    Glaxo Failure Good for ONCS - Partner ?

    ONCS' surge in volume and move higher Thursday was the direct result of Glaxo failing to meet endpoint results for their Phase 3 melanoma drug.

    As the competition falters and thins, ONCS could very well become a major player in this very lucrative market.

    Certainly Glaxo's now reevaluating their options and could very easily take a controlling interest in ONCS as they did with AGEN in this failed trial.

    Why this stock's not over $1 amazes me?

    Here's the story:

    LONDON—U.K. pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline said Thursday that its experimental cancer vaccine MAGE-A3 has failed to achieve an important trial milestone, dealing a blow to one of the company's more promising drugs in development.

    The failure of a GlaxoSmithKline cancer vaccine in a clinical trial is a setback for a hot area of medicine that seeks to harness the body’s immune system to fight tumors. .

    Glaxo said the drug didn't meet one of its primary goals in a late-stage trial in patients with melanoma, but that trials will continue. The drug didn't significantly extend the disease-free life of patients compared with placebo.

    MAGE-A3 is an antigen-specific cancer immunotherapeutic, designed to train the immune system to recognize and eliminate cancer cells in a way that mitigates side effects.

    The drug is one of a slate of promising new pipeline medicines from Glaxo either undergoing trials or slated for regulatory decisions during this year. It is regarded as a potentially innovative medicine in the promising new field of cancer vaccines.
