Biotecnologie: è difficile stare al passo con il loro progresso

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 2 maggio 2018

A cura di:Marie-Laure Schaufelberger, Product Specialist del fondo Pictet-Biotech di Pictet Asset Management. Le società farmaceutiche stanno perdendo terreno nei confronti di un nuovo tipo di produttori farmaceutici. Mentre le case farmaceutiche producono medicinali partendo dalle sostanze chimiche, le società biotecnologiche utilizzano organismi viventi come batteri o enzimi per i loro prodotti. Inoltre, una più profonda comprensione del DNA umano ha consentito alle società biotecnologiche di affrontare malattie specifiche con molta più precisione rispetto alle società farmaceutiche tradizionali. Il settore ha un tasso di crescita stimato del 15-20% annuo. Questo rappresenta un tasso di crescita previsto del 6% per le vendite di farmaci con prescrizione a livello mondiale per il periodo fino al 2022. Oltre 700 società biotecnologiche sono attualmente quotate sui mercati azionari internazionali. I ricavi totali delle società biotecnologiche quotate sono cresciuti di sette volte dal 2000 al 2016, passando da poco più di 20 a quasi 140 miliardi di dollari.Le società biotecnologiche hanno già raggiunto risultati considerevoli. ‘Un buon esempio è la cura per l’epatite C, che è stata messa a punto da un’importante società biotecnologica americana’, afferma Marie-Laure Schaufelberger, Product Specialist del fondo Pictet-Biotech. Tuttavia, il prezzo di questa cura è alto. Un trattamento della durata di tre mesi può costare dai 70.000 ai 100.000 dollari. Dozzine di società biotecnologiche hanno uno o più prodotti nella fase finale di sviluppo clinico che precede l’approvazione della FDA, l’ente governativo americano che si occupa della regolamentazione dei prodotti alimentari e farmaceutici.
Nell’ambito farmaceutico tradizionale, quando il brevetto di un farmaco di successo scade, un timore diffuso per il produttore è che le società che realizzano farmaci generici ne riproducano la formula commercializzandola a un prezzo significativamente scontato. Dato che i brevetti dell’Aspirina sono in circolazione da parecchio tempo, altre società oltre alla Bayer, che l’ha inventata, sono autorizzate a produrre e vendere questo farmaco. Ciò spiega perché una compressa costa solo pochi centesimi. La società di consulenza EvaluatePharma stima che le società farmaceutiche sono destinate a perdere ricavi pari a quasi 80 miliardi di dollari tra il 2017 e il 2020 per via dell’aumento della concorrenza. Per le società biotecnologiche, questo rischio è notevolmente minore. ‘Chiunque voglia produrre una medicina simile a un farmaco biotecnologico il cui brevetto è scaduto – noto anche come farmaco biosimilare – deve innanzitutto dimostrare che il prodotto presenta esattamente le stesse caratteristiche biologiche del trattamento originale’, spiega Schaufelberger. ‘Una procedura molto più complessa rispetto a quella dei farmaci tradizionali, per i quali è sufficiente dimostrare che la composizione chimica è simile.’
Negli Stati Uniti, le società che intendono commercializzare la versione generica di un farmaco biotecnologico il cui brevetto è scaduto devono superare un altro ostacolo. ‘Questi farmaci devono superare test clinici, simili a quelli del farmaco biotecnologico originale’, afferma Schaufelberger. ‘Oltre a un capitale e conoscenze importanti, occorreranno laboratori di alta qualità per produrre in modo sicuro ed efficiente farmaci generici ed essere competitivi con un prodotto di successo, una volta scaduto il brevetto. Tra le società che possiedono tutti questi asset figurano molte grandi società biotecnologiche. Se giocano bene le loro carte, crediamo che abbiano il potenziale per attingere a una nuova fonte di reddito. Riteniamo che le dinamiche del settore biotecnologico lo rendano un’area di investimento interessante.’

Catella: Strategic Real Estate Allocation survey shows new real estate vehicles emerging

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 8 dicembre 2017

catella LichtenbergIn the latest Catella Market Tracker, “Strategic Real Estate Allocation – on its way into new product dimensions?”, the top100 multi-asset managers in Germany were asked what strategic real estate allocation course they will set over the coming months in the on-going real estate boom.The survey of the top 100 multi-asset managers revealed the following:
– 57% of the asset managers surveyed expect an appearance of real estate ETFs on the German market in 2019–2022, while only 13% do not expect a positioning of this product.
– Real estate secondaries and real estate multi-manager funds seem to be a particular future investment option. Of those surveyed, 20 % would invest 4–6 % in real estate secondaries, 7.7 % in multi-manager funds.
– Private equity investments would also profit from an adjustment if key interest rates rise, and would take an additional 10% share of investor allocation. The yield expectation is beyond 10%.
– Exchange traded funds experience an adjustment of 5 % in asset allocation, and could record an average yield of 3 %.“Tactical aspects continue to be expressed in the presented sentiment analysis, especially expansion towards the vehicles of real estate secondaries, and ETFs in the past 20 months seem to be more than a vision,” says Dr. Thomas Beyerle, Head of Group Research, regarding the results of the survey. “An attack on specialist funds does not seem to be happening here,” adds Beyerle. In the coming years, Catella Research therefore expects an increase in the market volume of alternative real estate products, even if only by a very low degree. Greater acceptance of the real-estate-based financial products of multi-asset managers with yield expectations quite a bit “beyond the 5” is shown.The complete Market Tracker is available at catella.com/research.

