Advice from the independent data monitoring committee (IDMC) that Axsome Therapeutics Inc. quit the phase III trial called CREATE-1 with AXS-02 (disodium zoledronate tetrahydrate) put a dent in the company's shares and reshuffled the landscape for complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) candidates. But the IDMC also told New York-based Axsome that the phase III push with the same compound, fast-tracked in osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee with bone marrow lesions (BMLs), COAST-1, should proceed.
ATLANTA – About what he called "incredible" data with BB-2121 in multiple myeloma (MM), Bluebird Bio Inc.'s chief medical officer, David Davidson, told BioWorld that his firm is "actually in a privileged position to have positive results across all of our clinical programs" at the scientific meeting, with data in severe sickle cell disease (SCD) and beta-thalassemia. "But clearly the myeloma results are really getting everyone excited," he said.
After Jefferies analyst Peter Welford said in a late August report that Puretech Health plc affiliate Restorbio Inc. was "fast grabbing our attention," investors are paying heed as well, helping the company to a $40 million series B round to advance the immunotherapy RTB-101, a mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) inhibitor, through its phase IIb study and potentially into phase III for reducing the incidence of respiratory tract infections (RTIs) in elderly people.
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".
