08:06 EDTTEVATeva presents new clinical safety data in RRMS patients treated with Laquinimod
Teva (TEVA) and Active Biotech (ACTI) announced new follow-up data evaluating the clinical safety of laquinimod in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, or RRMS, who were treated with laquinimod in Phase II, Phase III and open-label extension studies for two or more years. The pooled safety analysis of the Phase II LAQ/5063 and the Phase III ALLEGRO and BRAVO extension studies supports findings observed in the core studies where currently identified risks were observed within the first months of laquinimod treatment. In the pooled safety analysis, rates of adverse events, or AEs, and serious AEs were lower in the open-label extensions than in the core studies and less than three percent of patients discontinued treatment due to AEs during these extensions. Additionally, shifts to potentially significant laboratory values were considerably lower in patients exposed to at least two years of laquinimod.

05:18 EDTNVSNovartis announces new data confirms high efficacy of Gilenya in achieving NEDA
Novartis announced new analyses presented at the Joint ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Meeting in Boston, USA, which confirmed the high efficacy of Gilenya in achieving 'no evidence of disease activity', or NEDA, in people with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, or RRMS, across four key disease measures - relapses, MRI lesions, brain shrinkage and disability progression. Specifically, patients taking Gilenya had a more than four-times greater likelihood of achieving NEDA across these four key measures. NEDA is currently defined as having no relapses, MRI lesions and disability progression. These new analyses from the phase III FREEDOMS and FREEDOMS II trials reinforce the value of including brain shrinkage to the definition of NEDA. The inclusion of brain shrinkage into the NEDA definition would allow physicians to obtain a more complete assessment of a patient's disease, including the underlying damage in MS.

07:55 EDTNVSOphthotech earlier than expected Novartis payment positive, says Oppenheimer
After Ophthotech (OPHT) received a $50M Phase 3 enrollment payment from Novartis (NVS) earlier than expected, Oppenheimer thinks the payment highlights an underappreciated stock driver for Opthotech, and demonstrates that recent suggestions of Phase 3 enrollment timelines possibly slipping are unwarranted. The firm believes the company is executing well on the Fovista Phase 3 program and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

12:40 EDTTEVAFTC sues AbbVie over blocking of AndroGel generics
The Federal Trade Commission has filed a complaint in federal district court charging several pharmaceutical companies with "illegally blocking American consumers’ access to lower-cost versions of the blockbuster drug AndroGel." The FTC's complaint alleges that AbbVie (ABBV) and its partner Besins Healthcare filed baseless patent infringement lawsuits against potential generic competitors to delay the introduction of lower-priced versions of the testosterone replacement drug AndroGel. While the lawsuits were pending, AbbVie then entered into an anticompetitive pay-for-delay settlement agreement with Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA) to further delay generic drug competition, the FTC claims.
