Eli Lilly Drugs Trial Success

Eli Lilly has had success in its Phase III trial for necitumumab, the company’s successor to Erbitux.

The study produced promising overall survival data for non-small cell lung cancer which means that a regulatory filing has been slated for 2014. The drug, when combined with others, allowed for a much better survival rate when compared to chemotherapy alone for people with stage IV metastatic squamous non-small cell lung cancer.

The results were a surprise, coming off the back of fears that the drug caused blood clots in some patients. However, instances have become less frequent. If approved, necitumumab may become the first drug to treat squamous lung cancer.

Angel Biotech to Increase Staff

Angel Biotechnology has announced a link with WH Partnerships Ltd to increase biomanufacturing facilities by up to fivefold, reports pharmaceutical-jobs.com.

Angel is re-commissioning a site in Newcastle Upon Tyne in conjunction with WH Partnerships, resulting in new biotech jobs and initially employing ten people. The facility is expected to be up and running early in 2012, with current activities going into preparing the site and bringing it up to operational standards. This is important, with the Newcastle site being able to conduct everything from phase I trials to manufacturing for cell therapy companies.

Angel “expects the level of interest from US companies pursuing development opportunities in the UK to continue to grow” which will hopefully mean further expansion. The company’s facility in Scotland is currently fully occupied, so the Newcastle expansion is a necessary step forward for Angel. Despite an operating loss in the first half of 2011, the company is upbeat, putting the loss down to “the phasing of revenue milestones” and an increase in staff effecting gross margin levels.

NICE Approves Amgen’s Osteoporosis Drug

iStock_000006963239Medium[1]As reported by the Wall Street Journal, the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) has recommended that Amgen’s osteoporosis drug Denosumab be made publically available on the NHS.

NICE have recommended that Amgen’s drug me made available to postmenopausal patients as postmenopausal women are at an increased risk of osteoporotic fractures are treated with oral bisphosphonates.

Speaking of the recommendation, Carole Longson, Health Technology Evaluation Centre Director at NICE “Our independent Appraisal Committee felt that there was good quality evidence to show that denosumab is a useful addition to the treatment options available for women who can’t have oral bisphosphonates … We believe that older women at increased risk of osteoporotic fractures who cannot take alendronate, and either risedronate and etidronate, should be considered for this drug alongside the other options available in order to help prevent the misery of breaking a bone.”
