    Novartis raises full-year targets, aims to settle U.S. lawsuit

    Novartis boss Vas Narasimhan raised full-year targets on Thursday and announced that $700 million has been set aside in the hope of settling a decade-old lawsuit alleging that the Swiss drugmaker bribed U.S. doctors. Shares in the company rose about 5% to their highest since 2015, buoyed by second-quarter results, earnings guidance and the prospect of avoiding trial in a case that began in 2011 as a whistleblower lawsuit filed by a former employee. The lawsuit, since joined by the U.S. government, contends that Novartis paid millions of dollars in kickbacks to doctors so they would prescribe its products, including hypertension treatment Lotrel and diabetes drug Starlix.

    Amgen and Novartis drop Alzheimer's-prevention study after patients worsened

    Amgen Inc. and Novartis AG announced Thursday afternoon that they will discontinue a study into a potential Alzheimer's disease prevention therapy after patients in the study showed worsening conditions. "An assessment of unblinded data during a regular pre-planned review identified worsening in some measures of cognitive function," the companies said in a joint announcement. "The sponsors concluded that the potential benefit for participants in the studies did not outweigh the risk." The phase 2/3 study, performed in conjunction with Banner Alzheimer's Institute, was testing the BACE1 inhibitor CNP520, or umibecestat, which is an amyloid-focused drug. Biogen Inc. failed in testing of an amyloid-focused drug earlier this year, leading some to predict that focusing on the sticky protein found in the brain could be a losing route to a drug for the debilitating neurodegenerative disease. "We still believe amyloid plays an important but complex role in Alzheimer's disease," Amgen executive David Reese said in Thursday's announcement. Novartis shares were down 1.5% in after-hours trading Thursday, while Amgen shares were not moving after the announcement.

    Amgen, Novartis abandon two Alzheimer’s drug studies

    Amgen and Novartis have closed two studies trying to find drugs for Alzheimer’s disease, dealing another blow to the millions of patients left waiting for a treatment for the neurodegenerative disorder. The pharmaceutical companies, along with their partner, the research centre Banner Alzheimer’s Institute, said that some patients on the trials had shown a worsening — rather than the hoped for improvement — in cognitive function. The decision comes after Biogen, a neuroscience-focused biotech company, closed down its Alzheimer’s drug trial with Japanese company Eisai in April, after they found the drug was not going to be effective.
