    Daily Iron Ore Mine Closings in China Make Citi Bullish
    By Jasmine Ng Jun 30, 2014 1:47 PM GMT+0200

    Rio Tinto CEO Says $80 a Ton for Iron Ore `Too Low'

    Iron ore prices, which completed a second straight quarterly loss today, will rebound as the daily closure of mines supplying high-cost output in China boosts demand for seaborne shipments, according to Citigroup Inc.

    Local suppliers in Asia’s largest economy are cutting production even as mills increase steel output on improved margins, according to analyst Ivan Szpakowski. An iron ore mine in China is being shuttered every day, with closures seen in all main producing regions, he said in an interview from Shanghai.

    Producers in China, the world’s largest user, face a rising challenge of lower-cost supplies from BHP Billiton Ltd. (BHP), Fortescue Metals Group Ltd. (FMG) and Vale SA (VALE5) after the biggest miners in Australia and Brazil expanded output and spurred a global glut. While benchmark prices in China posted the biggest three-month loss since 2012, they rose 2.2 percent in June, the first monthly advance since November.

    “We’re one of the most bullish people in the market,” said Szpakowski, reiterating a forecast for prices to average $100 a ton in the fourth quarter and $104 this year. “Imported ore is much cheaper than domestic ore, so the shift in buying has moved to imported ore. That’s supporting imported prices.”

    Ore with 62 percent iron content delivered to Tianjin fell 1.2 percent to $93.80 a dry ton today, according to data from The Steel Index Ltd. The commodity lost 20 percent this quarter, following a 13 percent decline between January and March. Prices advanced 3 percent last week, the most since the period ended August 16.

  • Statistically significant improvement in key parameters of heart function, including left ventricular ejection fraction and cardiac output

    June 10, 2014 — Mast Therapeutics Inc. announced that, in a placebo-controlled, nonclinical model of chronic heart failure, MST-188 demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in numerous parameters of heart function, including left ventricular ejection fraction and end-systolic volume, stroke volume and cardiac output. Notably, a single two-hour infusion of MST-188 resulted in improvements that were significant immediately (at the end of MST-188 administration) and remained significant at one week (and, in some cases, at two weeks) after MST-188 administration.

    Hani N. Sabbah, Ph.D., professor of medicine & director of cardiovascular research at Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, said: "These data clearly show that MST-188 improves left ventricular ejection fraction and end-systolic volume, both of which are important indicators of long-term mortality and morbidity in chronic heart failure, with some effects lasting up to two weeks post-infusion. The durability of response is very encouraging and merits clinical investigation."

    Santosh Vetticaden, M.D., Ph.D., chief medical officer of Mast Therapeutics, said: "Heart failure is an area of significant unmet medical need that accounts for over 1 million hospitalizations every year in the U.S. alone. Although there have been modest improvements in treatment, heart failure remains associated with significant mortality and high rates of hospital admission and readmission. We look forward to discussing these results with heart failure experts and potential partners and mapping our clinical development strategy in this exciting new indication."

    The company has submitted data from this clinical study for presentation at an upcoming medical conference and will provide an update on its plans for MST-188 in heart failure later in 2014.

    The objective of the study was to dete
