Merck & Company (MRK) and AstraZeneca (AZN) jointly develop and commercialize Lynparza.

Eli Lilly (LLY)/AstraZeneca (AZN) discontinue two late-stage studies on Alzheimer's disease candidate, lanabecestat. Merck's Keytruda gets FDA nod for two new indications.
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.
AstraZeneca and Eli Lilly became the latest Tuesday in a series of firms to scrap studies of a potential Alzheimer's disease treatment that appeared unlikely to work.
Eli Lilly (LLY) and AstraZeneca (AZN) are discontinuing two late-stage studies on their Alzheimer's disease candidate, lanabecestat.
The discontinuation of Lilly/AstraZeneca's two late-stage studies on their Alzheimer's disease candidate, lanabecestat adds to a long list of failed treatment options for this deadly brain disease.
Eli Lilly & Co. and AstraZeneca Plc ended two late-stage trials of an experimental drug for Alzheimer’s disease after the treatment failed to show any signs of working, adding to a litany of disappointments for the memory-robbing illness. An independent data monitoring committee found that the medicine, lanabecestat, was unlikely to meet the goals of the studies, one for early Alzheimer’s and the other for mild dementia related to the disease, the companies said in a statement Tuesday. Many researchers now believe that administering drugs after amyloid has built up in the brain may come too late to affect Alzheimer’s progress.

In the second half of fiscal 2018, major news is expected for indications in diabetes, anemia, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), and lupus in AstraZeneca’s (AZN) pipeline.

In the first quarter, AstraZeneca’s (AZN) cash outflow from operating activities rose YoY (year-over-year) to $140 million from $88 million, due to an increase in the movement of working capital and higher short-term provisions for the launch of new medicines. AstraZeneca generated $273 million from investing activities in the first quarter, compared with $146 million in Q1 2017. This change was due to lower capital expenditure and the timing of receipts on disposal of intangible assets.
AstraZeneca (AZN) has maintained its guidance for fiscal 2018. This expected growth in product sales is weighted towards the second half of the year, reflecting the impact of generic competition for Crestor in Europe and Japan and an increased revenue contribution from new medicines. AstraZeneca expects the sum of externalization revenue and other operating income and expenses to fall YoY (year-over-year).
In the first quarter, AstraZeneca’s (AZN) sales were boosted by strong product launches and newer medicines and partially offset by a decrease in Crestor sales.

AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN - news) 's immunotherapy drug Imfinzi has hit a second important goal by improving overall survival in lung cancer patients, boosting prospects for a medicine that has already got off to a promising commercial launch. Imfinzi is the first immunotherapy to be approved in this setting, giving AstraZeneca a chance to intervene relatively early in lung cancer. Analysts believe using Imfinzi in stage III lung cancer, where cancer has only spread locally, opens up a multibillion-dollar sales opportunity and the latest overall survival (OS) data should underline the drug's potential.
U.K. stocks rose sharply on Monday, scoring a record close, as traders welcomed news over the weekend that China and the U.S. reached an agreement that eases trade tensions between the world’s two largest economies. The FTSE 100 index (^FTSE) rose 1% to end at 7,859.17, taking out its previous closing high of 7,787.97, hit last Thursday.

The decision by U.S. regulators to finally approve AstraZeneca's (AZN.L) much-delayed excess potassium drug Lokelma gives the group another new medicine launch, boosting its portfolio as it strives to offset declining sales of older products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had turned down the drug, formerly known as ZS-9, two times previously, casting doubt over AstraZeneca's decision to buy its original developer ZS Pharma for $2.7 billion (2 billion pounds) in 2015. Analysts, reacting to the approval announced late on Friday, said on Monday that the label for Lokelma was modestly better than for Vifor Pharma's (VIFN.S) rival therapy Veltassa, which also treats excess potassium levels or hyperkalemia.
