Report of the Cancer Moonshot Task Force
While bold, the goal of the Cancer Moonshot is within our grasp. Today, society has the benefit of decades of scientific understanding and vast amounts of rich data just waiting to be transformed into solutions. We now know that cancer is hundreds of diseases, largely of our genome, and we have developed new and innovative ways of capitalizing on this knowledge. We know that our behavior and environment contribute to our likelihood of getting cancer, and we are modifying our behaviors and exposures to avoid known risks. We know that prevention and early diagnosis are key to fighting cancer, and we can build these efforts into clinical care. Read Full Release

Despite Recent Performance We Still See Room for Upside Given United Win and Xtampza ER Tailwinds for 2017
Following recent share performance that has shares almost doubling in the past two weeks, we continue to see room for share appreciation as the Xtampza ER launch has clear tailwinds as we exit the summer through 2017. Management has signed at least one large managed care win with UnitedHealth (UNH $140.00) and we believe additional managed care wins are likely during the fourth quarter as well as the potential for comparative data between OxyContin and Xtampza ER being added to label. Admittedly, the Xtampza ER launch was slow as management chose to launch during the summer months despite the historically slow season, which was compounded by a lack of approved marketing materials. However, the company recently received approved marketing materials and given formulary wins (both UnitedHealth and likely additional wins), we should see a ramping up of scripts over the next quarter and into 2017.

Dana Callow to be Panelist at Funding Models in Biotech MBBP Life Sciences Series – Panel 3
Today’s financing environment for emerging biotech companies presents a number of challenges.

So where does an emerging biotech company forage for precious dollars? Come join us on September 22nd at the CIC in Cambridge to hear a panel of experts discuss these trends.
