05:38 EDTAZN, INCYIncyte, MedImmune collaborate on immuno-oncology combination clinical trial
Incyte (INCY) and MedImmune, the global biologics research and development arm of AstraZeneca (AZN), announced that they have entered into a clinical study collaboration. The Phase I/II oncology study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of MedImmune’s investigational anti-PD-L1 immune checkpoint inhibitor, MEDI4736, in combination with Incyte’s oral indoleamine dioxygenase-1 inhibitor, INCB24360. Under the terms of the agreement, MedImmune and Incyte will collaborate on a non-exclusive basis on the study, to evaluate the combination in multiple solid tumors including metastatic melanoma, non-small cell lung cancer, squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and pancreatic cancer. The Phase I part of the trial is expected to establish a recommended dose regimen of both MEDI4736 and INCB24360 and the Phase II part of the study will assess the safety and efficacy of the combination. Results from the study will be used to determine whether further clinical development of this combination is warranted. The study will be co-funded equally by Incyte and MedImmune and conducted by Incyte.

13:32 EDTAZNBiotechs plummet with TPP seen as industry negative
Biotechs are falling intraday after reports that the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP, has language that the exclusivity period for bioligics, or drugs derived from a biological sources, would be eight years, less than the twelve years it is currently in the United States. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In the U.S., biologics are protected from competition by follow-on products for twelve years from the time they are first granted marketing approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a protection that is distinct from patent protection. Recent reports on the TPP suggest that the protection will last five years with an additional safety monitoring period of up to three years before a biosimilar can be registered, which would effectively be an eight year exclusivity period. ANALYST REACTION: Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer, however, said the development is a "step forward," especially since it does not overrule the 12 years' exclusivity for the drugs in the U.S. While the sector asked for twelve years' exclusivity to match the U.S., eight years is a "reasonable compromise," the analyst argued. His top picks were Alexion (ALXN), Celgene (CELG), and Amgen (AMGN) in the large-cap space, GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH) and bluebird bio (BLUE) among mid-caps, and Flex Pharma (FLKS), Lion Biotechnologies (LBIO), Otonomy (OTIC), and Ignyta (RXDX) in the small-cap sector. Further, Schimmer stated that more names look "increasingly compelling" amid the selloff. NOTABLE DECLINERS: Alexion is lower by 2.53%, Celgene is down 4.32%, Amgen is declining 1.91%, Biogen (BIIB) is down 3.4%, and Gilead Sciences (GILD) is falling 2.22%. STOCKS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the pharmaceutical space include AstraZeneca (AZN), Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK), Novartis (NVS), Pfizer (PFE), Roche (RHHBY) and Sanofi (SNY).
