Europe's drug regulator reiterated on Friday that benefits of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine outweigh any risks, as part of a detailed guidance from ongoing reviews into rare blood clots to help individual nations determine the shot's use. The renewed backing comes after several countries in the European Union and worldwide have limited the use of the vaccine, known as Vaxzevria, while Denmark has stopped its use altogether, after possible links to clotting issues were confirmed. The interim analysis by a committee of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) determined that serious side effects of rare blood clots are likely to occur in 1 out of 100,000 vaccinated people, the regulator said in a statement.

U.S. investment fund Davidson Kempner and British investment firm Pioneer Point Partners will jointly invest up to 3.5 billion euros ($4.2 billion) by 2025 in a large-scale data centre in Portugal to tap demand from global tech firms. The two companies said in a joint statement on Friday the campus in the city of Sines, 150 km (93 miles) south of the capital Lisbon, will include five buildings with a useful capacity to supply up to 450 megawatts of cheap energy from renewable sources to the servers. Prime Minister Antonio Costa later hailed the project as "the largest foreign direct investment in Portugal in recent decades", expecting Sines to attract further foreign investment with a government plan to install a green hydrogen production hub there.
PD-1 Antagonist Antibody Under Clinical Development for Solid Tumors in Collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)First AnaptysBio-Generated Antibody, of 8 Currently Under Clinical Development, to Obtain Regulatory Approval in Europe$10MM Milestone Payment Earned by AnaptysBio Upon EC Approval; Additional $35MM and $165MM Milestones Due Upon Dostarlimab Regulatory and Commercial Milestones, RespectivelyAnaptysBio Due to Receive 8% to 25% Royalty on Global Net Sales of Dostarlimab SAN DIEGO, April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AnaptysBio, Inc. (Nasdaq: ANAB), a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing first-in-class antibody product candidates focused on emerging immune control mechanisms applicable to inflammation and immuno-oncology indications, today announced that the European Commission has granted conditional marketing authorization for JEMPERLI (dostarlimab) for use in women with mismatch repair deficient (dMMR)/microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer who have progressed on or following prior treatment with a platinum containing regimen. The approval makes dostarlimab the first anti-PD-1 therapy available for endometrial cancer in Europe. JEMPERLI was generated by AnaptysBio using its proprietary somatic hypermutation (SHM) antibody platform and subsequently developed by TESARO, Inc., now a part of GSK, under a collaboration agreement. Eight AnaptysBio-generated therapeutic antibodies have advanced into clinical development to date, and JEMPERLI is the first AnaptysBio-generated antibody to obtain regulatory approval. “We are delighted that JEMPERLI is the first AnaptysBio-generated antibody to be approved in Europe and look forward to meaningful potential future milestone and royalty revenue from our collaboration with GSK,” said Hamza Suria, president and chief executive officer of AnaptysBio. “These revenues will continue to support AnaptysBio’s primary value-creation strategy, which is focused on advancing wholly-owned first-in-class therapeutic antibodies through multiple upcoming clinical catalysts in 2021 and 2022.” JEMPERLI is indicated as a monotherapy for treatment of adult patients with recurrent or advanced dMMR/MSI-H endometrial cancer, who have progressed on, or are being dosed following, prior treatment with a platinum-containing regimen, and is the first indication approved by the European Commission for JEMPERLI. AnaptysBio has earned a $10.0 million milestone payment as a result of this approval. Earlier this month, AnaptysBio earned a $20.0 million milestone payment as a result of approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for JEMPERLI in endometrial cancer. In 2020, AnaptysBio received milestone payments of $10.0 million and $5.0 million for the FDA’s and EMA’s acceptances of the BLA and Marketing Authorisation Application (MAA) filings for JEMPERLI, respectively. Earlier this year, FDA accepted a subsequent BLA filing for JEMPERLI for the treatment of adult patients with dMMR recurrent or advanced solid tumors who have progressed on or following prior treatment. AnaptysBio recently received a $10.0 million payment from GSK as a result of this milestone. Payments totaling an additional $35 million will be due to AnaptysBio upon the achievement of future regulatory milestones for JEMPERLI in the United States and Europe. Furthermore, $165 million in sales milestones are due to AnaptysBio upon achievement of certain annual JEMPERLI net sales revenues. Royalties due to AnaptysBio for dostarlimab range from 8% to 25% of global net sales, where