13:40 EDTJNJ, MDVNJ&J results imply strength for Medivation drug, says William Blair
William Blair believes Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) Q4 results this morning, which included the trending down of sales for its metastatic prostate cancer drug Zytiga, implies strength for Medivation's (MDVN) Xtandi. The firm believes J&J's decreased sales of Zytiga in Q4 were largely due to competitor Xtandi's U.S. launch in September. William Blair keeps an Outperform rating on shares of Medivation, which are trading up 4% to $57.10 after J&J's results.

16:33 EDTJNJGilead submits NDA to FDA for single tablet regimen for HIV containing R/F/TAF
Gilead Sciences (GILD) announced that it has submitted a New Drug Application, or NDA, to the FDA for an investigational, once-daily single tablet regimen that combines Gileadís emtricitabine 200 mg and tenofovir alafenamide, or TAF, 25 mg with rilpivirine 25 mg, or R/F/TAF, from Janssen Sciences Ireland UC, one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adult and pediatric patients 12 years of age and older. The data submitted in the NDA support the use of R/F/TAF among patients who are HIV treatment-naÔve or who are virologically suppressed and want to replace their current antiretroviral treatment regimen. A Priority Review voucher acquired from Knight Therapeutics in November 2014 was submitted to the FDA along with the R/F/TAF NDA. Under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act, or PDUFA, the anticipated target action date for the R/F/TAF NDA is six months after the FDAís acceptance of the filing. TAF is a novel, investigational nucleotide reverse transcriptase inhibitor, or NRTI, that has demonstrated high antiviral efficacy at a dose less than one-tenth that of Gileadís Viread, as well as improved renal and bone laboratory parameters as compared to TDF in clinical trials in combination with other antiretroviral agents. In addition to R/F/TAF, two other TAF-based HIV treatments are also under FDA review.

UBS noted Medivation shares have been weak since ASCO but believes the risk reward has been skewed to the upside. The firm said its thesis is different from consensus as they believe the company's pipeline advancement this year could drive multiple expansion if Xtandi sales can at least remain flat. UBS reiterated its Buy rating and $142 price target on Medivation shares.
