GSK Breast Cancer Trial Scaled Back has reported that GlaxoSmithKline is to scale back a phase III clinical trial looking into potential breast cancer treatments.

The trial, which has been running since 2007, is evaluating the effectiveness of the breast cancer drug Tyverb in four different combinations, following surgery. The patients in the trial receive either Tyverb, Roche’s established drug Herceptin, Herceptin followed by Tyverb or both drugs.

An interim report has indicated that the patients only receiving Tyverb are not demonstrating any improvement compared to Herceptin, so that arm of the trial has been discontinued. Those who are halting their treatment are to discuss other options with trial physicians. 8,400 patients are taking part in the study, and the remaining three trials are to continue as normal.

Race Hot’s Up For GSK Investment

The North West Evening Mail has reported the on-going attempts for various towns to attract pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline’s next big investment in the UK.

The half a billion pound investment to build a new biopharmaceutical plant is to be built in one of five places, with the Evening Mail reporting on a site near Ulverston’s attempts to gain the 300 potential jobs. The local council has guaranteed GSK planning permission on an existing plant, and has also dropped the planning fees which could have cost nearly £100,000, as incentives.

Councillor Graham Vincent has voiced his approval of the scheme, believing his council needs to fight for the “incredible” investment potential. The site would be at the cutting edge of the biopharmaceutical industry and set itself apart from traditional chemical manufacturing. However, the council is not being naïve about the race for the investment, determined to do all it can to secure the development which could bring in upwards of £10 million annually for whichever council is chosen. Barnard’s Castle in Durham, as well as plants in Montrose and Irvine in Scotland, are also being considered.

EU Approves Proposed Genzyme and Sanofi-Aventis Acquisition

iStock_000006963239Medium[1]As reported by The Wall Street Journal, on Wednesday, the European Union (EU) approved the proposed acquisition of the Biotechnology company Genzyme by French Pharmaceutical company, Sanofi-Aventis.

It was concluded by the EU’s executive arm that the acquisition would not have a negative impact on competition in Europe. They stated, “The Commission’s examination has shown that the proposed transaction would not lead to significant combined market shares in the product categories where the parties’ activities overlap.

“In addition, the proposed transaction also does not raise concerns in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, where both parties are developing treatments. In all cases there will remain a sufficient number of other credible competitors.”
