6:29 am Threshold Pharma and Merck KGaA (MKGAY) agree upon terms for the licensing back of all rights to evofosfamide to Threshold (THLD) :

The companies have a global license and co-development agreement for evofosfamide, an investigational hypoxia-activated prodrug for the treatment of cancer, which was discovered and initially developed by Threshold.

  • The decision to return rights to evofosfamide to Threshold follows the unblinding of two Phase 3 clinical trials of evofosfamide (TH-CR-406 and MAESTRO) and a previously unplanned, subsequent interim futility analysis of a Phase 2 clinical trial of evofosfamide in patients with non-squamous non-small cell lung cancer (n-s NSCLC). As previously announced, both Phase 3 trials failed to meet the primary endpoint of demonstrating a statistically significant improvement in overall survival.
  • Following the topline results from the two Phase 3 clinical trials, Threshold and Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany decided to unblind the Phase 2 clinical trial in n-s NSCLC and conduct an interim futility analysis. An independent Data Safety Monitoring Board conducted the analysis and concluded that the trial is unlikely to reach its primary endpoint of improving overall survival with statistical significance. As a result, further enrollment in this trial will be closed. Additional findings from the interim analysis indicated that evofosfamide plus pemetrexed demonstrated longer progression-free survival associated with a reduction in the risk of progression or death by approximately 30%. No new safety findings were reported. Data for this trial will be finalized and results presented at a future medical meeting.

6:26 am Aquinox Pharma receives official minutes from its December 8 meeting with the FDA's DBRUP, updates on its plans for development of AQX-1125 for the treatment of patients with bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis (AQXP) :

Discussed at the meeting with the FDA's Division of Bone, Reproductive and Urologic Products were guidance and recommendations regarding proposed pivotal trial designs with AQX-1125 for BPS/IC, as well as additional supportive clinical, preclinical and manufacturing activities that could potentially be required for registration. The proposed design for Aquinox's intended first pivotal trial of AQX-1125 remains a three-arm, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled Phase 3 clinical trial, with 12 weeks dosing followed by an open label extension, to assess the efficacy and safety of AQX-1125 in both male and female BPS/IC patients. Patients will be randomized to receive one of two potential doses of AQX-1125 or placebo. DBRUP confirmed that International Council for Harmonization requirements for the safety database would apply and recommended increasing male patient participation in Aquinox's development program to support the desired label claim. Consequently, Aquinox is evaluating the most efficient approach to meet safety database requirements and male participation, which may increase the size of the planned Phase 3 trials or require additional Phase 2 trials.

  • Additional relevant topics discussed included the proposed use of maximum daily pain as a primary endpoint for registration, which DBRUP indicated would be potentially acceptable, subject to consultation with the Division of Anesthesia, Analgesia and Addiction Products upon receipt of a final protocol. Discussion on secondary endpoints was consistent with the company's expectations. Importantly, Aquinox shared with the FDA final audited analysis of the secondary endpoint of urinary frequency from the LEADERSHIP trial demonstrating a statistically significant reduction in urinary frequency with AQX-1125, compared to placebo (p = 0.04), after determining that the previous unaudited analysis had not been normalized for assessing frequency over a 24 hour period. Both Aquinox and the FDA agreed that improvement in urinary frequency, in addition to reduction in pain, would be an important endpoint in assessing the benefit of AQX-1125 to BPS/IC patients.
  • Aquinox also announced that it has recently completed a clinical trial demonstrating bioequivalence between AQX-1125 capsules and tablets. All future clinical development will utilize AQX-1125 tablets. Aquinox is also planning to seek Scientific Advice from the European Medicines Agency in the first half of 2016 on topics similar to those discussed with the FDA.

3:32 am Qiagen sees FY15 EPS and revs below consensus (QGEN) :

  • Co issues downside guidance for Q4 (Dec), sees EPS of $0.31-0.32 vs. $0.33 Capital IQ Consensus Estimate; sees Q4 (Dec) revs of $348 mln vs. $357.79 mln Capital IQ Consensus Estimate.
  • Co issues downside guidance for FY15 (Dec), sees EPS of $1.05-1.06 vs. $1.08 Capital IQ Consensus Estimate; sees FY15 (Dec) revs of $1.28 bln vs. $1.29 bln Capital IQ Consensus Estimate.
  • 2016 Outlook: "Our current expectations for 2016 are for approximately 6% adjusted net sales growth at constant exchange rates (:CER), and for adjusted earnings per share at
    CER to grow approximately in line with sales."
  • Co's Commentary: "...Our anticipated results for the fourth quarter of 2015 are disappointing given the shortfall against our expectations for more improvements in adjusted net sales and adjusted earnings per share compared to the same period in 2014. This performance was hampered by factors that included volatility in the timing of revenues from the growing portfolio of companion diagnostic partnerships as well as lower revenues from instruments, even though we exceeded our target for new placements of QIAsymphony automation systems. Despite this setback, and due to the nature of these factors, QIAGEN continues to have a solid outlook for accelerating growth in 2016 based on the progress made on key initiatives during 2015."

3:23 am Emergent BioSolutions receives IRS ruling for the planned spin-off of its biosciences business (EBS) : Co's Commentary: "...Our next steps include selecting the Aptevo senior management team, filing with and obtaining clearance from the Securities and Exchange Commission of a Form 10 Registration Statement, and completing the distribution of Aptevo shares to our stockholders, which we expect to be completed by the middle of 2016."

