AbbVie’s top executive team has looked to the near future — and it is a fine and cheery place unhampered by generics or pricing pledges. CEO Rick Gonzalez, CFO Bill Chase and CSO Michael Severino sat down with Leerink’s Geoffrey Porges for a 90-minute discussion about the company, giving them a chance to outline a bullish scenario for the next few years — which includes some jaw-dropping forecasts for its franchise drug Humira as well as its two top drugs in the late-stage pipeline.
A prominent group of life sciences investors has plunked down $26 million to invest in Realm Therapeutics, a UK company with a US base that is pursuing a pair of mid-stage studies for atopic dermatitis and allergic conjunctivitis. Originally named PuriCore, the company reorganized last year and came out gunning on a pair of early-stage drugs: PR022 for atopic dermatitis and PR013 for allergic conjunctivitis.
Five months after Novartis stepped up to collaborate with Allergan on a combo NASH program, Allergan $AGN has followed up with what it describes as an encouraging followup snapshot to the mid-stage data for their drug cenicriviroc. But that could take some explaining. Their drug — which flat failed the primary and one secondary in the Phase IIb — unsurprisingly missed the composite endpoint looking at a one-stage drop in patients’ disease score with symptoms stabilizing.
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".
