Did Oxford Biomedica just find a new treatment for Parkinson’s disease?

first_img Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Did Oxford Biomedica just find a new treatment for Parkinson’s disease? I have previously written about Oxford Biomedica (LSE:OXB) and its attempt to become a leader in a $14bn industry. Today it announced an update on one of its partnerships with Axovant Gene Therapies — specifically a new treatment for Parkinson’s disease.As a reminder, Oxford Biomedica is a gene and cell therapy biotechnology company. Using its proprietary LentiVector platform, the firm collaborates with large pharmaceutical companies — such as Bristol Myers Squibb and Novartis. It helps them develop new drugs that would otherwise be too expensive or technically challenging to pursue. The company charges for its bio-processing services during drug development and continues to receive royalties after approval.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Today the company announced a progress update on the development on AXO-Lenti-PD – a gene therapy programme for Parkinson’s disease. This treatment is one of 18 products using the LentiVector Platform and is now transitioning into stage two trials.A new potential Parkinson’s disease treatment?The announcement was mixed with both good and bad news.The good news is that initial testing has shown the drug to be working. Patient-level data in the second cohort demonstrated consistent treatment outcomes providing evidence of dose-response. Patients saw an increase in ‘On’ time and a decrease in ‘Off’ time as compared to their original baseline.Put simply, the patient’s ability to retain control over their body movements improved significantly, with no adverse side effects of the gene therapy. This brings the whole world one step closer to a new and improved treatment for Parkinson’s disease. However, it is essential to remember that there is a long way to go before it can become an approved medicine.Furthermore, the bad news portion of the announcement extends this waiting period further.Due to delays in chemistry, manufacturing & controls (CMC) data and third-party packaging – likely attributable to disruptions caused by Covid-19 – the continued development of this treatment is going to take longer than expected.As a result, the next planned stage of a randomized sham-controlled trial for AXO-Lenti-PD will not enroll new patients before the end of 2021. Currently, it is unclear how long the delay will be. However, Axovant has stated an update will be issued in Q1 2021 once the development timelines have been clarified.The bottom lineThese delays in manufacturing are naturally going to prolong the development cycle for this particular treatment. However, the cause of these delays are short-term problems and unlikely to become a recurring issue.There has so far been no impact on other products in development. Therefore, I think investors have no need to worry. However, if future announcements of delays begin to emerge, it may be a sign of an underlying problem in the business that its competitors may take advantage of.With a promising set of results and only a temporary setback for the company, I still believe Oxford Biomedica is an outstanding growth stock on track to becoming a leader within its industry.

Brian O’Driscoll – Leinster, Lions and Ireland

first_imgNathan Hines…and Tommy Bowe at Ireland Brian O’Driscoll letting the joker outIrish hero and full-time joker, Brian O’Driscoll took some time out to chat pitch talk, impatience and having first dibs on the newspaper. RUGBY WORLD: Do you ever play any practical jokes?BRIAN O’DRISCOLL: Not practical jokes as such but general banter and keeping people on their toes. I always keep the young guys in check. I remember taking crap when I was a young guy ten-odd years ago. I don’t make life harder for them, I just make sure they have menial tasks to do, like cleaning buses or team rooms.RW: Apparently you take the mickey out of Gordon D’Arcy a lot?BOD: He’s too easy to get. I don’t even need to bring my own material, he provides it for me. We’ve been playing together for ten years so it started quite a while ago and I only have to say something and he pulls a redener!RW: Who are Ireland’s jokers?BOD: John Fogarty is quite a messer, Tomás O’Leary and Donncha O’Callaghan. You have to watch yourself with Donncha, but as a senior player you get left alone a bit more. It’s more the management – Paddy (O’Reilly), our bag man, always gets a hard time.RW: Has Donncha ever caught you out?BOD: Donners is married to my cousin, and I grew up playing schools rugby and U20s rugby with him, so we have a bit of a rapport.RW: What’s your favourite joke?BOD: A lot of my jokes are dirty. I came up with a joke myself, which I’m quite happy with. What do you call a flatulent boxer? Gassius Clay!Superman, Traffic and life after rugby…RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard on the pitch?BOD: I didn’t hear it myself but it was in a game I was playing in one New Year’s Eve. Mal O’Kelly was at the bottom of a ruck and Neil Best, who was playing for Ulster then, asked him, “What did your mum get you for Christmas?!”RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?BOD: To fly. It would be cool, you could go wherever you wanted. Superman seemed to have it easy.RW: Who’d you like to be stuck in a lift with?BOD: My friend Ciaran Scally. We were in the same year at school together and he played for Ireland before me but had to retire because of a bad knee injury. He always entertains me and makes me laugh.RW: Who would be your three dream dinner party guests? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS BOD: Bruce Springsteen. Peter Kay – I’ve never said that before, but it’s just this second come to me; it’s a given that you’d be laughing. So we’ve got entertainment and laugher. And Jessica Alba for good measure.RW: Do you have any bugbears?BOD: I have one: when you get a newspaper, put it down for a second and someone else picks it up. I like to be the first to read a newspaper, even if I only flick through it for 30 seconds; I like looking at it when it’s fresh. It’s like when you pick up a newspaper out of the bundle; you never take the top one, you go two or three deep so it’s nice and crisp. On the Leinster bus once, Mal O’Kelly picked up my copy of The Irish Times so I had a s*** fit. The boys gave me a hard time for that. I’m also not great in traffic. I don’t mind driving the long way if I’m still going; once you’re travelling it’s okay, but just sitting there is so frustrating.RW: Any phobias?BOD: I wouldn’t be mad on being stuck in an MRI machine but other than that not really.RW: What would you like to achieve outside of rugby?BOD: Hopefully to be a success at whatever I do afterwards, be that life in general or in business. I’d like to be relatively successful. It would be difficult to do something menial, that didn’t give me the appetite for getting up every day. I’d like to continue having ambition ultimately.RW: How would you like to be remembered?BOD: As easy to get along with and someone who is definitely loyal.Check out his profile for Ireland Check out his Twitter pageDoing what he does best… Check out Brians’ greatest try…Learn more about Brian’s teammates at Leinster…Gordon D’Arcy TAGS: Leinster last_img read more