3:21 am Cytokinetics presents analyses demonstrating predictive value of slow vital capacity for clinical outcomes in ALS (CYTK) :

Co announced the presentation of exploratory analyses of data from EMPOWER, a Phase 3 clinical trial of dexpramipexole in patients with ALS, which demonstrated the rate of decline of slow vital capacity predicts the risk of meaningful clinical events, including a decline in the three respiratory questions of the ALSFRS-R, as well as the time to the first occurrence of respiratory insufficiency, tracheostomy or death. Data from placebo-treated patients in EMPOWER were provided to Cytokinetics by Knopp Biosciences.

Key findings from the analyses of data from EMPOWER include:

  • The overall slope of decline in percent predicted SVC from baseline through the follow-up period of 1.5 years was -0.090 percentage points per day (2.73 percentage points per month)
  • Older subjects had a steeper slope of decline in SVC (-0.12 percentage points per day), as did subjects with baseline ALSFRS-R less than 39 (-0.10 percentage points per day).
  • A slowing in the decline in SVC by 0.05 percentage points per day from baseline to the month 6 visit predicted reduction in risk by 19% of any decline in the respiratory subdomain of ALSFRS-R or death; by 22% for the first onset of respiratory insufficiency or death; by 23% for first occurrence of tracheostomy or death; and by 23% for death at any time after the month 6 visit

3:18 am AcelRx provides anticipated 2016 milestones; reports initiation and completion of final Phase 3 trial in the U.S. for Zalviso, NDA Resubmission (ACRX) :

Co announced anticipated 2016 milestones for its product portfolio, including ARX-04 (sufentanil sublingual tablet, 30 mcg) and Zalviso (sufentanil sublingual tablet system, 15 mcg). Specifically, AcelRx's corporate goals in the upcoming year are as follows:

  • ARX-04 ER and Postoperative Study Completion. AcelRx has finalized the remaining clinical plans for ARX-04 for the treatment of moderate-to-severe acute pain in a medically supervised setting, following a recent pre-NDA meeting with the FDA. Enrollment in the current open-label study (SAP302) in the emergency room (:ER) will be continued, and a new study, known as SAP303, is expected to be initiated in the first quarter of 2016 in postoperative patients with moderate-to-severe acute pain. SAP303 will focus on enrolling patients older than 40 years of age and will allow for administration of ARX-04 for up to 12 hours. Both studies are expected to be completed in 2016. 
  • ARX-04 NDA Submission. AcelRx intends to pursue an indication for ARX-04 of moderate-to-severe acute pain in a medically supervised setting. Assuming successful completion of the above studies, the company anticipates submitting the NDA for ARX-04 in the second half of 2016.
  • Zalviso Open-Label Phase 3 Study Initiation and Completion. The company continues to advance the regulatory process for Zalviso and has completed a protocol review with the FDA. The Phase 3 study (IAP312) will primarily measure the rate of device errors, including the failure to dispense medication as well as the incidence of misplaced or dropped tablets. AcelRx expects to initiate the study in the first quarter of 2016.
  • Zalviso NDA Submission. Pending timely completion of the IAP312 study, AcelRx expects to resubmit the NDA for Zalviso before the end of 2016.
  • Zalviso EU Commercial Launch. In September 2015 the European Commission approved Zalviso for the management of acute moderate-to-severe post-operative pain in adult patients. The marketing authorization was granted for the 28 EU member states as well as for the European Economic Area countries, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Grunenthal Group, AcelRx's licensee in Europe, will be working with the member states of the EU and EEA to ensure that Zalviso is made available to those patients who would benefit from an effective and reliable solution for their acute moderate-to-severe post-surgical pain. The companies expect the product to be available to Western European patients in the first half of 2016

3:14 am Advanced Accelerator Applications reports Phase 3 NETTER-1 study met its primary endpoint by demonstrating that treatment with Lutathera (AAAP) :

Advanced Accelerator Applications S.A. (AAAP) announced that new safety and efficacy data from the pivotal Phase 3 NETTER-1 study investigating the treatment of Lutathera (177-Lu-Dotatate) in patients with inoperable, progressive, somatostatin receptor positive midgut neuroendocrine tumors.

  • Lutathera's NETTER-1 study is the first Phase 3 international, multi-center, randomized, controlled trial evaluating 177Lu-DOTA0-Tyr3-Octreotate (Lutathera) in patients with inoperable, progressive, somatostatin receptor positive midgut NETs. 230 patients with Grade 1-2 metastatic midgut NETs (both functioning and not functioning) were randomized to receive Lutathera 7.4 GBq every 8 weeks (x4 administrations) versus Octreotide LAR 60 mg every 4-weeks. The primary endpoint was PFS per RECIST 1.1 criteria, with objective tumor assessment performed by an independent reading center every 12 weeks.
  • Secondary objectives included objective response rate, overall survival, safety, and health-related quality of life.
  • The Phase 3 NETTER-1 study met its primary endpoint by demonstrating that treatment with Lutathera was associated with a statistically significant and clinically meaningful risk reduction of 79% in disease progression or death versus a treatment with a double dose of Octreotide LAR.
  • The median PFS in the Lutathera arm is not yet reached, whilst the median PFS in the Octreotide LAR 60 mg arm was 8.4 months.
