08:11 EDTBAYRY, PTLAPortola Pharmaceuticals enters into clinical collaboration agreement with Bayer
Portola Pharmaceuticals (PTLA) announced that it has entered into a second clinical collaboration agreement with Bayer HealthCare (BAYRY) and Janssen Pharmaceuticals to evaluate its investigational Factor Xa inhibitor reversal agent, andexanet alfa, in Phase 3 registration studies with the FDA-approved oral Factor Xa inhibitor XARELTO. Portola's original collaboration agreement with Bayer and Janssen, announced in February 2013, covered the conduct of a Phase 2 proof-of-concept study. Interim results of that study were presented in December 2013 at the 55th American Society of Hematology Annual Meeting and demonstrated that andexanet alfa can produce an immediate and dose-dependent reversal of the anticoagulation activity of XARELTO. The new clinical collaboration agreement will be in effect through completion of Phase 3 studies with XARELTO and any potential U.S. and EU regulatory approval of andexanet alfa. The Phase 3 studies are expected to start in the first half of 2014. Under this non-exclusive collaboration agreement, Portola will receive an upfront payment and is eligible to receive additional development and regulatory milestone payments. Portola retains full, worldwide commercial rights to andexanet alfa, which was designated as a breakthrough therapy by the FDA in November 2013 and for which Portola is pursuing an Accelerated Approval pathway.

Seed companies like Syngenta (SYT), Dow AgroSciences (DOW) and Bayer (BAYRY) are altering their plans for new product launches as China has taken longer than usual to approve new GMO crops, says Reuters.

Monsanto (MON) is another company in the seed business. Reference Link
