VFC's Stock House: Immunocellular Therapeutics May Be Immune To A Broad Market Downturn

(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 10, 2012 ) New York, NY -- With a new trading quarter upon us, the broad markets as a whole look ready to take a downswing after a strong first quarter and months of running higher as the global economy demonstrated a strength and resiliency not seen for years. Although a downswing - or "correction", as some might term it - could be in the works, there are some companies and stocks out there with enough pending news, catalysts and developments that may allow them to weather the storm and outperform the near-term market trends.



Immunocellular Therapeutics (IMUC) is one that has already well-outperformed the market this year and could maintain strength into any general downswing.



Over the course of the past six months Immunocellular has emerged from one of a quite few speculative Phase II cancer immunotherapy companies to become a potential front-runner in the next generation of such treatments.



Fueled by encouraging survival data from early trials and positive developments on the business front, IMUC has soared past the two dollar mark with ease and even breached the three dollar barrier for a period, a level that the share price still flirts with on a near-daily basis, even as the market as a whole is on a breather.



Other developments and pending catalysts also bode well for both the short and long term future of Immunocellular.

Four dead, 65 sick in New York City Legionnaires' disease outbreak
1 Aug 2015 at 1:49pm
By Katie Reilly NEW YORK (Reuters) - A deadly outbreak of Legionnaires' disease, a severe type of pneumonia, has now killed four people and sickened 65 in the Bronx section of New York City since July 10, New York City health officials said on Saturday. This wave of Legionnaires', which officials have called unusual, is now more than five times the number of cases recorded in the last outbreak, in which 12 people in the Bronx fell ill in December 2014. The disease is caused by Legionella, a bacteria found in certain plumbing systems, including hot tubs, humidifiers, cooling towers and hot water tanks.


Fetal tissue research declining, still important
1 Aug 2015 at 11:31am

By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - A political battle over the use of fetal tissue in medical research has been reinvigorated by the release of undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood officials. Newer, less-controversial technologies, including the ?reprogramming? of adult skin cells to create specific types of stem cells, have rendered fetal tissue less central - though still important - to medical research, they said. Dr. Robert Lanza, chief scientific officer of Advanced Cell Technology, said that much of tissue needed for research "can now be generated in the laboratory." At Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, for instance, only about 10 out of 8,000 active research protocols involve fetal tissue, according to an official at the Harvard-affiliated hospital who asked to remain anonymous.



NYC Doctor, Who Survived Ebola, Says Experimental Vaccine Could Be 'A Way For...
1 Aug 2015 at 6:44am

A New York City doctor, who made headlines after he was diagnosed with Ebola, said he hoped an experimental vaccine could be ?a way forward? for a region decimated by the deadly virus. Craig Spencer, an emergency room physician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, made headlines last year when he contracted Ebola after treating patients for the disease in Guinea. After his treatment Spencer returned to Guinea to treat patients and he got to see firsthand how the vaccine trial affected patients and health care workers.



Kenya mulls granting refuge to chimps from Ebola-hit Liberia
1 Aug 2015 at 2:34am

By Edith Honan NAIROBI (Reuters) - Kenyan officials said on Friday they were considering conservationists' appeals to give two baby chimpanzees, rescued from possible traffickers in ebola-hit Liberia, sanctuary in a Kenyan reserve but public health fears were holding up transfer. Conservationists believe the animals had been victims of trafficking that sent baby chimps from West and Central Africa to Chinese zoos and private estates in the Middle East, where they can fetch as much as $25,000. Ebola has killed more than 11,200 people in West Africa since it broke out in December 2013.



Breakthrough in quest for Ebola vaccine
1 Aug 2015 at 12:31am

An Ebola test vaccine provided blanket protection in a field trial in Guinea, researchers said, possibly heralding "the beginning of the end" for the devastating West African outbreak that has killed thousands. The serum was 100 percent effective after a week in more than 7,600 people inoculated, according to results published in The Lancet medical journal and hailed as "extremely promising" by World Health Organization (WHO) chief Margaret Chan. The world was "on the verge of an effective Ebola vaccine," the UN's health agency said in a statement.

Rio pledges cleaner waters for Olympics next year
31 Jul 2015 at 10:10pm
By Karolos Grohmann KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Efforts to improve the water quality for the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics are ongoing, Games organizers said on Saturday, adding the welfare of the athletes was a top priority after reports of severe pollution off the shores of the Brazilian metropolis. Privately commissioned tests of the water quality, where rowers, sailors and open water swimmers will be competing, revealed this week a high level of disease-causing viruses. The waters along Rio's Atlantic coast, including Guanabara Bay where sailing events will be held, have been polluted for years and successive governments have spent hundreds of millions of dollars on supposed clean-ups to little effect.


India court concludes hearing Maggi noodles case
31 Jul 2015 at 10:07pm

An Indian court has concluded hearing a case filed by Nestle India challenging a local regulator's report that Maggi instant noodles contained excess lead, a lawyer for the company said. The Bombay High Court will give a judgment at a later date, Rajesh Batra said in a statement late on Friday. Nestle has been at the center of India's worst food scare in a decade after a regulator in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh in May said it found excess lead in a sample of the firm's popular Maggi noodles.


Olympics-Rio pledges cleaner waters for Olympics next year
31 Jul 2015 at 9:37pm
By Karolos Grohmann KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 1 (Reuters) - Efforts to improve the water quality for the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympics are ongoing, Games organisers said on Saturday, adding the welfare of the athletes was a top priority after reports of severe pollution off the shores of the Brazilian metropolis. Privately commissioned tests of the water quality, where rowers, sailors and open water swimmers will be competing, revealed this week a high level of disease-causing viruses. "The bay is the most iconic part of the Rio 2016 legacy," Games communications chief Mario Andrada told the International Olympics Committee in a progress presentation just over a year before the Games start on Aug 5, 2016.

31 Jul 2015 at 5:15pm

Officials in both Iran and Iraq declared a mandatory holiday this month after temperatures soared far into the triple digits.

WASHINGTON (AP) ?

Anti-abortion group is sued over video releases
31 Jul 2015 at 4:44pm

In a complaint filed in San Francisco federal court, the National Abortion Federation, a nonprofit representing abortion providers, accused the Center for Medical Progress and its founder, David Daleiden, of illegally infiltrating and recording its private meetings. U.S. District Judge William Orrick late Friday issued a temporary restraining order blocking the defendants from releasing videos and audio recordings containing NAF member names and addresses, and dates and locations of future meetings, pending a hearing on Monday. Orrick said the NAF would likely prevail on the merits of its lawsuit, and said it could face "harassment, intimidation, violence, invasion of privacy, and injury to reputation" absent a halt.

Chimps in New York animal rights lawsuit to be retired from lab
31 Jul 2015 at 3:57pm
By Katie Reilly NEW YORK (Reuters) - The chimpanzees at the center of a New York State Supreme Court case over the legal rights of animals will no longer be used for research, officials at the State University of New York at Stony Brook said on Friday. The retirement of the chimps, named Hercules and Leo, follows a failed bid by an animal rights group in state court to get the primates released on legal grounds. The Nonhuman Rights Project, which advocates for the legal rights of animals, in March sued Stony Brook, where the chimps were used for physiological research.
