07:35 EDTBMY, MRK, PRGO, LLYPerrigo potential buyers list could be limited, says Jefferies
After Globes reported that Perrigo retained an investment bank to assist with a potential merger, Jefferies says the list of potential buyers could be limited since the store brand business is fundamentally a high volume, lower margin model. The firm notes U.S. companies that currently do not have large over-the-counter divisions include Bristol-Myers (BMY), Eli Lilly (LLY) and Merck (MRK). Jefferies views the merger speculation surrounding Perrigo as not surprising given the company's strong long-term fundamentals and attractive Irish domicile. It has a Buy rating on the stock with a $160 price target.

07:21 EDTMRKGilead could be hurt by new HCV drugs, says Wells Fargo
Noting that data on a new Merck (MRK) HCV treatment is expected in November, Wells Fargo thinks Merck's HCV drug could be combined with Gilead's (GILD) Sovaldi to shorten the duration of treatment to four weeks. Other companies could take similar actions, and Gilead's per patient revenues would be significantly reduced if this occurs, the firm warned. However, it continues to have an upbeat outlook on Gilead heading into what it sees as a strong quarter and is still upbeat on the company's long-term HCV opportunity. It keeps an Outperform rating on Gilead.

07:05 EDTLLYEli Lilly and Immunocore partner to develop cancel therapies
Eli Lilly and Immunocore today announced they have entered into a co-discovery and co-development collaboration to research and potentially develop novel T cell-based cancer therapies. Immunocore will receive an upfront fee of $15M per program for the discovery of novel ImmTACs against jointly-selected cancer targets in order to generate preclinical candidate packages. If Lilly accepts a preclinical candidate package to develop and potentially commercialize, Immunocore will receive an opt-in fee of $10M and will have an option to continue co-development with Lilly on a cost-sharing and profit-sharing basis. If Immunocore does not exercise its option, it will be entitled to potential future significant milestone and royalty payments.

After building a statistical model of Bristol-Myers' two critical registration trials for Opdivo in lung cancer, Citigroup believes the market is "materially" underestimating both Phase III trials. Citi says potential Opdivo FDA approval in 2015 in lung cancer would give Bristol-Myers an up to two year lead time versus Merck (MRK) and Roche (RHHBY). The firm estimates 2023 Opdivo revenue at $7B and reiterates a Buy rating on Bristol with a $60 price target.

05:47 EDTLLYEli Lilly announces results from five datasets from Alzheimer's disease study
Eli Lilly announced results from an analyses of five datasets evaluating the relationship between cognitive and functional impairment in patients with mild Alzheimer's disease in the natural course of the disease. Analysis findings demonstrate that cognitive deficits predict subsequent functional deficits and suggest that cognitive decline experienced by patients is followed by an observable related decline in function, consistent with previously proposed hypotheses. These data were presented today at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark as part of the featured research session, "Statistics in the Race against Alzheimer's Disease." Hong Liu-Seifert, Ph.D., study research advisor at Eli Lilly stated, "These data support the concept that decline in cognition is later reflected in changes in function. This suggests that with treatments that target the underlying neuropathology of disease, effects on function may take longer to observe in clinical studies. Currently available scales were not developed to assess subtle functional changes or treatment effects on these deficits in patients with early or mild Alzheimer's disease, and there is debate as to how much variability exists in these scales globally. Therefore, we support discussion of alternative ways to demonstrate clinical meaningfulness in early or mild Alzheimer's disease."
