10:32 EDTMRK, PFEPfizer results may indicate weakness for Merck, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo notes that Pfizer's (PFE) Q1 revenue and earnings were impacted by weakness in the Japanese Yen. The firm says Merck (MRK) has growing exposure to the Japanese Yen, especially for the Januvia franchise. Japan represented 10.8% of Merck's 2012 revenue, but the company should be helped by its hedges, Wells added. The firm has an Outperform rating on shares of Merck.

08:07 EDTMRKMerck, Ferring announce collaboration with WHO
Merck and Ferring Pharmaceuticals announced their collaboration with the World Health Organization to advance a new, proprietary formulation of carbetocin, used to prevent excessive bleeding in women after childbirth, that is designed to be stable at room temperature, even in hot and tropical climates. Currently, oxytocin, the standard medicine administered for the prevention of excessive bleeding, is temperature-sensitive and requires sustained cold distribution and storage in hot climates. The WHO will conduct a multi-country clinical study to evaluate the effectiveness of room-temperature-stable carbetocin, as compared to oxytocin. The development of a medicine that can be stored at room temperature has the potential to significantly improve management of bleeding following childbirth in the many areas of the world where cold storage is difficult to achieve and maintain, and thereby help reduce maternal deaths in those areas. Starting this year, the study will take place in 12 countries around the world and enroll approximately 29,000 women. If the results of the study are positive, the organizations will work together with the aim of making the medicine available in developing countries that have a high burden of maternal mortality at an affordable and sustainable public-sector price.
