    Pfizer-Lilly pain drug found effective in late-stage study

    The study also showed that patients who received two doses of the drug, tanezumab, showed a statistically significant improvement in physical function and an assessment of osteoarthritis by the patients, when compared to placebo, meeting all three goals of the study. Tanezumab belongs to an investigational category of pain medications known as nerve growth factor and could emerge as an alternative to opioids, for osteoarthritis and other types of pain. Pfizer and Lilly, in a $1.8 billion deal, agreed in 2013 to jointly develop and sell tanezumab for several pain-related conditions, with the companies equally sharing development expenses and future sales.

    Hikma raising injectable opioids output to help ease shortage at U.S. hospitals

    London-listed pharmaceutical group Hikma said on Wednesday it was increasing its supply of hydromorphone to U.S. hospitals to help ease a shortage of injectable opioids used to treat patients. Injectable opioid painkillers, which hospitals use to manage pain after operations and in terminal illness, have been in short supply for more than a year largely due to production problems at Pfizer, the biggest supplier of the drugs. Pfizer has said it is making progress on its recovery plan, but it estimates that the supply of some of its injectables will not be fully restored until later this year or in 2019.

    Novartis joins Pfizer in halting U.S. drug price hikes

    Novartis expects to hit the top of its 2018 sales guidance after a strong second quarter, the CEO said, despite joining Pfizer in freezing its U.S. drug prices for the rest of the year following pressure from President Donald Trump. Chief Executive Vas Narasimhan said Novartis would likely easily achieve mid-single digit percentage sales growth for 2018, on rising demand for psoriasis-and-arthritis drug Cosentyx and robust sales of heart-failure medicine Entresto. "We would expect to see, assuming continued momentum like we're seeing now, to be at the high end of that range," Narasimhan said, adding that this would come without price hikes as Novartis keeps the lid on medicine costs under pressure from U.S. lawmakers and Trump.