AnaptysBio will receive 8% of annual global net sales below $1 billion, and 12-25% of net sales above $1 billion. JEMPERLI is also being developed by GSK for the treatment of other tumor types and treatment settings, including currently ongoing phase III trials in recurrent or primary advanced endometrial cancer in combination with chemotherapy standard of care (RUBY) and the phase III FIRST study of platinum-based therapy with dostarlimab and niraparib versus standard of care platinum-based therapy as first-line treatment of stage III or IV non-mucinous epithelial ovarian cancer. In addition, JEMPERLI is being evaluated as monotherapy and in combination therapy across multiple tumor types and other cancers, including platinum-resistant ovarian cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, multiple myeloma and melanoma. GSK continues to develop additional antibodies partnered with AnaptysBio, including cobolimab, an AnaptysBio-generated anti-TIM-3 antagonist antibody, and GSK4074386, an anti-LAG-3 antagonist antibody. Under the terms of the collaboration, AnaptysBio is due to receive development and regulatory milestone payments for each of the first two indications for each of these antibodies. AnaptysBio can potentially receive a total of $1.1 billion in aggregate milestone payments under this collaboration. In addition, AnaptysBio will receive royalties ranging from 4% to 8% on global net sales of cobolimab and GSK4074386 and 1% of GSK’s global net sales of ZEJULATM. Important Information for JEMPERLI in the EU IndicationJEMPERLI is indicated as monotherapy for the treatment of adult patients with mismatch repair deficient (dMMR)/microsatellite instability-high (MSI-H) recurrent or advanced endometrial cancer (EC) that has progressed on or following prior treatment with a platinum-containing regimen. Immune-Mediated Adverse Reactions Immune-related adverse reactions, which may be severe or fatal, can occur in patients treated with antibodies blocking the programmed cell death protein-1 / programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-1/PD-L1) pathway, including JEMPERLI. While immune-related adverse reactions usually occur during treatment with PD-1/PD-L1 blocking antibodies, symptoms can also manifest after discontinuation of treatment. Immune-related adverse reactions may occur in any organ or tissue and may affect more than one body system simultaneously. Important immune-related adverse reactions listed in this section are not inclusive of all possible severe and fatal immune-related reactions. Early identification and management of immune-related adverse reactions are essential to ensure safe use of PD-1/PD-L1 blocking antibodies. Patients should be monitored for symptoms and signs of immune-related adverse reactions. Clinical chemistries, including liver tests and thyroid function tests, should be evaluated at baseline and periodically during treatment. For suspected immune-related adverse reactions, adequate evaluation including specialty consultation should be ensured. Based on the severity of the adverse reaction, treatment with JEMPERLI should be withheld or permanently discontinued and corticosteroids (1 to 2 mg/kg/day prednisone or equivalent) or other appropriate therapy administered. Upon improvement to Grade ≤1, corticosteroid taper should be initiated and continued for 1 month or longer. Based on limited data from clinical studies in patients whose immune-related adverse reactions could not be controlled with corticosteroid use, administration of other systemic immunosuppressants can be considered. Hormone replacement therapy for endocrinopathies should be instituted as warranted. Treatment with JEMPERLI should be permanently discontinued for any Grade 3 immune-related adverse reaction that recurs and for any Grade 4 immune-related adverse reaction toxicity, except for endocrinopathies that are controlled with replacement hormones and unless otherwise specified in the Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC). Immune-Related Pneumonitis Pneumonitis has been reported in patients receiving JEMPERLI. Patients should be monitored for signs and symptoms of pneumonitis. Suspected pneumonitis should be confirmed with radiographic imaging and other causes excluded. Patients should be managed with JEMPERLI treatment modifications and corticosteroids. Immune-related pneumonitis occurred in 7 (1.4%) of 515 patients, including Grade 2 (1.2%) and Grade 3 (0.2%) pneumonitis. Pneumonitis led to discontinuation of JEMPERLI in 3 (0.6%) patients. Systemic corticosteroids (prednisone ≥ 40 mg per day or equivalent) were required in all 7 patients experiencing pneumonitis. Pneumonitis resolved in 6 (85.7%) patients. Immune-Related ColitisJEMPERLI can cause immune-related colitis. Patients should be monitored for signs and symptoms of colitis and managed with treatment modifications, anti-diarrhoeal agents and corticosteroids. Colitis occurred in 8 (1.6%) patients, including Grade 2 (1.0%) and Grade 3 (0.6%) colitis. Colitis did not lead to discontinuation of JEMPERLI in any patients. Systemic