07:08 EDTGSK, ISISIsis Pharmaceuticals initiates Phase 2/3 study of ISIS-TTR Rx
Isis Pharmaceuticals (ISIS) has earned a $7.5M milestone payment from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) related to the initiation of a Phase 2/3 clinical study for ISIS-TTRRx. ISIS-TTRRx is an antisense drug in development with GlaxoSmithKline for the treatment of transthyretin amyloidosis, a severe and rare genetic disease characterized by progressive dysfunction of peripheral nerve and/or heart tissues. Isis and GSK recently amended the clinical development plan and financial terms relating to ISIS-TTRRx to support this registration-directed Phase 2/3 clinical study on ISIS-TTRRx. The Phase 2/3 study of ISIS-TTRRx is a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, international study designed to support an application for marketing approval of ISIS-TTRRx in patients with FAP. The fifteen month study will enroll approximately 200 patients randomized 2:1 to receive 300 mg/week of ISIS-TTRRx or placebo and will measure the effects of ISIS-TTRRx on neurological dysfunction and on quality-of-life. The United States Food and Drug administration granted ISIS-TTRRx fast track designation and orphan drug status for the treatment of FAP.

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.
