08:34 EDTPFEPfizer's Bivalent rLP2086 receives FDA Breakthrough Therapy designation
Pfizer announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted Breakthrough Therapy designation to Pfizer’s vaccine candidate, bivalent rLP2086, currently under investigation for the prevention of invasive meningococcal disease due to Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B in persons 10 – 25 years of age. Enacted as part of the 2012 FDA Safety and Innovation Act, Breakthrough Therapy designation is intended to expedite the development and review of potential new medicines for serious and life-threatening diseases. A Breakthrough Therapy designation conveys FDA's existing fast track development program features, as well as more intensive FDA guidance on an efficient drug development program. Pfizer is conducting a global clinical development program for rLP2086, which includes both Phase 2 and Phase 3 trials evaluating more than 20K participants, about 14K of whom will receive the investigational vaccine. Following interactions that the company has had with the FDA, Pfizer intends to submit a Biologics License Application to the FDA for bivalent rLP2086 by mid-2014.

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
