08:33 EDTRHHBYHalozyme and Ventana enter into global agreement to develop companion diagnostic
Halozyme (HALO) and Ventana Medical Systems, a member of the Roche (RHHBY), announced a global agreement to collaborate on the development of, and for Ventana to ultimately commercialize, a companion diagnostic assay for use with Halozyme's investigational new drug, PEGPH20. The Ventana assay will be used to identify high levels of hyaluronan. HA is a glycosaminoglycan that can accumulate around cancer cells. Halozyme has announced plans for rollout of a global phase 3 clinical study in 2016 targeting metastatic pancreatic cancer patients with high HA levels using its PEGPH20 in combination with ABRAXANE and gemcitabine. Under the agreement, Ventana will develop an in vitro diagnostic, under design control, using Halozyme's proprietary HA binding protein, with the intent of submitting it for regulatory approval in the United States, Europe and other countries. The financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
08:01 EDTSNYRetrophin agrees to sell Pediatric PRV to Sanofi
Retrophin (RTRX) announced an agreement to sell its Rare Pediatric Disease Priority Review Voucher to Sanofi (SNY). Retrophin received the Pediatric PRV when Cholbam was approved by the U.S. FDA for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients suffering from bile acid synthesis disorders due to single enzyme defects, and for patients with peroxisomal disorders. Upon closing of the transaction, Retrophin will receive a payment of $150M, followed by two equal installments of $47.5M in 2016 and 2017. The company will receive a total consideration of $245M in cash from Sanofi in exchange for the Pediatric PRV. The voucher was awarded by the FDA under a provision that encourages development of new drugs and biologics for the prevention and treatment of rare pediatric diseases. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act.

14:48 EDTSNYRegeneron primary driver remains Praluent, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray noted that Regeneron (REGN) shares are at all-time highs after the company and partner Sanofi reported Phase IIb data on Dupilumab and Phase III data on Sarilumab. However, the firm believes the primary driver for Regeneron remains Praluent and firm expects launch costs to outstrip sales growth. Piper acknowledges Regeneron has "one of the richest pipelines in all of biotech," but it sees risk around Amgen's (AMGN) patent suit and keeps its Neutral rating and $484 price target on the stock.

06:55 EDTSNYGenocea could be takeover target after data, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff expects Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) will report positive Phase II GEN-003 post-immunization results late in Q2. GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target. Shares of the clinical-stage vaccine developer with a $227M market capitalization closed yesterday up 83c to $10.22.
