07:03 EDTNVSAnacor, Sandoz enter into agreement for commercialization of Kerydin in the U.S.
Anacor Pharmaceuticals (ANAC) announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Sandoz, a Novartis (NVS) company, pursuant to which Sandoz will distribute and commercialize Anacor’s drug KERYDIN topical solution, 5% in the United States. PharmaDerm, the branded dermatology business of Sandoz, will be responsible for the sales and marketing of KERYDIN. On July 8, Anacor announced that the U.S. FDA approved the New Drug Application for KERYDIN, the first oxaborole antifungal approved for the topical treatment of onychomycosis of the toenails, a fungal infection of the nail and nail bed that affects approximately 35 million people in the United States, according to Podiatry Today. The agreement with Sandoz entitles Anacor to upfront payments totaling $40M and an additional milestone payment of $25M expected to be paid in January 2015. Under the agreement, Sandoz and Anacor will share equally, under a long-term profit-sharing arrangement, the gross profits accrued by Sandoz on sales of KERYDIN, except that in 2015 Anacor will start receiving profit-sharing payments after the first $50M of gross profits have been accrued by Sandoz. The long-term profit-sharing arrangement includes cumulative minimum profit-sharing payments to Anacor in 2016 totaling $45M. Anacor will also have the option to repurchase all rights in KERYDIN from Sandoz on the later of three years from launch or December 31, 2017, at a price to be determined pursuant to the agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Anacor will supply product to Sandoz at cost through Anacor’s contract manufacturers, and Sandoz will be responsible for all of its selling, marketing, distribution, general and administrative costs related to the commercialization of KERYDIN. Anacor will hold the NDA and will be responsible for any further development of KERYDIN.

ISIS-TTRRx is an antisense drug in development with GSK for the treatment of transthyretin amyloidosis, a severe and rare genetic disease characterized by progressive dysfunction of peripheral nerve and/or heart tissues. Including this milestone payment, Isis has generated $27M in upfront and milestone payments for advancing ISIS-TTRRx.

07:04 EDTPFEPfizer says primary endpoint met in Phase 3 study of BeneFIX
Pfizer announced the positive results of a Phase 3 study comparing a prophylaxis regimen of BeneFIX Coagulation Factor IX 100 IU/kg once-weekly to on-demand treatment in people with moderately severe to severe hemophilia B. The top-line results of the study showed that the primary study endpoint was met and hemophilia B patients taking once-weekly BeneFIX showed a statistically significant reduction in the annualized bleeding rate relative to on-demand treatment with BeneFIX. In the study, the median ABR value, a commonly used measure of efficacy for prophylaxis regimens in hemophilia, was 2.0 for the prophylaxis regimen, compared to 33.6 for the on-demand regimen, representing a 94% decrease in bleeding rates. The mean ABR value was 3.6 for the prophylaxis period, compared to 32.9 for the on-demand treatment, which represents a reduction of 89%. Study results also showed that prophylaxis treatment significantly reduced both spontaneous and traumatic ABR compared to on-demand treatment with BeneFIX. In addition to meeting the primary endpoint, the secondary study endpoints showed that none of the 1,254 prophylaxis infusions administered during the study were associated with a less than expected therapeutic effect occurrence, which was defined as a spontaneous bleed occurring within 48 hours of a prophylaxis infusion. These results are preliminary, top-line data and are subject to additional analyses. Complete results from this study will be submitted for presentation at upcoming medical congresses and submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
06:26 EDTBMYBristol-Myers lung cancer trials being underestimated, says Citigroup
After building a statistical model of Bristol-Myers' two critical registration trials for Opdivo in lung cancer, Citigroup believes the market is "materially" underestimating both Phase III trials. Citi says potential Opdivo FDA approval in 2015 in lung cancer would give Bristol-Myers an up to two year lead time versus Merck (MRK) and Roche (RHHBY). The firm estimates 2023 Opdivo revenue at $7B and reiterates a Buy rating on Bristol with a $60 price target.
05:38 EDTGSKGSK, Theravance initiate Phase III IMPACT study
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Theravance (THRX) announced the start of a global phase III study, known as IMPACT, to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the 'closed' triple combination of FF/UMEC/VI in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. IMPACT is the first pivotal phase III study in a programme to evaluate a once-daily closed triple combination treatment of an inhaled corticosteroid, or ICS; a long-acting muscarinic antagonist, or LAMA; and a long-acting beta2-adrenergic agonist, or LABA, in patients with COPD. The IMPACT study will enrol approximately 10,000 patients and assess whether the combination of FF, or fluticasone furoate, an ICS, UMEC, or umeclidinium, a LAMA, and VI, or vilanterol, a LABA, all delivered in GSK's Ellipta inhaler, can reduce the annual rate of moderate and severe exacerbations compared with two approved once daily COPD treatments, Relvar/Breo Ellipta, FF/VI, which is an ICS/LABA combination, and Anoro Ellipta, UMEC/VI, which is a LAMA/LABA combination.

