GERON PROMISING NEWS POSE NO THREAT TO INCYTE

  Thursday, November 07, 2013

Good news has come from Geron (GERN) - a firm we liked and mentioned several times as a reference where researchers and firms involved in embryonic stem cells resorted to when they faced problems and needed help. Although Geron had an excellent research and numerous patents covering many aspects of embryonic stem cells, the firm decided to dispose of its stem cell program and pursue its drug development program, which among various approaches, most of it revolve around the telomere, which is tips the ends of the chromosomes.    More...

IMMUNOGEN: OPINIONS ARE BEING EXPRESSED. HERE IS OUR VIEW

  Tuesday, November 05, 2013

Stopping Phase 2 trial of its ADC product IMGN901 on patients with non-small-cell lung cancer is  most probably a temporary setback, which we believe would have no negative long-term impact on ImmunoGen’s (IMGN) success and growth. The failure of the drug has nothing to do with ImmunoGen’s TAP technology that has been validated through the approval of HER2 positive breast cancer ADC product Kadcyla® and through many years of experimentation.  More...

AGENUS (AGEN) has extraordinary news. A recent analysis from a Phase 2 trial in patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) treated with Prophage Series G-100 (HSPPC-96) in combination with the current standard of care (radiation and temozolomide) showed an almost 18 month median progression free survival (PFS), which represents a 160% increase versus current standard of care alone. The results confirm continuation of the positive trends from the Phase 2 HSPPC-96 newly diagnosed GBM trial first reported at the 81st American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) Annual Scientific Meeting in May 2013. More...

ARIAD: SUCCUMBING TEMPORARILY TO EXTRAORDINARY PRESSURE

  Friday, August 09, 2013

Ariad’s (ARIA) conference call and the discussions that followed confirmed our optimistic projections regarding Ariad’s leukemia drug Iclusig (ponatinib) sales. The announced exciting news, while is being met with a stock selloff, it cemented our conviction that Iclusig possesses all the features of a blockbuster and the criteria of growth, which are built through its efficacy derived from its mode of action. Iclusig has offered the oncology community a new option for hope in patients who, for a reason or another, cannot use the conventional first line treatments and those whose leukemia, or recurrent leukemia stopped responding to the currently used treatments. Although Iclusig is not officially designated a breakthrough, it is viewed as indispensable for the various kinds of leukemia it has been granted approval for, which is the main reason behind FDA granting it early approval.   More...

Each and every time investors believed Regeneron (REGN) highest high value has been reached, like a magician, it pulled another chicken out of its long black hat and made it lay another golden egg.
