06:02 EDTRHHBY, REGNRegeneron could benefit from bulk Avastin restriction, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank expects Congress to regulate compounding pharmacies more over time, which it feels could pressure demand for Roche's (RHHBY) Avastin since the drug for wet AMD is made in bulk at compounding pharmacies. Deutsche thinks branded wet AMD drug sales like Regeneron's (REGN) ylea could be a key beneficiary. The firm sees potential upside for Regeneron and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $190 price target.

06:18 EDTRHHBYEMA warns that stolen Roche drug found on market
The European Medicines Agency has been informed that vials of the cancer medicine Herceptin, thought to have been stolen in Italy, including from hospitals, have been tampered with and re-introduced under false credentials into the supply chain in some countries. This is currently being investigated by Member State authorities and updates will be provided as more information becomes available. Italian law enforcement authorities are currently investigating the theft and are looking at whether other medicines may also be affected. No affected product has so far been identified at hospital level and there are no reports that any harm has come to patients in relation to the falsified medicine and authorities are working to avoid this. The marketing authorisation holder for Herceptin is Roche.
