08:01 EDTGSKGE Healthcare to collaborate with GlaxoSmithKline in commercial oncology testing
GE Healthcare (GE) announced an agreement between its affiliate, Clarient Diagnostic Services, and GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). The collaboration aims to improve access to diagnostic testing for cancer patients by establishing a network of clinical laboratories to identify genetic mutations associated with different tumour types. The collaboration will enable GE to develop a broader laboratory and data analytics service that will enable better efficiency in the healthcare market related to oncology precision medicine. This will be made available as a subscription-based service and operated by GE Healthcare. Under terms of the agreement with GSK, GE Healthcare, through its Clarient affiliate, will initially use its clinical laboratory, pathology and genomics expertise, to certify laboratories and generate diagnostic data on metastatic melanoma patients. The first Clarient certified laboratories to initiate this work, are expected to be operational in several countries in early 2015. Laboratory testing will initially focus on more than 70 mutations relevant to melanoma, including BRAF V600E and V600K, with the opportunity to expand testing beyond melanoma into other tumor types, as the network of clinical laboratories develops.
07:32 EDTSRPTSarepta announces favorable safety results from Phase 1 AVI-7100 study
Sarepta Therapeutics announced favorable safety results from the single ascending dose portion of a Phase I study of AVI-7100, the company’s lead candidate for the treatment of influenza virus, in healthy volunteers. The clinical trial is being conducted at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through a collaboration between the company and the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. AVI-7100 uses Sarepta’s advanced and proprietary PMOplus chemistry, which is also the basis of the company’s clinical-stage Ebola and Marburg drug candidates. The Phase I clinical study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial designed to characterize the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single and multiple doses of an intravenous formulation of AVI-7100 in healthy adult volunteers. In the completed single ascending dose portion, 40 subjects were enrolled in five cohorts up to the highest dose tested of 8 mg/kg AVI-7100. Results showed that AVI-7100 was well-tolerated with no reported serious or clinically significant adverse events. The pharmacokinetic analysis of AVI-7100 reveals a highly similar dose-dependent profile to that of Sarepta’s Ebola and Marburg PMOplus drug candidates. An independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board reviewed safety results from the study and recommended the study continue as planned to the multiple dose portion of the study.
