07:40 EDTMRKMerck suspends availability of Trepadtive
Merck announced the company is taking steps to suspend the availability of Trepadtive tablets worldwide. Trepadtive is not approved for use in the United States. Merck is taking these steps based on the current understanding of the preliminary data from the HPS2-THRIVE study, and in consultation with regulatory authorities. As previously reported by Merck, HPS2-THRIVE did not achieve its primary endpoint of reduction of major vascular events, and there was a statistically significant increase in the incidence of some types of non-fatal serious adverse events in the group that received Trepadtive compared to statin therapy. The decision to suspend availability of the medicine is aligned with the recommendation of the European Medicine Agency's Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee based on the trial's results.

08:30 EDTMRKMerck reaffirms commitment to developing medicines for infectious diseases
Merck reaffirmed its longstanding commitment to discovering and developing novel medicines in the global fight against infectious diseases, including infections caused by resistant bacteria and other pathogens. At this year’s 25th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, April 25-28 in Copenhagen, Denmark, researchers are scheduled to present more than 30 scientific data presentations on the company’s broad portfolio of marketed and investigational anti-infective medicines. Merck completed its acquisition of Cubist Pharmaceuticals, Inc. on Jan. 21, 2015, and continues to build on both companies’ work in infectious disease. Antimicrobial research remains an important area of focus. In addition to a combined portfolio of antibiotic and antifungal medicines, vaccines, and medicines for HIV and HCV, Merck has multiple programs that span discovery through late-stage development. In total, Merck currently has more than 15 ongoing clinical trials evaluating antibiotic, antifungal and antiviral agents for the prevention and treatment of infectious disease. These trials are projected to enroll approximately 8,000 patients.
