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. The Full Research Report on Johnson & Johnson -

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." The Full

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." The Full Research Report on Eli Lily & Co. - including full detailed

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." The Full Research Report on Novartis

GlaxoSmithKline plc. Research Report

On June 6, 2013, GlaxoSmithKline plc. (GlaxoSmithKline) confirmed that a joint
advisory committee to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) voted to
continue to make Avandia (rosiglitazone) available to appropriate patients
with the majority of the members voting to either modify or remove the Risk
Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program in place. Remaining members
voted to continue the REMS or withdraw Avandia from the US market. Dr. James
Shannon, GSK's Chief Medical Officer, commented, "We appreciate the
committee's thorough examination of the RECORD results and will continue to
work with the FDA as it considers the recommendation of the committee. We
continue to believe that Avandia is a safe and effective treatment option for
type 2 diabetes when used for the appropriate patient and in accordance with
labeling." Pending the FDA's decision, Avandia will be available through the
REMS program to physicians and appropriate patients as an option to help
control blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. The Full Research Report
