“2e has been on an exhilarating growth trajectory for the past several years,” 2e CEO Ross Toohey said. “We chose Fishawack over a host of other potential investors because their global footprint, expansive capabilities, and entrepreneurial culture represented the greatest advantage for our employees and clients. This is truly the next evolutionary leap for 2e and the brands we serve.”

Fishawack is a global healthcare communications group with offices in London, Oxford, Brighton and Manchester, UK, as well as Philadelphia, New York, and San Diego, USA; 2e adds to the group’s US footprint. The firm’s core strengths in medical communications, strategic consulting, and creative, fits nicely with 2e’s expertise in strategy, creative, digital marketing, sales training, and internal communications. With this breadth of capabilities, Fishawack and 2e can now support clients throughout the entire product development, launch, and growth lifecycle. With the 2e partnership, the Fishawack Group now boasts over 750 employees worldwide, making it among the largest independent healthcare agencies globally.

“Fishawack is one of the new generation of leaders in healthcare communications. We’re challenging the major agency networks by fostering a uniquely collaborative culture across our agency collective,” Fishawack CEO Oliver Dennis said. “We offer the capabilities, scale, and geographical coverage to offer healthcare brands a fresh, new type of partnership value. We’re excited about 2e’s portfolio, capabilities, and brilliant people. Ross has built a great entrepreneurial culture, and we can’t wait to work with the 2e team.”

This partnership is particularly notable for 2e because it comes on the heels of the agency’s appointment to the MM&M Top 100 Healthcare Agencies worldwide, as well as 2e’s three consecutive victories (2015, 2016, 2017) as MM&M “Healthcare Agency of the Year.” Between 2e and sister agencies Dudnyk, Carling Communications, Blue Latitude Health, and Healthcircle, the Fishawack Group is among the most award winning in the field of healthcare marketing.

“We’re very deliberate about the agencies we invest in,” Fishawack Group President Gail Flockhart said. “Clients demand seamlessly blended capabilities, so it’s important that we build collaborative allegiances across the Fishawack Group. It’s best for our clients and our people. 2e brings executive training and organisational optimisation capabilities to the group.”

Advisors to Fishawack included KPMG, Addleshaw Goddard LLP, and financial backers LDC and LGT Capital Partners. 2e’s advisors included Results International, Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC, and Clifton Larson Allen.

Takeda Announces Compelling Data from the Phase 2 Trial of Pevonedistat Plus Azacitidine in Patients with Higher-Risk MDS29.5.2020 14:00:00 CESTPress release

Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (TSE:4502/NYSE:TAK) today announced the results of the Phase 2 Pevonedistat-2001 trial will be presented during oral sessions at the virtual 56thAmerican Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting and the virtual 25thEuropean Hematology Association (EHA) Annual Meeting.

These results show that the combination of pevonedistat and azacitidine is a highly active, promising therapeutic approach and suggest benefit in the HR-MDS subgroup across multiple clinically meaningful endpoints, including overall survival (OS), event-free survival (EFS), complete remission (CR) and transfusion independence, with a safety profile similar to azacitidine alone. The Pevonedistat-2001 trial was designed as a proof-of-concept study in patients with HR-MDS, higher-risk chronic myelomonocytic leukemi
