16:16 EDTMACK, SNYMerrimack to regain worldwide rights to commercialize MM-121
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals (MACK) announced that it has reached an agreement with Sanofi (SNY) to regain worldwide rights to develop and commercialize MM-121, a monoclonal antibody designed to block ErbB3, or HER3, activation in patients with heregulin-positive tumors and improve response to standard of care treatments. In partnership with Sanofi, Merrimack completed an extensive Phase 2 program for MM-121 which was designed to assess the role of ErbB3 in a number of cancer indications in both the metastatic and neoadjuvant settings. In advanced settings of ovarian cancer, ER/PR+ HER2 negative breast cancer and non-small cell lung cancer, Merrimack was able to identify that heregulin, the principal ligand that binds to and activates the ErbB3 receptor, is associated with poor response to standard of care therapy and that adding MM-121 may restore sensitivity in these most at-risk patients. Consistent across three metastatic cancer indications with three different standard of care therapies, patients in these trials with heregulin-positive tumors experienced a statistically significant reduction in their risk of progression when they received a combination with MM-121. Heregulin-driven drug resistance pathways were found to be active in approximately 30%-50% of patients tested.

16:31 EDTSNYRegeneron, Sanofi announce plan to use priority review voucher for alirocumab
Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) and Sanofi (SNY) announced that the companies intend to use a FDA rare pediatric disease priority review voucher in connection with the Biologics License Application, or BLA, submission for alirocumab. The priority review voucher entitles the holder to designate a BLA for priority review, which provides for an expedited 6-month review from the filing date instead of the standard 10-month review. Regeneron Ireland, an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, purchased the voucher from BioMarin GALNS, a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of BioMarin Pharmaceutical (BMRN), which had received it through the FDA's rare pediatric disease priority review voucher program. Sanofi and Regeneron will equally share the purchase price of $67.5M. Sanofi and Regeneron expect to submit U.S. and EU regulatory submissions for alirocumab before year end.