corticosteroids (prednisone ≥ 40 mg per day or equivalent) were required in 2 (28.6%) patients. Colitis resolved in 6 (75.0%) patients experiencing colitis. Immune-Related HepatitisJEMPERLI can cause immune-related hepatitis. Patients should be monitored for changes in liver function periodically as indicated, based on clinical evaluation and managed with JEMPERLI treatment modifications and corticosteroids. Hepatitis occurred in 1 (0.2%) patient, which was Grade 3. Systemic corticosteroids (prednisone ≥ 40 mg per day or equivalent) were required. Hepatitis did not lead to discontinuation of JEMPERLI and resolved. Immune-Mediated Endocrinopathies Hypothyroidism occurred in 37 (7.2%) patients, all of which were Grade 2. Hypothyroidism did not lead to discontinuation of JEMPERLI and resolved in 13 (35.1%) patients. Hyperthyroidism occurred in 10 (1.9%) patients, including Grade 2 (1.7%) and Grade 3 (0.2%). Hyperthyroidism did not lead to discontinuation of JEMPERLI and resolved in 8 (80%) patients. Thyroiditis occurred in 2 (0.4%) patients; both were Grade 2. Neither event of thyroiditis resolved; there were no discontinuations of JEMPERLI due to thyroiditis. Adrenal insufficiency occurred in 7 (1.4%) patients, including Grade 2 (0.8%), and Grade 3 (0.6%). Adrenal insufficiency resulted in discontinuation of JEMPERLI in 1 (0.2%) patient and resolved in 2 (28.6%) patients. Immune-Mediated Nephritis Nephritis, including tubulointerstitial nephritis, occurred in 3 (0.6%) patients; all were Grade 2. Systemic corticosteroids (prednisone ≥ 40 mg per day or equivalent) were required in 2 (66.7%) patients experiencing nephritis. Nephritis led to discontinuation of JEMPERLI in 1 (0.2%) patient and resolved in 2 of 3 (66.7%) patients. Immune-Related RashImmune-related rash occurred in 17 (3.3%) patients, including Grade 3 in 6 (1.2%) patients receiving JEMPERLI. The median time to onset of rash was 41 days (range 2 days to 407 days). Systemic corticosteroids (prednisone ≥ 40 mg per day or equivalent) were required in 5 (29%) patients experiencing rash. Rash did not lead to discontinuation of JEMPERLI and resolved in 13 (76.5%) patients. Immune-Related ArthralgiaImmune-related arthralgia occurred in 21 (4.1%) patients. Grade 3 immune-related arthralgia was reported in 3 (0.6%) patients receiving JEMPERLI. The median time to onset of arthralgia was 87 days (range 1 day to 783 days). Systemic corticosteroids (prednisone ≥ 40 mg per day or equivalent) were required in 2 (9.5%) patients experiencing arthralgia. Arthralgia did not lead to discontinuation of JEMPERLI and resolved in 8 (38%) patients experiencing arthralgia. Other Immune-Related Adverse ReactionsGiven the mechanism of action of JEMPERLI other potential immune-related adverse reactions may occur, including potentially serious events [e.g. myositis, myocarditis, encephalitis, demyelinating neuropathy (including Guillain Barré syndrome), sarcoidosis]. Clinically significant immune-related adverse reactions reported in less than 1% of patients treated with JEMPERLI as monotherapy in clinical studies include autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, pancreatitis, iridocyclitis, uveitis and diabetic ketoacidosis. Patients should be monitored for signs and symptoms of immune-related adverse reactions and managed as described in the SmPC. Solid organ transplant rejection has been reported in the post-marketing setting in patients treated with PD-1 inhibitors. Treatment with JEMPERLI may increase the risk of rejection in solid organ transplant recipients. The benefit of treatment with JEMPERLI versus the risk of possible organ rejection should be considered in these patients. Fatal and other serious complications can occur in patients who receive allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) before or after being treated with a PD-1/PD-L1–blocking antibody. Transplant-related complications include hyperacute graft-versus-host disease (GvHD), acute GvHD, chronic GvHD, hepatic veno-occlusive disease after reduced intensity conditioning, and steroid-requiring febrile syndrome (without an identified infectious cause). These complications may occur despite intervening therapy between PD-1/PD-L1 blockade and allogeneic HSCT. Follow patients closely for evidence of transplant-related complications and intervene promptly. Consider the benefit versus risks of treatment with a PD-1/PD-L1–blocking antibody prior to or after an allogeneic HSCT. Infusion-Related Reactions Infusion-related reactions including hypersensitivity occurred in 7 (1.4%) patients, including Grade 2 (1.2%) and Grade 3 (0.2%) infusion-related reactions. All patients recovered from the infusion-related reaction. ImmunogenicityAnti-drug antibodies (ADA) were tested in 315 patients who received JEMPERLI and the incidence of JEMPERLI treatment-emergent ADAs was 2.5%. Neutralising antibodies were detected in 1.3% of patients. In the patients who developed anti-JEMPERLI antibodies, there was no evidence of altered efficacy or safety of JEMPERLI. Elderly populationOf the 515 patients treated with JEMPERLI monotherapy, 50.7% were