08:18 EDTTEVA, MNTA, MYL, NVSMomenta Pharma rises after high court rejects Copaxone delay bid
Shares of Momenta Pharmaceuticals (MNTA) are higher in pre-market trading after the Supreme Court denied Teva's (TEVA) request to delay the launch of generic forms of its relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis product, Copaxone. WHAT'S NEW: Teva confirmed on April 19 that the Chief Justice of the United States denied the company's application for an injunction seeking to prevent the launch of a generic version of Copaxone. Teva will continue pursuing its appeal in the Supreme Court and defending its intellectual property for Copaxone, the company said. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Momenta has developed a generic version of Copaxone in partnership with Novartis' (NVS) Sandoz unit. Mylan, which is preparing to launch a generic version of Copaxone as well, said after the ruling: "We are pleased with the Chief Justice's decision, and we look forward to introducing the first generic Copaxone treatment for multiple sclerosis patients in the U.S. at market formation. Mylan remains eligible to receive approval from the U.S. FDA on May 25, 2014." PRICE ACTION: In pre-market trading, Momenta shares are up over 12% to $12.46, while Mylan shares are up more than 3% to $48.48. Teva shares trading in New York are down about 1.7% to $50 in pre-market trading.

14:23 EDTTEVAReceptos price target raised to $348 at Wedbush on M&A potential
Wedbush analysts Liana Moussatos and Kelechi Chikere said they'd interpreted Receptos (RCPT) comments with its earnings report in May about its ability to commercialize ozanimod on its own as a message to potential buyers that their bids were too low. Following a recent report from Proactive Investors, which claimed that Receptos had turned down bids of $200 per share from AstraZeneca (AZN) and $280 per share from Teva (TEVA) and Gilead (GILD), the analysts said they have reconsidered their valuation assumptions, as they believe these bid values could be accurate. Wedbush raised its fair value estimate on Receptos to $348 from $211, citing a belief in increased industry interest in ozanimod and the rest of Receptos’ pipeline, and maintains an Outperform rating on the stock.

09:10 EDTMYLAbbott confirms support for Mylan's proposed acquisition of Perrigo
Abbott (BT) confirmed its continued support for Mylan (MYL) N.V's growth strategy by stating its intent to vote its 14.5% stake in Mylan in favor of Mylan's proposed acquisition of Perrigo (PRGO). "We chose Mylan to acquire our developed markets branded generics pharmaceuticals because its scale and breadth across critical distribution channels, broad and diverse portfolio, and commitment to patients and product quality strongly positions it for success in the years to come," said Abbott. "As both Mylan's largest shareholder and its partner through our continued manufacturing relationships, Abbott has considered the entire situation and we believe Mylan's standalone strategy and acquisition of Perrigo will further enhance its platform, is strategically compelling, value enhancing for shareholders, and offers a clear path to completion. In light of these factors, we will be voting in favor of the Perrigo transaction."

08:05 EDTTEVATeva reports ARM-TD study meets primary endpoint
Teva Pharmaceutical (TEVA) announced positive top-line results from the pivotal clinical study Aim to Reduce Movements in Tardive Dyskinesia, or ARM-TD, designed to evaluate the efficacy of SD-809 in the treatment of moderate to severe tardive dyskinesia. Top-line data showed that the study met its primary endpoint and demonstrated a positive trend in all secondary endpoints. The primary endpoint of ARM-TD was the change in the Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale, or AIMS, from baseline to end of therapy, assessed by blinded centralized video rating. The study results show patients taking SD-809 achieved an improvement of 3.0 points on the AIMS score from baseline to end of therapy compared to 1.6 points in placebo for a clinically meaningful effect. Study results also demonstrated a favorable safety and tolerability profile of SD-809. Fewer patients taking SD-809 than placebo experienced serious adverse events. Three patients discontinued from the study for adverse events. For all other side effects reported in the study, rates in the SD-809 group were similar or lower than the placebo group. Further analysis of the additional data from the study is ongoing and details will be shared at future medical meetings and through peer-reviewed publication, the company said. SD-809 became part of Teva’s central nervous system product portfolio with the acquisition of Auspex Pharmaceuticals in May.
