|mjneish: Fickena, here's what a quick foray into Pharmagene has turned up; I've kept it as concise as possible. By all means exclude it from the header if it's too early-stage.
Web page: http://www.pharmagene.com
Development strategy: to achieve early-stage licensing and development partners for their therapeutic candidates. Discussions are underway for their four leading compounds.
R1 for irritable bowel syndrome: entered Phase I in January 2005
R4 for migraine: to enter Phase I
R65 for women's health, glaucoma and immunology: to enter pre-clinical trials
R99 for inflammatory/immune disorders: pre-clinical candidate to be selected
Pharmagene also has a drug discovery services division that is generating revenues. The share price is currently (end of January 2005) trading around cash level.|
I tried to email them and their investor relation address is
However they do not even own the domain akers.com, some family in San Fransisco does! The mail bounced.
Their site is over a year out of date and every announcement they seem to make is followed up by a correction, issued the wrong amount of shares and even published another companies trading update instead of their own.
Plus the company's share price has been plumenting, all the while the directors are issuing themselves shares!
Will wait and see with this one.|
|supercity: nice thread.....even if it is not added i am sure that gwpharmaceuticals (gwp)should get a mention...could be an absolute goldmine later in the year...i do hold.
...too much to post what it is all about but in short the main product at present is Sativex (a cannabis based medicine that helps MS sufferers amoung others).
Uk approval delayed six months (coincidentally after the election) but Canada have issued a Qualifying Notice for the approval of Sativex.
check out the website, the pull back in share price on the uk disappointment may well provide a good buying opportunity.|
|bluemango: I imagine this thread could rapidly grow into having a list of almost all UK biotechs, nevertheless I consider Proteome Sciences (PRM) certainly deserves a mention. Low cash-burn, concentration on diagnostics (therefore without expensive drug trials and lengthy approvals process) and with patented claims to be able to diagnose (by protein analysis of blood samples), amongst others, vCJD in blood donations, BSE in live cattle, stroke, solid organ transplant rejection, and various forms of cancer.
Share price is at an historic low due to disappointments/delays over expected deals, however 'the word' is that around 3 deals are imminent, one of which is likely to be a lab-based stroke test with the likelihood of significant up-front and milestone payments.
As well as their diagnostic 'biomarkers', the company also offer leading-edge proteomics expertise, with applications including drug refurbishment, toxioproteomics (predicting toxicity of new drug candidates), prognostics and discovery of new therapeutics. Proteome Sciences also hold a 40% stake in US subsidiary Intronn which is developing novel gene therapy techniques including potential for cancer imaging and therapeutics for genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis.
The company is headed by CEO Chris Pearce, ex-Merchant Banker and head of previous successful business Fitness First. Aim-listed Proteome Sciences is my personal target for highest-growing UK biotech for 2005.|
