11:55 EDTQURE, BAX, PFE, SGMO, BMRN, NVO, BIIBUniqure rises after Baxter acquires Chatham Therapeutics
U.S.-listed shares of Netherlands-based pharmaceutical company Uniqure (QURE) are rising after Baxter International (BAX) acquired Chatham Therapeutics, which is developing gene therapy treatments intended for patients with hemophilia. WHAT'S NEW: Baxter agreed to acquire all of Chathamís outstanding membership interests and as a result will acquire Chathamís developmental gene therapy programs directed toward the development and commercialization of treatments for hemophilia. Under the terms of the agreement, Baxter will make an initial payment of $70M to acquire all of the outstanding membership interests of Chatham and may make additional payments in the future. Baxter will continue the ongoing Phase I/II open-label clinical trial to assess the safety and optimal dosing schedule of hemophilia treatment BAX 335. ANALYST REACTION: Research firm Piper Jaffray said the Baxter acquisition has a positive read-through for Uniqure. The deal validates other hemophilia gene therapy programs in development, most notably Uniqure's, according to the firm. Analyst Joshua Schimmer wrote that there are other gene therapy programs for hemophilia in development beside Uniqure's and Baxter's, but he believes Uniqure has an advantage since it will be important to be among the first to market. The analyst also said that the market is large enough to accommodate more than one gene therapy option. Piper reiterated its Overweight rating and $35 price target on Uniqure. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies noted by Piper as currently offering hemophilia treatments or working on hemophilia therapies include Pfizer (PFE), Novo Nordisk (NVO), Biogen (BIIB), Sangamo (SGMO) and BioMarin (BMRN). PRICE ACTION: During late morning trading, shares of Uniqure rose 77c or 4.92% to $16.43, while Baxter slid 33c, or 0.45%, to $73.34.

08:09 EDTPFEPfizer presents LP2086 Phase 2 study data
Pfizer announced it will present the results of a Phase 2, randomized study to evaluate co-administration of the companyís investigational meningococcal group B vaccine, bivalent recombinant LP2086, or rLP2086, with a licensed quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine at IDWeek 2014. Data demonstrated immune responses to both vaccines were generated after concomitant administration of bivalent rLP2086 and HPV4. Prespecified noninferiority criteria were met for the bivalent rLP2086 antigens studied and three of the four antigens for HPV4. Primary immunogenicity endpoints, measured after the third dose, included geometric mean titers against HPV antigens in Groups 1 and 3 and human complement serum bactericidal assay GMTs against meningococcal group B disease test strains in Groups 1 and 2. Secondary immunogenicity endpoints included the rate of seroconversion to HPV antigens. Safety of bivalent rLP2086 was assessed after concomitant administration with HPV4 or saline. The prespecified noninferiority criteria were met for three of four HPV antigens and both meningococcal group B disease test strains. Seroconversion for all four HPV antigens was achieved by 99% or more of the subjects for the groups that received HPV4 concomitantly with bivalent rLP2086 or with saline. More local reactions occurred following administration of bivalent rLP2086 compared with saline but the incidence of these reactions did not increase with subsequent vaccine administration. The rates of local and systemic reactions were comparable when bivalent rLP2086 was given with HPV4 to bivalent rLP2086 given alone.
