from the Street---- NeuVax is a cancer immunotherapy, or vaccine, which was designed to stimulate a patient's immune system to kill cancer cells. More specifically, Galena claimed NeuVax worked by training a patient's T cells to recognize and destroy cells in the body that express HER2, a protein that works like an "on" switch for breast cancer cells.
Hope 214 has a better outcome !
"Well we do know for a fact that is if it was doing harm it would be stopped and then reported as a required of law ....but IL-2 works"
Since you mentioned clinical trials being stopped...... what about Bayer's Cipro and Inhale trials? Both are wrapping up shortly and we've heard nothing from Bayer or a Data Monitoring Committee. Can we assume all is going well or at least doing no harm?
MDA comments everyday during their commercials they are going to wipe out cancer.....they just don't tell us it will be NKTR-214 that's going to do it.
I just hope they announce either one asap. A combo with either, publicized, should give Nektar a spike. Didn't HR mention the combos will start in Q3, even before ph1 214 results? MDA has been promoting themselves quite a bit recently with all the ads.
"It wound not surprise me if BMY has already pre-approved an Opdivo/214 combo under this collaboration"
Keytruda/214 may have a head start on Optivo/214 since Merck agreement with MDA is 9 months ahead of BMY.

Merck, MD Anderson to Study Keytruda in Combination Treatments
Merck & Co. and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center said today they will collaborate to evaluate the pharma’s marketed cancer therapy Keytruda® (pembrolizumab), in combination with other treatments, such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and/or new anti-tumor medicines. The value of the collaboration was not disclosed.
An experimental, long-acting opioid painkiller from Pfizer Inc showed potential to deter abuse but can be manipulated, according to a preliminary review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The treatment, whose proposed trade name is Troxyca ER, contains commonly used opioid, oxycodone. The abuse deterrence mechanism relies on incorporation of naltrexone into the drug product pellets
Tests show music superstar Prince, who was found dead in his home in a Minneapolis suburb in late April, died of an accidental, self-administered overdose of an opioid painkiller, the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office said on Thursday.
The medical examiner, based in Anoka County, Minnesota, had been investigating the 57-year-old singer's death since he was found in an elevator in his home and studio outside Minneapolis on April 21.
"There were traces of opoids in the blood brain barrier" determined by the investigator, results concluded "Prince died from opoid induced constipation, peripheral opioid antagonists were not existent at time of autopsy, however there were dissolved pills of Amitiza which were ineffective in blocking his MU receptors in the bowel." concluded the examiner.
"Prince misdiagnosis from his pain management doctor is what resulted in his death", explains NYU Langone Pain Management Doctor Miu Xuang, "Prince should have been scripted Movantik which is indicated for opiod induced constipation. This pill could have saved his life if it blocked opoid receptors in the bowel.
"OIC is a disease state which is sometimes dismissed by doctors due to misinformation" states specialty pharmaceutical rep at Daiichi Sankyo, "Im glad to be making a difference in those who need it. I hope this brings awareness to all those suffering with OIC and if you or someone you know is on opiod management and has difficulty using the bathroom please talk to your clinician for more information."
Before HR had 6 Senior Vice Presidents reporting to him, now he is responsible for 2. Time for a pay cut !
June 8th is 6 months into the 214 trial at MDA. An exuberant presentation would be nice.
