novartis ag-sponsored adr (NVS) Key Developments

Federal Trade Commission Approves Final Order Preserving Competition in Market for Braf- and Mek-Inhibitor Oncology Drugs

Following a public comment period, the Federal Trade Commission has approved a final order settling charges that Novartis AG's $16 billion acquisition of GlaxoSmithKline's portfolio of cancer-treatment drugs likely would be anticompetitive. Under the order, first announced in February 2015, Novartis has agreed to divest all assets related to its BRAF- and MEK-inhibitor drugs, currently in development, to Boulder, Colorado-based Array BioPharma. The Commission vote approving the final order was 5-0.

Novartis AG Announces FDA Approval for Jadenu to Simplify Treatment Administration for Patients with Chronic Iron Overload

Novartis announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Jadenu (deferasirox) tablets, a new oral formulation of Exjade (deferasirox) tablets for oral suspension, for the treatment of chronic iron overload due to blood transfusions in patients 2 years of age and older, and chronic iron overload in non-transfusion-dependent thalassemia syndromes (NTDT) in patients 10 years of age and older. Jadenu is the only once-daily oral iron chelator that can be swallowed whole. Many patients with myelodysplastic syndromes, sickle cell disease or thalassemia need repeated blood transfusions and consequently, long-term daily chelation therapy. Jadenu oral tablets can be taken in a single step, with or without a light meal, simplifying administration of treatment for chronic iron overload. Exjade is a dispersible tablet that must be mixed in liquid and taken on an empty stomach. Jadenu is approved under accelerated approval based on a reduction of liver iron concentrations and serum ferritin levels. Continued approval for this indication may be contingent upon verification and description of clinical benefit in confirmatory trials. Chronic iron overload is a life-threatening cumulative toxicity that results from blood transfusions required to treat sickle cell disease, myelodysplastic syndromes, thalassemia and other conditions. Chronic iron overload also can occur in patients with NTDT due to increased iron absorption in the stomach and intestines. If left untreated, chronic iron overload can damage the liver and heart.

Novartis Accelerates Cancer Immunotherapy Efforts with Aduro Biotech Alliance and Launch of New Immuno-Oncology Research Group

Novartis announced that it is stepping up its efforts to harness the body's immune system to combat cancer. The company has entered into a major multiyear alliance with Aduro Biotech that is focused on the discovery and development of next generation cancer immunotherapies targeting the STING (Stimulator of Interferon Genes) pathway and launched a new immuno-oncology research group led by renowned cancer vaccine expert Glenn Dranoff, MD. The addition of STING agonists adds firepower to Novartis' diverse portfolio of immunotherapies that includes chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CART) technology and novel checkpoint inhibitors. Currently the CART program, CTL019, is in phase 2 clinical trials and checkpoint inhibitors targeting PD1, LAG3, and TIM3 are expected to enter the clinic in mid-2015. Under the terms of the agreement with Aduro, Novartis will make an upfront payment of $200 million to Aduro and will make an initial equity investment in the company for $25 million, with a commitment for another $25 million equity investment at a future date. Aduro will lead commercialization activities and book sales in the US, with Novartis leading commercialization and recognizing sales in the rest of the world. The companies will share in profits in the US, Japan and major European countries. Novartis will pay Aduro a royalty for sales in the rest of the world.
