    Many people are seeking for stability in this unstable crypto space and A lot of people are wondering if now is a good time to buy because of where the price is at right now . I'd say it's wrong to just sit back hold and wait maybe incur some losses along the line , that's a wrong mindset for an investor because as an investor finding ways to always increase and stack up more coins thereby making profits should be the way of life that being said , the market is still all about BTC at the moment and I'll advise current investors and newbies to take advantage of the Mr. Steve program , an establishment that handles people who lack understanding on how maneuver the crypto space , to help them recover loss from the crash and also accumulate more positive returns , with their program i went from having 1.4btc to 7btc in just 9 weeks.

    Why does it show that annual dividend for NYSE ticker is only a 2.079$ when european is a lot of higher?
  • R
    Any thoughts? I'm holding but haven't read anything that gives me pause?
  • C
    Big pharma stocks not moving on this big up day...why because Socialist are about to control prices, ending American leading research on new and exciting disease cures. Hope any of you voting for this won't need what could have been under a capitalist system! That day will come your friends.

    Looks like NVS is making another run at 100. Hopefully, the 3rd time is the charm.

    NVS "Novartis’ (NYSE:NVS) recent uptick in trading has piggybacked off momentum in cancer stocks. This week, the company reported news of its own after gaining FDA Orphan Drug Designation for its NIS793. This drug is being studied in pancreatic cancer. The ODD was granted for NIS793 combined with the current standard of care in patients."

    Looks like Novartis will owe 9 figures in royalties to RGNX for a very long time with approval of Zolgensma.At 1.7 billion market cap of RGNX with its 450 million in cash and 0 debt, it would be much cheaper to buy RGNX as it also owns a 100 AAV gene library which has a private market value of $6 billion USD

    Biggest winner is the babies. Then biggest winner is RGNX = Regenex bio which gets 9-13 % royalties on Zolgensma which makes it 9 figures on royalties or $6-7 eps in 24 months. AT RGNX $48 it has $450 million in cach and 0 debt and sells at book value. It owns the $6 billion private market value 100 AAV gene platform which is used by every gene therapy drug to make it work as a gene vector. RGNX worth over $155+ a share and is involved in ALS= Lou Gehrigs disease and Rett syndrome and SMA type 1 and Sma type 2 with Novartis.

    The stock will climb into the 90's next week. I will add on to my position on Tuesday. Very impressive week for NVS. Deep pipeline makes NVS a stock with a lot price appreciation for years to come.
  • S
    have! Is going on with NVS? Why can't we ever get past the 92 hurdle? I am tempted to dump it and replace with one that moves but it will probably soar as soon as I sell it.

    FDA Accepts AveXis’ BLA for SMA Drug Zolgensma Under Priority Review
    MDA STAFF 12/03/2018
    Today, Novartis, the parent company of AveXis Inc., announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted the company’s Biologics License Application (BLA) under Priority Review for Zolgensma (formerly known as AVXS-101), a gene therapy for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) type 1. Priority Review status requires the FDA to review the application and make a decision on whether to approve Zolgensma within six months (the typical review period is 10 months). An anticipated decision is expected in May 2019.

    Zolgensma is a gene therapy that targets the root cause of SMA by delivering a gene to replace the missing or mutated survival of the motor neuron 1 (SMN1) gene. The therapy is a one-time infusion. SMA is a genetic disease affecting the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement. Infants with SMA type 1 typically do not survive more than two years.

    Treatment with the therapy in a Phase 1 clinical trial was associated with an increased survival rate compared to the normal course of the disease and the achievement and maintenance of motor milestones that infants with SMA type 1 normally would not be expected to achieve. In the START trial, all 15 patients infused with Zolgensma — three with low dose, 12 with high dose — were alive and event-free at 24 months, compared to 8 percent in a natural history study. An “event” was defined as either death, or at least 16 hours per day of required ventilation support for breathing for 14 consecutive days in the absence of acute reversible illness or surgery. At 24 months, 11 of the 12 high-dose patients could keep their head erect for more than three seconds and sit without support for more than five seconds, 10 patients were able to sit without support for more than 10 seconds, 9 patients were able to sit without support for more than 30 seconds and two patients were able to stand and walk alone without assistance.

    The trial also showed meaningful respiratory results. Of the 10 patients who were not using non-invasive ventilation (NIV) at the start of the trial, seven of them remained NIV-free after 24 months. More importantly, all patients, whether ventilated or not, survived respiratory hospitalizations without tracheostomy or permanent ventilation.

    The most commonly observed side effect of Zolgensma was elevated liver enzymes.

    This announcement underscores the importance of newborn screening to diagnose SMA before babies are symptomatic so they can be treated as early as possible. With the news earlier in the year of SMA being added to the national Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP), this latest announcement makes it even more important for states to add SMA to their respective newborn screening panels to find babies who may benefit from approved therapies or be eligible to participate in clinical trials.

    Zolgensma is currently in Phase 3 clinical trials for SMA type 1 and is also being tested in a Phase 1 trial for SMA type 2. Additionally, Zolgensma is being tested in a Phase 3 trial for pre-symptomatic newborns diagnosed with SMA types 1, 2 and 3.

