Further, the New York Times reported that a week earlier, Johnson & Johnson had recalled 200,000 bottles of liquid Motrin for infants because they may contain tiny particles of plastic.

Research Report On September 11, 2013, Amgen, Inc. (Amgen) announced the publication of a biomarker analysis of Vectibix (panitumumab) in combination with FOLFOX, a type of oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy, for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). According to the analysis published in the New England Journal of Medicine, RAS mutations (mutations found in exons 2, 3, and 4 of KRAS and NRAS), beyond the known KRAS exon 2 mutations, predict lack of response to Vectibix in combination with FOLFOX. Jean-Yves Douillard, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Medical Oncology, Centre R. Gauducheau, France and PRIME Trial Lead Investigator and Author, stated, "While the KRAS exon 2 biomarker is well-known and has facilitated selection of patients more likely to respond to anti-EGFR treatment, we found that there were still some patients who didn't benefit from treatment. This analysis is important as it furthers our understanding of tumor genetics and allows physicians to more accurately match patients to effective treatments."

Research Report On September 12, 2013, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. (Bristol-Myers) reported results from the Phase 3, randomized, double-blind clinical trial (Study 043) comparing Yervoy 10 mg/kg (ipilimumab) (n=399) to placebo (n=400) following radiation in patients with advanced metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC) who have received prior treatment with docetaxel. The Company revealed that the study's primary endpoint of overall survival (OS) did not reach statistical significance (HR = 0.85; 95% CI = 0.72-1.00; p = 0.053). Nevertheless, the Company stated that anti-tumor activity was observed across some efficacy endpoints, including progression free-survival. W. R. Gerritsen, M.D., Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre, Nijmegen, Netherlands, said, "Although the study did not meet its primary endpoint, clinical activity was observed in this Phase 3 trial with a suggestion of greater activity in those with less advanced castration-resistant prostate cancer. These results offer important insights for ongoing and future studies of Yervoy in prostate cancer, including a second large trial of Yervoy in patients with less advanced disease."
