18:55 EDTJAZZJazz Pharmaceuticals presents data from Erwinaze safety trial
Jazz Pharmaceuticals announced that data from the largest safety trial to date of patients treated with Erwinaze have been presented at the American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting and Exposition. The poster presentation is based on results of a compassionate use protocol in patients who received Erwinaze as part of a multi-agent chemotherapeutic regimen for acute lymphoblastic leukemia who developed a hypersensitivity to E.coli-derived asparaginase. The poster summarizes the safety results in 940 patients at participating U.S. oncology treatment centers between February 2006 and November 2011, when Erwinaze was available under a compassionate use protocol prior to its approval by the FDA in November 2011. The trial includes additional follow up data that further describe the incidence of adverse events associated with Erwinaze treatment, which are consistent with the known safety profile of Erwinaze.

09:20 EDTJAZZCelgene patent latest to be challenged by Hayman Capital's Bass
The Coalition For Affordable Drugs, a group linked to Hayman Capital's Kyle Bass, has requested an Inter Partes Review of Claims 110 of U.S. Patent No. 6,045,501 held by Celgene (CELG), according to a USPTO filing. The 501 patent claims methods for delivering a drug, including a teratogenic drug, to a patient while preventing the exposure of a fetus or other contraindicated individuals to the drug. The patent is related to the company's Revlimid drug. BACKGROUND: Previously, the same coalition requested an Inter Partes Review of patents held by Pharmacyclics (PCYC), Acorda Therapeutics (ACOR), Shire (SHPG) and Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ). On January 7, Reuters reported that Bass planned to take "around 15 pharmaceutical companies with a combined market capitalization of $450B" into an Inter Partes Review for extending patents in questionable ways, citing a presentation made by Bass in Oslo. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Celgene are down 0.5% to $114.92 in pre-market trading.
