05:32 EDTNVS, SHPG, MYL, ACTShire 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.

Pfizer (PFE) has insisted that its $160B acquisition of Allergan (AGN) will not be stifled by political opposition, amid criticism that the deal will cost the U.S. Treasury billions of dollars in future tax revenues, the Financial Times reports. Pfizer CEO Ian Read also reiterated his intention to postpone until 2018 a decision on whether to break of the combined entity into two or three smaller companies, but has said that he would be open to offers for its generics unit, the report says. Mylan (MYL) has been connected to a potential acquisition of Pfizer's generic drugs business after it failed in its attempt to buy Perrigo (PRGO) last year, the report says. Reference Link

10:55 EDTNVSRegeneron slips after analyst says sell to avoid risk from Amgen patent suit
Shares of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) fell in morning trading after an analyst at Chardan downgraded the stock to Sell, citing risk from a patent lawsuit in which the biopharmaceutical company is involved. CHARDAN SAYS SELL: Chardan Capital Markets analyst Gbola Amusa downgraded Regeneron to Sell from Neutral this morning, while reducing his price target on shares to $400 from $525. In a note to clients, Amusa said he believes that Regeneron is likely to face significant risks from the upcoming patent infringement case for Praluent. The suit could be a key driver of the company's share price performance in the near future, the analyst said. Regeneron, along with its partner Sanofi (SNY), launched Praluent in the U.S. last year, after the October 2014 filing of a patent infringement suit by Amgen (AMGN) relating to patents for "monoclonal antibodies that bind PCSK9," Amusa noted. The analyst believes that since Regeneron and Sanofi "likely" infringe Amgen's patents for Repatha, the Regeneron-Sanofi partnership could seek to settle the ahead of the trial by agreeing to pay 10%-20% or more of royalties to Amgen for U.S. Praluent sales. Amusa said that "such an outcome we estimate could transfer roughly $750M of operating income per year to Amgen." Further, Amusa said that catalysts surrounding the patent infringement trial are "likely to play out from late February to late March," and concedes that "both sides have good reasons to settle this case for a reasonable royalty." INCREASING COMPETITION: Amusa also noted that he sees increasing competitive risks in 2016 to Regeneron's Eylea from Novartis (NVS) and its partner Ophthotech (OPHT), which continue to progress Fovista into Phase III trials in wet AMD. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Roth Capital upgraded Regeneron to Buy from Neutral on January 19, based on valuation, as the firm said shares do not reflect the value of the company's upcoming catalysts. The firm also raised its price target to $555 from $543. The same day, Credit Suisse initiated Regeneron with a Neutral rating and $552 target. PRICE TARGET: Regeneron slipped 1.4% to $476.02 in morning trading.
