05:32 EDTMYL, ACT, NVS, SHPGShire says New Jersey court found Vyvanse patents infringed
Shire announces that Judge Stanley Chesler of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey granted Shire's summary judgment motion in a patent infringement lawsuit, holding that certain claims of the patents protecting Vyvanse were both infringed and valid. The ruling prevents the five pharmaceutical manufacturers who have filed Abbreviated New Drug Applications from launching generic versions of Vyvanse until the earlier of either a successful appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, or the expiration of these patents in 2023. To appeal successfully, the ANDA Defendants must overturn the court's rulings for each of the 18 patent claims, Shire said. The court's summary judgment ruling concerning Shire's motion included 18 patent claims from four of the FDA Orange Book-listed patents for Vyvanse, which cover Vyvanse's active ingredient, the lisdexamfetamine dimesylate compound, and a method of using lisdexamfetamine dimesylate for the treatment of ADHD. Shire's lawsuit is against the five ANDA defendants that filed ANDAs with the FDA seeking to market generic versions of Vyvanse. The defendants are Actavis (ACT), Amneal Pharmaceuticals, Mylan (MYL), Roxane Laboratories and Novartis' (NVS) Sandoz.

06:55 EDTNVSGenocea could be takeover target after data, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff expects Genocea Biosciences (GNCA) will report positive Phase II GEN-003 post-immunization results late in Q2. GEN-003 is a therapeutic vaccine for genital herpes targeting Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. Positive GEN-003 data could position Genocea as a potential acquisition target by a larger vaccine player, Tenthoff tells investors today in a research note. Large vaccine makers include Sanofi (SNY), Merck (MRK), GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Pfizer (PFE) and Novartis (NVS). The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Genocea with a $14 price target. Shares of the clinical-stage vaccine developer with a $227M market capitalization closed yesterday up 83c to $10.22.
