Below is a look at some of the headlines for companies that made news in the healthcare sector on May 15, 2014. Specialty pharma company Lipocine (NASDAQ: LPCN) is out with news on a successful Phase 1 LPCN 1107 result.

According to the company's press release, "LPCN 1107 has the potential to become the first orally bioavailable hydroxyprogesterone caproate indicated for the prevention of preterm birth."

Hydroxyprogesterone caproate is the only drug approved for prevention of recurrent pre-term birth.

The Wall Street Journal reported, "The company expects to report top-line efficacy data for the trial in the second half of 2014 with a New Drug Application ("NDA") filing with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) anticipated in the second half of 2015."


Provectus Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTCQB:PVCT)
, a development-stage oncology and dermatology biopharmaceutical company, announced today that data on its investigational agent PV-10 for intralesional (IL) treatment of locally advanced cutaneous melanoma will be featured in two presentations in the Poster Highlights Session, Melanoma/Skin Cancers, on June 2, 2014 during the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting to be held at McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. These presentations show that IL PV-10 (a) can potentially offer cancer patients control of their cutaneous symptoms and (b) elicit a systemic anti-tumor immune response that may lead to response of uninjected lesions (the “bystander effect” that has been observed in prior clinical studies of PV-10).

The first highlighted poster, presented by Sanjiv S. Agarwala, MD, of the St. Luke’s Cancer Center, based upon abstract #132320 (permanent ID 9027), is entitled “Efficacy of intralesional rose bengal in patients receiving injection in all existing melanoma in phase II study PV-10-MM-02.”
