Gilead Sciences, Inc. Research Report
On December 8, 2013, Gilead Sciences, Inc. (Gilead) announced the results of a Phase 2 study (Study 101-09) evaluating idelalisib (an investigational oral inhibitor of PI3K delta) for the treatment of patients with indolent non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (iNHL), which is refractory (non-responsive) to rituximab and to alkylating-agent-containing chemotherapy. Gilead informed that in the study, single-agent treatment with idelalisib achieved an overall response rate of 57% with a median duration of response of 12.5 months. Gilead further informed that of the 71 patients who responded to therapy, seven (6%) achieved a complete response, 63 (50%) had a partial response and one (1%) had a minor response. Ajay Gopal, M.D., Associate Professor, University of Washington School of Medicine and Associate Member, Clinical Research Division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington, said, "It has been more than ten years since a treatment with a novel mechanism of action has been approved for indolent NHL, underscoring the medical need for new treatments for patients who are no longer responsive to currently available therapies." Dr. Gopal added, "The overall response rate and durability of response observed in this study suggest that idelalisib may become a valuable new therapy for iNHL patients who have very limited treatment options."

Cardiovascular Systems Inc. Research Report
On December 3, 2013, Cardiovascular Systems Inc. (CSI) announced that the Company's Diamondback 360 Coronary Orbital Atherectomy System (OAS) is being used by physicians across the country to treat coronary artery disease. CSI reported that this has followed the Company's recent PMA (premarket approval application) approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the device as a treatment for severely calcified coronary arteries. David L. Martin, CSI's President and CEO, said, "Significant arterial calcium is present in nearly 40 percent of patients undergoing a percutaneous coronary intervention, and contributes to poor outcomes and higher treatment costs in coronary interventions when traditional therapies are used-including a substantially higher occurrence of death and major adverse cardiac events." Martin added, "Severe coronary arterial calcium is a vastly underestimated problem in medicine, with limited treatment options. Our Diamondback 360 coronary system provides for initial therapeutic intervention for this complex disease and we are excited about its growing use, as illustrated by the early adoption and ongoing cases being performed at three U.S. hospitals by prominent physicians. As we continue our controlled product rollout, we expect to see this list of hospitals and prominent physicians expand nationally."
