Inovio CEO Preps Retail Investors for Drug Study Failure

By Adam Feuerstein

Inovio Pharmaceuticals CEO Joseph Kim is walking back expectations for the phase II study of its DNA vaccine VGX-3100 in women with high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN 2/3), also known as cervical pre-cancerous lesions. Results from the VGX-3100 study should be announced any day, but I suspect Inovio already has data in hand. Why else would Kim be laying the foundation for a massive spin job, if not to cushion the vaccine's failure?

Merck Buys Idenix for $3.9B in Yet Another Blockbuster Hep C Deal

By Adam Feuerstein

With Gilead Sciences already marketing the hepatitis C pill Sovaldi and competition from Abbvie-Enanta Pharma and Bristol-Myers Squibb close behind, a lot of investors believed the hepatitis C drug race had transitioned to marketing and away from M&A. But Merck chief scientitist Roger Perlmutter is no dummy, so his decision to spend almost $4 billion on Idenix says the hepatitis C treatment market may have a much longer tail than many believed.
