Genocea shares already jumped after the company released 12-month topline data from a phase 2b study for its genital herpes therapeutic vaccine, but one analyst believes things may get a whole lot better at the biotech. In what “may be the most important data in Genocea’s history,” the new trial showed GEN-003 can sustain a significant reduction in genital lesions after 12 months, CEO Chip Clark said during a conference call Monday morning.
After its RSV F vaccine candidate flunked a major phase 3 trial last September, Novavax has been trying to prove that it's not the shot that's the problem. The company sees hope in a new phase 2 trial, but top-line results failed to restore confidence among investors. The vaccine developer in January started a new phase 2 test in 300 subjects aged 60 or older to evaluate the candidate’s immunogenicity.
With financial backing from the Israeli government and the European Investment Bank, BiondVax is pushing forward in its quest for a universal flu vaccine. The company’s candidate showed positive T-cell and antibody responses in a phase 2b trial. For the study, investigators divided 219 adult participants into three groups who received either a high dose or a low dose of the flu vaccine, M-001, or a dummy. All groups then received a partial dose of an H5N1 pandemic vaccine.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
