Johnson & Johnson Research Report

On June 6, 2013, Janssen R&D Ireland (Janssen), a part of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, released primary efficacy and safety results from four Japanese Phase 3 clinical studies demonstrating the use of the investigational NS3/4A protease inhibitor simeprevir (TMC435) led to sustained virologic response 12 weeks after the end of treatment (SVR12) in patients with genotype 1 hepatitis C, when administered once daily with pegylated interferon and ribavirin. The four studies examined the use of simeprevir in patients who were treatment naïve, as well as patients who were non-responders to prior therapy or relapsed following treatment with pegylated interferon with or without ribavirin. The studies supported the new drug application for simeprevir, which was submitted to Japanese regulatory authorities in February 2013.

AbbVie Inc. Research Report

On June 3, 2013, AbbVie Inc. (AbbVie) announced results from a Phase 1 study of ABT-199, an investigational BCL-2 (B-cell lymphoma 2) selective inhibitor, for the treatment of patients with relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), the most common leukemia in the United States, and relapsed/refractory non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). The Phase 1 trial was designed to assess the safety, determine the maximum tolerated dose and recommended Phase 2 dose, and evaluate the pharmacokinetics of ABT-199 in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL and NHL. Gary Gordon, M.D., divisional Vice President of AbbVie's Oncology Clinical Development, said, "The ABT-199 data underscore AbbVie's commitment to the development of treatments for some of the hardest-to-treat cancers like CLL and NHL. Early trials of ABT-199 have shown the compound's potential in these hematological malignancies, which support the continuation of its clinical development program."

Eli Lily & Co. Research Report

On June 3, 2013, Eli Lilly & Co. (Lilly) announced results from its PRONOUNCE trial of ALIMTA (pemetrexed for injection) for treatment of nonsquamous, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The PRONOUNCE trial compared an ALIMTA (pemetrexed), carboplatin doublet regimen to a paclitaxel, carboplatin and bevacizumab triplet regimen. The study did not achieve its primary superiority endpoint of improved progression-free survival without grade four adverse events (G4PFS). No significant difference was observed between the treatment arms for secondary endpoints of progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival, overall response rate and disease control rate. Richard Gaynor, M.D., Vice President of Product Development & Medical Affairs for Lilly Oncology, said "The history of ALIMTA clinical evaluation - from histology to its use in the maintenance therapy paradigm - encourages us to explore new avenues to determine if we can improve patient outcomes. These data give us additional insights that further inform the vast body of ALIMTA clinical data."

Novartis AG Research Report

On June 5, 2013, Novartis announced that it will present new data to show that its Gilenya drug (fingolimod), the first once-daily oral therapy approved to treat people with relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS) has positively impacted the key measures for multiple sclerosis (MS) - relapse rates, brain volume loss, lesions and disability progression, at the 23rd meeting of the European Neurological Society (ENS) on June 10, 2013. New findings from the TRANSFORMS study showed that a greater proportion of patients were disease free after one year on Gilenya treatment compared to interferon. Dr. Timothy Wright, Global Head Development, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, commented, "These new analyses are very encouraging in that they not only support the role of Gilenya as having an anti-inflammatory effect but also highlight how Gilenya can improve the key measures of this debilitating disease."
