07:03 EDTAMGNCelgene leaps forward in immuno-oncology with Juno deal, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said that Celgene (CELG) effectively spent $1B to buy into adoptive T cell therapy and own all of Juno Therapeutics' (JUNO) opportunities outside the U.S., leaping the company into a leading position in the immuno-oncology space. Schimmer additionally thinks Celgene's transaction should help boost investor confidence about the utility and value of CAR and TCR therapies, noting that he sees Bellicum Pharmaceuticals (BLCM), Cellectis (CLLS), Lion Biotechnologies (LBIO), bluebird bio (BLUE) and the Amgen (AMGN)-Kite Pharma (KITE) partnership as best positioned to compete in this rapidly advancing field. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating and $144 price target on Celgene.

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.

New Allergan CEO Brent Saunders said that the company’s Irvine, California campus is “crucial” to the recently purchased organization, the L.A.

13:23 EDTPFEPfizer says CDC committee votes to recommend MenB vaccine
Pfizer announced that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices voted to recommend that decisions to vaccinate adolescents and young adults 16 through 23 years of age against serogroup B meningococcal disease should be made at the individual level with healthcare providers. It added, "Specifically, the ACIP voted that a serogroup B meningococcal vaccine series may be administered to adolescents and young adults 16 through 23 years of age to provide short term protection against most strains of serogroup B meningococcal disease. The preferred age for MenB vaccination is 16 through 18 years of age." Pfizer's Trumenba is FDA-approved for active immunization to prevent invasive disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B in individuals 10 through 25 years of age. The ACIP recommendation will be forwarded to the director of the CDC and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for review and approval, Pfizer said.

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

07:01 EDTPFEPfizer to acquire Nimenrix, Mencevax from GlaxoSmithKline for $130M
Pfizer (PFE) announced that it has entered into an agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to acquire its quadrivalent meningitis ACWY vaccines, Nimenrix and Mencevax, for a total consideration of approximately $130M. This transaction will add two high-quality and complementary vaccines to Pfizer’s portfolio, allowing the company to reach a broader global population. Nimenrix is a single dose meningococcal ACWY-TT conjugated vaccine designed to protect against Neisseria meningitidis, an uncommon but highly contagious disease that can lead to disability and death. Mencevax is a single-dose meningococcal ACWY unconjugated polysaccharide vaccine used to control outbreaks of meningococcal infection and for travelers to countries where the disease is endemic or highly epidemic. Pfizer does not expect this transaction to have any significant impact on its 2015 financial performance. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions as well as regulatory approvals in several markets, and is expected to occur in the second half of 2015. Pfizer’s legal advisors for the transaction were Ropes & Gray and Clifford Chance.
