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.

12:49 EDTSNYSanofi reports Dengue vaccine candidate achieves its phase 3 primary endpoint
Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of Sanofi, announced that the final landmark phase 3 efficacy study of its dengue vaccine candidate in Latin America successfully achieved its primary clinical endpoint. Results showed an overall significant reduction of 60.8% of dengue disease cases in children and adolescents 9-16 years old after a three-dose vaccination schedule. Importantly, efficacy was observed against each of the four dengue serotypes. Additional observations of the results showed a clinically important reduction by 80.3% in the risk of hospitalization due to dengue during the study. The results also showed in the study population an efficacy against dengue haemorrhagic fever, the severe form of dengue, which is consistent with the results released from Sanofiís phase 3 dengue study in Asia. Lastly, the results suggest better protection in case of prior exposure to dengue.

05:43 EDTNVSNovartis Gilenya data redefining MS treatment goals
Novartis announced that new analyses to be presented at the Joint ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Meeting in Boston, MA from September 10-13, will add to the growing evidence confirming the importance of redefining treatment goals in multiple sclerosis, or MS. The goal of MS treatment is to have 'no evidence of disease activity' or 'NEDA', which is currently defined as no evidence of relapses, MRI lesions and disability progression. New data to be presented will reinforce the clinical relevance of brain shrinkage and highlight the benefit of including it as a fourth key measure of MS in the definition of NEDA. In addition, other analyses will show that patients treated with Gilenya were more likely to achieve NEDA based on assessment of these four key measures, including MS-related brain shrinkage, than those on placebo. New Gilenya analyses will show how brain shrinkage is associated with future long-term disability progression in patients with MS and that patients with relapsing MS treated with Gilenya had lower rates of brain shrinkage that importantly were sustained over time. The findings will also provide further evidence of the high efficacy of Gilenya on MS disease activity across four key measures.
