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.

They predict that with austerity cuts, unemployment growth and the possibility of interest rate rises at the end of this year, the UK could see a rise in repossessions.“An economic shock to borrowers in severe arrears could result in a spike in new repossession cases,” said the report. center_img Monday 31 January 2011 9:06 pm UK subprime mortgages vulnerable to shocks whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofChicken Bao: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Tags: NULLlast_img read more

The median home price fell 3.7 per cent from a year-ago to $158,800 (£98,217), the lowest since April 2002.Barclays Capital economist Michael Gapen in New York said it had expected unit sales to rise to a 5.25 million-unit rate in January and the analyst consensus was for a 5.22 million-unit rate.“The recent activity provides further evidence that the housing market has stabilised,” he said. “We expect the recent improvement in home sales to persist, albeit at a more moderate pace than observed in the second half of 2010. We see sales as supported by continued improvements in labour market conditions, but constrained by tight credit standards and higher mortgage rates.”The NAR has been accused of over-counting existing home sales. The Wall Street Journal on Monday quoted California real estate analysis firm, CoreLogic, as saying the NAR could have overstated home sales by as much as 20 per cent. NAR dismissed the claim and chief economist Lawrence Yun told reporters: “I would be highly surprised if it was 20 per cent.” The NAR also revised the sales rates for the past three years, which showed 2010 sales little changed.

Why Fujitsu’s broadband plan will probably fail

first_img whatsapp GEEK [email protected]_DinneenFujitsu is planning to roll out superfast broadband to 5m rural homes. That’s good, right? Broadband for you, broadband for me, broadband for everybody. We can all meet in a chat-room and discuss how great it is that someone in a bothy in rural Aberdeenshire can download the back-catalogue of My Family instead of being forced to stare interminably into the fire like a rabbit caught in the headlights of modern civilisation.While Fujitsu is playing its cards very close to its chest in terms of where it will build this infrastructure, and what “rural” even really means, it seems it will be targeting the “final third” of the UK left after BT connects the rest of the country by 2015. We’re talking some seriously isolated areas here; Welsh valleys and Cumbrian mountainsides. And all Fujitsu says it needs to drag these people kicking and screaming from their Kafkaesque nightmare is £500m of the £830m of government money earmarked for the roll out of next generation internet.Being a selfish, navel-gazing city dweller, the argument that we shouldn’t be spending quite so much to connect some of these places holds some sway. Small and medium-sized towns, the places worst hit by the recession, need the investment that follows broadband roll-out more desperately than just about anyone – but should we really be paying for the next generation internet of someone choosing to live in the rolling hills of Northumbria? These people are greeted every morning by crisp clean air and ride to work through fields of daisies on the backs of wild horses, while city dwellers are forced to wade face deep through a fetid sea of human slurry. Surely we should at least be able to dazzle them with our technology like Neanderthal man waving a flaming torch at an angry ape?But this is largely redundant when you consider it looks unlikely that Fujitsu will be able to fund its ambitious plans. Firstly, it would need to win almost all of the public money, which will be released in small chunks for local governments to bid for and despite going head-to-head with BT. Fujitsu has admitted that if public funding falls below a certain level it may be unable to proceed. It also relies on BT reducing the amount it charges for access to its duct and pole infrastructure, which analysts are sceptical about.Finally, Fujitsu has remained tight-lipped on whether there will be a premium charged for people living in rural areas for the privilege of this network. While the point of the project is to help remove the digital divide, this could risk erecting yet another barrier.
