13:23 EDTRHHBYFDA expands Tamiflu’s use to treat children younger than 1 year
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the approved use of Tamiflu to treat children as young as 2 weeks old who have shown symptoms of flu for no longer than two days. The drug is not approved to prevent flu infection in this population. In addition, the safety and efficacy of Tamiflu to treat flu infection has not been established in children younger than 2 weeks old. Although there is a fixed dosing regimen for patients 1 year and older according to weight categories, the dosing for children younger than 1 year must be calculated for each patient based on their exact weight. These children should receive 3 milligrams per kilogram twice daily for five days. These smaller doses will require a different dispenser than what is currently co-packaged with Tamiflu. Tamiflu is distributed in the United States by Genentech, a member of the Roche Group.

06:21 EDTRHHBYRoche acquires Trophos for EUR120M plus contingent payments
Roche has agreed to acquire Trophos, a privately held biotechnology company based in Marseille, France. Trophos’s proprietary screening platform generated olesoxime, TRO19622, which is being developed for SMA – a rare and debilitating genetic neuromuscular disease that is most commonly diagnosed in children. Results from a pivotal phase II clinical trial with olesoxime in SMA showed a beneficial effect on the maintenance of neuromuscular function in individuals with Type II and non-ambulatory Type III SMA, as well as a reduction in medical complications associated with the disease. These data were first presented in April 2014 at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology. Under the terms of the agreement, Trophos’s shareholders will receive an upfront cash payment of EUR 120M, plus additional contingent payments of up to EUR 350M based on achievement of certain predetermined milestones.
