Roche Holding Seeks Acquisitions

Roche Holding AG (SWX:ROG) plans for acquisitions. "We're sticking to our previous strategy. This includes targeted, small acquisitions and partnerships like the ones we have carried out in recent months," Chief Executive Officer Severin Schwan told business newspaper Finanz und Wirtschaft. "We take a look at everything. But at present the calculations only add up in the fewest cases," Schwan said, "We have to weigh up internal and external opportunities. It can't be that we have to put important internal opportunities on ice because of too-expensive acquisitions."

Agency for Science, Technology and Research Signs Deal with Roche to Develop Novel Oncology Drugs

Agency for Science, Technology and Research has announced that its Bioprocessing Technology Institute (BTI) has entered into an agreement with Roche to identify novel drug candidates for the detection and treatment of cancer. According to Agency for Science, Technology and Research, the collaboration will make use of a new mechanism discovered by BTI by which antibodies can directly target and destroy cancer cells, thereby opening up the possibility of an entirely new class of cancer treatment. BTI's capabilities will be allied to Roche's established expertise in developing monoclonal antibody drugs (mAbs).

Roche Holding AG Revamps Research Operations, Cuts 1,000 US Jobs; Announces Executive Changes

Roche Holding AG announced that it was overhauling its research operations by closing the 80-year-old New Jersey facility where Valium was discovered, cutting 1,000 jobs and replacing its drug research chief. The company will also shutter its 127-acre Nutley, N.J.-based campus and move those activities to Germany and Switzerland, a consolidation aimed at curbing drug development costs. The sites in Switzerland and Germany are expected to add about 80 jobs. The moves will free up resources that it can invest in these promising clinical programs while also increasing overall efficiency. The move allows Roche to keep its research and drug development costs largely unchanged, despite an increase in clinical research projects in the last 18 months. Jean-Jacques Garaud, head of pharmaceutical research, will leave the company at the end of this week. He will be replaced by Mike Burgess, head of cancer drugs.
