Yesterday, the Food and Drug Administration made history, approving a drug to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy that works by targeting the genetic mutation at the root of the disease.

AbbVie's Humira, used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other auto-immune disorders, could become the world's first medicine to generate $15 billion in annual sales, according to forecasts by the investment bank Leerink.

For Celgene, the giant biotechnology company that turned thalidomide into a series of big-selling blood cancer drugs, the most watched event of the fall was supposed to be the release of data on GED-0301, a new treatment for Crohn's disease. In an early study, the pill seemed to induce remission [...]
These mice are glowing because scientists inserted a gene found in certain bioluminescent jellyfish into their DNA. That gene is a recipe for a protein that glows green when hit by blue or ultraviolet light. The protein is present throughout their bodies. As a result, their skin, eyes and organs give off an eerie light.
Novartis is shutting down the business unit it created to develop white blood cells that can attack certain types of cancer, but continuing to develop such projects known as chimeric antigen receptor T-cells, or CAR-Ts.

Here's another rip-off about EpiPen that nobody's talking about: that there is a free market around drug prices, and many patients are being excluded from it. One of the terrifying things about the branded drug market is that competition often doesn't result in lower prices, especially when it comes to a [...]
Mylan Pharmaceuticals has been raising the price of the EpiPen for six years. The world has been outraged about it for six days. Here, then, are some thoughts on turning the rage into change. "The reason people are upset by it is because it's upsetting," says David Maris, an analyst at [...]

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
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".
