The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rebuffed a bid by Bristol Myers Squibb Co’s Juno Therapeutics Inc to reinstate a $1.2 billion award it won in its patent fight with Gilead Sciences Inc subsidiary Kite Pharma Inc over a lymphoma drug.

Arcus Biosciences and its collaboration partner Gilead Sciences announced during Arcus’ third-quarter report that the company had modified its ARC-10 Phase III trial.

Gilead Sciences Inc. on Thursday posted a higher-than-expected third-quarter profit on the back of strong demand for its HIV and cancer drugs, which helped offset lower sales of its COVID-19 antiviral drug and acquisition expenses.

The United States sent Gilead Sciences’ remdesivir and Mapp Biopharmaceutical Inc.’s experimental Ebola antibody drug MBP134 to Uganda last week to help safeguard healthcare workers responding to an outbreak that has infected 60 people and killed 44, U.S. government sources told Reuters.

The top pharma companies in 2021 continued to be engaged in creating vaccines and therapeutics, and the investments in R&D led to greater revenue and earnings.

It might seem like luck for a company to trip over a multi-billion dollar COVID treatment already lurking in its pipeline – but perhaps not so much when that company, Gilead, has been at the leading edge of antiviral R&D for decades.

Weeks after AstraZeneca and Daiichi Sankyo were able to move the bar in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer with Enhertu, Gilead Sciences is answering that challenge with Trodelvy.

While the economy expands and contracts, the biopharma industry follows, and many life science companies are announcing both layoffs and expansions.

Drugmaker Gilead Sciences plans to announce on Tuesday that it will provide up to $5 million in grants to help a coalition of LGBTQ+ and human rights advocacy groups craft public health responses to monkeypox outbreaks, the company said.

Gilead Sciences shared what seemed to be good news regarding Trodelvy in HR+/HER2- breast cancer at the 2022 American Society of Clinical Oncology’s annual meeting, but a modest survival advantage left some wondering about the clinical significance.
