07:32 EDTTKPYYTaked, Mersana Therapeutics expand partnership for XMT-1522
Mersana Therapeutics and Takeda Pharmaceutical announced that they have entered a new strategic partnership granting Takeda rights to Mersana's lead product candidate, XMT-1522, outside the United States and Canada. The deal also expands an existing collaboration between the companies to provide Takeda with additional access to Mersana's Fleximer antibody-drug conjugate platform and grants Mersana an option at the end of Phase 1 to co-develop and co-commercialize one of these programs in the United States. In addition, the companies will co-develop new payloads for use with ADCs. XMT-1522 is an investigational, Fleximer-based ADC therapy that targets HER2-expressing tumors, including breast, gastric and non-small cell lung cancers. Preclinical data suggest that XMT-1522 may have anti-tumor activity in patients with HER2 low-expressing cancers as well as in patients with HER2 high-expressing cancers that do not respond to currently available HER2-targeting therapies. Mersana anticipates filing an Investigational New Drug application for XMT-1522 with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in mid-2016. Takeda and Mersana will co-develop XMT-1522, and Mersana will lead execution of the Phase 1 trial. Mersana will retain full commercial rights in the United States and Canada while Takeda will have rights in rest of world. Beyond development and commercialization of XMT-1522, the expanded partnership also grants Takeda access to additional targets within Mersana's Fleximer-based ADC platform, with Mersana retaining the right to select one program at the end of Phase 1 for co-development and co-commercialization in the United States. Takeda and Mersana will also work together, leveraging Takeda's proprietary small molecule libraries, to identify and develop novel payloads that both parties will be able to use in new ADC therapies. Takeda signed agreements with Mersana through its wholly owned subsidiary, Millennium Pharmaceuticals, Inc., under which, Mersana will receive an upfront payment of $40 million and an additional payment of $20 million upon clearance of the IND for XMT-1522 by the FDA. Subject to the success of the XMT-1522 and ADC programs, Mersana is eligible to receive milestone payments of more than $750 million combined, as well as royalties. Takeda will also invest up to $20 million in equity in future rounds of Mersana financing.

16:40 EDTTEVAOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
The Dow began the session with triple digit gains thanks in part to solid earnings reports from some of America's bellwether corporations and oil prices, which approached $34 a barrel. The market was unable to hold its opening gains and eventually crossed into negative territory. Before the losses became too big the averages reversed and moved back across the flat line. With oil holding onto its gains and closing above $33 a barrel, the averages closed in positive territory ahead of the next barrage of earnings reports. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell to 278,000 last week, versus the expected 281,000 first-time claims. Durable goods orders dropped 5.1% in December, versus expectations for a decrease of 0.7%. The core reading, which removes transportation items, was down 1.2%, versus expectations for a decline of 0.1%. The National Association of Realtors' pending home sales index for December rose 0.1%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.9%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Facebook (FB) surged 15.5% to $109.11 after the social media giant's fourth quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations. A number of Wall Street analysts increased their price targets for the stock following the report, including Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, who hiked his target to a "Street-high" $170 per share. Facebook management made only one mention of macro concerns for the business in 2016, significantly different than Apple's (AAPL) earnings call on Tuesday night, Munster pointed out... Caterpillar (CAT) reported better than expected quarterly earnings, excluding certain items, but its revenue came in below the consensus forecast and the heavy equipment maker warned that it does not anticipate an improvement in the world economy or commodity prices in 2016. The stock, which had declined almost 20% in the last three months prior to this morning's report, rebounded 4.7% to $61.08 after the company jumped over the lowered bar that had been set by bearish analysts... Under Armour (UA), which had similarly been the focus of concern recently for some bearish analysts, posted better than expected results on the top and bottom line and backed its fiscal year revenue forecast, proving its doubters wrong and sending its share rocketing up 22.5% to $84.00. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Intrexon (XON), Inovio (INO) and Cerus (CERS), which gained a respective 10%, 7.6% and 1.4% as the ongoing Zika virus scare brought attention to the companies' efforts fighting the illness. Also higher were SolarCity (SCTY), Sunrun (RUN) and Vivint Solar (VSLR), with the solar stocks jumping 8.5%, 20.5% and 3.6%, respectively, after the California Public Utilities Commission approved new net-metering rules. Meanwhile, Eagle Pharmaceuticals (EGRX) rose 12.2% to $74.44 after announcing commercial availability of its Bendeka injection in partnership with Teva (TEVA). Among the noteworthy losers was Yahoo (YHOO), which lost 3.2% to $28.75 despite a pre-market spike after SpringOwl Asset Management urged the company to seek an investment from a strategic partner. The news was also followed by reports that CEO Marissa Mayer has started restructuring efforts with an "invest/maintain/kill" list, as well as news that Verizon (VZ) denied a report that it had bid for the company's core Internet business. Also lower were OSI Systems (OSIS), Qualcomm (QCOM) and eBay (EBAY), which fell a respective 31.8%, 8.3% and 12.5% following their quarterly earnings reports. INDEXES: The Dow rose 125.18, or 0.79%, to 16,069.64, the Nasdaq gained 38.51, or 0.86%, to 4,506.68, and the S&P 500 advanced 10.41, or 0.55%, to 1,893.36.
