    Eisai to pull weight-loss drug due to cancer concerns

    Eisai Co. Ltd. said Thursday that it would pull its weight-loss drug Belviq off the market in the U.S. A long-term trial, which studied the drug's cardiovascular impact, was required as part of the Food and Drug Administration approval in 2012. This study found that people taking the drug reported higher rates of cancer than those taking the placebo. Eisai said it still believes Belviq has a positive benefit-risk profile for the patients for which it is indicated but would still pull the drug from the market. "Eisai's interpretation of the data from the Camellia-Timi 61 trial differs from that of the FDA," the company said in a news release. Eisai's stock is up 4% over the past year, compared to the S&P 500 , which has gained 22%.

    Biogen, Eisai revive plans for Alzheimer's drug, surprising market

    Shares in Eisai Co , Biogen's Japanese partner in the drug, were quoted up 18% to the daily limit high of 6,534 yen in Tokyo trading. The field of experimental Alzheimer's treatments is littered with high-profile failures, with many major drugmakers abandoning the race to develop a medicine for a disease that makes up 60%-70% of an estimated 50 million dementia cases globally. Any medicine that effectively treats the disease is likely to become one of the world's top-selling drugs and could be transformative for Biogen, which is facing multiple challenges over its product pipeline.

    UPDATE 2-Biogen scraps two late-stage trials for Alzheimer's treatment

    Biogen Inc and Eisai Co Ltd are abandoning two late-stage trials for their Alzheimer's treatment in a widely anticipated move that comes months after the companies scrapped trials of another drug for the memory-robbing disease. The companies said on Friday the decision was based on the results of a review conducted by a data safety monitoring board, which recommended discontinuing the trials as benefits from the treatment, elenbecestat, did not outweigh its risks. Shares of Biogen were up 2.3% at $237.60 as some analysts said ending the trial would save the company costs associated with running it through its completion.
