10:54 EDTPFE, TEVA, MYL, WPI, FRXPfizer may obtain compensation from Teva following court verdict
A federal court jury found on Friday that Pfizer's (PFE) patent for a drug known as Protonix is valid. Generic versions of Protonix, which are currently made by Israel's Teva (TEVA), India's Sun Pharma, and a company called Prasco, are used to treat ulcers. Most of the worldwide revenue from the generic version of the drug is currently obtained by Teva. In a note to investors, Cowen analysts predicted that Teva would have to pay compensation of about $400M to Pfizer. Teva was not willfully infringing the patent, since it had received a favorable preliminary injunction on the matter, and consequently would not be liable for triple damages, Cowen contends. The firm recommends that investors buy Teva on weakness today. Meanwhile, Citigroup analysts predict that the court would force Teva to pay about $652M in damages to Pfizer, but the firm predicts that such a verdict would reduce the Israeli company's 2010 profits by only $350M. However, the firm, which reiterates a Buy rating on Teva and a Hold rating on Pfizer, expects the companies to settle the matter out of court. On the other hand, Teva added that the judge could overturn the jury's verdict and invalidate Pfizer's patent. In mid-morning trading, Teva lost 1.10, or 1.78%, to $60.44, while Pfizer inched up 2c to $16.93.

08:01 EDTPFEPfizer announces submission of Palbociclib NDA to FDA
Pfizer announced it has completed the submission of a New Drug Application to the United States Food and Drug Administration for palbociclib. This NDA requests FDA approval of palbociclib, in combination with letrozole, for the treatment of postmenopausal women with estrogen receptor positive, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative advanced breast cancer who have not received previous systemic treatment for their advanced disease. The submission is based on the final results of PALOMA-1, a randomized, Phase 2 trial comparing palbociclib plus letrozole versus letrozole alone in this population of patients. Palbociclib received Breakthrough Therapy designation from the FDA in April 2013, for the first-line systemic treatment of women with advanced or metastatic ER+, HER2- breast cancer. This designation was based on interim data from the PALOMA-1 trial. The FDA has a 60-day filing review period to determine whether the NDA is complete and acceptable for filing. Pfizer will communicate the Agency’s decision.
