11:09 EDTLLYFTC puts conditions on Lilly's proposed acquisition of Novartis Animal Health
Global pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly and Company (LLY) has agreed to divest its Sentinel product line of medications for treating heartworm disease in dogs in order to settle FTC charges that its proposed $5.4B acquisition of Novartis (NVS) Animal Health would likely be anticompetitive. Under the proposed settlement, Eli Lilly will divest its Sentinel product line and associated assets to the French pharmaceutical company, Virbac. Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly, through its Elanco Animal Health division, and Switzerland-based Novartis AG’s Novartis Animal Health business unit both develop and market a wide range of animal health products, including medications to treat diseases and conditions affecting pets and livestock.

05:34 EDTPSTIPluristem Therapeutics reports new data shows PLX cells protect neurons
Pluristem Therapeutics announced that a study of PLacental eXpanded, or PLX, cells was accepted for publication in the February, 2015 issue of Biochimica et Biophysica Acta Molecular Cell Research. The study results show that PLX cells protect PC12 cells – an established model of various nerve cells including dopaminergic neurons – from death after oxygen and glucose deprivation. The protective effects of PLX cells were strongly correlated with the secretion of interleukin 6 and vascular endothelial growth factor, which are known to have neuroprotective effects in humans with injuries to the nervous system that can occur after events such as a stroke.

08:03 EDTPFEPfizer reports statistically significant results in Phase 3 pregabalin study
Pfizer announced top-line results from a double-blind Phase 3 study evaluating pregabalin controlled-release formulation in adult patients with postherpetic neuralgia. The results show that pregabalin CR resulted in a statistically significant positive effect compared to placebo in the primary endpoint, time to loss of therapeutic response in pain reduction. PHN is a type of peripheral neuropathic pain caused by nerve damage. Symptoms include continued burning or electric shock-like pain.1 This study is the final of three Phase 3 studies of the pregabalin CR formulation conducted to ascertain the potential use of pregabalin as a once-a-day therapy. The first study in adults with partial onset seizures with epilepsy did not meet its primary endpoint. In the second study in patients with fibromyalgia, pregabalin CR had a statistically significant positive effect compared to placebo in the primary endpoint, time to LTR in pain reduction. The objective of the Phase 3 double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of pregabalin CR compared with placebo in the durability of effect for the treatment of pain associated with PHN among patients who initially respond to single-blind pregabalin.

10:40 EDTPFEOPKO Health deal with Pfizer removes financing overhang, says Ladenburg
Ladenburg views the agreement OPKO Health (OPK) signed with Pfizer (PFE) as a significant positive catalyst since the company is partnering with an established leader in short-acting hGH and because the large upfront payment removes near-term financing needs as an overhang on the stock. The firm reiterates its Buy rating and $14.50 price target on OPKO, but said it will re-examine its projections after the deal closes.

10:32 EDTPFEPfizer says in talks with FDA on path forward for Mylotarg
Pfizer announced the presentation of encouraging early- and late-stage data from clinical studies across several hematologic malignancies, including acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia and chronic myeloid leukemia. Among the highlights are results from several investigator-led, large, randomized studies evaluating the antibody-drug conjugate MYLOTARG in select adult AML populations. Research was presented at the 56th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco, December 6-9. Mace Rothenberg, senior vice president of Clinical Development and Medical Affairs and chief medical officer for Pfizer Oncology, said “In particular, we are encouraged by the significant clinical evidence emerging from large randomized trials, such as AML-19 and ALFA-0701, demonstrating a positive impact of MYLOTARG when added to standard first-line treatment for patients with acute myeloid leukemia. We are engaging in discussions with the U.S. FDA and other health authorities to determine the best path forward for MYLOTARG. In addition, we plan to initiate an expanded access protocol for the therapy by the end of 2014 in the United States in patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia for whom there are no other treatment options.”

13:32 EDTPFEPfizer, Bristol-Myers announce results of human study on Eliquis
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY) and Pfizer (PFE) announced results of the first human study evaluating the reversal of the anticoagulant effect of Eliquis by 4-factor prothrombin complex concentrates in healthy subjects. The study results demonstrated that both PCCs, Sanquin’s Cofact and CSL Behring’s Beriplex P/N reversed the steady-state pharmacodynamic effects of Eliquis in several coagulation assessments, including endogenous thrombin potential. The full data will be presented today during the Antithrombotic Therapy: Anticoagulant Therapy session at the 56th annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco, CA. The study was an open label, randomized, placebo-controlled, three-period crossover study in 15 healthy, adult subjects. Within each period, subjects received Eliquis 10 mg twice daily. On day four, three hours after Eliquis administration, subjects received a 30-minute infusion of 4-factor PCCs, either 50 IU/kg Cofact or Beriplex P/N, or an equivalent volume of saline solution. The effect of Cofact and Beriplex P/N on the pharmacodynamics of Eliquis was based upon changes in endogenous thrombin potential, a measure of thrombin-mediated coagulation. Treatment periods were separated by an 11-day washout, after which the alternate treatment was administered. In this study, no serious adverse events, bleeding-related events or signs of thrombosis were reported with Eliquis administration with or without PCC treatment. Overall, these data demonstrate that Cofact and Beriplex P/N reversed the steady-state pharmacodynamic effects of Eliquis as measured by ETP and support further evaluation of PCCs in the management of patients treated with Eliquis who require reversal of its anticoagulant effect.
