ViiV Healthcare says FDA has approved its two-drug HIV regimen, in first such instance
ViiV Healthcare, which is majority-owned by GlaxoSmithKline and has Pfizer Inc. and Shionogi as shareholders, said on Tuesday that the Food and Drug Administration has approved its two-drug HIV regimen. The therapy, Juluca, is the first such HIV drug composed of just two drugs -- dolutegravir and rilpivirine, both of which have been previously approved -- while other HIV regimens are typically composed of at least three drugs. This advancement could make the regimen more tolerable for the patient, according to Dr. Debra Birnkrant, director of the Division of Antiviral Products in the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. Juluca is approved for individuals with HIV-1 who have been stable on a regimen for at least half a year, have no history of treatment failure and no known resistance to Juluca's individual components, ViiV said. GlaxoSmithKline shares declined 0.8% in Tuesday trade; shares have dropped nearly 10% over the last three months, compared with a 7% rise in the S&P 500 and a nearly 8% rise in the Dow Jones Industrial Average .Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Health care sector falls as likelihood of ACA repeal rises; UnitedHealth's stock leads Dow losers
The health care sector traded broadly lower Tuesday, amid concerns over the potential effects of the Graham-Cassidy bill, which some analysts say is becoming increasingly likely to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. The SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF shed 0.9% in afternoon trade, with 56 of its 62 components trading lower. Among the XLV's most heavily-weighted components, UnitedHealth Group's stock dropped 1.8% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's decliners. The price decline of $3.61 was shaving 25 points off the Dow, which was up 44 points. Analyst Ana Gupte at Leerink Research said the bill could lead to "greater earnings downside in the near term than previous House and Senate bills for ACA-levered stocks." Among companies that Gupte said are at particular risk, shares of Centene Corp. slumped 4.6% and Molina Healthcare Inc. gave up 6.1%. Elsewhere, shares of Aetna Inc. fell 3.4%, Humana Inc. slid 3.2%, Cigna Corp. declined 1.9% and Anthem Inc. was down 2.0%. Gupte said diversified managed care organizations (MCOs) like Humana and Cigna are more defensive, though exposure should be manageable for UnitedHealth, Aetna and Anthem. The XLV has gained 4.3% over the past three months, while the S&P 500 has tacked on 2.2%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
