08:15 EDTTEVAFDA approves expanded label for Teva's Azilect
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries announced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has expanded the indication for AZILECT from monotherapy and adjunct to levodopa to now include adjunct to dopamine agonists. The new indication reflects that AZILECT can be used alone or in combination with other Parkinson's disease medications. The approval reinforces the growing clinical evidence demonstrating the benefit of AZILECT across all stages of PD. The FDA approval of the expanded label is based on a supplemental new drug application submitted by Teva, supported by data from the ANDANTE study. The study demonstrated AZILECT provides a clinical benefit by significantly improving total Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale scores compared to placebo in patients on DA monotherapy, while demonstrating tolerability.

08:02 EDTTEVATeva reports statistically significant results in reslizumab trial
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries announced that reslizumab, an investigational anti-IL-5 monoclonal antibody, demonstrated clear levels of efficacy in achieving the primary endpoint of reduction in the frequency of clinical asthma exacerbations compared to placebo in two pivotal Phase III studies in patients with inadequately controlled moderate to severe asthma with elevated levels of blood eosinophils. In both trials, reslizumab treatment showed both clinically relevant and statistically significant reductions in the frequency of CAE compared to placebo. Reslizumab has also demonstrated a positive effect on lung function and asthma control in the Phase III program . The combination of an effect on clinically important exacerbations and on improvements and preservation of lung function suggest that reslizumab may be a uniquely differentiated treatment for patients with moderate to severe asthma with elevated levels of blood eosinophils. This initial set of results shows the adverse event profile of reslizumab was comparable to placebo in both trials. The incidence of common AEs was consistent with those seen in a moderate to severe asthma population, the most frequent being upper respiratory tract infections, asthma and headache. Further analyses of additional efficacy and safety data are ongoing. These new data are from two global Phase III 12-month, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group studies, evaluating the efficacy and safety of intravenously administered reslizumab once every four weeks, compared to placebo in asthma patients that are inadequately controlled by standard of care therapy.
