astrazeneca plc (ZEG) Key Developments

AstraZeneca and Illumina Inc. Partner to Develop NGS Panel for Companion Diagnostics

AstraZeneca has entered into a collaboration with Illumina Inc. to develop its next generation sequencing, or NGS, platform for companion diagnostic tests applicable across AstraZeneca's oncology portfolio. In the first instance, AstraZeneca intends to apply Illumina's technology to a novel companion diagnostic test in pivotal studies for one of its investigational oncology compounds. Illumina's NGS technology allows rapid sequencing of multiple genes in a much faster and cheaper way than traditional DNA sequencing methods. Under the collaboration, it will be used to screen a panel of several gene sequences, scanning for all possible genetic variants - known and unknown - rather than specified mutations from a single tumour sample. The comprehensive information obtained from sequencing full genes will be used to predict which patients will respond to certain treatments, and will go through appropriate regulation. Doctors are increasingly using companion diagnostic tests as an essential part of personalised healthcare to help them understand the causes of disease at a molecular level.

AstraZeneca Announces Positive Results from CLEAR1, CLEAR2 and CRYSTAL

AstraZeneca has announced positive results from CLEAR1, CLEAR2 and CRYSTAL, the pivotal Phase III clinical trials investigating the potential of lesinurad, a selective uric acid re-absorption inhibitor, or SURI, as a combination therapy for the treatment of patients with symptomatic gout. Lesinurad is an investigational agent that inhibits the URAT1 transporter, increasing uric acid excretion and thereby lowering serum uric acid (sUA). CLEAR1 and CLEAR2 studied lesinurad (200mg and 400mg once daily) in combination with the xanthine oxidase (XO) inhibitor allopurinol, in symptomatic gout patients not achieving target sUA levels on their current allopurinol dose. CRYSTAL studied lesinurad (200mg and 400mg once daily) in combination with the XO inhibitor febuxostat (80mg once daily) in gout patients with tophi (visible nodules of uric acid crystals that are deposited in joints and skin). In CRYSTAL, the three most commonly reported adverse events for patients receiving lesinurad in combination with febuxostat were nasopharyngitis, arthralgia and upper respiratory tract infection. The incidence of renal-related adverse events (including serious events) and incidence of kidney stones with lesinurad 200mg plus XO inhibitor was comparable to placebo plus XO inhibitor. The incidence of renal-related adverse events and kidney stones was higher with lesinurad 400mg plus XO inhibitor. A full assessment of the safety and tolerability findings of all three studies is ongoing.

Pfizer Reportedly To Resume Talks To Acquire AstraZeneca

Reports regarding plans of Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) to take over AstraZeneca PLC (LSE:AZN) has caused political ructions on both sides of the Atlantic - without an agreed deal on the table, reported CNBC. CNBC added that with the expiration of a three-month period during which Pfizer must stay away from AstraZeneca, under U.K. takeover law, speculation that the maker of Viagra may eventually seal this deal has risen. Under U.K. takeover regulations, AZ management can now re-engage with Pfizer (but not the other way round). Pfizer has one chance to approach AstraZeneca with a new bid in the next three months, but it must be done in private under U.K. takeover laws, and may mean the company paying above the odds for its smaller rival. Pfizer and AstraZeneca spokespeople declined to comment.
