    AstraZeneca to stockpile drugs as Brexit 'safety net'

    AstraZeneca (AZN.L) is increasing stockpiles of those medicines in Britain and Europe that could be affected by Brexit by around 20 percent, in preparation for potential disruption if the UK crashes out of the EU without a deal. The move affects drugs made in Britain that could be exported to Europe and supplies in the European Union that may be headed the other way. A company spokesman said on Wednesday that AstraZeneca currently held several months of supplies of such medicines and this was being increased for products on both sides of the Channel.

    On June 27, AstraZeneca (AZN) and Merck (MRK) reported positive data for their Phase 3 Lynparza trial, SOLO-1, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial for ovarian cancer. The drug met the primary endpoint of progression-free survival in women with BRCA1-mutated advanced ovarian cancer. Lynparza is the only PARP2 inhibitor to show significant activity in a first-line maintenance setting. Based on this data, the two companies plan to initiate discussions with authorities for regulatory submissions.

    [$$] Difficult Conversation: When the Harasser Is a Client

    At many companies, client relationships are the most difficult to police – and the most important to protect. A former vice president at market-data firm Research Now SSI alleged in a lawsuit filed in April that a senior executive from the airline Virgin America, Stuart Dinnis, began kissing and groping her without warning in a hotel elevator late at night during a 2016 travel-industry conference. Earlier that day, she and her boss had discussed Mr. Dinnis, then Virgin America’s director of loyalty, as an important client to cultivate during the conference.

    Hitting cancer early: AstraZeneca's bid to outmaneuver rivals

    AstraZeneca (AZN.L) suffered its biggest daily share price drop a year ago after a key cancer drug trial failed amid feverish speculation the chief executive might quit. Soriot and his team are increasingly confident that while AstraZeneca may have lost one part of the battle for cancer market dominance, it can still win elsewhere by targeting tumors before they have spread around the body. The idea that immunotherapy may actually work best in less sick patients is logical, since the immune system's natural role is to destroy nascent tumors.

    AstraZeneca PLC and Eli Lilly & Co. on Tuesday scrapped two late-stage trials of an experimental Alzheimer’s drug they were co-developing, the latest blow in the long quest to find a breakthrough for the memory-robbing disorder. The companies said the decision was taken after an independent data-monitoring committee concluded that trials associated with lanabecestat, the experimental drug, wouldn’t achieve their original goals. An AstraZeneca spokesman said the two will continue to jointly pursue an early-stage trial of another experimental Alzheimer’s drug.
