Zoetis Inc. Research Reports
On August 27, 2014, Zoetis Inc.

Zoetis informed that the receipt of license was based on clinical data showing that the vaccine meets USDA's standards for safety, efficacy, purity and potency. According to the Company, the full license follows USDA's provision of a conditional license in fall of 2013, which authorized the vaccine's sale in states affected by GA 08. Kalen Cookson, DVM, MAM, a technical services veterinarian working for Zoetis, said, "Thanks to the continued support of industry, the USDA and the university, which provided the viral isolates on which the vaccine is based, we are pleased to offer our customers a fully licensed vaccine for GA 08 before winter, when disease challenge is highest."

Sanofi SA Research Reports
On August 19, 2014, Sanofi SA (Sanofi) reported that its subsidiary Genzyme has received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Cerdelga™ (eliglustat) capsules, the only first-line oral therapy for certain adult Gaucher disease type 1 patients. The Company informed that FDA's approval is based on efficacy data from two positive Phase 3 studies for Cerdelga: one in patients new to therapy, and the other in patients switching from approved enzyme replacement therapies. Further, the Cerdelga clinical development program is the largest ever conducted in Gaucher disease, with approximately 400 patients treated in 29 countries. David Meeker, M.D., President and CEO, Genzyme, said, "More than twenty years ago, Genzyme introduced the world's first treatment for Gaucher disease. We are proud to build on this legacy and continue to improve Gaucher patients' lives through ongoing research and new therapies.

GlaxoSmithKline plc Research Reports
On August 26, 2014, GlaxoSmithKline plc (GSK) announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for its once-daily use of Promacta® (eltrombopag) in patients with severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) who have had an insufficient response to immunosuppressive therapy (IST). According to GSK, SAA is a blood disorder where the bone marrow fails to make enough red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The Company stated that Eltrombopag, an oral thrombopoietin receptor agonist, works by helping to induce proliferation and differentiation of bone marrow stem cells to increase production of blood cells. GSK informed that sNDA approval is based on results from an investigator-sponsored Phase II study (09-H-0154) conducted by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). GSK notified that prior to this approval, Promacta gained Breakthrough Therapy designation status from the FDA in January 2014 and Priority Review in April 2014. Dr. Paolo Paoletti, President of Oncology, GSK, said, "FDA approval of Promacta addresses a significant treatment need for this very rare but serious blood disorder in those who have failed current treatment options."