    $AMRN , JT presentation today is super strong BP wake up and buyout this company even at $50B looks cheap going forward $PFE $AMGN. $NVS. $GSK spend the money it’s worth it, ADA Standard of Care , Diabetes community is a very lucrative big market 90 million of them according to JT , wow that alone counts in BILLIONS, JT always says we’re not competing in Statins $500B markets but Triglycerides and Cholesterol is entangled now that will take many BILLIONS from that, Atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Cancers future collaborators are looking at that too, AMRN is severely undervalued here and should be close to $100/Shares, A game changer just like $BYND and $UBER in each industry

    Imagine Pfizer sales force selling Vascepa’s right now the $2B to $4B sales easily achieved (above 500 Triglycerides) some off label use too, Now the sNDA as we know it is 20X bigger (150 to 500) US alone, new report is China’s 185M People have very high Triglycerides, this one is massive going forward, $NVS or $PFE will have epic buyout

    AveXis presented robust data at AAN demonstrating efficacy of Zolgensma® in broad spectrum of spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) patients
    May 05, 2019
    Interim data reported for the first time from STRONG in SMA Type 2 showed rapid motor function gains and milestone achievements with intrathecal Zolgensma (onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi; AVXS-101)

    New interim data from STR1VE in SMA Type 1 continued to show prolonged event-free survival, increases in motor function and significant milestone achievement consistent with Phase 1 START trial

    Interim data reported for the first time from SPR1NT in pre-symptomatic SMA showed age-appropriate motor milestone achievement
    Basel, May 5, 2019 - AveXis, a Novartis company, today announced interim data from ongoing trials of the investigational product Zolgensma® (onasemnogene abeparvovec-xioi; AVXS-101)1 that showed positive results across a broad spectrum of patients with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). These included the first presentation of data from the Phase 1 STRONG trial, which showed motor function gains and milestone achievements in patients with SMA Type 2 via intrathecal (IT) delivery; new data from the Phase 3 STR1VE trial, which continued to show prolonged event-free survival, increases in motor function and significant milestone achievement consistent with the Phase 1 START trial; and the first presentation of data from the Phase 3 SPR1NT trial, which showed motor milestone achievement consistent with normal development in SMA patients treated pre-symptomatically. These data were presented during the 2019 American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting.

    "With just a single, one-time dose, we are seeing Zolgensma provide prolonged survival, rapid motor function improvement and milestone achievements that patients never experience if their disease is left untreated," said David Lennon, President of AveXis. "These robust data presented at AAN represent a growing body of evidence that support the use of Zolgensma as a potential foundational therapy for the treatment of SMA across a variety of populations."

    Phase 1 STRONG Data as of March 8, 2019
    STRONG is a Phase 1, open-label, dose-comparison, multi-center trial designed to evaluate the safety and tolerability of one-time IT administration of Zolgensma in patients with SMA Type 2 who have three copies of the SMN2 gene, and who are able to sit but cannot stand or walk at the time of study entry. Patients were stratified into two groups based on age at time of dosing: patients who are >=6 months but <24 months, and patients who are >=24 months but <60 months. The primary efficacy outcome for patients who were >=6 to <24 months is the ability to stand without support >=3 seconds; the primary efficacy outcome for patients who were >=24 to >60 months is change in Hammersmith Functional Motor Scale-Expanded (HFMSE) score from baseline. Three dosing strengths are being evaluated. Only 3/34 (8.8 percent) patients were excluded due to elevated AAV9 antibodies.

    Patients in the STRONG study showed improvement in motor function, with 19 patients (12/12 dosed at >=24 to <60 months and 7 who were dosed at >=6 to <24 months who then became old enough to be evaluated on the HSMSE) having a mean 4.2-point increase from baseline in HFMSE as of their most recent study visit (5-12 months post-treatment). Half of the patients (6/12) who were >=24 months at dosing experienced a >=3-point improvement from baseline in HFMSE by one-month post dosing.
    Since dosing, 22 motor milestones in 10 patients have been achieved according to the Bayley-III Gross Motor Milestone Scale across the Dose A and Dose B treatment groups, including two patients who gained the ability to stand independently, one of whom went on to walk alone in the younger group, and one additional patient who gained the ability to walk with assistance in the older group. The median duration of follow-up was 6.5 months. Efficacy data from Dose C are not presented because enrollment is not complete.

    All patients (n=30) were alive. There were two serious treatment-related adverse events. Both were of transaminase elevation. The frequency of patients with adverse events of transaminase elevation appeared to be lower than that seen with intravenous (IV) administration of Zolgensma.

    "With an average of just over six months of data available for these Type 2 patients following treatment with Zolgensma, we are pleased to see they are achieving motor milestones, including the ability to stand and walk," said Olga Santiago, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of AveXis. "Based on these early promising data, we plan to approach regulators to define the path to registration for intrathecal administration of Zolgensma."

    This is why the selloff today: NEW YORK, Aug 6 (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Tuesday that some data from early testing of Novartis’ more than $2 million gene therapy Zolgensma was manipulated, but the agency believes the treatment should remain on the market.

    The FDA said it is carefully assessing the situation. It said the manipulation involves the accuracy of certain data from product testing performed in animals, which was used by the manufacturer to support the development of its production process.
