13:34 EDTSHPGShire reports results from Vyvanse vs. Concerta studies in adolescents with ADHD
Shire announced top-line results from two Phase 4 efficacy and safety studies of Vyvanse compared with Concerta with a placebo reference arm in adolescents aged 13-17 diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. In SPD489-406, the forced-dose titration study, Vyvanse was found to be statistically superior to Concerta on the primary efficacy analysis with mean reductions on the ADHD RS-IV total score of 25.4 and 22.1 points, respectively. In SPD489-405, the dose optimization study, neither Vyvanse nor Concerta was found to be statistically superior to the other on the primary efficacy analysis, with a larger mean improvement found for Vyvanse than Concerta. The primary efficacy endpoint for both studies was defined as the change from baseline in ADHD-RS-IV total score at Week 6 and Week 8, respectively. In both studies, the types of adverse events appear to be generally consistent with the known safety profile for Vyvanse established in studies of adolescents with ADHD. Shire plans to submit the efficacy and safety data from the two studies for presentation at a future scientific congress.

09:24 EDTSHPGJefferies sees Pharma M&A continuing, lists 22 possible targets
Jefferies analyst David Steinberg believes the M&A wave in the Pharmaceuticals space that began in 2005 can continue as the key drivers remain largely intact. In a note titled "Who is Next? The Feeding Frenzy in Specialty Pharmaceuticals," Steinberg sees deals continuing amid cheap debt, the push for lower corporate taxes and investors rewarding many acquirers for their transactions. He points out there are now around 100 publicly traded Specialty Pharmaceutical companies following the recent life sciences IPO boom. Potential takeover targets, according to Steinberg, include Valeant (VRX), Shire (SHPG), Perrigo (PRGO), Zoetis (ZTS), Mallinckrodt (MNK), Jazz Pharmaceuticals (JAZZ), United Therapeutics (UTHR), Pacira (PCRX), Indivior, Insys Therapeutics (INSY), The Medicines Co. (MDCO), Depomed (DEPO), Spectrum (SPPI), KYTHERA (KYTH), Revance (RVNC), XenoPort (XNPT), Mylan (MYL), Akorn (AKRX), Impax (IPXL), Amphastar Pharmaceuticals (AMPH), Anacor (ANAC) and BioDelivery Sciences (BDSI).
