10:30 EDTNVO, SNYSanofi advances after FDA delays rival insulin product
Sanofi (SNY) is climbing after the FDA decided that rival Novo Nordisk (NVO) would have to carry out a new study on its insulin product, Tresiba, before the product could be approved in the U.S. Sanofi's Lantus insulin competes with Tresiba, which has already been approved in Europe and Japan. Both Lantus and Tresiba are long acting insulin products, but Tresiba is effective for a longer time period and can be dosed more effectively, Novo has stated. The FDA required a new study to assess the effects of Tresiba on the heart before the product could be approved in the U.S. The study results probably won’t be reported before 2015, Novo said. In mid-morning trading, Sanofi advanced 90c, or 2%, to $47.40, while Novo Nordisk tumbled $26, or 13.50%, to $166.50.

09:01 EDTSNYRegeneron and Sanofi announces Praluent Phase 3 data
Regeneron (REGN) and Sanofi (SNY) announced that, in a new pooled analysis of heterozygous familial hypercholesterolemia patients included in the ODYSSEY clinical trial program, Praluent significantly reduced bad cholesterol, known as low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. This analysis included 1,257 HeFH patients, the largest group of HeFH patients ever studied in a Phase 3 program. At week 24, when the primary efficacy endpoint was assessed, patients treated with Praluent had an average 56 percent greater reduction in LDL-C compared to placebo in both arms. Reductions were observed as early as week 4 and were maintained for the duration of therapy, until week 78.

06:35 EDTSNYAlnylam price target raised to $184 from $180 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Edward Tenthoff raised his price target for Alnylam Pharmaceuticals (ALNY) to $184 saying the company over the weekend reported positive Phase I data on ALN-PCS showing LDL-cholesterol lowering comparable to Amgen (AMGN) and Sanofi/Regeneron's (REGN) anti-PCSK9 antibodies, but with only quarterly or potentially every 6-month injections. Tenthoff recommends using the recent pullback in shares of Alnylam as a buying opportunity and keeps an Overweight rating on the name.

08:01 EDTSNYAmgen pricing for Repatha competitive with Praluent, says Piper Jaffray
After the FDA announced last night that it has approved Amgen's (AMGN) Repatha injection, Piper Jaffray analyst Joshua Schimmer said that the drug's indications seem "generally in line" with those for Praluent from Regeneron (REGN) and Sanofi (SNY). Amgen disclosed an annual WAC of $14,100 for Repatha, which the analyst notes is about $500 per year below Praluent, but Schimmer said that the actual recognized price for each will ultimately be determined by discounting. Schimmer also noted that Amgen said it is working with payers and other purchasers on "innovative pricing programs," though he is uncertain if that means the company is working on a kind of "pay per performance" scheme. The analyst, who believes the market will prove large enough for both treatments, keeps a $200 price target and Overweight rating on Amgen shares.