12:21 EDTGSK, JNJOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite better than expected quarterly reports from two of the nation's largest financial institutions. Stock futures improved during the pre-market trading session, leading to a higher open for the broader market, following better than expected earnings reports from JP Morgan (JPM) and Goldman Sachs (GS). The earnings news also came alongside another huge M&A deal, as tobacco giants Reynolds American (RAI) and Lorillard (LO) confirmed plans to merge. However, the major averages weakened throughout the morning and fell into negative ground against the backdrop of Fed Chair Janet Yellen giving testimony on Capital Hill. In the Board of Governors' Monetary Policy Report, the central bank said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries." ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales increased 0.2% in June compared to the month prior, making for the weakest reading since January and missing the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.6%. The Empire State manufacturing index climbed to a four-year high of 25.6 in July, beating expectations for a reading of 16.5. Import prices rose 0.1% in June, with export prices slipping 0.4%. Business inventories grew 0.5% in May, which was just below the 0.6% consensus growth expectation. In Europe, Germany's ZEW survey missed expectations, as both its Current Situation and Expectations reading were lower than forecast. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan advanced nearly 4% after the bank reported a profit of $1.46 a share, which included a legal expense of 13c a share, beating analysts' consensus forecast of $1.29. The earnings report comes after CEO Jamie Dimon recently disclosed that he has throat cancer. During the company's conference call, Dimon said he was "feeling great," that doctors had found no evidence of cancer anywhere except in the location where it had originally been detected, and that his prognosis for recovery is "excellent"... Also in the large-cap bank sector, Goldman Sachs' headline earnings and revenue similarly beat expectations. The firm, which said it ranks first in worldwide announced and completed mergers and acquisitions for the year-to-date, advanced about 1% following its report... Along with JPMorgan in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) reported quarterly sales and profits that beat expectations and the healthcare conglomerate raised its fiscal year EPS view to $5.85-$5.92 from $5.75-$5.85. However, its increased outlook range still fell short of the $5.90 per share consensus forecast that analysts had prior to its report... Reynolds American confirmed news that has been speculated for many weeks, announcing that it will acquire peer Lorillard in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at $68.88 per Lorillard share, or a total of $27.4B, including the assumption of net debt. Shares of both fell afterward, with Lorillard down 8% to trade near $61.75 at midday and Reynolds slipping 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was small-cap pharma biotechnology research company Codexis (CDXS), which surged nearly 50% after announcing a collaboration and license agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Among the noteworthy losers was Aaron's (AAN), which is engaged in the lease ownership and retail sale of a variety of consumer products. Its stock fell over 6% after the company lowered its second quarter outlook, citing lower than expected performance of its core business as the reason for the revision. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 33.45, or 0.2%, to 17,021.97, the Nasdaq was down 40.48, or 0.91%, to 4,399.94, and the S&P 500 was down 9.24, or 0.47%, to 1,967.86.

The agreement with Google[x], a team within Google that is devoted to finding new solutions to big global problems, provides Alcon with the opportunity to develop and commercialize Google's "smart lens" technology with the potential to transform eye care and further enhance Alcon's pipeline and global leadership in contact lenses and intraocular lenses. The transaction remains subject to anti-trust approvals. The agreement between Google and Alcon represents an important step for Novartis, across all of its divisions, to leverage technology to manage human diseases and conditions. Google's key advances in the miniaturization of electronics complement Novartis's deep pharmaceuticals and medical device expertise. Novartis aims to enhance the ways in which diseases are mapped within the body and ultimately prevented.
05:35 EDTNVSNovartis collaborates with Banner Alzheimer's Institute on study
Novartis announced a collaboration with Banner Alzheimer's Institute, or BAI, on a pioneering clinical study in Alzheimer's disease, or AD, prevention. The study will determine whether two Novartis investigational anti-amyloid treatments can prevent or delay the emergence of symptoms of AD in people identified as being at genetic risk for developing the late-onset form of the disease. Using an innovative trial design, the two treatments will be given in cognitively healthy people at genetic risk of developing the build-up of amyloid protein in the brain that may eventually lead to AD. One treatment is an active immunotherapy, a treatment that stimulates an immune response, and triggers the production of natural antibodies against amyloid. This investigational treatment, given via an injection, is in phase II clinical development. The second treatment, a BACE inhibitor, is an oral medication about to enter phase I trials and is designed to prevent the production of different forms of amyloid.

The drug maker raised its fiscal year EPS view to $5.80-$5.90 against a consensus estimate of $5.83. J&J noted a 3.2% decrease in worldwide consumer sales in Q1 but saw a 10.8% increase in worldwide pharmaceutical sales. Primary contributors to operational sales growth in Q1 pharmaceutical sales were Stelara, Invega, Sustenna/Xeplion, Prezista, Velcade and sales of new products. Pharmaceutical sales results were negatively impacted by loss of exclusivity for Aciphex, a proton pump inhibitor for gastrointestinal disorders and Concerta for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. STREET RESEARCH: On July 14, RBC Capital raised its Q2 estimates for Johnson & Johnson to reflect the firm's outlook for higher pharmaceutical sales by the company. The firm raised its price target on the shares to $110 from $106 and kept an Outperform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Johnson & Johnson are up approximately 8.5% since its last earnings report, and are trading near flat in afternoon trading.
12:24 EDTJNJJohnson & Johnson technical notes before earnings
The company is scheduled to report before market open on July 15th. The shares in the prior three months have risen by more than 8%, anticipating positive news for the current and forthcoming quarters. At the current price of $105.39, the only remaining established resistance on the daily chart is at the life high of $106.74. If the news and guidance is better than expected, a run to $110, or $115 at an extreme, would be possible. If the news fails to meet expectations or guidance is weak, support would be at $102.70, the 50-day moving average. A break below this uptrend support proxy would be a sell signal in many technical trading systems and would break an uptrend in place since early March of this year. On a sliding scale of increasingly weaker news, supports would next be at $99.96, and then at $96.87.
