08:04 EDTPOZN, GSK, PTXPOZEN 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.

11:17 EDTGSKFTC puts conditions on Novartis's proposed acquisition of GSK oncology drugs
According to the FTC, Global pharmaceutical company Novartis (NVS) has agreed to divest all assets related to its BRAF and MEK inhibitor drugs, currently in development, to Boulder, Colorado-based Array BioPharma (ARRY) to settle charges that Novartis’s $16B acquisition of GlaxoSmithKline’s (GSK) portfolio of cancer-treatment drugs would likely be anticompetitive...If the acquisition goes forward as proposed, Novartis would likely delay or terminate development of both its BRAF and MEK inhibitors, as well as the combination product. For that reason, Novartis’s acquisition of GSK’s portfolio of cancer-treatment drugs would likely cause significant competitive harm in the U.S. markets for both the BRAF and MEK inhibitors, ultimately raising prices for consumers and depriving them of potentially superior products. Under the terms of the proposed consent agreement, Novartis is required to provide transitional services to Array BioPharma to ensure that development of the BRAF and MEK inhibitors continues uninterrupted and that competition in BRAF and MEK inhibitor markets is not reduced.
