AstraZeneca counts cost of risky drug

first_img KCS-content Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp Tags: NULL AstraZeneca counts cost of risky drug Tuesday 21 December 2010 8:26 pm whatsapp DRUGS company AstraZeneca has binned its experimental infant lung disease drug following objections from US regulators, costing the firm upwards of £286m. The company said yesterday its motavizumab drug would be discontinued, after Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advisers asked for more information on trials in June. The costs are linked to intellectual property and ongoing research, but AstraZeneca said yesterday the sum will be excluded from core financial figures and should have no impact on earnings per share for 2010. The news comes a week after AstraZeneca’s heart medicine Brilinta was also blocked in the US, though the drug has been approved in Europe, leading to questions about the firm’s risky strategy. “All pharmaceutical companies are exposed to regulatory hurdles, but at least firms like GlaxoSmithKline have experience in emerging markets and in consumer products to offset some of the risk,” said Seymour Pierce analyst Mike Mitchell. “It also shows the inability of the FDA to naturally respond to the demands and requirements of drug developments.”A spokesperson for AstraZeneca said investors are aware of the risks of a company focused on experimental drugs. “We are confident we can create value for shareholders, and are doing a lot of work around understanding the regulatory environment better,” she said.

Worried about a global recession? I’d buy these FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA today

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

I’d buy these FTSE 100 stocks in an ISA today Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Flurries of frightful economic news continue to drift in and point to a painful global recession. Some of the financial titbits to spook share investors in recent sessions include more than 35m Americans out of work, and Fed lawmakers predicting a 25% US unemployment rate by the end of the year.Stringent Covid-19-related lockdown measures have taken a huge bite out of corporate earnings. But the economic implications of the coronavirus aren’t the only threats to global growth. US-Sino trade wars, Brexit, and China’s debt crisis are just a few reasons to expect an extreme recession and a slow road to recovery.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As I say, economic data from all four corners of the world continues to confound expectations in a negative way. So it will probably pay to be prepared for an even more painful downturn than brokers currently predict. This is no reason for stock investors to stop doing what they do, though. It’s important to remember that successful share investing is a long-term endeavour and that volatility is part-and-parcel of this.A hedge against a global recessionThose who are worried about tough macroeconomic and geopolitical issues might want to buy into gold stocks, though. The yellow metal has just surged to fresh seven-year peaks above $1,750 per ounce on renewed safe-haven buying.One great precious metals share to buy today is Polymetal International. It’s dirt cheap, for starters, as it carries a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12 times and a bulky 5% corresponding dividend yield.The FTSE 100 digger’s share price has rocketed 30% over the past three months thanks to renewed gold buying. The bright outlook for bullion values, allied with the strong progress it is making on the production front encourages me to believe that Polymetal can keep growing in value, too.Another Footsie starReckitt Benckiser Group (LSE: RB) is another rock-solid Footsie pick for these troubled times.I recently explained why Unilever’s broad range of market-leading products should keep profits there on the up-and-up regardless of this economic downturn. It’s a quality that it clearly shares with Reckitt Benckiser thanks to the latter’s beloved brands like Sweetex sweeteners, Scholl footcare products, and Nurofen painkillers.In fact, the household goods maker has multiple layers that makes it such a terrific defensive pick. It produces a wide range of products across the health and home categories, protecting it from falling demand in one or two segments. Many of its products like bleach, painkillers, disinfectant, and indigestion relievers are essential goods we simply can’t do without. And Reckitt Benckiser’s geographical footprint is large, taking the sting out of particularly tough conditions in certain territories.This FTSE 100 share’s more expensive than Polymetal. It currently trades on a forward P/E ratio of 24 times. Still, Reckitt Benckiser’s secure profits outlook makes it worthy of a meaty premium in my opinion. I’d happily buy both companies in an ISA today. Royston Wild owns shares of Unilever. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Unilever.

Maori All Blacks edge the USA Eagles in exciting clash in Philadelphia

first_imgWednesday Nov 13, 2013 Maori All Blacks edge the USA Eagles in exciting clash in Philadelphia The New Zealand Maori All Blacks held off an impressive United States Eagles side on a brilliant occasion for USA rugby in Philadelphia at the weekend. The Maori All Blacks made it two from two on their North American tour, winning this one 29-19. The visitors started well as Jamison Gibson-Park scored within a few minutes and gave the impression that it would be a bit of a rout, but the USA side hung in there and mixed it up physically, and actually led 9-7 at halftime due to three penalties from the boot.Captain Tim Bateman scored early in the second before the USA again clawed their way back and were within seven points with minutes remaining, before Bateman scored again and a late Luke Katene try sealed the win for the touring Maoris.USA Number Eight Cam Dolan was a star for the homeside, scoring a try and coming close on another occasion, but the experience and guile of the visitors told.“We started slowly, but we came together and we did what we’d talked about all week,” Life University’s Dolan said. “All week we’d been saying we’d come out here and hit them. Everyone says Americans are big hitters, with football and all, and I think we proved that. We kept the possession and played a great game.”Maori All Blacks coach Colin Cooper said the win honoured the proud legacy of past teams.“They were very physical, very committed and we nearly let them in at the end, but the boys showed plenty of determination to nail the win, so I am really pleased with the overall performance.“When a group of men unite like that in front of what was an electric crowd, it was really special and a huge highlight for me personally,” he added. The USA now head across eastern europe to take on Georgia, followed by Russia a week later.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error All Blacks Related Articles 40 WEEKS AGO North vs South should be a permanent fixture… 40 WEEKS AGO Barrett could easily end up on All Blacks… 42 WEEKS AGO Future All Blacks?

