Oragenics, Inc. shares closed up 33.66% on Friday with around 24.7 million shares traded. It was early last week that the company announced the publication of a research paper called "Blueprints for the rational design of therapeutic mutacin 1140 variants." The study focused on structure-activity relationships of the lantibiotic Mutacin 1140 (MU1140) that expand the “drugability” of the MU1140 pipeline. The company is developing a second generation multiple variant of MU1140 called OG716. Dr. Alan Joslyn, Oragenics’ president and CEO stated, “The findings of this study provide insight into a more streamlined and effective development and manufacturing of this new class of anti-infectives. OG716 is targeted for the treatment of C. difficile infections, which have become an increasing health risk worldwide. New drug resistant strains have caused an increase in mortality by more than 400 percent, which are expected to continue to increase until we are able to counter against the resistance. We believe our compound may be an effective treatment for recurrent CDI. In the meantime, we anticipate submitting an Investigational New Drug application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin clinical development during 2019.”

Intec Pharma Ltd. shares closed up a little over 17% on Friday with around 1.7 million shares traded. Average trading volume for the stock is only around 177,000 shares. The stock hit a new high of $7.52 despite any significant news from the company. It was in early November that the company announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and provided a corporate update. "Throughout the third quarter, we continued to make significant progress across a number of key areas important to advancing our AP platform and for building Intec Pharma into a leading drug delivery company," stated Jeffrey A. Meckler, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Intec Pharma. He added, "We recently reported the completion of enrollment in our pivotal Phase 3 clinical trial of AP-CD/LD, which keeps us on track to report topline data in mid-2019. We remain encouraged by the continued strong participation in our OLE study, which gives us confidence that these data will be available in the second half of 2019 and will provide the long-term safety data required for our regulatory submission. We expect to have data from the PK study of AP-CD/LD 50/500 mg TID by year-end and believe these data will be important as this is a popular dosing regimen in the ACCORDANCE study and having this PK information will be of interest to potential partners and clinicians upon commercial launch.”
