AT&T PUSHING Android “Jelly Bean” and 3 Dow Movers Driving the Market
Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE): Shionogi-ViiV Healthcare LLC announced that initial results have been received from the Phase III SINGLE, (ING114467), study of the investigational integrase inhibitor, Dolutegravir, for treatment-naive adults with HIV-1. The study demonstrated that the Dolutegravir-based regimen is superior to the single tablet regimen of Atripla because at 48 weeks, 88% of the study participants on the Dolutegravir regimen were virologically suppressed vs. 81% of participants on the single tablet regimen Atripla ( a difference of 95% CI; 7.4%). This difference, in the primary endpoint, was statistically significant. It was noted, however, that these variations in efficacy were caused by a higher rate of discontinuation from adverse effects to Atripla. The shares traded down $0.14 (0.62%) recently at $22.303.
