    3 Stocks Raising Hopes in Troubled Large-Cap Pharma Industry

    In spite of a strong start in 2018, the pharma/biotech industry is struggling currently, presumably due to a shift in focus to lowering of high drug prices and faster approval of generics. This has led to an increase in merger & acquisition activity and may boost innovation and capital building in the biotech industry. Earlier in the year, we have seen Sanofi SA (NYSE:SNY) and Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ:CELG) acquiring smaller biotech companies.

    [$$] Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca Drop Two Late-Stage Alzheimer’s Drug Trials

    AstraZeneca PLC and Eli Lilly & Co. on Tuesday scrapped two late-stage trials of an experimental Alzheimer’s drug they were co-developing, the latest blow in the long quest to find a breakthrough for the memory-robbing disorder. The companies said the decision was taken after an independent data-monitoring committee concluded that trials associated with lanabecestat, the experimental drug, wouldn’t achieve their original goals. An AstraZeneca spokesman said the two will continue to jointly pursue an early-stage trial of another experimental Alzheimer’s drug.

    Lilly-AstraZeneca latest to abandon Alzheimer's drug trials

    Eli Lilly and Co and AstraZeneca Plc said on Tuesday they would discontinue late-stage trials testing their Alzheimer's treatment, the latest among a slew of drugmakers to stop developing treatments for the memory-robbing disease. The treatment, lanabecestat, belongs to a class of drugs called beta secretase cleaving enzyme (BACE) inhibitor, that blocks an enzyme involved in the production of a protein that creates brain plaques, considered a major cause of the disease. Experimental Alzheimer's drugs have had a dismal track record, with more than 100 failures, with Johnson and Johnson last month stopping mid-stage trials testing its BACE inhibitor drug.

    Another Alzheimer's Drug Fails as Lilly, Astra Halt Tests

    Eli Lilly & Co. and AstraZeneca Plc ended two late-stage trials of an experimental drug for Alzheimer’s disease after the treatment failed to show any signs of working, adding to a litany of disappointments for the memory-robbing illness. An independent data monitoring committee found that the medicine, lanabecestat, was unlikely to meet the goals of the studies, one for early Alzheimer’s and the other for mild dementia related to the disease, the companies said in a statement Tuesday. Many researchers now believe that administering drugs after amyloid has built up in the brain may come too late to affect Alzheimer’s progress.

    Analyzing AstraZeneca’s Cash Flow and Valuation

    In the first quarter, AstraZeneca’s (AZN) cash outflow from operating activities rose YoY (year-over-year) to $140 million from $88 million, due to an increase in the movement of working capital and higher short-term provisions for the launch of new medicines. AstraZeneca generated $273 million from investing activities in the first quarter, compared with $146 million in Q1 2017. This change was due to lower capital expenditure and the timing of receipts on disposal of intangible assets.
