10:32 EDTPFEPfizer CEO says company still open to inversion deal, FT says
Pfizer (PFE) CEO Ian Read said U.S. rhetoric against tax inversions has been "political theater" ahead of midterm elections and made clear that his company is still open to a potential tax-saving acquisition, according to Financial Times, which added Read's comment about not being “held hostage” over price would likely be read as a signal the company might look elsewhere after being rebuffed by AstraZeneca (AZN). The Fly notes that Bloomberg previously reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that Pfizer is looking at targets other than AstraZeneca, including Actavis (ACT). Shares of Actavis trading in New York are up 2% this morning. Reference Link

08:01 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces Cyramza Phase III cancer trial meets primary endpoint
Eli Lilly announced that the RAISE trial, a Phase III study of ramucirumab in combination with chemotherapy in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, met its primary endpoint of overall survival. The global, randomized, double-blind study compared ramucirumab plus FOLFIRI to placebo plus FOLFIRI as a second-line treatment in patients with mCRC after treatment with bevacizumab, oxaliplatin and a fluoropyrimidine in the first-line setting. RAISE showed a statistically significant improvement in overall survival in patients treated with ramucirumab plus FOLFIRI compared to placebo plus FOLFIRI. The study also showed a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival in the ramucirumab-plus-FOLFIRI arm compared to the placebo-plus-FOLFIRI arm.
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.
