Amgen's Cholesterol Treatment Edges Closer to EMA Approval

Amgen reported a panel to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended for approval its cholesterol treatment Repatha. The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) based its approval on the drug on data from ten Phase III trials. The studies evaluated the safety and efficacy of Repatha in patients with elevated cholesterol. The European Commission traditionally follows the panel's recommendations and issues a final decision within three months. Repatha is a representative of a new kind of cholesterol treatments that potentially may reduce heart attack risks. It contains an inhibitor that binds with a protein that usually degrades low-density lipoprotein receptors, thus reducing the liver's ability to remove the so-called bad cholesterol from the blood. Amgen has been engaged in a tight race with France' Sanofi which is also developing a drug of this kind together with US Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. Neither of the companies has received an approval from the US Food and Drug Agency, but it seems Amgen will be the first to win market approval in the EU.

Amgen Appoints Jonathan P. Graham as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, Effective July 13, 2015

Amgen announced the appointment of Jonathan P. Graham as senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, effective July 13, 2015. He will be responsible for Amgen's legal operations, reporting to Robert A. Bradway, chairman and chief executive officer. Graham will succeed David J. Scott who is retiring August 31, 2015. Graham joins Amgen from Danaher Corporation, where he has served as senior vice president and general counsel, responsible for all legal, governance, regulatory, risk, and compliance matters. Previously, Graham was vice president, litigation and legal policy at General Electric Company and a partner at Williams & Connolly LLP.

Amgen Announces First Results from its Global Phase 2

Amgen announced the first results from its global Phase 2, double-blind, placebo-controlled study evaluating the efficacy and safety of AMG 334 for the prevention of episodic migraine. The study met its primary endpoint of reducing monthly mean migraine days compared with placebo. The data were presented at the 17thCongress of the International Headache Society (IHC 2015) in Valencia, Spain. AMG 334 is a fully human monoclonal antibody under investigation for the prevention of migraine by inhibiting the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor that is believed to transmit signals that can cause incapacitating pain. In the trial, 483 patients were randomized to subcutaneous monthly placebo or AMG 334 (7 mg, 21 mg or 70 mg) in a 3:2:2:2 ratio, respectively. Patients had a mean baseline of 8.7 migraine days per month. The primary endpoint was the change from baseline in monthly migraine days at week 12. Patients randomized to the 70 mg dose group observed a statistically significant 3.4-day reduction in monthly migraine days compared with 2.28 days observed in the placebo group (p=0.021).
