15:48 EDTSNYGenzyme, Isis present KYNAMRO data at AHA meeting
Genzyme, a Sanofi (SNY) company, and Isis Pharmaceuticals (ISIS) announced that new two-year data from a phase 3 long-term extension study of KYNAMRO injection was presented at a scientific session at the annual American Heart Association meeting. In the study, a retrospective analysis showed that patients treated with KYNAMRO for a mean of two years had a significant reduction in Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events compared to two years prior to therapy. The rate of MACE in patients treated with KYNAMRO for two years were adjudicated by an independent committee and compared to the rate of MACE in the same patients based on their medical history prior to treatment with KYNAMRO. In this analysis, MACE were identified in 62% of patients during two years prior to KYNAMRO treatment, and 9% of patients during a mean of 24.4 months after initiation of treatment with KYNAMRO.

16:04 EDTLLYEli Lilly says empagliflozin tablets reduced A1C, body weight and abdominal fat
Empagliflozin tablets reduced hemoglobin A1C (a measure of average blood sugar over the past two to three months), body weight and several markers of abdominal fat in adults with type 2 diabetes, according to a new retrospective analysis of clinical trial data presented on behalf of Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly and Company at the 2014 Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association in Chicago. Abdominal fat, also known as visceral fat, sits on or near vital organs. The study presented at AHA included analyses of two sets of adults with T2D treated with either empagliflozin or placebo. The first group consisted of 823 adults with high blood pressure who were treated for 12 weeks, while the second examined a pool of 2,476 adults from four different trials who were treated for 24 weeks. These randomized studies compared empagliflozin with placebo as an add-on to existing therapy, including metformin, metformin plus sulfonylurea, or pioglitazone with or without metformin. In both groups, treatment with empagliflozin significantly reduced A1C, body weight and several markers of abdominal fat compared with placebo. Changes in estimated total body fat did not reach statistical significance.

12:56 EDTSNYGenzyme’s Lemtrada approved by the FDA
Genzyme, a Sanofi company, announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Lemtrada, alemtuzumab, for the treatment of patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis. Because of its safety profile, the use of Lemtrada should generally be reserved for patients who have had an inadequate response to two or more drugs indicated for the treatment of MS. “Today’s approval is the culmination of more than a decade of work by Genzyme to develop Lemtrada,” said Genzyme President and CEO, David Meeker. “Lemtrada demonstrated superior efficacy over Rebif on annualized relapse rates in the two studies which were the basis for approval. A comprehensive risk evaluation and mitigation strategy will be instituted in order to help detect and manage the serious risks identified with treatment.” The FDA approval of Lemtrada is based on two pivotal randomized Phase III open-label rater-blinded studies comparing treatment with Lemtrada to Rebif in patients with relapsing remitting MS who were either new to treatment or who had relapsed while on prior therapy . In CARE-MS I, Lemtrada was significantly more effective than interferon beta-1a at reducing annualized relapse rates; the difference observed in slowing disability progression did not reach statistical significance. In CARE-MS II, Lemtrada was significantly more effective than interferon beta-1a at reducing annualized relapse rates, and accumulation of disability was significantly slowed in patients given Lemtrada vs. interferon beta-1a. The clinical development program for Lemtrada involved nearly 1,500 patients with more than 6,400 patient-years of safety follow-up. “The unmet need in MS remains high,” said Edward Fox, M.D., Ph.D., Director of the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic of Central Texas. “It is a great day for people living with relapsing forms of MS in the United States, who will now have access to this new meaningful treatment”.
