16:33 EDTGILDGilead 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 Gilead’s 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-naïve 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 FDA’s 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 Gilead’s 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.

08:39 EDTMRKMerck says Phase 3 Emend data shows it provides 'greater protection' from nausea
Merck announced results from a Phase 3 study investigating the safety and efficacy of single-dose Emend for Injection, Merck’s substance P/neurokinin receptor antagonist, in combination with other anti-vomiting medicines, for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, or CINV, in adult cancer patients receiving moderately emetogenic chemotherapy, or MEC. In the study, the first to evaluate an intravenous NK-1 receptor antagonist for the prevention of CINV associated with MEC, the single-dose Emend for Injection regimen provided greater protection from nausea and vomiting following administration of chemotherapy versus an active control of placebo with other anti-vomiting medicines. These data were presented in an oral session at the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer/International Society of Oral Oncology Annual Meeting on “Supportive Care in Cancer” in Copenhagen.

09:07 EDTMRKCAR-T cancer drug researchers seen as M&A targets, Bloomberg says
Juno Therapeutics (JUNO), Kite Pharma (KITE) and Bluebird Bio (BLUE) are trading well above their IPO levels as takeovers predictions have spurred interest and share increases for the developers of CAR-T gene therapies, said Bloomberg's "Real M&A" column, quoting Dimo Dimov, a professor at the University of Bath’s School of Management, as having said that companies such as Pfizer (PFE), Merck (MRK), Roche (RHHBY) and AstraZeneca (AZN) are "closely watching" the firms. Cellectis (CLLS), which is working with Pfizer on its own approach to CAR-T therapy, has said it wants to bring its therapy to market and doesn’t anticipate a sale, the report noted. Reference Link
