Research Report On June 4, 2013, St. Jude Medical, Inc. (St. Jude Medical) announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given the Company approval to begin the EnligHTN IV Renal Denervation Study, the first trial using the EnligHTN Multi-Electrode Renal Denervation System to treat patients with drug-resistant high blood pressure. According to the Company, renal denervation is a minimally invasive therapy that may provide a lasting reduction in blood pressure for patients with hypertension and are resistant to medications. It is a specialized ablation procedure that targets nerves along the renal arteries leading to the kidneys. This intentional disruption of the nerves may cause a decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Frank J. Callaghan, President of the St. Jude Medical Cardiovascular and Ablation Technologies Division, said, "Researching the treatment of hypertension is one example of the ongoing investments St. Jude Medical is making to deliver high-quality, innovative products, such as the EnligHTN Renal Denervation System, which aim to reduce health care costs and improve patient outcomes."

(ADR) Research Report On June 3, 2013, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (ADR) (Teva) announced that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) has recommended that a Marketing Authorization may be issued in the European Union for Lonquex (XM22 lipegfilgrastim) for the reduction in the duration of neutropenia and the incidence of febrile neutropenia in adult patients treated with cytotoxic chemotherapy for malignancy (with the exception of chronic myeloid leukemia and myelodysplastic syndromes). Dr. Michael Hayden, Teva's President of Global R&D and Chief Scientific Officer, said, "Effective prophylaxis against neutropenia and febrile neutropenia is a high priority for patients undergoing cytotoxic chemotherapy. This chemotherapy attacks rapidly dividing bone marrow cells and dramatically reduces the ability to fight off infection, which can have serious consequences for patients. Loquenex reduces the neutropenia that can lead to these consequences. We look forward to receiving final approval and being able to offer this medication to patients."