The approach to the renovation of a traditional cottage in the Jizera Mountains was, from the very beginning, determined by the need to reconcile certain design requirements, the genius loci of a mountain village, and the investor’s contemporary lifestyle. The design was created around three determining elements: the shape and orientation of the building, situated on the boundary of the property; direct contact between the house and the street; and the lime tree growing in the yard, the tallest of its kind in the whole Jizera Mountains.Save this picture!© Alexandr HudečekSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Alexandr HudečekSince the house is in close contact with its surroundings, the use of a standard floor plan, situating the living space on the ground floor and the bedrooms in the attic, is a good solution, reflecting the dichotomy between sociability and openness on the one hand, and the need for intimacy and relaxation on the other. New additions replacing the original entrance and the glassmaker’s workshop (whose chimney is now used for a smokehouse with outdoor seating around it) help in structuring the outdoor spaces.Save this picture!© Alexandr HudečekThese include a hidden, south-facing terrace behind the kitchen, which offers views of the valley, and the yard between the house and the woodshed, divided into several spaces with different functions: a front garden, a bench under the lime tree, and outdoor seating around the smokehouse. The new dormer windows in the attic, inspired by the tradition of local architectural forms, frame the views of the valley and of the lime tree branches. In the future, another outdoor space will be added: a hideaway, situated between two rocks on a forested slope behind the house.Save this picture!© Alexandr HudečekSave this picture!Elevation 1Save this picture!© Alexandr HudečekThe overall appearance of the house – both indoors and outdoors – is sober, in line with the investor’s taste. The color palette ranges from dark grey used on the roof, through the greyish tones of aging wood on the façade to the simple, yet beautiful tones of the concrete and stone walls. The house has opened itself to dialogue with its surroundings, to light and to views of the majestic lime tree and the breath-taking mountain scenery.Save this picture!© Alexandr HudečekProject gallerySee allShow lessDreams-Chasing Life & Art Showroom / AD ARCHITECTURESelected ProjectsM House / Studio BrightSelected Projects Share “COPY” Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Nowodvorski, Rako, Adobe, Heatwell, Vekra, cera Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Area:  133 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project last_img read more

ARC selects Touchstone for fundraising CRM system

Touchstone will be implementing an integrated financial management and CRM system for the charity.ARC’s fundraising activities are managed both nationally and locally at regional branches and the organisation also runs charity shops across the UK.Dominic Payne, Head of Finance and Administration at ARC, said: “We required a system which would not only improve the speed and efficiency of the processing, reviewing and analysing of grant applications, but one that would also allow us to analyse our donor base and improve our marketing campaigns.”After a period of consultation, Touchstone recommended a Microsoft Great Plains financial management system to manage the accounts, integrated with a SalesLogix CRM system to manage the fundraising and grant process.ARC believes that the integrated system will help to improve the visibility and effectiveness of fundraising campaigns, giving the organisation the ability to analyse the success of a campaign and segment the donor database in order to undertake more targeted campaigns and make more informed management decisions based upon up to date accurate information. The organisation expects to be able to work more effectively with external agencies by giving them access to data through the SalesLogix system.

During an official visit by the president of the National Commission for Human Rights, Ali Mohamed Abdou, to the prison on 4 September, Okieh informed him about his predicament. Despite this plea for help, the jailed technician has still not received medical treatment. “The refusal of medical care is very worrying, especially in view of the dreadful conditions in Gabode prison, as illustrated by the recent death of a political prisoner who had been held there for only a month,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the prison authorities to respect the basic rights of this wrongfully convicted journalist.” According to information received by Reporters Without Borders, Okieh was severely beaten by criminal investigation officers in Djibouti city before being taken to the prison, sustaining serious injuries to his eye and ear.On 28 August, Mohamoud Elmi Rayaleh, a jailed political activist, died in custody despite being in good health when he was admitted to Gabode prison on 3 August.Okieh awaits his release in one month, on 19 October.Djibouti is ranked 167th of 179 countries in the 2013 World Press Freedom Index.More about freedom if information in Djibouti:• The Okieh case• The Daher Ahmed Farah casePhoto: Maydaneh Abdallah Okieh center_img December 9, 2020 Find out more La Voix de Djibouti is not run by “opposition illiterates,” RSF says News News RSF_en August 4, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts DjiboutiAfrica Newslast_img read more
