Roche Tecentriq approval increases competition, says Leerink

Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez says that the FDA approval of Roche's (RHHBY) Tecentriq in second-line non-small cell lung cancer patients regardless of PD-L1 expression comes as no surprise given its previously reported overall survival advantage. Nonetheless, the analyst believes it creates new competition for Bristol-Myers' (BMY) Opdivo and Merck's (MRK) Keytruda in this setting.

Bristol-Myers has negative read through from Roche data, says BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Alex Arfaei says that the positive data on Roche's (RHHBY) TECENTRIQ for second line NSCLC is negative for Bristol-Myers' (BMY) cancer drug, Opdivo. The analyst does not think that TECENTRIQ's results will be superior to that of Opdivo, but he believes that Roche's drug appears to have "a significant" benefit in PD-L1 positive patients." He predicts that Roche's drug could take "meaningful market share, particularly outside of the U.S." The analyst keeps a Market Perform rating on Bristol-Myers.

BioLineRx partnering with Roche company in cancer therapy research
BioLineRx (BLRX) has entered into a collaboration with Genentech, a member of the Roche (RHHBY) Group, to support several Phase 1b studies investigating BioLineRx's BL-8040 in combination with Atezolizumab, Genentech's anti-PDL1 cancer immunotherapy, in multiple cancer indications. The Phase 1b studies will evaluate the clinical response, safety and tolerability of the combination of these therapies, as well as multiple pharmacodynamic parameters, in hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. Under the agreement, Genentech will sponsor and conduct several Phase 1b trials in multiple solid cancer indications. In addition, BioLineRx will sponsor and conduct a Phase 1b study in acute myeloid leukemia patients. The studies are designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the combination of BL-8040 and Atezolizumab. Upon completion of the studies, both parties will have the option to expand the collaboration to include a pivotal registration study. Additional details of the collaboration were not disclosed.

Jefferies cuts Bristol-Myers price target, upgrades AstraZeneca
Jefferies analyst Jeffrey Holford lowered his price target for Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) to $57 from $69 saying the stock is positioned for a "rough mid term ride." The analyst sees a "difficult catalyst" set for Bristol shares with "numerous" upcoming competitor read-outs in non-small cell lung cancer. The market could see worse than expected data from Bristol's CM-026 and CM-568 studies as well as better than expected data from AstraZeneca's (AZN) MYSTIC study and Roche's (RHHBY) Chemo-IO studies in the first half of 2017, Holford tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Hold rating on Bristol and upgraded this morning AstraZeneca to Buy from Hold. Holford prefers Astra for its immunology exposure.

Piper Jaffray analyst Richard Purkiss lowered his price target for Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) to $62 saying he sees the company ceding Opdivo's early-mover advantage in lung cancer to competitors. The analyst expects to see details from Roche's (RHHBY) positive OAK trial of Tecentriq vs. docetaxel in non-small cell lung cancer at the upcoming ESMO meeting. Purkiss also expects to see details from Merck's (MRK) positive KEYNOTE-024 trial of Keytruda. The analyst lowered his post-2016 Opdivo forecasts and reiterates a Neutral rating on Bristol shares.

Leerink sees Bristol-Myers sliding after Merck's 'spectacular' Keytruda data
Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez said Bristol-Myers' (BMY) Checkmate-026 data presented at the European Society of Medical Oncology meeting was disappointing, noting there was no signal of benefit on progression-free survival or overall survival and only "modest differentiation" on response rate in the 88 patients with PDL1 biomarker positivity greater than or equal to 50%. Meanwhile, Merck (MRK) presented "spectacular" data for Keytruda monotherapy at the meeting, said Fernandez, who expects Bristol shares to be down "significantly" today in light of the meeting presentations. The analyst, who still thinks Bristol has a significant opportunity to compete with Merck's Keytruda in the PDL1 high portion of the market, keeps an Outperform rating on Bristol shares, which are down nearly 6% in pre-market trading.

BofA/Merrill analyst Colin Bristow upgraded Merck to Buy and raised its price target to $70 from $57 to reflect its opportunity in first line lung cancer. Bristow significantly raised his Keytruda sales estmate to 7.5B from $5.5B following Merck's first line lung cancer data presentations at ESMO over the weekend and feedback from experts. He expects Keytruda to receive early approval/launch in first line NSCLC from the December 24 PDUFA and to become the standard of care in the identified label and further upside from chemo combo.

Incyte treatment looking 'promising,' says JMP Securities
After reviewing recent data, JMP Securities analyst Liisa Bayko says that the combination of Incyte's (INCY) Epacadostat plus Merck's (MRK) Keytruda is "emerging as a promising treatment, potentially even best in class." The analyst says that the progression free survival rate of the combination in melanoma patients "is emerging to be quite competitive," while the efficacy rate in other solid tumors "seemed encouraging." The analyst raised her price target on Incyte to $110 from $100 and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

Merck 'steals the show' at ESMO with Keytruda data, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Seamus Fernandez said Merck (MRK) stole the show at ESMO with its Keytruda data and he continues to think the company will dominate first line lung cancer treatment for years to come in patients with 50%+ PDL1 expression. Additionally, he expects Merck to gain additional traction in the overall market, noting that confirmation that Keytruda is benefiting patients when combined with Alimta/carboplatin with Alimta maintenance raises the possibility Merck could compete broadly in the overall non-squamous patient population. However, Fernandez keeps a Market Perform rating on Merck, as he thinks its current valuation largely reflects improved growth prospects through 2020.
