Pfizer Inc. Research Report

On December 4, 2013, Pfizer Inc. (Pfizer) announced an update of its clinical data access policy that will simplify and broaden access to information gathered in Pfizer-sponsored clinical trials. According to Pfizer, the updated policy meets or exceeds the "Principles of Responsible Data Sharing" issued by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) in July 2013. Pfizer said that the updated policy builds upon and expands the Company's established methods of clinical trial information sharing, including Pfizer's long track record of submitting for publication results from all interventional clinical trials in patients and its pioneering efforts to provide clinical trial results and data to study participants. In addition, the Company stated that its expanded clinical data access policy also reinforces its current practice of submitting for publication manuscripts for all interventional clinical trials in patients, regardless of outcomes, within 18 months of study completion, and Pfizer's commitment to register and post summary results for interventional human clinical trials to clinicaltrials.gov in the United States and to registries outside the United States, as required.

Puma Biotechnology Inc. Research Report

On December 4, 2013, Puma Biotechnology, Inc. (Puma Bio) announced top line results from the Phase II clinical trial of Puma's investigational drug (PB272) neratinib for the neoadjuvant treatment of breast cancer (I-SPY 2 TRIAL). According to the Company, the I-SPY 2 TRIAL is a randomized Phase II clinical trial for women with newly diagnosed Stage 2 or higher (tumor size at least 2.5 cm) breast cancer that addresses whether adding investigational drugs to standard chemotherapy in the neoadjuvant setting is better than standard chemotherapy. Puma Bio stated that the goal of the trial is to match investigational regimens with patient subsets on the basis of molecular characteristics (biomarker signatures) that benefit from the regimen. The Company also revealed that the neratinib-containing regimen graduated from the I-SPY 2 TRIAL based on having a high probability of success in Phase III with a signature of HER2-positive/HR-negative. It further added that in this group, treatment with the neratinib-containing regimen resulted in a higher pCR rate compared to the control arm (standard neoadjuvant chemotherapy: paclitaxel in combination with Herceptin (trastuzumab), followed by doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide).
