    Default GALE: Thoughts on this Biotech?

    Wanted to get another biotech thread started to see what you guys thought about Galena Biopharma Inc, Symbol: GALE

    Efficacy and Safety Study of NeuVax(TM)(Nelipepimut-S or E75) Vaccine to Prevent Breast Cancer Recurrence - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov

    Published today with some promising news:

    Small-cap Galena Biopharma Inc.’s (GALE:NASDAQ) lead program is NeuVax (nelipepimut or E75), a vaccine being tested in early-stage breast cancer patients whose tumors express low levels of HER2 (HER2 1+ and HER2 2+), who have been treated conventionally via surgical resection/chemotherapy/radiation, and who are determined to be disease-free upon completion of treatment. The idea is to prevent recurrence of disease due to micrometastases through immunization against HER2 expression in women deemed at risk after treatment with standard of care.

    The company presented updated results from its phase 1/2 study of NeuVax in women with early-stage breast cancer at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. “The data continue to show consistency of results supporting the rationale for a larger phase 3 study,” says Goldstein. The company could update enrollment during H1/13 on a 700-patient trial called PRESENT. Patients will receive an intradermal injection once each month for six months, followed by a single booster every six months, until either the trial ends (36 months) or there is disease progression. The endpoint for PRESENT is disease-free survival after three years. Galena is now in the process of enrolling sites and patients.

    “This is a pretty aggressive target in terms of enrollment, with that number of patients in more than 100 sites in the U.S., Europe and Asia. We think it is achievable, considering that there is such a large, motivated base of patients who want to prevent recurrence of disease,” she says. “The NeuVax PRESENT trial will account for the largest component of the company’s future valuation, and this is what we are focused on right now. Any update will help investors gauge the development time horizon, and that’s important because this is a company with a current modest valuation, even though it has a late-stage asset.”

    I definitely plan on doing some research on the company and product this weekend.

    I look forward to hearing your analysis!

    Thought I would give you another of my top 3 until we start the biotech thread. TTNP, check out the charts from 5 days, 1 month, 3 month, 6 month, YTD. Approval expected on April 30th. I will be playing this one hard.

    I like it! Let's do this dance!

    I'd like to see what it does next week. Seems like it gets in that $2~ range and then drops back off but volume might keep it rising towards their $4 target!

    Nice post Aston. THIS is why we should have these threads. Hopefully some of the experienced equities people, in addition to Liquid will jump in with thoughts, critiques and hypotheses. And hopefully some of the noobs (me) will ask the right questions and learn something. Thanks for jumping on board, Liquid. And you too Nick...for always being level headed in threads. I'd like to hear what Bulls has to say, as I think he's very knowledgeable, and I'm really considering using his service, in conjunction with my TDA account.

    I should really start to contribute. Through my battles and wins against cancer, and my current state of having crohns disease, this stuff is all very fluent to me. Starting around 12 years old, I became very interested in these types of medicines, including even partaking in multiple studies, sitting in on many lectures, and reading hundreds of books.

    I'll take a look in. GALE looks like it needs a little action soon. A bit too flat for too long

    ARNA may be something nice to look at for a long term investment. If the EU approval goes through, they will be a well established international manufacturer of a weight loss drug. They are in a partnership and they also have the backing of Aetna. VVUS did not earn EU approval, and as such it will be nowhere near as successful if ARNA gains EU Approval.

    Might be hard for ARNA, EU is scared of a few things that have come up in the trails. They are asking for a lot more info from the data about the side effects, regardless tho, product hits the shelves here around 60 days I believe.
