The best business models solve problems and are scalable. In this context, the healthcare sector is particularly interesting. The world's population has recently reached 7.8 billion people and for this reason solutions can meet a large potential market with users. Cross-border solutions are needed not only for pandemics, but also for diseases that are not mentioned in the mass media but are nevertheless of great importance. A successful market launch is of equal interest to those affected and investors.

Thin Film Solutions for a Mass Market

XPhyto from Canada announced yesterday that its German subsidiary Vektor Pharma TF GmbH has successfully incorporated peptide biosensors into the group's oral dissolvable thin film (ODF) technology. Together with its partner 3a-Diagnostics GmbH, the company is now developing pathogen-specific ODF biosensors for infectious diseases, including pandemic threats, the company announced.

"Successful incorporation of 3a's peptide biosensors into Vektor's ODF platform represents a significant technical milestone on the pathway to commercialization," Hugh Rogers, XPhyto CEO said in a statement. "This was a critical step that unlocks a pipeline of potential biosensor screening products."

3a biosensor screening tests have been developed for bacterial and viral infectious diseases, including influenza A, scarlet fever and periodontitis. The market is therefore large and further pandemic-focused biosensors are planned and developed, especially for coronavirus, swine flu and avian flu, according to the announcement. The partnership at product level therefore has potential. The market value of XPhyto is EUR 115.1 million.

Products for the Chinese market

Teva recently announced that the Chinese Food and Drug Administration has approved Austedo for the treatment of chorea associated with Huntington's disease and late dyskinesia in adults. According to the announcement, the company will independently market the drug Austedo in China. This follows the launch of the specialty drug Treanda on the Chinese market.

"We look forward to bringing more of the essential medicines in our portfolio to patients in China, and to fuel organic growth and expand our presence in this important market," said Gianfranco Nazzi of Teva, who is responsible for international markets. The market value of the company is around EUR 10.9 billion.

Licensing for 127 countries

Last week Gilead signed a license agreement with Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd. for the registration, manufacture and sale of the antiviral drug Remdesivir. The product Remdesivir became known because it can be used to treat the current coronavirus. The contract covers a total of 127 countries, but an official approval for the marketing of Remdesivir in the respective country still has to be obtained from Dr. Reddy's.

In May 2020, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency use authorization for Gilead's antiviral drug Remdesivir for the treatment of Covid-19. Under the non-exclusive license agreement, Dr. Reddy's will receive a technology transfer from Gilead for the manufacture of Remdesivir. Gilead's most recent market capitalization was approximately EUR 82.4 billion and this makes the company one of the heavyweights in the industry.

MorphoSys, Sativa Wellness Group, CureVac: Healthcare investments of tomorrow

  • Healthcare

The healthcare sector is facing a reassessment. For years, especially in Germany, health care has been "fiddled with" - a reform here, a change there, but in basic terms, little has changed in the system in recent years. With the new federal government, things could start to move. Regardless of ideological trench warfare, observers can state, especially under the impression of the pandemic, that innovative treatment methods and preventive care are the most important trends for the future, along with the digitization of the healthcare system. In this context, we present three companies and highlight their opportunities.

The back-and-forth surrounding AstraZeneca's vaccine has unsettled many people. But the discussion about extremely rare side effects also shows: Vaccines and drugs are subject to strict regulations and the healthcare system is strictly regulated. While pharmaceutical companies must always expect setbacks, especially in accelerated approval procedures, the situation is different for suppliers of medical technology or consumables. We present three stocks that are benefiting from rising healthcare spending.

We all know that one's health is the most important thing. But from time to time, this truism slips out of focus. The pandemic has shown that neither fame nor money can protect you from getting sick. A big step toward being healthy, however, can be made by trusting in research. The development of vaccines in record time has shown how great the potential is in science and the pharmaceutical industry. New test methods are continually coming onto the market. Three shares show that there is money to be made on the stock market from these developments.
