07:53 EDTBIIB, TEVA, NVS, SNYRuling on Sanofi MS drug may have implications for Teva, Biogen, Reuters says
Sanofi's (SNY) new multiple sclerosis pill Aubagio won an EU approval recommendation, but the European Medicines Agency refused to give it a "new active substance" designation because it is too similar to an older drug, meaning generic copies could be launched in Europe in as little as three years, reported Reuters, citing a Bernstein analyst. The analyst added that such generics could "wreak havoc" on the rest of the European MS market and could impact drugs from Teva (TEVA), Biogen Idec (BIIB) and Novartis (NVS). Reference Link

13:15 EDTNVSFDA expands use of Novartis' Promacta to include children ages 1 and older
Ligand Pharmaceuticals (LGND) announced that the FDA has approved an expanded use for Promacta, a Novartis (NVS) product, to include children 1 year of age and older with chronic immune thrombocytopenia who have had an insufficient response to corticosteroids, immunoglobulins or splenectomy. Promacta was acquired by Novartis in March from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Promacta was discovered as a result of research collaboration between GSK and Ligand Pharmaceuticals and was developed by GSK. The updated label also includes a new oral suspension formulation of Promacta that is designed for younger children who may not be able to swallow tablets. Promacta was approved by the FDA as a tablet formulation in June 2015 for children 6 years of age and older and in 2008 for use in adult patients with the same condition. The label expansion of Promacta was based on data from two double-blind, placebo-controlled trials, including the largest Phase 3 clinical trial in this patient population. Treatment with Promacta significantly increased and sustained platelet counts among pediatric patients with chronic ITP with an insufficient response to prior chronic ITP therapies, and some patients taking concomitant ITP medications were able to reduce or discontinue their use of these medications, primarily corticosteroids. Promacta should be used only in those whose degree of thrombocytopenia and clinical condition increase the risk for bleeding.

05:25 EDTNVSNovartis acquires all remaining rights to Ofatumumab from GSK
Novartis (NVS) announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire all remaining rights to Ofatumumab from GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Ofatumumab, a fully human monoclonal antibody which targets CD20, is being developed for relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis, or RRMS, and other autoimmune indications. Novartis previously acquired the rights to Ofatumumab for oncology indications and it is marketed under the brand name Arzerra. Novartis will be responsible for the worldwide development, regulatory and commercialization activities for Ofatumumab. Under the terms of the agreement, Novartis will make an initial upfront payment of $300M to GSK for the acquisition of the compound and a further payment of $200M payable following the start of a phase III study in MS by Novartis. Upon completion of pre-determined milestones, contingent payments of up to $534M may be made. Novartis will also pay royalties of up to 12% to GSK on any future net sales of Ofatumumab in autoimmune conditions.

07:05 EDTBIIBBiogen, ALS Association, Columbia collaborate to drive understanding of ALS
Biogen, the ALS Association and Columbia University Medical Center announced a new collaboration to better understand the differences and commonalities in the ALS disease process and how genes influence the clinical features of the disease. The project, "Genomic Translation for ALS Clinical care", will involve a combination of next generation genetic sequencing and detailed clinical phenotyping in 1500 people with ALS. The goal of the project is to provide a basis for the development of precision medicine, or more individually tailored therapies for ALS. "We want to bring genomics right to the point of care in ALS where instead of focusing on retrospective DNA samples with limited clinical information, we focus on patients who are under active clinical management," said ALS Association Chief Scientist Lucie Bruijn, Ph.D., M.B.A. "By focusing on patients seen by participating ALS clinics, this project will allow investigators to ask how different genetic causes of ALS translate into different clinical consequences."
