Gilead (GILD) announced follow-up data from a phase II study, on its CAR-T therapy, Yescarta for treatment of refractory large B-cell lymphoma.
Shares of Bluebird Bio (BLUE) were up nearly 20% in early morning trading Monday as investors responded to the company's announcement that its CAR-T candidate, bb2121, produced encouraging results in patients with a deadly blood cancer.
Shares of Gilead Sciences (GILD) are higher on Monday, building on its strength from Friday when it announced its acquisition of Cell Design Labs. Gilead got a boost today from its its presentation at the American Society of Hematology's (ASH) annual meeting, where it and other companies provided update on their CAR-T therapies aimed at cancer. BMO Capital Markets' M. Ian Somaiya wrote that the news was good for Gilead and its peers: Updates from the three leading trials of CD-19 CAR-T therapy in DLBCL (GILD's Yescarta, Juno Therapeutics' (JUNO) JCAR017, Novartis' (NVS) Kymriah) raise the bar yet again for CAR-Ts.
More than half of trial patients with an advanced, aggressive form of blood cancer lived for at least a year after one-time treatment with Yescarta, a novel therapy sold by Gilead Sciences Inc, according to study results presented on Sunday. Yescarta, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in October for aggressive large B-cell lymphoma that did not respond to other treatments, is part of a new class known as chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapies, or CAR-Ts, designed to reprogram the body's own immune cells to recognize and attack malignant cells. Follow-up on 108 patients treated with Yescarta showed that 42 percent remained in remission after a median of 15 months, and 56 percent were still alive, according to research presented in Orlando at the annual meeting of the American Society of Hematology.

Beleaguered biotech investors will likely have to wait until 2018 to get some much-needed relief, analysts say.
Gilead Sciences, (GILD) and its subsidiary Kite announced that they have inked an agreement to acquire Cell Design Labs, for an upfront payment of $175 million.
Drugmaker Gilead Sciences Inc said on Thursday it was acquiring privately-held Cell Design Labs Inc for up to $567 million, giving it access to new technology platforms that would help in the development of cancer drugs. The deal strengthens Gilead's focus on CAR-T drugs, a new class of cancer therapies that involve genetically modifying a patient's own immune cells to better recognize and attack cancer. Gilead said it would make an initial upfront payment to Cell Design of about $175 million and additional payments of up to $322 million upon meeting certain milestones.