under 65 years, 37.9% were 65-75 years, and 11.5% were 75 years or older. No overall differences in safety were reported between elderly (≥ 65 years) and younger patients (< 65 years). Pregnancy, Lactation and FertilityJEMPERLI is not recommended during pregnancy and in women of childbearing potential not using contraception. JEMPERLI should not be used during breast-feeding and breast-feeding should be avoided for at least 4 months after the last dose of JEMPERLI. Fertility studies have not been conducted with JEMPERLI. COMMON ADVERSE REACTIONSJEMPERLI is most commonly associated with immune-related adverse reactions. Most of these, including severe reactions, resolved following initiation of appropriate medical therapy or withdrawal of JEMPERLI. In patients with advanced or recurrent solid tumours (N = 515), the most common adverse reactions (> 10%) were anaemia (25.6%), nausea (25.0%), diarrhoea (22.5%), vomiting (18.4%), arthralgia (13.8%), pruritus (11.5%), rash (11.1%), pyrexia (10.5%) and hypothyroidism (10.1%). JEMPERLI was permanently discontinued due to adverse reactions in 17 (3.3%) patients; most of them were immune-related events. Adverse reactions were serious in 8.7% of patients; most serious adverse reactions were immune-related adverse reactions. Refer to the JEMPERLI Prescribing Information for a full list of adverse events and the complete important safety information.

(Bloomberg) -- Puerto Rico is expected to post a cumulative budget surplus of $15.2 billion through 2035 as $123.5 billion of federal disaster funds and coronavirus relief money helps boost the local economy, according to the commonwealth’s latest fiscal plan.That surplus is crucial because the island’s financial oversight board anticipates using the money to cover Puerto Rico’s debt-service costs. The commonwealth would begin to repay principal and interest on its bonds as soon as January 2022 if it’s able to restructure its debt this year as part of its bankruptcy, according to the plan posted on its website.While the estimate pushes out anticipated deficits by four years to fiscal 2036, Puerto Rico Governor Pedro Pierluisi and the island’s legislature will need to implement structural reforms to realize the surpluses and continue economic growth after the federal cash runs out, Natalie Jaresko, the board’s executive director, told reporters Thursday.“The flow of federal reconstruction funds provides Puerto Rico with significant strength to help its economy recover, but also with an opportunity to pair this federal investment with the reforms they need to do to turn the recovery into lasting economic growth,” Jaresko said.The multi-year proposal serves as a framework for Puerto Rico’s yearly operating budgets. The board is set to vote Friday on the fiscal plan.The release comes as the board has reached tentative deals with bond insurers and rival bondholder groups that would slash $18.8 billion of debt tied to the central government by 61% to $7.4 billion. Those agreements may allow the commonwealth to resolve its bankruptcy this year.Puerto Rico’s bankruptcy started in May 2017, when it sought to restructure most of the $74 billion of debt the commonwealth and its agencies owed at that time. Puerto Rico will pay an estimated $1.6 billion in professional fees and expenses from fiscal 2018 through fiscal 2026 to restructure its obligations, according to the fiscal plan.The projected $15.2 billion surplus is for fiscal 2022 through fiscal 2035, the last year before deficits are set to return. That’s a boost from May 2020, when the board approved a fiscal plan reflecting the pandemic’s harm to the island’s economy and included a $5.8 billion surplus from fiscal 2022 through fiscal 2031, with deficits beginning in fiscal 2032.Still, the $15.2 billion cushion is smaller than the board’s pre-pandemic estimate of an $18.4 billion surplus from fiscal 2022 through fiscal 2037.If island lawmakers fail to implement structural reforms such as increasing workforce participation and making it easier to do business, the commonwealth would have a budget deficit as soon as fiscal 2023, according to the fiscal plan.The island’s economy is expected to increase this year by 1%, up from an earlier estimate of .5%. It’s projected to then grow in the next four years by a combined 1.4%, compared with an earlier forecast of a 3% contraction during that time.“Government stimulus, the stimulus that’s provided a lot of this lift, is an important element of any recovery from a severe economic crisis, but it’s not enough,” Jaresko said. “It doesn’t replace a true economic development plan.”For long-term growth, the fiscal plan includes labor and welfare reforms to boost workforce participation, improvements to K-12 education, reducing hurdles for starting and sustaining a business, and making electricity on the island more reliant and affordable.If enacted, those changes could increase revenue by nearly $31 billion from fiscal 2022 through fiscal 2051, according to the plan.(Updates with bankruptcy costs in the seventh paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
