LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / April 21, 2017 / Active Wall St. blog coverage looks at the headline from AbbVie Inc. (NYSE: ABBV) as the Company announced on April 20, 2017, that its Phase 3 EXPEDITION-1 study demonstrated that 99% of chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infected patients achieved sustained virologic response at 12 weeks' post-treatment (SVR12) with its investigational, pan-genotypic regimen of glecaprevir/pibrentasvir (G/P). Register with us now for your free membership and blog access at: http://www.activewallst.com/register/. One of AbbVie's competitors within the Drug Manufacturers - Major space, Impax Laboratories, Inc. (NASDAQ: IPXL), announced on April 06, 2017, that it will release its Q1 2017 financial results on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, prior to the open of the US financial markets. The Company will host a conference call and live webcast with the investment community at 8:30 a.m., ET on May 10, 2017. AWS will be initiating a research report on Impax Labs in the coming days. Today, AWS is promoting its blog coverage on ABBV; touching on IPXL. Get all of our free blog coverage and more by clicking on the link below: http://www.activewallst.com/register/. AbbVie's EXPEDITION-1 is a single arm, multicenter, open-label study evaluating the efficacy and safety of 12 weeks of G/P in adults with GT1, 2, 4, 5 or 6 chronic HCV infection and compensated cirrhosis (Child-Pugh A) in 146 patients, including those new to treatment or had prior treatment experience with IFN-based treatments. The primary endpoint was the percentage of patients achieving SVR12. SVR12 was achieved by 145/146 patients, with one GT1a-infected patient experiencing relapse. These high SVR12 rates were seen following 12 weeks of G/P treatment without ribavirin. Patients with specific virus strains associated with resistance or with a high quantity of the virus in their bloodstream before treatment initiation were not excluded from the study. "We have already seen great progress in the treatment of HCV patients with compensated cirrhosis. However, treatment challenges remain related to the use of ribavirin," said Xavier Forns, M.D., head of hepatitis unit, Hospital Clinic de Barcelona, Spain, "The positive findings from the EXPEDITION-1 study, along with previously reported data, show that G/P has the potential to become a ribavirin-free treatment for patients with compensated cirrhosis across these genotypes." In the EXPEDITION-1 study, the majority of adverse events (AEs) were mild and no patients discontinued treatment due to an AE. The most common AEs were fatigue and headache. No patients experienced ALT elevations equal to or above Grade 3. Of the 11 patients who experienced serious AEs, none were considered treatment-related. Approximately 130 to 150 million people worldwide are living with chronic HCV, for whom the risk of cirrhosis of the liver is between 15-30% within 20 years. Treatment guidelines around the world recommend that all patients with cirrhosis should be considered for treatment, yet the treatment of specific patients with HCV and compensated cirrhosis is still challenging. AbbVie's glecaprevir/pibrentasvir (G/P) is an investigational, pan-genotypic regimen being evaluated as a potential cure in 8 weeks for HCV patients without cirrhosis and who are new to treatment with direct-acting antivirals (DAA), which make up the majority of HCV patients. AbbVie's G/P is a once-daily regimen that combines two distinct antiviral agents. G/P is a fixed-dose combination of glecaprevir (300mg), an NS3/4A protease inhibitor, and pibrentasvir (120mg), an NS5A inhibitor, dosed once-daily as three oral tablets. AbbVie is also studying G/P in patients with specific treatment challenges, such as genotype 3, patients who were not cured with previous DAA treatment and those with CKD, including patients on dialysis. Authorization applications for G/P are currently under review by regulatory authorities around the world. G/P has been granted accelerated assessment by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and priority review designations by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW). On Thursday, April 20, 2017, the stock closed the trading session at $63.78, slightly up 0.52% from its previous closing price of $63.45. A total volume of 5.70 million shares have exchanged hands. AbbVie's stock price advanced 4.94% in the last three months, 5.71% in the past six months, and 9.53% in the previous twelve months. Furthermore, since the start of the year, shares of the Company have gained 3.90%. The stock is trading at a PE ratio of 17.47 and has a dividend yield of 4.01%.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA™), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, has released a new research report titled “Next-Generation IT Service Management: Changing the Future of IT,” based on criteria defined by Dennis Drogseth, vice president of research at EMA. While IT service management (ITSM) has too often been viewed by the industry as an area of reactive management with fading process efficiencies and legacy concerns, this new study reveals that, in many organizations, ITSM is becoming a hub of innovation. ITSM is shown to unify IT across its many silos, promote and measure IT operational efficiencies, and consolidate insights critical for IT-to-business planning. This evolution, however, is not without its obstacles and challenges, nor is it taking place in all IT organizations. In this report, ITSM is examined from various perspectives, including organizational role of respondents, company size and vertical, geographical differences, and success-related patterns of behavior. Targeted at IT executives and technical adopters across not only ITSM teams but also operations, development and IT asset management (ITAM) teams, this report shows what is really occurring with ITSM initiatives in both North America and Europe and provides a blueprint for how best to accelerate forward into a next-generation status. “The catalytic role of ITSM teams both across IT, and in support of enterprise efficiencies, is still largely misunderstood by many in the industry,” said Drogseth. “This research spotlights ITSM team centricity in everything from IT asset management and enterprise process automation, to increasing support for agile and DevOps initiatives, integrated IT operations, and being a center for IT governance overall—just to name a few examples. This extended outreach means reassessing ITSM in terms of relevant stakeholders, processes, best practices and needed technologies, all of which is examined in our report.” A few of the key data points from this survey are: A detailed analysis of the research findings are available in the report, "Next-Generation IT Service Management: Changing the Future of IT." Key highlights from the research are available in the “Next-Generation IT Service Management: Changing the Future of IT” webinar.

