16:41 EDTPFEPfizer confirms FDA labeling approval for EMBEDA capsules
Pfizer announced that the FDA has approved an updated label for EMBEDA extended-release capsules, for oral use to include abuse-deterrence studies. The updated label states that EMBEDA has properties that are expected to reduce abuse via the oral and intranasal routes when crushed. However, abuse of EMBEDA by these routes is still possible. The updated label also includes data from a human abuse potential study of intravenous, or IV, morphine and naltrexone to simulate crushed EMBEDA. However, it is unknown whether the results with simulated crushed EMBEDA predict a reduction in abuse by the IV route until additional postmarketing data are available. EMBEDA is indicated for the management of pain severe enough to require daily, around-the-clock, long-term opioid treatment and for which alternative treatment options are inadequate. Pfizer expects EMBEDA will be available in the U.S. in early 2015.

14:36 EDTLLYLilly to close Guayama facility, will take 16c charge in Q4
Eli Lilly announced plans to conclude production and pursue a sale of one of its three manufacturing plants in Puerto Rico. The manufacturing site, located in Guayama, Puerto Rico, will remain in operation until the end of 2015. All of the approximately 100 full-time non-contracted employees currently working in Guayama will be offered employment at Lilly's Carolina, Puerto Rico, location. As a result of this action, the company expects to record a charge of approximately $170M or approximately 16c per share, after tax, in Q414. While Lilly will initiate efforts to sell the Guayama site, the company will continue to invest in two manufacturing plants at Carolina. In November 2013, Lilly announced a $200M investment to increase capacity in its Carolina-based insulin active ingredient manufacturing plant. In July, Lilly announced an additional $40M in investments to increase capabilities at its Carolina-based drug product site as part of a rebalancing of Lilly's oral solid dosage network.

08:09 EDTPFEPfizer presents LP2086 Phase 2 study data
Pfizer announced it will present the results of a Phase 2, randomized study to evaluate co-administration of the company’s investigational meningococcal group B vaccine, bivalent recombinant LP2086, or rLP2086, with a licensed quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine at IDWeek 2014. Data demonstrated immune responses to both vaccines were generated after concomitant administration of bivalent rLP2086 and HPV4. Prespecified noninferiority criteria were met for the bivalent rLP2086 antigens studied and three of the four antigens for HPV4. Primary immunogenicity endpoints, measured after the third dose, included geometric mean titers against HPV antigens in Groups 1 and 3 and human complement serum bactericidal assay GMTs against meningococcal group B disease test strains in Groups 1 and 2. Secondary immunogenicity endpoints included the rate of seroconversion to HPV antigens. Safety of bivalent rLP2086 was assessed after concomitant administration with HPV4 or saline. The prespecified noninferiority criteria were met for three of four HPV antigens and both meningococcal group B disease test strains. Seroconversion for all four HPV antigens was achieved by 99% or more of the subjects for the groups that received HPV4 concomitantly with bivalent rLP2086 or with saline. More local reactions occurred following administration of bivalent rLP2086 compared with saline but the incidence of these reactions did not increase with subsequent vaccine administration. The rates of local and systemic reactions were comparable when bivalent rLP2086 was given with HPV4 to bivalent rLP2086 given alone.
