Biotech Survives Market Turbulence in November
Date:12/3/2007

e myeloma. Millennium's share value did take a slight hit after reporting that it was dropping development of its MLN3897 for rheumatoid arthritis after it was shown not to be effective in Phase II clinical trial.

Also stubbing their toes were Amgen Inc. and Vertex Pharmaceuticals. Amgen reported that interim results of a Phase III study of anemia drug Aranesp as a breast cancer treatment failed to show a significant difference between patients using the drug and those in control groups. The news came too late to effect the company's share price, which fell to $53 in after-hours trading, having closed the month at $55.25, down 5% (-19% year-to-date).

Vertex Pharmaceuticals Inc's shares closed the month down 21% after safety concerns prompted its partner Merck & Co. to suspend enrollment in their Phase II clinical trial for testing the leukemia treatment MK-0457. One patient was observed with a QTc prolongation, a heart condition that results in irregular heartbeat and could result in a heart attack.
