St. Jude Medical, Inc. 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." The Full Research

Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (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." The Full Research Report

combination of deuterium modified dextromethorphan (a new chemical entity or
NCE) and ultra-low dose quinidine, used as a metabolic inhibitor. Joao
Stiffert, MD, Avanir's Chief Scientific Officer, said, "Avanir will be allowed
to reference the extensive data generated during AVP-923 development programs
in support of the AVP-786 IND and subsequent new drug application. This has
the potential to substantially reduce the cost and time to market. We

disease and levodopa induced dyskinesia in Parkinson's disease." The Full
