Australian shares closed lower on Wednesday, dragged down by the healthcare sector, as a record surge in COVID-19 cases in the country dented investor sentiment. Australia recorded 501 new coronavirus infections in the past 24 hours, its highest since the epidemic took hold in March, with Victoria state, of which Melbourne is the capital, accounting for almost 97% of the new cases. "The fact that metro Melbourne, which is about 5 million people, has already been in a lockdown for the last couple of weeks and still not seeing a drop in cases is probably something to be a little concerned about," said Steven Daghlian, market analyst at CommSec.

Global biotherapeutics leader CSL Behring announced today that it has agreed to acquire Vitaeris Inc., a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the phase III development of clazakizumab, an anti-interleukin-6 (IL-6) monoclonal antibody (MAB), for the potential treatment of chronic active antibody-mediated rejection (AMR), the leading cause of long-term rejection in kidney transplant recipients. The companies entered into a strategic partnership in 2017 to expedite the development of clazakizumab with the option for CSL Behring to acquire Vitaeris, along with this important product candidate. With this acquisition, clazakizumab joins CSL842 and CSL964 as part of CSL Behring's portfolio of products in late-stage development to address significant unmet needs in the transplant community.
CSL Behring, a global biotherapeutics leader, today announced results of a Phase 2 clinical trial for garadacimab (previously known as CSL312), an investigational novel Factor XIIa-inhibitory monoclonal antibody (FXIIa mAb) in development as a preventive treatment in hereditary angioedema (HAE). The data, presented at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Digital Congress 2020, showed that the study met its primary endpoint, demonstrating reduced number of attacks compared to placebo in patients with HAE. Mean percentage reductions were 88.68%, 98.94%, and 90.50% in three garadacimab groups - 75, 200, and 600 mg subcutaneous (SC) - versus placebo. The study also showed garadacimab to be well-tolerated. HAE is a rare, genetic and potentially life-threatening condition that causes painful, debilitating and unpredictable episodes of swelling of the abdomen, larynx, face and extremities, among other areas of the body. Garadacimab inhibits the plasma protein, FXIIa. FXIIa initiates the cascade of events that lead to edema formation. By targeting FXIIa, garadacimab can prevent the initiation of this cascade.
