we desperatly need new antibiotics - big pharma has abandoned its development 25 years ago (reasons: no maintainance rx, risk of bacterial resistance, short lifecycle etc.). I know it first hand as I was marketing manager @ Merck Switzerland for imipenem (Tienam)...
In the past years I made some good money when Trius was swallowed by Cubist followed by the takeover of Cubist by Merck!
The rejection of Cempra's soli on Dec 28, 2016, was a real shock to me and it is still unbelievable. I am still holding a position but increased my positions in Paratek [PRTK] and AKAO. To me Tetraphase [TTPH] is the least attractive antibiotic company at the moment. I will explain this in detail in another post later on. Okay!?
The second field of specific interest is ImmunoOncology. I am looking forward to ASCO 2017: NLNK, CALA, CLDX, REGN, INO and DVAX will present their data. I will give some feedback on this board.
Take care, marsuculix
