Celgene announces technology collaboration with Sage Bionetworks

Celgene Corporation and Sage Bionetworks announced a collaboration to develop an iPhone application utilizing the Apple ResearchKit framework to improve the understanding of the burden of disease for patients living with chronic anemia due to myelodysplastic syndromes or beta-thalassemia. Celgene and Sage Bionetworks have chosen to address chronic anemia caused by myelodysplastic syndromes and beta-thalassemia. These diseases impose a great burden on affected individuals that is difficult to understand and quantify, and typically have clinical endpoints outside traditional measures. The collaboration seeks to move to a paradigm where this and other information like physiological testing are collected on a multi-dimensional and regular basis. In addition to helping collect difficult to quantify data, the new mobile study will collect neurological assessments of patients using cognitive testing software from BrainBaseline, a leading technology for the self-assessment of cognitive performance. The app will also be an important channel for two-way communication and support for patients living with their disease - allowing them to understand their physical functioning and other symptoms of anemia.

Celgene data suggests viable drug, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Geoffrey Porges notes that Celgene has announced top-line results from Phase 1b study of GED-301 in Crohn's Disease, and says that absent statistical analyses or a greater insight into participant performance across the study's treatment arms, or longer duration of follow-up, it is difficult to evaluate the full significance of these results. Nonetheless, the analyst believes the drug seems to have some modest efficacy which bodes positively for potential approval as a front-line agent in Crohn's Disease. He reiterates a Market Perform rating on the shares.

Jefferies sees 'attractive buying opportunities' in Biotech
The Jefferies Biotechnology team sees "attractive buying opportunities" amidst the pre-election weakness. While volatility will likely continue into the election, valuation multiples are near-historic lows and policy concerns, while valid, are likely overstated, the analysts tell investors in a research note. They recommend using the weakness to buy select names ahead of a potential improvement in sentiment. Jefferies likes Gilead (GILD) and Celgene (CELG) among large-caps, The Medicines Co. (MDCO), Alkermes (ALKS) and Vertex (VRTX) among mid-caps, and Alder Biopharmaceuticals (ALDR), Cempra (CEMP), Ultragenyx (RARE) and Immunomedics (IMMU) among small-caps.
