08:04 EDTPTX, POZN, GSKPOZEN announces U.S. rights for Treximet acquired by Pernix Therapeutics
POZEN (POZN) announced that the acquisition of all of GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) rights to Treximet have been acquired by Pernix Therapeutics Holdings (PTX). The previously announced transaction was contingent upon Pernix securing financing, which is now complete. As part of the divestiture, GSK has assigned the Product Development and Commercialization Agreement between POZEN and GSK to Pernix, and POZEN and Pernix have amended the agreement to address rights of the parties and future development. Under the amended agreement, Pernix will continue certain of GSK’s ongoing development activities and undertake certain new activities, for which POZEN will provide reasonable assistance. In addition, any restrictions on POZEN’s right to develop and commercialize additional certain dosage forms of sumatriptan / naproxen combinations outside of the United States have been eliminated, and POZEN may seek approval for these combinations on the basis of the approved U.S. New Drug Application. Pernix had also granted POZEN a warrant to purchase 500,000 shares of Pernix common stock at an exercise price equal to the closing market price on May 13, 2014. The common stock underlying the warrant will be registered by Pernix with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The warrant will be exercisable from August 20, 2014, the closing date of the divestiture, until February 28, 2018.

06:55 EDTGSKGenocea could be takeover target after data, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff expects Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) will report positive Phase II GEN-003 post-immunization results late in Q2. GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target. Shares of the clinical-stage vaccine developer with a $227M market capitalization closed yesterday up 83c to $10.22.