DuPont Pioneer Announces Intentions to Commercialize First CRISPR-Cas Product

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 aprile 2016

dupontJOHNSTON, Iowa – DuPont Pioneer announced waxy corn hybrids as its first commercial agricultural product developed through the application of CRISPR-Cas enabled advanced breeding technology. This next generation of elite waxy corn hybrids is expected to be available to U.S. growers within five years, pending field trails and regulatory reviews.”We’re applying our 90 years of knowledge of corn biology to develop the next generation of high-quality waxy corn hybrids for the benefit of the entire value chain from growers to processors and end users,” said Neal Gutterson, vice president, research and development for DuPont Pioneer. “Starting with an identity-preserved product as our initial CRISPR-Cas offering allows us to lay a solid foundation for success of future larger volume products from this plant breeding innovation.” Pioneer is the leading supplier of waxy corn hybrids globally. In the United States, about a half-million acres of waxy corn are grown each year; however, they traditionally yield less than non-waxy corn hybrids. Waxy corn produces a high amylopectin starch content, which is milled for a number of everyday consumer food and non-food uses including processed foods, adhesives and high-gloss paper. Waxy corn is typically grown on contract through a closed-loop production system commonly referred to as “identity-preserved”.
Johnston“The next generation of waxy hybrids developed with CRISPR-Cas will represent a step-change in how efficiently we bring elite genetic platforms of high-yielding waxy corn to our customers,” Gutterson said.The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently published its response to Pioneer’s “Regulated Article Letter of Inquiry” stating that it does not consider next-generation waxy corn developed with CRISPR-Cas enabled advanced breeding technology as regulated by USDA Biotechnology Regulatory Services.”DuPont Pioneer believes that CRISPR-Cas as an advanced plant breeding tool holds great promise for maintaining the world’s ability to produce an abundant and healthy food supply. The USDA’s confirmation is an important first step toward clarifying the U.S. regulatory landscape and the development of seed products with CRISPR-Cas technology,” said Gutterson. “We continue to consult with global regulatory bodies and government agencies in order to understand the potential regulations around the world.”Pioneer is establishing a CRISPR-Cas enabled advanced breeding platform to develop seed products for greater environmental resiliency with characteristics like disease resistance and drought tolerance, in addition to advancing the development of improved hybrid systems. The technology has applicability for all Pioneer crops of interest.”This is just the beginning: We believe the true value of this important innovation in plant breeding will be achieved through active engagement with customers, academia, governments, NGOs and public research institutes to develop new solutions to the toughest agricultural challenges,” added Gutterson. “Pioneer has a long history of collaboration and broadly advancing science and is open to entering further collaborations which would contribute to developing CRISPR-Cas technology across all crops and geographies for the greater good.” Pioneer previously announced strategic agreements for research collaborations and intellectual property (IP) licenses with Vilnius University and with Caribou Biosciences. These are combined with DuPont’s own IP, technology capabilities, infrastructure and scientific expertise that are being applied in order to advance CRISPR-Cas.

Micron Launches New Product Category of Low-Standby-Power

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 10 febbraio 2012

Boise Idaho, CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Micron Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq:MU) is extending its legacy of memory leadership by introducing a new product category of low-power DDR3 solutions targeted at the tablet and ultrathin markets. These 2-gigabit (Gb) and 4Gb “DDR3Lm” solutions focus on low self-refresh power (IDD6) for longer battery life, while maintaining the high performance and cost effectiveness of PC DRAM. The first 2Gb DDR3Lm will provide up to 50 percent self-refresh power savings versus standard 2Gb DDR3L while driving performance up to -1600 MT/s when needed. Micron’s 4Gb DDR3Lm product delivers the same optimized power efficiency as the 2Gb part, with a reduced chip count that is ideally suited for ultrathin and tablet customers. Both 2Gb and 4Gb DDR3Lm will be adopted into Micron’s 30-nanometer (nm) class to further optimize the power and performance features, with the 4Gb device hitting a 3.7mA IDD6 target in standby mode, yet still supporting speeds up to -1866 MT/s. “Power reduction is becoming ever more critical in the fast growing ultrathin markets. Micron’s expertise with traditional PC memory requirements enables these markets to enjoy high performance targets and optimal cost efficiencies,” said Robert Feurle, vice president for Micron’s DRAM marketing. “The combination of our commitment to customer collaboration and dedication to leading the way in DRAM technologies has proven highly successful, and this new class of 30nm DRAM continues to deliver on that promise.” “As computing becomes more and more mobile, longer battery life is increasingly valuable to end users,” said Geof Findley, Intel’s senior memory enabling manager. “The reduced standby power consumption of low-power memory is a move in the right direction.”
Sampling of Micron’s new DDR3Lm low-power product line begins now, with volume production on 30nm class devices expected to begin in 2Q’12. For more information about DDR3Lm, visit http://www.micron.com/products/dram/ddr3-sdram.