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EasyVista Inc., a leading provider of service management for IT organizations, announced that key findings from EMA’s Next Generation IT Service Management: Changing the Future of IT report (co-sponsored by EasyVista) mirrors EasyVista’s own belief that the service desk is assuming an increasingly strategic role in the enterprise. It also supports EasyVista’s thesis that excellent user experience and simple, intuitive self-service are essential to achieving wide adoption among users. EMA, a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, surveyed 264 companies across North America and Europe on a range of subjects related to ITSM. They found that the industry is breaking away from its reputation as outdated, reactive and inefficient to become a focal point for innovation. “In many organizations, ITSM is becoming a hub of innovation unifying IT across its many silos. ITSM promotes and measures IT efficiencies, consolidating insights critical for IT-to-business planning—a must for digital transformation and IT more broadly,” said Dennis Drogseth, Vice President of EMA and author of the research. “We’re excited to see EMA’s validation of what we are also seeing in the market,” said Jamal Labed, COO of EasyVista. “There is a palpable shift in the way companies view the role of ITSM. The service desk has expanded well beyond traditional IT support to become a destination for all kinds of services, many of which are based entirely on self-service. EasyVista customers are perfectly positioned to transform their service desk into a center of innovation.” Many of EMA’s research findings pointed to end user experience being a top priority. In particular: “The number of responses to varied questions that all pointed to user experience as the Holy Grail was striking,” said Drogseth. “While improving end user experience received the most responses as the strategic priority, the combined choice of mobility, self-service and intelligent bots—all core to user experience—appeared equally high on priorities. Furthermore, social IT, another core function enabling user experience, was listed as the most important functional capability by respondents.” “User experience is not simply about making things easy, it’s about creating an end-to-end experience that resembles what users have grown accustomed to in their lives outside of work—an experience that is second nature and requires no training,” said Labed. “This isn’t, however, going to be solved with just one technology. Instead, a mixture of support for mobility, social collaboration, intelligent bots and self-service is required to deliver the seamless user experience expected by today’s business users.” To download EMA’s report, please click here. EasyVista simplifies IT Service Management by making it easy to deliver and easy to use for today’s enterprise. EasyVista’s service management platform was created to help companies automate and personalize service delivery to improve IT efficiency and increase staff productivity.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced it will host a webinar titled “From Bare Metal to Public Cloud and Containers - 5 Best Practices for Monitoring Modern Infrastructures,” featuring Torsten Volk, managing research director of hybrid cloud, software defined infrastructure and machine learning at EMA, and Umair Khan, product marketing manager at CA Technologies. DevOps, containers, public cloud and hyperconverged composable infrastructure are popular examples of new IT paradigms and technologies today, and there is no reason to believe that the pace of technology change will slow down in the future. While all of these technologies fuel innovation, they also increase complexity and often lead to the adoption of siloed and proprietary management and monitoring tools. EMA research shows that organizations suffer from this lack of unified monitoring solutions, which makes proactive maintenance more difficult and root cause analysis take longer as even advanced analytics solutions rely on a unified stream of comprehensive operations data to work effectively. To help organizations stay ahead of the curve, Volk and Khan will reveal the five most important best practices to monitor a hybrid infrastructure, as well as: Those who attend will receive a free copy of this new report.
