Should be reflected in Yahoo Japan revs and value
"Not to be forgotten as the search engine of yesteryear, Yahoo stakes its claim over Taiwan and Japan, the latter easily known to be one of the most technologically advanced countries in the world."
Discussing new CDC guidance on antivirals, lack of alternatives if unable to take orally because of gastric issues, and a comment at end about peramivir NDA to come. This may be a repeat because first post did not appear, if so, sorry for repeat.
For most people, getting the flu means feeling achy and feverish for a week or so, but for people 65 years and older, the flu can be much more serious. People in this age group are at high risk for severe flu illness and complications. In fact, an estimated 60 percent of flu-related hospitalizations in the United States occur in this age group each year. Last season flu illness was particularly severe for people 65 and older, prompting CDC to report the highest flu-related hospitalization rates in this age group since it began tracking this information during the 2005-2006 flu season.
Unfortunately, the burden of flu illness in people 65 and older was accompanied by reports that the flu vaccine did not work as well as expected to protect people in this age group against one particular flu virus last season. If that news left you asking yourself whether getting a flu vaccine this season is still worthwhile for people 65 and older, the answer is absolutely and unquestionably, “Yes!”
(Unfortunately, we do not have an intravenous antiviral currently available to treat seniors in this country. If you are seriously ill, you may consider flying to Japan or South Korea)
3-5 catalysts in unknown order: 1) Publication of Filovirus data (they said was coming); 2) Start of clinical trial with HAE patients with frequent recurrence; 3) Filing of NDA for peramivir based on Japanese clinical data and peer reviewed publications and unknowns 4) Gout partnership/license 5) Peramivir orders in US or overseas.
ViroPharma is valued at 3.9 times its projected 2015 sales, compared with a median 10 times for U.S. biotechnology companies valued at more than $1 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
So how would Biocryst be valued for sales of 1/2 the HAE market plus 25% of the Tamiflu market, which was $360 million quarterly? LOOKS like 4-10X 700 million,or 2.8 to $7 billion

Good to get that kind of exposure. Oh, and by the way, don't believe that contract award is about Marburg. Its really about MERS, but they don't want to expose the level of concern that MERS-CoV s causing. But if there is an IND and clinical trial and supplies of a broad spectrum antiviral available, they can EUA it and procure it if necessary
Operating Income (Millions of yen)
2013 186,352 2012 165,000 2011 159,604
ie strong year over year growth in operating income for Yahoo Japan, plus a lot of current cash in yen.
The Ec 50 charts for this one included a number of virus types including coronaviridae, which includes whats going on with bats and camels and people in Saudi Arabia. The magic bullet is the one that stops MERS-CoV
As we look back five years, ahead of the five-year anniversary of Lehman Brothers' historic bankruptcy filing, it's easy to forget that the financial crisis was about much more than the devastation of Wall Street. Kirsten Grind has written a book about what she calls "the Main Street failure" of the financial crisis in 2008. Her book is called "The Lost Bank: The story of Washington Mutual and the Biggest Bank Failure in American History."
Washington Mutual was a bank headquartered in Seattle, Wash. After a good old-fashioned run on deposits on Sept. 25, 2008, the bank went bust. But "no depositor of WaMu was wiped out" says Grind. The FDIC stepped in and sold the bank to JPMorgan Chase. Anyone with a WaMu ATM card would have found no disruption in their accounts -- they lost not a single penny
Grind says she was surprised that WaMu didn't get much attention at the time, nor has it been mentioned much since 2008. By late September of that year, Lehman Brothers had already gone bankrupt while Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had been taken over by the U.S. Treasury -- it was easy to miss a bank collapse that seemed to hurt no one.
The only folks still suffering since WaMu's collapse are perhaps the company's leadership, says Grind. The government's TARP program was announced only six days after WaMu went bust -- six days too late to save the bank.
