06:12 EDTRHHBYGilead announced favorable ruling in arbitration against Roche
Gilead (GILD) announced that an arbitration panel determined that Roche (RHHBY) failed to establish any of their claims and ruled in favor of Gilead. As a result, Roche is not entitled to any damages or other relief. In March 2013, Roche initiated an arbitration against Gilead and Pharmasset, predecessor to Gilead Pharmasset, regarding a 2004 collaboration agreement between Roche and Pharmasset. In the arbitration demand, Roche asserted that it had an exclusive license to sofosbuvir pursuant to the collaboration agreement because sofosbuvir, a prodrug of a uridine monophosphate analog, is allegedly a prodrug of PSI-6130, a cytidine analog. Roche further claimed that, because it had exclusive rights to sofosbuvir, it also had an exclusive license to a patent covering sofosbuvir, and that we infringed that patent by selling and offering for sale products containing sofosbuvir.

08:31 EDTAZNAstraZeneca says Phase 3 trials of lesinurad for gout met primary endpoints
AstraZeneca announced top-line results from CLEAR1, CLEAR2 and CRYSTAL, the pivotal Phase III clinical trials investigating the potential of lesinurad, a selective uric acid re-absorption inhibitor, as a combination therapy for the treatment of patients with symptomatic gout. Lesinurad is an investigational agent that inhibits the URAT1 transporter, increasing uric acid excretion and thereby lowering serum uric acid. In the CLEAR1 and CLEAR2 trials, both lesinurad 200mg and 400mg in combination with allopurinol met the primary endpoint, with a statistically significant higher proportion of patients reaching the target sUA goal of <6.0mg/dL at month 6 compared to allopurinol alone. In the CRYSTAL trial, lesinurad 400mg in combination with febuxostat met the primary endpoint, with a statistically significant higher proportion of patients reaching the target sUA goal of <5.0mg/dL at month 6 compared to febuxostat alone. Although lesinurad 200mg did not achieve statistical significance at month 6, this dose in combination with febuxostat, was superior to placebo plus febuxostat at all other time points. Results from these Phase III clinical trials will be submitted to a scientific meeting later in 2014. The company is proceeding with preparation of regulatory submissions for lesinurad 200mg combination therapy.

05:18 EDTNVSNovartis reports LCZ696 significantly reduced cardiovascular deaths
New data revealing the reduction in cardiovascular, or CV, deaths with Novartis' LCZ696 in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, or HF-REF, will be presented at the European Society of Cardiology, or ESC, Congress 2014. The 8,442 patient study, PARADIGM-HF, was specifically designed to see if LCZ696 could increase survival over and above what can be achieved with ACE-inhibitor enalapril in addition to current best treatment in HF-REF patients. In March the Data Monitoring Committee overseeing the study confirmed those given LCZ696 were significantly less likely to die from CV causes, leading to the trial being closed early. LCZ696 significantly reduced cardiovascular deaths in head to head study against enalapril, in addition to current best treatment, in patients with HF-REF. PARADIGM-HF is the largest heart failure study ever conducted and was stopped early in March due to compelling efficacy. LCZ696 was recently granted FDA Fast Track status and rolling submission expected to be complete by end of year.

14:05 EDTRHHBYPTC Therapeutics reports publication of preclinical study results in SMA models
PTC Therapeutics (PTCT) announced that he journal Science published results of a preclinical study demonstrating that treatment with orally available RNA splicing modifiers of the SMN2 gene starting early after birth is preventing deficits in mouse models of Spinal Muscular Atrophy or SMA. Stuart Peltz, CEO of PTC Therapeutics, said, "Using the experience and expertise in RNA biology we have gained at PTC over the last 16 years, we used our alternative splicing technology to identify and subsequently optimize investigational compounds that target the SMN2 splicing to produce the SMN protein. Our unique partnership with Roche and the SMA Foundation has allowed this project to rapidly move into clinical development." Luca Santarelli, Head of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology and Rare Diseases at Roche (RHHBY), said, "Although still preclinical, these results demonstrate how SMN2 splicing modifiers could correct the molecular deficit that causes SMA. This study represents an important step towards developing a potential therapeutic option for this devastating and currently untreatable condition. Early clinical trials are currently underway to determine the safety and tolerability of this approach."
