08:36 EDTBMYBristol-Myers announces data from Phase IIb BMS-663068 trial
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company announced data from a Phase IIb trial of investigational compound BMS-663068, designed as an HIV-1 attachment inhibitor, in treatment-experienced HIV-1 patients. In the study, which compared BMS-663068 to a pharmacoenhanced protease inhibitor, virologic response rates and immunologic reconstitution were similar across the BMS-663068 and Reyataz/ritonavir arms of the trial through 48 weeks. Specifically, 61-82% of BMS-663068 patients had HIV-1 RNA levels <50 c/mL, compared to 71% of Reyataz/ritonavir patients at week 48. HIV-1 RNA levels <50 c/mL typically indicate virus replication is undetectable. Treatment with BMS-663068 resulted in no dose response safety signals, no treatment discontinuations related to adverse events, and no treatment-related serious adverse events over the course of the trial. The most common AEs were headache and abdominal pain. Due to the positive results seen thus far, a Phase III clinical trial of the attachment inhibitor among heavily treatment-experienced patients began on Monday, February 23, 2015. For the purposes of the Phase III trial, heavily treatment-experienced patients are defined as individuals who can no longer formulate a viable regimen due to accumulation of drug resistance, past intolerabilities or antiretroviral contraindications. The Phase IIb study results, presented yesterday at the 22nd Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, highlight the novel mechanism of action of the investigational prodrug BMS-663068, which when converted into its active moiety BMS-626529, is designed to bind directly to the HIV gp120 protein, and prevents initial viral attachment to the host CD4+ T cell and entry into the host immune cell.

07:46 EDTBMYJacobs Engineering awarded contract from Bristol-Myers
Jacobs Engineering Group (JEC) announced that it received a contract from Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMY) to provide architectural and engineering services for a new large-scale biologics manufacturing facility in Cruiserath, County Dublin, Ireland. The facility is being designed to produce multiple therapies for the company’s robust and growing portfolio of approved and investigational biologic medicines, and to increase Bristol-Myers Squibb’s biologics manufacturing capacity. The new facility is expected to include multiple large scale bioreactors, a purification area, as well as office and laboratory space. Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Board of Directors has approved initial funding that will support the first phase of the project, with the full cost of the facility expected to be finalized in the second half of 2015. The facility is estimated to be operational in 2019.

08:15 EDTBMYRigel Pharmaceuticals and Bristol-Myers announces R&D collaboration agreement
Rigel Pharmaceuticals (RIGL) and Bristol-Myers (BMY) announced that they have entered into a collaboration agreement for the discovery, development and commercialization of cancer immunotherapies based on Rigel's extensive portfolio of small molecule TGF beta receptor kinase inhibitors. TGF beta can promote tumor growth, broadly suppress the immune system and increase the ability of tumors to spread in the body. The collaboration will focus on developing a new class of therapeutics aimed at increasing the immune system's activity against various cancers either as monotherapy or in combination with immune checkpoint inhibitors, including Bristol-Myers Squibb's Opdivo and Yervoy. Under the terms of the agreement, Bristol-Myers Squibb will obtain exclusive, worldwide rights to develop and commercialize small molecule therapeutics derived from Rigel's TGF beta library, including, but not limited to, those approved to treat cancer. Bristol-Myers Squibb will pay $30M upfront and Rigel will be eligible to receive development and regulatory milestones that could total more than $309M for a successful compound approved in multiple indications. Rigel will also be eligible to receive tiered royalties on the net sales of any products from the collaboration.

07:04 EDTMRKMerck, NGM Biopharmaceuticals announce multi-year collaboration
NGM Biopharmaceuticals and Merck announced they have entered into a multi-year collaboration to research, discover, develop and commercialize novel biologic therapies across a wide range of therapeutic areas. This agreement will become effective upon the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act. The collaboration includes multiple drug candidates currently in preclinical development at NGM, including NP201, which is being evaluated for the treatment of diabetes, obesity and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. NGM will lead the research and development of the existing preclinical candidates and have the autonomy to identify and pursue other discovery stage programs at its discretion. Merck will have the option to license all resulting NGM programs following human proof of concept trials. If Merck exercises this option, Merck will lead global product development and commercialization for the resulting products, if approved. Under the terms of the agreement, Merck will make an upfront payment to NGM of $94M and will purchase a 15 percent equity stake in NGM for $106M at a price per share that represents a 20% premium to NGM’s most recent financing. Merck will commit up to $250M to fund all of NGM’s efforts under the initial five-year term of the collaboration, with the potential for additional funding if certain conditions are met. Prior to Merck initiating a Phase 3 study for a licensed program, NGM may elect to either receive milestone and royalty payments or, in certain cases, to co-fund development and participate in a global cost and revenue share arrangement of up to 50%. The agreement also provides NGM with the option to participate in the co-promotion of any co-funded program in the United States. Merck will have the option to extend the research agreement for two additional two-year terms.
