Several Supreme Court justices seemed skeptical about the practice of brand name pharmaceutical companies paying generic companies to keep their cheaper drugs off the market for a longer time, according to The New York Times. Some of the justices appeared to be interested in issuing a narrow ruling in the case they are hearing regarding the issue that would not create a precedent, the newspaper added. Reference Link

08:10 EDTBMYBristol-Myers presents results from Phase IIIb AVERT trial at ACR
Bristol-Myers Squibb Company announced results of several new sub-analyses of the Phase IIIb AVERT trial that investigated the use of Orencia plus methotrexate in biologic and MTX-nave citrullinated protein-positive early moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis patients. These data were presented this week at the American College of Rheumatology 2014 annual meeting. Orencia is currently indicated in adults for moderate to severe RA. Orencia should not be administered with tumor necrosis factor antagonists and should not be used with other biologic RA drugs. One of the analyses looked at anti-CCP antibodies, which are a marker of RA and may contribute to disease progression. The analysis assessed the development of anti-CCP antibodies in patients with early rapidly progressing RA by measuring isotypes and the number of epitopes recognized after treatment with Orencia plus MTX, Orencia alone, or MTX alone. Results demonstrated Orencia plus MTX numerically reduced the concentrations of all CCP isotypes and the average number of epitopes recognized over one year of treatment more than Orencia alone or MTX alone. Over 12 months of treatment, 6.7 percent, 12.1 percent, and 7.8 percent of patients on Orencia plus MTX, Orencia alone, and MTX alone, respectively, experienced a serious adverse event and 1.7 percent, 4.3 percent and 2.6 percent led to discontinuation. Serious infections were observed in 0.8 percent of patients in the combination arm and 3.4 percent in the Orencia monotherapy arm. None of the patients in the MTX alone arm experienced a serious infection. Malignancies were reported in 0.8 percent, 1.7 percent, and 0 percent of patients in the Orencia + MTX, Orencia, and MTX arms, respectively. Additionally at ACR, investigators presented 12-month efficacy data from AVERT, including new results assessing the effect of Orencia on more clinically stringent remission criteria than DAS-defined remission, as well as new MRI data. Significantly more patients on Orencia plus MTX achieved the stringent clinical endpoint of Boolean-defined remission at 12 months.

05:32 EDTGSKMedidata announces collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline
Medidata (MDSO) announced the completion of a method development project conducted in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) to evaluate the impact of unifying mobile health, or mHealth, devices with cloud-based technologies in a clinical trial setting. The joint initiative assessed the capabilities of mHealth tools and evaluated how they could be used to enable a new model for clinical trial conduct that aligns site and patient needs with faster study execution and reduced costs. The collaborative project, which took place at GSKs Human Performance Lab, demonstrated that mHealth technologies have the power to comprehensively collect large volumes of objective data that is reliable, secure and analysis-ready, and provides real-time, continuous insight into the well being of patients. All of the data collected was audited and is compliant with FDA regulations. Additionally, the effort indicated that mobile devices can support the long-term goal of lessening the burden on patients participating in studies by streamlining routine procedures, eliminating unnecessary ones and reducing visits to clinical trial sites.
