie (ABBV) announced the full results from the Phase 3 DECIDE clinical trial, which show ZINBRYTA, dosed subcutaneously once a month, demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in reducing disease activity in people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis compared to AVONEX. These results are being presented at the Sixth Triennial Joint Meeting of the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis and the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis. Patients on ZINBRYTA demonstrated a statistically significant 45% reduction in annualized relapse rate compared to patients treated with AVONEX. Based on the efficacy and safety data from the ZINBRYTA clinical development program, Biogen Idec and AbbVie plan to file marketing applications for ZINBRYTA with regulatory authorities during 1H15.

07:31 EDTBIIBBiogen announces new data from Plegridy Phase 3 ADVANCE trial
Biogen Idec announced new data from the second year of its Phase 3 ADVANCE clinical trial that show the positive treatment effects of PLEGRIDY were maintained in people with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis beyond the first year of the study. These results were presented at the sixth Triennial Joint Meeting of the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis and the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis in Boston. Post-hoc analyses from the two-year, Phase 3 ADVANCE clinical trial confirm that PLEGRIDY’s positive effects on reducing disease activity and disability progression were maintained in year two of the study. A significantly higher proportion of patients taking PLEGRIDY during both years of the study experienced no evidence of disease activity – defined as the absence of clinical and MRI disease activity over two years of treatment – compared to those who switched to PLEGRIDY from placebo. Also, those treated with PLEGRIDY for both years of the study had significant reductions in the risk of 24-week confirmed disability progression compared to patients treated with placebo during the first year. In addition, new data from the second year of ADVANCE show that patients who took PLEGRIDY throughout the study experienced statistically significant improvements in clinical and MRI outcomes – including annualized relapse rate, risk of relapse, risk of 24-week confirmed disability progression, and number of brain lesions – when compared to those who switched to PLEGRIDY after taking placebo for the first year. This new data also showed that the safety profile of PLEGRIDY was consistent between years one and two of the study.
