Bio Roundup: ASH Wrap, CRISPR Baby Fallout, Moderna’s Record IPO

The biggest yearly meeting for blood disease research has come and gone, and yet the stories to come out of the American Society of Hematology’s gathering in San Diego represent just a fraction of what happened in biopharma this week.Even if ASH wasn’t on your radar, the CRISPR baby saga—the apparent birth of gene edited twin girls in China that shocked the life sciences world a few weeks ago—rolled on. One massive buyout was signed, and another even bigger one inched closer to being finalized....

Bio Roundup: Prices on TV, Novartis Hearts Radio, Warp Drive’s End

Two new battlegrounds emerged this week in the nation’s ongoing drug pricing debate. The first involved television: The federal government hopes that blaring prices in TV ads will essentially pressure drug makers into lowering them, and the pharma lobby fired back. The second centered around a group of pricey new migraine drugs: The nation’s largest drug-pricing middleman used a familiar muscle-flexing tactic to grab some discounts, and kicked one drug in the class to the curb as a result.Elsew...

I Have Voices that Told Me I Need Help; I Woke Up to Find Multiple Notes on My Wall Telling Me to Find Help

I have voices inside my head that tell me what to do and if i don’t listen i begin to have a terrible headache and start to feel drowsy (if it’s severe I lose control over the body and someone else takes over) . Personalities that live inside my head take over the body and I am unable to come out during those times. Some of them have a name and appearance. I don’t have much memories of my childhood and if try to remember I begin to have a terrible migraine so I avoid them. The voices are always ...

Bio Roundup: ASCO Abstracts, Migraine Drug Prices & “Blueprint” Fallout

There’s nothing abstract about a 20 percent jump in a company’s stock price. But yeah, that happened to Loxo Oncology when it released data previews for its American Society for Clinical Oncology presentations; the meeting starts in two weeks in Chicago. Wednesday was ASCO abstract day, and we’ll round up the headliners below, all with caveats that these early peeks are not peer-reviewed and could be updated in a couple weeks. It’s even worth asking whether they’re worth writing about at ...

Diagnosis & Treatment of Meningismus – Chronic Headaches in Children

Source: Atlas Spinal Care In the modern day, when children present with headaches, they are usually believed to be primary headaches, whether they be tension or migraine related. This can lead to signs of meningismus being ignored and or not followed through on in the majority of cases, and so doctors proceed from the idea that the neurological side of the children they are looking at is completely normal. Meningeal signs in children who present with headaches are in fact much more common than...

Bio Roundup: Lung Cancer Questions, Migraine Races, HIV Battle & More

The top biopharma story of the week involves the fast-moving field of lung cancer, which, as we’ve written previously, has several key trials reading out in 2018. A big domino fell this week: data from a two-drug immunotherapy combination developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb. But the results, touted as positive, left more questions than answers. First, Bristol changed the trial’s structure midstream. Second, it still hasn’t proven whether the combination helps patients more than its immunoth...

New Migraine Drugs May Help Prevent Headaches Before They Start

One in seven Americans suffers from migraines, and medications currently prescribed to prevent them—like blood-pressure drugs and antidepressants—don’t work for many people. But two new studies offer hope for those who haven’t respond well to existing treatments. In late-stage clinical trials, a new type of drug reduced migraine frequency and severity by up to 50%…

Minima, a tiny 4px typeface, certain to annoy many

There are typefaces that attempt to remain legible at ludicrously small sizes. Ken Perlin's Tinyfont attempts to do so while retaining traditional letterforms, putting LCD subpixels to clever use. There are various 3x5 pixel fonts for those who prefer the crisp purity of the traditional pixel, and prior attempts at the holy grail of a legible 3x3 nerd font. Minima is an effort to make the perfect 4x4 pixel font, allowing itself a little more space but also going step further toward abstrac...

With Another Migraine Drug Bet, Lilly Snaps Up CoLucid For $960M

Eli Lilly may have dealt a migraine drug called lasmiditan to CoLucid Pharmaceuticals 12 years ago, but the Indianapolis giant has clearly kept an eye on it, and now wants more than just some royalties if the treatment succeeds in clinical testing this year. Lilly (NASDAQ: LLLY) will acquire Cambridge, MA-based CoLucid (NASDAQ: CLCD) in an all-cash deal worth $960 million, or $46.50 per share, a roughly 32 percent premium to the company’s $34.90 closing price.

You’ve probably seen the Internet memes. “When 2016 started, I looked like this. [Insert picture of young Leo DiCaprio.] Now I look like this.

From Drugs to Data, Student Founders at Rice, UH Make Their Pitches

Houston—For the Bayou Startup Showcase, the third time proved to be the charm. Wednesday evening’s demo day of the student startup programs from the University of Houston and Rice University showed a certain maturity, a gelling of operations both in terms of the joint summer accelerator and in the startups themselves. The pitches this year were polished, probably the best cohort in the four classes I’ve seen. The entrepreneurs clearly stated their product and defined their potential custome...

Could Childhood Emotional Abuse Lead to Migraines Later in Life?

Say what?! It isn’t an exaggeration to say that people who get migraines suffer. Migraines are more intense than regular headaches and can last for hours or days. Any movement, bright lights or noises can make the pain worse. When you’re having a migraine you might feel nauseous or have to vomit. Some people only occasionally get migraines, while others seem to get them all the time. And since they’re so debilitating, you may miss work or an important event because all you want is for the pain ...
