13:30 EDTMRKMerck announces data from pivotal Phase 3 study for odanacatib
Merck announced data from the pivotal Phase 3 fracture outcomes study for odanacatib in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Odanacatib is Merck’s investigational once-weekly cathepsin K inhibitor. In the Long-Term Odanacatib Fracture Trial, odanacatib met its primary endpoints and significantly reduced the risk of osteoporotic hip, spine and non-vertebral fractures compared with placebo. The rates of adverse events overall in LOFT were generally balanced between patients taking odanacatib and placebo. Adjudicated events of morphea-like skin lesions and atypical femoral fractures occurred more often in the odanacatib group than in the placebo group. Adjudicated major adverse cardiovascular events were generally balanced overall between the treatment groups. There were numerically more adjudicated stroke events with odanacatib than with placebo.

09:02 EDTMRKMerck's relebactam granted QIDP, fast track designations by FDA
Merck announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has designated relebactam -- previously known as MK-7655 -- the company’s investigational beta-lactamase inhibitor, as a Qualified Infectious Disease Product with designated Fast Track status. The QIDP and Fast Track designations apply to intravenous use of relebactam for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections, complicated intra-abdominal infections and hospital-acquired bacterial pneumonia/ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia. Relebactam is an investigational, class A and C, beta-lactamase inhibitor that is being evaluated in combination with imipenem/cilastatin in ongoing Phase 2 clinical trials for the treatment of complicated urinary tract infections and complicated intra-abdominal infections. In preclinical studies, relebactam administered in combination with imipenem/cilastatin demonstrated antibacterial activity against a broad range of Gram-negative and beta-lactam-resistant pathogens. Merck plans to initiate Phase 3 studies with relebactam in combination with imipenem/cilastatin in 2015.
07:21 EDTMRKMedidata can obtain major new platform customers, says Stifel
Noting that Medidata (MDSO) partners with Veeva, Stifel believes that a number of Veeva (VEEV) customers could become Medidata platform customers, especially if they already use Medidata for R&D and clinical trial solutions. The firm identifies Merck (MRK), Gilead (GILD), and Teva (TEVA) as companies that may become platform clients for Medidata. Stifel keeps a $55 price target and Buy rating on Medidata.
