12:33 EDTAPOL, XLRN, MON, LQDT, MNKD, CELG, AGUOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday after payroll provider ADP estimated that employers added 191K jobs in March. The jobs addition was slightly less than expected, but a figure near 200K still may add confidence that Friday's jobs report from the Department of Labor may be an encouraging one. ECONOMIC EVENTS: ADP estimated that private payrolls increased 191K in March, which fell just short of the 193K consensus estimate. Factory orders grew by 1.6% in February, versus expectations for an increase of 1.2% in the month. COMPANY NEWS: Agribusiness giant Monsanto (MON) rose 1.5% after reporting better than expected earnings and revenue for its just-completed second quarter and confirming its fiscal year profit guidance. Another agricultural products maker, fertilizer producer Agrium (AGU), slid over 2% after warning that the late spring season this year is expected to impact the timing of its wholesale, and to a lesser extent its retail, earnings. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was MannKind (MNKD), which surged more than 77% after an FDA advisory panel voted to recommend its Afrezza inhalation powder to treat type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Also higher was Acceleron Pharma (XLRN), which rose 15% after its larger partner Celgene (CELG) reached a deal to raise its stake in Acceleron to 14.8% by acquiring 1.1M Acceleron shares from five current stockholders. Among the noteworthy losers was Liquidity Services (LQDT), which dropped 11% after RW Baird said the company's high bid for the Non-Rolling Stock portion of the Defense Logistics Agency’s surplus liquidation contract is "quite a bit" higher than it expected. Also lower was Apollo Education (APOL), which fell 8% near noon despite an upgrade of its shares at Wells Fargo after the company's Q2 revenue missed expectations and it also disclosed the receipt of a subpoena by its University of Phoenix unit from the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Education. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 19.39, or 0.12%, to 16,552.00, the Nasdaq was up 5.39, or 0.13%, to 4,273.43, and the S&P 500 was up 4.81, or 0.26%, to 1,890.33.

14:27 EDTMONWHO says herbicide marketed by Monsanto likely carcinogenic, WSJ says
A World Health Organization agency said Friday that Glyphosate, a herbicide marketed by Monsanto under the Roundup brand and other companies, has the potential to cause cancer in humans, says the Wall Street Journal. Monsanto contested the findings saying that glyphosate is safe if used as recommended by its label and that decades of extensive study have proven its safety, added the Wall Street Journal.

13:04 EDTCELGCelgene reports results from long-term efficacy,safety analyses of Otezla trials
Celgene announced that results from long-term efficacy and safety analyses of the ESTEEM phase III clinical trial program of Otezla were presented at the 73rd Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology. OTEZLA is the company’s oral, selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4 approved for the treatment of patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for phototherapy or systemic therapy and for the treatment of adults with active psoriatic arthritis. In ESTEEM 1 and 2, patients were randomized to treatment with OTEZLA 30 mg twice daily or placebo for the first 16 weeks. At week 16, patients either continued on OTEZLA or were switched from placebo to OTEZLA 30 mg twice daily through week 32. Patients initially randomized to OTEZLA who achieved a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index-75 response or PASI-50 response at week 32 were then re-randomized to either OTEZLA 30 mg twice daily or placebo. Celgene said improvements in the severity of preexisting nail, scalp and palmoplantar psoriasis achieved at week 16 were maintained in OTEZLA responders through week 52 in ESTEEM 2; OTEZLA improved the severity of palmoplantar psoriasis at week 16 in a subset of patients across three trials; Long-term safety profile for up to 104 weeks in ESTEEM 1 was consistent with previously reported data from OTEZLA clinical trial programs, with no new safety signals and no clinically meaningful changes in laboratory values.
13:01 EDTCELGCelgene announces positive Phase III study results evaluating Otezla
Celgene announced that results from its ongoing phase III LIBERATE trial evaluating Otezla, the company’s oral, selective inhibitor of phosphodiesterase 4, in patients with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. The LIBERATE study evaluated the clinical efficacy and safety of either oral OTEZLA 30 mg twice daily or weekly subcutaneous etanercept 50 mg compared with placebo at week 16 in 250 patients who had no prior exposure to a biological therapy. It also examined the relative safety of a switch from etanercept to OTEZLA after week 16. At week 16, patients receiving OTEZLA 30 mg twice daily demonstrated statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement when compared with placebo, as measured by the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index-75 response. At week 16, statistical significance was also achieved for patients receiving weekly injections of etanercept 50 mg when compared with placebo. A post-hoc analysis revealed no significant difference between OTEZLA and etanercept in PASI-75 at week 16. LIBERATE was not designed or powered to directly compare OTEZLA to etanercept.
