05:27 EDTSNY, REGNSanofi, Regeneron announce new data from positive sarilumab Phase 3 trial
Sanofi (SNY) and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (REGN) presented positive results from a phase 3 trial of investigational drug sarilumab in rheumatoid arthritis patients who were inadequate responders to methotrexate therapy. New data presented at the meeting showed that sarilumab increased major clinical response rates defined as achieving an ACR70 for at least 24 consecutive weeks and showed sustained improvement in signs and symptoms of RA after 52 weeks, which were secondary endpoints of the trial. As previously announced, in this study, called SARIL-RA-MOBILITY, sarilumab met all three co-primary endpoints, demonstrating improvement in disease signs and symptoms at 24 weeks, physical function at 16 weeks and inhibition of joint damage progression at 52 weeks. The SARIL-RA-MOBILITY Phase 3 trial enrolled 1,197 adult patients with active, moderate-to-severe rheumatoid arthritis, who were inadequate responders to MTX therapy. Patients were randomized to one of three treatment groups dosed subcutaneously every other week, sarilumab 150 milligrams, sarilumab 200 mg, or placebo, all in combination with MTX. Both sarilumab groups showed statistically significant improvements compared to the placebo group in all three co-primary endpoints.

05:42 EDTSNYIllumina announces strategic partnership with AstraZeneca, Sanofi, Janssen
Illumina (ILMN) announced it has formed collaborative partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies to develop a universal next-generation sequencing, or NGS,-based oncology test system. The system will be used for clinical trials of targeted cancer therapies with a goal of developing and commercializing a multi-gene panel for therapeutic selection, resulting in a more comprehensive tool for precision medicine. Initial strategic partners include AstraZeneca (AZN), Janssen Biotech, a Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) company, and Sanofi (SNY). Illumina is working with the strategic partners to develop assays that detect and measure multiple variants simultaneously to support partners’ clinical trials, with the objectives of securing regulatory agency approvals and test commercialization. In parallel, Illumina is working with key thought leaders to set standards for NGS-based assays in routine clinical oncology practice, as well as to define regulatory frameworks to enable this new testing paradigm. Together, Illumina and its strategic partners aim to transition from single-analyte companion diagnostics to panel-based assays that select for “companion therapeutics.”
