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.

Divided Chinese eye Hong Kong protests with admiration, anger
30 Sep 2014 at 2:04pm
By Donny Kwok and Yimou Lee HONG KONG (Reuters) - For some mainland Chinese in Hong Kong, the sight of thousands of people on the streets protesting for greater democracy is an alien one that has prompted comparisons with the relative lack of political freedom back home. Others are less impressed, and see the mass show of defiance as a dangerous tactic that has shut down large parts of the city and raised the risk of serious confrontation with Hong Kong police. "For the first time in my life I feel close to politics," said a Chinese tourist from Beijing who gave only her surname, Yu. ...


Acupuncture may not be effective for knee pain: study
30 Sep 2014 at 2:00pm

By Kathryn Doyle NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Acupuncture won't improve chronic knee pain in middle-aged people, researchers say. In their study, real acupuncture using needles and lasers was no more helpful than sham acupuncture for chronic knee pain among people 50 years old and older. ?It is surprising that our study showed acupuncture was not effective compared to sham acupuncture, because many people with chronic knee pain report that treatment with acupuncture is beneficial for their symptoms,? said Rana S. Hinman, the study?s lead author from the University of Melbourne, Australia. ...
