  • 40/82   Vaxart: An Alternative Opportunity in the COVID-19 Vaccine Landscape
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    On Tuesday, vaccine specialist Vaxart (VXRT) announced it has dosed the first subject in the Phase 1 study of VXA-CoV2-1, the company’s oral, room-temperature stable COVID-19 vaccine candidate.After the vaccine impressed in preclinical models, it is a timely announcement from Vaxart. While the small biotech is significantly behind other, mostly bigger competitors in its Covid-19 vaccine program, as recent events have shown, bringing to market a viable solution is far from hassle free.Earlier this week, Johnson & Johnson halted its Covid-19 vaccine candidate’s Phase 3 study due to a participant’s unexplained illness. That event was swiftly followed by Eli Lily pausing enrollment for its Covid-19 treatment program due to safety concerns.For FBR Riley analyst Mayank Mamtani, the bigger players’ struggles highlight the alternative opportunity Vaxart presents for investors.“As the COVID-19 cases continue to spike WW and leading programs from J&J and AZN experience speedbumps with late-stage development, albeit temporary, it is becoming increasingly important to have multiple shots on goal in the C-19 vaccine landscape and recommend investors diversify positions, including with alternative modalities, e.g., VXRT’s oral candidate, which not only have the potential to be self-administered but are also room-temperature stable and rapidly scalable, conferring significant advantages with respect to stockpiling and distribution, particularly relevant in non-western economies with limited healthcare resources,“ Mamtani commented.Vaxart stock has experienced a roller coaster ride in 2020. Despite being up by 1637% year-to-date, the share price has actually retreated by over 60% since the July yearly highs. Mamtani believes that in addition to the pullback, its “valuation disconnect relative to more advanced C-19 vaccine peers, presents an additional compelling buying opportunity.”To this end, Mamtani rates VXRT a Buy along with a $22 price target. Investors could be pocketing a massive 262% gain, should his thesis play out over the next year. (To watch Mamtani’s track record, click here)Overall, only one other analyst is currently keeping a tab on Vaxart’s progress, also recommending the stock a Buy. Vaxart, therefore, has a Moderate Buy consensus rating backed with a $19.50 average price target. The figure suggests potential upside of 220% in the year ahead.

  • 51/82   South African white farmers and rival black protesters face off outside court hearing over farm murder case
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    White South African farmers and rival Black protesters hurled abuse and threats at each other on Friday ahead of a court hearing in a murder case that has exposed still simmering racial tensions 26 years after the end of apartheid. The killing of Brendan Horner, a white man whose body was found tied to a pole at his farm in Free State province, sparked riots at the start of this month, and prompted President Cyril Ramaphosa to make a statement urging South Africans to "resist attempts... to mobilise communities along racial lines". The farmers, who accuse the government of failing to protect them from violent crime, arrived in pick-up trucks ahead of the court hearing in the central town of Senekal for Horner's two suspected killers. The farmers mostly wore khaki shirts and shorts, a few wore military outfits, and at least one was armed. A group on motorbikes sporting long beards drove through Senekal, a trading town surrounded by dry, hilly countryside, some waving flags with crosses on. "We are getting tired now of all the farm murders," said Geoffrey Marais, 30, a livestock trader from Delmas, where a woman was strangled to death two weeks ago. "Enough is enough. They (the government) must start to prioritise these crimes."

    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    In a blow to one of the few drugs being used to treat COVID-19, the World Health Organization (WHO) said interim trial results suggest that Gilead's remdesivir was no better than a placebo at limiting severely ill patients' need for mechanical ventilation, the length of their hospital stay, or their risk of death.  Then, the authors looked at data on nearly 740,000 COVID-19 patients and examined the use of drugs that work to protect these processes, asking whether patients who received them fared better - and they did, in some cases.

  • 62/82   WHO study finds remdesivir didn't help COVID-19 patients
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    A large study led by the World Health Organization suggests that the antiviral drug remdesivir did not help hospitalized COVID-19 patients, in contrast to an earlier study that made the medicine a standard of care in the United States and many other countries. The results announced Friday do not negate the previous ones, and the WHO study was not as rigorous as the earlier one led by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. It’s approved for use against COVID-19 in the United Kingdom and Europe, and is among the treatments U.S. President Donald Trump received when he was infected earlier this month.

