Exelixis already markets cabozantinib as Cabometyx for patients with advanced renal cell carcinoma (RCC), a type of kidney cancer, and as Cometriq for metastatic medullary thyroid cancer. Together, sales of the two brands accounted for just over $96 million in the third quarter, up 12% from a year prior. In 2018, Exelixis plans to build on that foundation by expanding into previously untreated RCC patients and into the new indication of HCC.
Spark's clinical evidence for Luxturna (voretigene neparvovec) impressed both independent experts and the Food and Drug Administration, showing the therapy improved sight and mobility in individuals with a type of inherited retinal dystrophy caused by defects in the RPE65 gene. ICER largely agreed, citing high certainty that Luxturna delivered at least a small net health benefit to patients.
2017 brought a bumper crop of new drugs, including groundbreaking treatments in cell and gene therapy — all of which boost confidence in the industry's ability to deliver needed medicines. But the year also saw its fair share of restructurings, pipeline culls and clinical trials gone bust. Alzheimer's disease remains as intractable as ever, and concerns linger about development productivity despite the uptick in approvals.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