Le tre piattaforme di exchange-traded product

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 21 luglio 2010

ETF Securities ha pubblicato le statistiche relative alla prima metà del 2010, che riguardano le tre piattaforme di exchange-traded product (commodity, valute ed ETF azionari). Ecco di seguito le maggiori evidenze al 30 giugno 2010: ETFS Physical Gold è stato in rialzo del 34% in euro. L’oro è diventato una delle migliori asset class di ETF Securities durante la prima metà del 2010 dato che gli investitori stanno cercando beni rifugio dall’aumento del rischio sovrano e bancario in Europa. Nello stesso periodo, l’indice FTSE ha registrato una flessione del 14% e l’Euro Stoxx 50 una del 20% in dollari statunitensi. L’attivo gestito (AUM) degli ETC di ETF Securities sull’oro fisico ha raccolto 2,6 miliardi di dollari statunitensi, raggiungendo adesso un totale di 11,4 miliardi di dollari statunitensi. Si tratta di una crescita del 30% da fine dicembre ed è l’aumento più grande mai registrato su base semestrale. Gli ETC di ETF Securities sull’oro fisico, che detengono 9,3 milioni di once a fine di giugno 2010, rappresentano un primato a livello europeo e sono secondi a livello mondiale per oro corrispettivo sottostante. Le società attive nell’estrazione aurifera hanno beneficiato della ripresa del prezzo dell’oro con ETFX DAXglobal Gold Mining Fund in crescita del 28% in euro nella prima metà del 2010. Dopo una performance particolarmente forte registrata nel primo trimestre, la debolezza dei mercati azionari mondiali ha eroso alcuni dei profitti realizzati nel secondo trimestre 2010. Gli ETC sulle valute hanno beneficiato dello spostamento dell’avversione al rischio, con ETFS Long JPY Short EUR in crescita del 23% nella prima metà del 2010 dato che gli investitori si sono adoperati per liquidare attività economiche di rischio finanziate in Yen giapponesi. Un altro dei maggiori beneficiari dell’aumento dell’avversione al rischio è stato ETFS Long USD Short EUR in crescita del 17%. Gli investitori infatti hanno chiuso le posizioni in euro posizionandosi sul dollaro statunitense visto che la crisi greca ha alimentato largamente le preoccupazioni del debito statale in Europa.
ETFS Physical Palladium ha registrato nella prima metà del 2010 una crescita del 11% in dollari statunitensi dato la costante e ingente domanda di automobili in Cina, la penuria di scorte e un consensus generale sul fatto che le riserve di platino della Russia potrebbero essere più basse rispetto a quanto precedentemente previsto.  Gli ETC di ETF Securities hanno registrato 361 milioni di afflussi nella prima metà del 2010, guidati dalla forte domanda proveniente dagli Stati Uniti dove ETF Securities ha quotato i primi prodotti su platino e palladio fisico ad inizio gennaio.
ETFS Physical Silver ha registrato un’ottima performance nella prima metà del 2010, con una crescita del 10%. L’ETC sull’argento fisico ha beneficiato del suo status di riserva di valore e bene rifugio simile all’oro. La forte performance di oro, argento e palladio ha fatto in modo che ETFS Physical PM Basket (che include oro, argento, platino e palladio) completasse la performance dei metalli preziosi con un  aumento del 10,4%.

Demand for Surelease has accelerated due to the increasing preference for multiparticulate dosage forms, as well as its use in nutritional enteric applications. Nutrateric(R), nutritional enteric coating system (Colorcon patented), based on Surelease and an alginate pore former, has become the product-of-choice for fish oil, garlic and other dietary supplement products. James Coward, vice president of corporate development, had this to say about the expansion. “The Surelease capacity expansion was done as part of our continued commitment to our customers, and as part of our investment in our modified release technologies.”  Colorcon is a world leader in the development, supply and technical support of formulated products for the pharmaceutical industry. Its core businesses include film coatings, modified release technologies, functional excipients and tablet design services. Colorcon has 18 technical service laboratories globally and more than 1200 employees exclusively dedicated to its pharmaceutical customer base.