    United Nations experts issued a mandate expressing “serious concern” regarding heightened racist and xenophobic attacks against Asian Americans during the coronavirus pandemic.  In the document made public this week, experts appointed by the Human Rights Council wrote that violence and attacks against people of Asian descent have reached an “alarming level” since the start of the outbreak.  E. Tendayi Achiume — an author of the mandate who serves as special rapporteur on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance — told NBC Asian America that it’s difficult to draw a clear link between the “China virus” rhetoric, frequently used by President Donald Trump, and the hate attacks.

  • 68/82   ‘Putin’s Chef’ Barred From Europe for Shady Mercenary Operations
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    When he was released from a Soviet prison in 1990, Yevgeny Prigozhin went to work as a hot dog salesman. Soon, the budding entrepreneur—who had just served nine years for robbery and fraud—began moving up in the world of gastronomy. He became the manager of a chain of grocery stores in St. Petersburg, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s hometown, and eventually expanded into the restaurant business.In the late 1990s, Prigozhin opened New Island, a floating restaurant on St. Petersburg’s Vyatka river. It became popular with the local elite, and a few years after its launch, Putin showed up for dinner at New Island with French President Jacques Chirac. As has now become lore in certain circles, Prigozhin himself waited on them.Prigozhin, who would come to be known as “Putin’s chef,” has said that New Island was inspired by the waterfront restaurants he saw along the Seine in Paris. But as of yesterday, he’s barred from visiting them anytime soon.‘Putin’s Chef’ Threatens to Destroy Alexei Navalny in the Courts if He Survives Poisoning On Oct. 15, Prigozhin was blacklisted by the European Union, freezing all of his European assets and barring him from entering the EU. The reason behind the ban had nothing to do with food, but with the activities of the Wagner Group, a private military company allegedly established by Prigozhin in 2014. Prigozhin has denied any link to the firm.The mercenary force, which is reportedly closely tied to the Kremlin, has fought to prop up Libyan strongman Khalifa Haftar—who is battling the internationally recognized Government of National Accord.In announcing Prigozhin’s EU ban, a statement from Brussels accused the Wagner Group of threatening Libya’s “peace, stability and security.”Over the summer, Prigozhin was sanctioned by the U.S. for the Wagner Group’s operations in the North African nation. Prigozhin is also the founder of Russia’s notorious Internet Research Agency, the state-backed “troll farm” accused in U.S. indictments of interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.Meanwhile, Lyubov Sobol, a lawyer who is close to Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny, believes the men who recently poisoned Navalny were sent by Prigozhin. At the same time, Prigozhin is suing Sobol and Navalny for saying his company served rotten meat to schoolchildren.Private military companies such as the Wagner Group are in fact illegal under Russian law. However, certain favored outfits are permitted to operate—which they do, essentially, in a partnership of sorts with the state.As Barnard College professor Kimberly Marten explained in congressional testimony last July, “Keeping these groups illegal in Russia enhances plausible deniability for the Russian state, by allowing the Kremlin to distance itself from any unsavory or risky actions the groups take.”The Wagner Group is said to have as many as 2,000 mercenaries in Libya, and has put for-profit boots on the ground in Syria, Venezuela, Sudan, and the Central African Republic. To get these contracts, “You need really big connections,” a former member of the Russian security services told The Daily Beast. “It’s an insane amount of money.”“Everyone knows who is behind it, but nothing [about the government relationship] is put on paper,” said the former operative, who now lives in the U.S. “But they are affiliated with the government, there’s no way around it.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

  • 72/82   As the second wave arrives, can Germany escape the worst again?
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    Germany is once more in the grip of the coronavirus. Angela Merkel warned a few days ago that the country, which appeared to have escaped the second wave, could be heading for “disaster” unless drastic action is taken. In the past week alone, the headlines have included children being told to bring blankets to school because the windows have to be opened every twenty minutes to ward off the virus, and the news that the entire leadership of Germany’s domestic intelligence agency is self-isolating after testing positive. Every day, the record for new infections is broken. There were 7,334 on Friday, up from 6,638 the day before. It’s still nowhere near the sort of numbers seen in the UK or France, but the rate is going up fast. “We don’t expect the numbers to fall tomorrow. They will continue to rise,” Helge Braun, Mrs Merkel’s chief of staff, said on Friday. “We are at the beginning of a really big second wave. Things are significantly more serious than they were in the spring.” It is a stark assessment for a country that, until now, appears to have weathered the pandemic better than almost anywhere else in Europe. “A German exception?” was the headline in the New York Times earlier this year, when Germany made it through the first wave with a significantly lower infection and death rates than its European neighbours.
