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.

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.

ARC selects Touchstone for fundraising CRM system 73 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 74 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Medical research charity Arthritis Research Campaign (ARC) has selected IT services group Touchstone to improve IT support for fundraising across the organisation.ARC expects the agency to help achieve its aim of increasing net fundraising income by 10% per annum. 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 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 News
