Sept 30 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index was down 0.1% at 7,422 by 0709 GMT.

* WOODFORD: Money manager Neil Woodford's only listed fund WPCT.L said its assets fell a further 21% in value in the last three months after his separate flagship fund was frozen on June 3 because it could not meet client redemption requests. GULF MARINE SERVICES: Gulf Marine Services GMS.L reported lower adjusted first-half core earnings on Monday in delayed results, citing challenging markets.

GSK: GlaxoSmithKline plc GSK.L said its maintenance therapy for a form of ovarian cancer reduced the risk of disease progression or death by 38% in a late-stage study in cancer patients. ASTRAZENECA/MERCK : AstraZeneca Plc AZN.L and Merck & Co Inc MRK.N said on Monday their treatment for newly diagnosed advanced ovarian cancer improved progression-free survival in patients tested in a late-stage study. GOLD: Gold prices edged lower on Monday, as the dollar firmed on easing fears of an escalation in the U.S.-China trade war after a report that the United States does not currently plan to de-list Chinese companies from U.S. stock markets. OIL: Oil prices edged up on Monday after China's factories unexpectedly ramped up production in September, easing concerns about demand at the world's largest crude importer amid an ongoing trade war with the United States. The UK blue chip index closed up more than 1% on Friday, as exporters were bolstered by an ailing pound after a Bank of England policymaker hinted at an interest rate cut, while hopes of a U.S-China trade deal also lifted the mood.
