12:51 EDTVRX, ABT, COV, MYL, AGN, MDTKey GOP senator signals readiness for inversion deal, The Hill says
A key Republican Senator, Orrin Hatch, indicated that he was open to a compromise to rein in tax inversion deals, according to The Hill. “There may be steps Congress can take, short of comprehensive tax reform, to address corporate inversions, and related issues,” Hatch, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee wrote in a letter to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, the website stated. Among the deals or possible transactions that involve inversion are Mylan's (MYL) acquisition of Abbott’s (ABT), Medtronic's acquisition of Covidien (COV)and Valeant's (VRX) proposed takeover of Alletgan (AGN). Tax inversions refer to an acquisition of one company, usually officially based in a country in Europe, by a U.S. company, following which the acquiring company becomes domiciled in the same country as the company that it bought. The switch has the potential to significantly lower the acquiring company's tax rate. Reference Link Key

DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners (DVA) and leading provider of kidney care services, announced a collaboration with Medtronic (MDT) to better understand cardiovascular health in end stage renal disease, ESRD patients. The collaboration will focus on developing a pilot program using Medtronic's Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitoring system to identify cardiac arrhythmias in patients receiving dialysis. "Medtronic recently announced data at the American Society of Nephrology meeting that showed a higher incidence of arrhythmias in patients receiving hemodialysis," said Ven Manda, vice president, Renal Care Solutions at Medtronic. "We are pleased to pursue this collaboration with DaVita to monitor more patients and gather additional data that will further our understanding of the relationship between dialysis and cardiac events in ESRD patients."

18:07 EDTCOVCovidien' VenaSeal closure system shows positive results
Covidien announced the six-month results of the VeClose pivotal study of the safety and effectiveness of the VenaSeal closure system in patients with chronic venous insufficiency having symptomatic reflux in the great saphenous vein. The VeClose randomized controlled non-inferiority study compared the safety and effectiveness of the VenaSeal system to that of the ClosureFast endovenous radiofrequency ablation catheter. Covidien's ClosureFast catheter is an endovenous radiofrequency ablation catheter designed to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. The VenaSeal system is not approved and currently limited to investigational use in the U.S. At three months, the complete closure of the great saphenous veins achieved in more than 98.9% of patients treated with the VenaSeal system compared to 95.6% of patients treated with the ClosureFast catheter. The closure rate at six months was 98.9% and 94.3%.
