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.

Pedal power rules the roads in Utrecht

By Martyn Herman UTRECHT, Netherlands (Reuters) - Rush hour has a distinctive soundtrack in Utrecht. Two wheels rather than four rule the roads in this pleasant Dutch city that claims to have 900,000 bicycles -- that's about three for every one of its inhabitants. No wonder organizers of the Tour de France felt they were in safe hands when they selected Utrecht for Saturday's Grand Depart of the 102nd edition of the famous race.

Malnutrition brings a terrible disease to children in Niger
3 Jul 2015 at 10:21pm

Mourdja's nose has been eaten away, like one lip and part of her upper gum, leaving the 13-year-old girl atrociously disfigured by noma, a disease that thrives on malnutrition. "It was better before," the teenager says shyly and simply in the arid heartland of Niger, one of the world's poorest nations, clearly ill at ease and fiddling with her bracelets. "The problem is that this is a very fast-acting disease," says nurse Fati Badamasi, who works for the Swiss NGO Sentinelles, active in Niger since 1992.

Weight-loss surgery edges out lifestyle changes for type 2 diabetes
3 Jul 2015 at 1:33pm

By Andrew M. Seaman (Reuters Health) - People with type 2 diabetes who have weight loss surgery are more likely to have significant improvements in their diabetes three years compared to diabetics who try lifestyle changes, a small new study suggests. "One of the most important things to take away is that there is durability of remission over time," said Dr. Anita Courcoulas of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, who led the research. Past studies have found that weight loss surgeries sometimes result in improvement for people with type 2 diabetes, but it remains to be seen if the surgeries are better at treating the condition than lifestyle interventions, the researchers write in JAMA Surgery.
