Pfizer Inc. Research Report

On September 12, 2013, ViiV Healthcare, a joint company by Pfizer Inc.
(Pfizer) and GlaxoSmithKline plc (GlaxoSmithKline), announced initial results
from the Phase IIIb/IV FLAMINGO (ING114915) study. The Company noted that the
open-label study compared once-daily regimens containing 50mg dolutegravir
with once-daily regimens containing a protease inhibitor (PI) (800mg darunavir
boosted with 100mg ritonavir) in treatment-naive adults with HIV-1. At the
48-week time point between the dolutegravir and darunavir-based regimens, the
initial results demonstrated non-inferiority. "This is the first study in our
clinical programme to compare dolutegravir to a boosted protease inhibitor in
treatment-naive patients. PIs are often selected as part of a first-line
regimen for treatment-naive patients, so these data provide important
information regarding dolutegravir as a treatment choice for these patients,"
said Dr. John Pottage, Chief Medical Officer of ViiV Healthcare. The Full

On September 17, 2013, Sanofi SA (Sanofi) and its subsidiary Genzyme announced
that the European Commission has granted marketing authorization for Lemtrada.
Genzyme informed that it plans to begin launching Lemtrada and the previously
approved Aubagio in the EU soon. "The approvals of Lemtrada and Aubagio in the
European Union represent an important milestone for Genzyme and demonstrate
our focus on scientific innovation and commitment to multiple sclerosis
patients. This is particularly exciting as the EU approval is the first for
Lemtrada globally," said David Meeker, M.D., President and CEO of Genzyme.
"The Lemtrada clinical trial data support its potential to meaningfully
address disability in active RRMS patients, while Aubagio's efficacy, safety
and convenient dosing may provide an important alternative to injectable
therapies. The approvals of Lemtrada and Aubagio represent a significant step
forward in the way we think about treating this disease," added Hans-Peter
Hartung M.D., Ph.D., Professor and Chairman of the Department of Neurology at
Heinrich-Heine-University in Duesseldorf, Germany. The Full Research Report on

On September 9, 2013, Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc. (Neurocrine) announced
Phase IIb results for the 50mg dose of NBI-98854, a small molecule VMAT2
inhibitor in development for tardive dyskinesia. According to the results, the
50 mg dose in Phase IIb Kinect study did not meet the primary endpoint, while
the 100mg dose showed a statistical and clinically significant improvement.
"Although this was not the result we anticipated in the 50mg dose based on the
data set from the earlier clinical studies, we were pleased to see a clear
dose related response at the end of Week 2, with the 100mg dose," said Kevin
C. Gorman, President and CEO of Neurocrine. "The 100mg dose was statistically
superior to placebo as well as providing a clinically significant improvement
in tardive dyskinesia symptoms and importantly a very good safety profile. We
will now perform an additional Phase II study utilizing 100mg and higher
doses." The Full Research Report on Neurocrine Biosciences, Inc. - including
