14:25 EDTGSKGlaxo, Genmab report Phase III ofatumumab study did not meet primary endpoint
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Genmab (GNSMF) announced that the Phase III study of ofatumumab versus physicians' choice in patients with bulky fludarabine-refractory chronic lymphocytic leukaemia did not meet its primary endpoint of progression free survival. The median PFS, as assessed by the Independent Review Committee, was 5.36 months for ofatumumab and 3.61 months for physicians' choice. The result reported today is headline data; the full analysis of safety and efficacy data is underway and will be completed in the coming months. "It was our priority to share this result with the scientific community as soon it became available. We will now work to further analyse the data and to better understand the totality of the efficacy and safety findings," said Dr. Rafael Amado, Head of Oncology R&D at GSK. "Although ofatumumab performed broadly in-line with previous data, today's result is disappointing. Based on this result, we do not anticipate applying for a label expansion for ofatumumab in this specific refractory CLL population," said Jan van de Winkel, Ph.D., CEO of Genmab.

07:01 EDTGSKPfizer to acquire Nimenrix, Mencevax from GlaxoSmithKline for $130M
Pfizer (PFE) announced that it has entered into an agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to acquire its quadrivalent meningitis ACWY vaccines, Nimenrix and Mencevax, for a total consideration of approximately $130M. This transaction will add two high-quality and complementary vaccines to Pfizer’s portfolio, allowing the company to reach a broader global population. Nimenrix is a single dose meningococcal ACWY-TT conjugated vaccine designed to protect against Neisseria meningitidis, an uncommon but highly contagious disease that can lead to disability and death. Mencevax is a single-dose meningococcal ACWY unconjugated polysaccharide vaccine used to control outbreaks of meningococcal infection and for travelers to countries where the disease is endemic or highly epidemic. Pfizer does not expect this transaction to have any significant impact on its 2015 financial performance. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions as well as regulatory approvals in several markets, and is expected to occur in the second half of 2015. Pfizer’s legal advisors for the transaction were Ropes & Gray and Clifford Chance.
