According to the Company, the EPIC trial was a randomized, two-arm, multicenter trial that sought to compare the efficacy of ponatinib with that of imatinib in adult patients with newly diagnosed CML in the chronic phase. According to Ariad, the Company and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have mutually agreed to terminate the trial due to arterial thrombotic events that were observed in patients treated with Iclusig. The Company added that the trial termination decision was made in the interest of patient safety based on a recent assessment of data in the clinical trial.

BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. Research Report
On October 20, 2013, BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. (BioMarin) announced that the Company is presenting five data presentations on its BMN 673 at the 2013 AACR-NCI-EORTC International Conference on Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics in Boston, being held from October 19 to October 23, 2013. BioMarin informed that the research as reported on the poster concluded that BMN 673 was approximately 100-fold more potent than olaparib and rucaparib at trapping PARP, making it the most potent clinical PARP inhibitor to date with the highest efficiency at trapping PARP-DNA complexes. "We believe PARP trapping seen with BMN 673 is differentiating because BMN 673 appears to be significantly more lethal to cancer cells than olaparib and rucaparib, and PARP trapping may explain why BMN 673 shows far greater potency," said Hank Fuchs, M.D., Chief Medical Officer at BioMarin. "We're looking forward to further studies in gBRCA metastatic breast cancer patients to confirm and extend the early clinical results of the compound."