Bogus callers and scams under investigation

He is described as being a man in his very early 20s.Gardaí have also been notified of a bogus collector collecting funds for ONE, the organisation for ex service men and women.“It seems the bogus collector is calling door-to-door while genuine collectors for ONE will only collect in public places on the street during the months of July and August. Genuine collectors will be in possession of the correct Garda authorisation as well as ID and will be providing the “Fuschia Emblem” to contributors.The third incident under investigation is where a victim applied for a clerical job online.The man supplied and address and contact details.“Subsequently, he was told he was successful and received a bank draft, payable to him, in the post, with instructions to lodge it to his bank account.He then received a number of emails instructing him to pay money to a number of other accounts.A Garda spokesperson said that the victim became suspicious and contacted his bank who informed him the bank draft was counterfeit.

During the investigation, it was revealed that the riotous mob had also looted, vandalized/damaged and set on fire several other shops and vehicles in the said area on 24.02.2020.Besides complainant Om Singh, 17 other complaints of similar nature were also received in the PS, which were later on clubbed in the present case FIR.Court’s AnalysisThe Court took into account the fact that the applicants have neither been named in the FIR nor there are any specific allegations against them by any of the complainants.Admittedly, no CCTV footage/viral video capturing the presence of applicants at the scene of crime on the date of the incident was available on record.The Court also noted that there is a gap of about 40 days between the date of incident and recording of statement of Beat Constable Pawan in the matter by the IO and no plausible explanation in this regard was given by the IO.The Court said,”Being a police official, what stopped Beat Constable Pawan from reporting the matter then and there in the PS or to bring the same in the knowledge of higher police officers. This casts serious doubt on the credibility of this witness. It is further relevant to note here that the applicants are residents of the same locality/area and as such, it is not surprising that their CDR location is being depicted at or around the scene of the crime on the date of the incident.”Furthermore, the Court also observed that even the statements under Section 161 Cr.P.C of public eyewitnesses were recorded by the IO recently much after the filing of the charge sheet.To this, the Court said.”Their statements, identifying the applicants to be part of the riotous mob is also doubtful, as a mute question still stares this Court as to why the aforesaid eyewitnesses/public witnesses did not name the applicants on the date of the incident itself and what made them wait for so long.”Consequently, considering the facts and circumstances of the case in totality, all the applicants, namely Shah Alam, Rashid Saifi and Mohd Shadab were admitted to bail on their furnishing a Personal Bond in the sum of Rs.20,000 (Rupees Twenty Thousand Only) each with one surety in the like amount each to the satisfaction of the Ld.CMM/Ld.Illaka MM/Ld.Duty MM.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more
