Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) announced the submission of a new drug application, or NDA, on April 4 to the FDA for a fixed-dose combination of atazanavir sulfate, a protease inhibitor marketed as Reyataz, and cobicistat, an investigational pharmacokinetic enhancer, or boosting agent, that can increase the level of certain HIV-1 medicines in the blood and make them more effective. Bristol-Myers Squibb is seeking approval of the fixed-dose combination tablet for use in combination with other antiretroviral agents for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. If approved, atazanavir sulfate and cobicistat could offer patients living with HIV-1 a single tablet that eliminates the need to take a boosting agent in a separate tablet. Cobicistat is being developed by Gilead Sciences (GILD). Under the terms of a previously announced agreement, Bristol-Myers Squibb and its affiliates are responsible for the formulation, manufacturing, registration, distribution and commercialization of the atazanavir sulfate and cobicistat fixed-dose combination product worldwide. Gilead retains sole rights for the manufacture, development and commercialization of cobicistat as a stand-alone product and for use in combination with other agents.

Novartis announced that Bexsero, Meningococcal Group B Vaccine, has received a Breakthrough Therapy designation from the FDA. Bexsero is already approved in Europe, Canada and Australia to help protect against invasive meningococcal disease caused by serogroup B.

10:45 EDTMYL, TEVAMylan rises despite Meda rejecting takeover offer
Mylan (MYL) shares are higher this morning following a Financial Times report of its desire to buy Swedish rival Meda. Subsequent to the story being published, Meda confirmed it had been in talks with Mylan but rejected the company's takeover offer. WHAT'S NEW: The Financial Times reported that Mylan was considering buying Meda, a Swedish drugmaker, in a deal that would create a $23B+ pharmaceuticals business. Mylan reportedly hired advisers to put a deal together for Meda, and though the value of a deal was not noted, sources said Mylan was likely to pay a "significant" premium to Meda's market value, which was $4.5B at the end of trading on Thursday. Mylan's market value currently stands at $18.5B. A combination of the drugmakers would create a company with annual revenues of around $9B, the FT said, noting that would be half the size of generic drug rival Teva (TEVA). WHAT'S NOTABLE: Meda's board of directors confirmed that it was contacted by Mylan regarding a proposal to merge the companies, but the board decided to reject the proposal. Meda said all discussions between the company and Mylan have been terminated "without further actions." ANALYST REACTION: Citigroup upgraded Mylan to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target on the stock to $61 from $52 this morning. The firm cited potential operational and tax benefits from an acquisition of Meda, stating that in addition to expanding Mylan's geographic presence, the deal would increase its presence in specialty, OTC and branded generics. OTHER NEWS: Mylan sued Celgene (CELG) to block that company's efforts to keep generic versions of Revlimid and Thalomid off the market, Reuters reported. PRICE ACTION: Mylan shares are up $2.98, or 5.98%, to $52.84 in mid-morning trading.

The support agreement provides, subject to its terms and conditions, among other things, that the supporting creditors agree to timely vote to accept the proposed plan of reorganization contemplated by the agreement, support approval of the disclosure statement in respect of the plan and the cash collateral order contemplated, neither join in nor support any objection to the disclosure, the cash collateral order, the solicitation procedures, or the plan, or otherwise commence any proceeding to oppose or alter any of the terms of the plan or any other document filed by Genco in connection with its confirmation, and use commercially reasonable efforts to support, consent, and take other actions in connection with the company’s restructuring and the Chapter 11 case. The plan would entail, among other things, a $100.0M rights offering for 8.7% of the pro forma equity in reorganized Genco, subject to dilution by the New Genco Warrants and the MIP Warrants. Eligible 2007 Facility lenders will have the right to participate in up to 80% of the rights offering, which portion will be backstopped by supporting 2007 Facility lenders, and eligible holders of Convertible Notes will have the right to participate in up to 20% of the rights offering, which portion will be backstopped by the supporting noteholders.

06:11 EDTGSKGlaxoSmithKline confirms plans to stop MAGRIT Phase III trial
GlaxoSmithKline announced its decision to stop the MAGRITi trial, a Phase III trial of its MAGE-A3ii cancer immunotherapeuticiii in non-small cell lung cancer patients, after establishing that it will not be possible to identify a sub-population of gene-signature positive NSCLC patients that may benefit from the treatment. Data from the trial announced on 20 March 2014 showed that it did not meet its first or second co-primary endpoints as it did not significantly extend disease-free survival when compared to placebo in either the overall MAGE-A3 positive population or in those MAGE-A3-positive patients who did not receive chemotherapy. The trial will be stopped and GSK will now gain access to the un-blinded data, in order to conduct a full assessment of the findings and understand learnings for other aspects of immunotherapy development within GSK. The Independent Data Monitoring Committee indicated that its review of the current safety information revealed no specific safety concern and the data is in line with the known safety information for the MAGE-A3 cancer immunotherapeutic.
