VFC's Stock House: Synergy Pharmaceuticals (SGYP) Ready To Roll

(EMAILWIRE.COM, May 22, 2012 ) New York, NY -- VFC's Stock House, an information and research outlet that brings ideas and opens discussions to a broad spectrum of investors, reported today that Synergy Pharmaceuticals (SGYP) may be in a position to realize significant share price gains over the coming months.



Synergy Pharmaceuticals (SGYP) ran to over seven dollars last month on increasing volume as the company's billion dollar potential took shape and numerous analysts jumped on board with encouraging write-ups and bold price predictions.



Synergy also received a boost when its chief competitor, Ironwood Pharmaceuticals (IRWD) received a setback at the FDA that allows SGYP an extra three months to play catch up in the race to commercialization for each company's respective product candidate, both of which target the same indication. Synergy's product Plecanatide, however, has a much more favorable side effect profile, making the Ironwood setback that much more of a key factor when discussing future market potential.



Both products, Synergy's Plecanatide and Ironwood's Linaclotide, are being developed to treat chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) and constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C). Linaclotide is already before the FDA for review, although the review was delayed by three months, as mentioned before, while Phase II/III Plecanatide results are due out later this year.



The head start to market may provide Ironwood with a distinct advantage, but the advantage might not last too long when Plecanatide shows up on the scene.



During the Linaclotide trials, the drug was successful in alleviating symptoms relating to IBS-C and CIC when compared to a placebo, but the kicker is that patients experienced side effects that included cases of extreme diarrhea, essentially reversing the symptom being treated. Some cases of diarrhea were so bad that 6% of the patients decided to abandon the trial altogether.



On the open market - with a competing product out there for which there have been no such cases noted - that means those patients would likely switch to the alternative, in this case Plecanatide, that is not associated with carrying around a roll of Charmin' Soft at all times.

25 Apr 2015 at 4:06pm
By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - Three highly pathogenic avian flu viruses that have infected poultry and wild birds in the U.S. Midwest appear unlikely to present a significant risk to humans.

Quake triggers Everest avalanche, reports say 18 killed
25 Apr 2015 at 4:02pm
By Gopal Sharma KATHMANDU (Reuters) - An Indian army mountaineering team found 18 bodies on Mount Everest on Saturday, an army spokesman said, after a massive earthquake in Nepal unleashed an avalanche on the world's tallest mountain at the start of the main climbing season. Nepal's Tourism Ministry could only confirm 10 deaths, but spokesman Gyanendra Shrestha said the death toll could rise, and that the avalanche had buried part of the base camp. He died as a result of head injuries when the avalanche hit, according to a statement from the mountaineering company that had taken him to base camp."We pray too for all those who have lost their lives in one of the greatest tragedies ever to hit this Himalayan nation," Jagged Globe said.Tourism ministry officials estimated that at least 1,000 climbers, including about 400 foreigners, had been at base camp or on Everest when the earthquake struck. April is one of the most popular times to scale the 8,850-metre (29,035 foot) peak before rain and clouds cloak it at the end of May. Almost exactly a year ago, an avalanche killed 16 Nepali guides in what was the single deadliest day on the mountain.


Nepal seeks help, death toll seen rising after devastating quake
25 Apr 2015 at 4:02pm

By Gopal Sharma and Ross Adkin KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Nepal urged countries to send aid to help it cope with the aftermath of a devastating earthquake that killed nearly 1,400 people, a toll predicted to rise as rescuers used their hands to dig for survivors among the rubble on Sunday. Thousands of people braved freezing temperatures and patchy rain to sleep on pavements, in parks or in fields in the crowded Kathmandu valley, too afraid to return to homes damaged by a 7.9 magnitude quake which struck at midday on Saturday. "Our country is in a moment of crisis and we will require tremendous support and aid," he told Indian television. Police said the death toll had reached 1,394, with about 4,700 injured.

25 Apr 2015 at 2:04pm
(Reuters) - Bristol-Myers Squibb Co said its experimental drug cured hepatitis C in over 90 percent of patients in combination with Gilead Sciences Inc's Sovaldi and a commonly prescribed drug, ribavirin, in a late-stage study. Data presented at the International Liver Congress on Saturday showed that the combination cured 94 percent of the patients suffering from hepatitis C after a liver transplant and 83 percent of patients with severe scarring.

Farage dismisses health rumours ahead of election
25 Apr 2015 at 2:11am

Nigel Farage, the leader of Britain's anti-EU UK Independence Party, on Saturday dismissed rumours he was seriously unwell but said he had been dogged by chronic back pain that has hampered his ability to campaign for the May 7 election. "There were a lot of rumours at the start of this campaign that I was unwell which I denied," he told the Daily Telegraph, ahead of what is shaping up to be Britain's tightest election in a generation. Often seen as being a one-man band fronted by Farage, UKIP is set to play a key role in the election because it siphons support from Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives and the opposition Labour Party, potentially preventing either from winning an outright majority.
