Gilead, Teva, XPhyto - Global marketing potential

  • Healthcare

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.


Conflict of interest & risk note

In accordance with §34b WpHG we would like to point out that Apaton Finance GmbH as well as partners, authors or employees of Apaton Finance GmbH may hold long or short positions in the aforementioned companies and that there may therefore be a conflict of interest. Apaton Finance GmbH may have a paid contractual relationship with the company, which is reported on in the context of the Apaton Finance GmbH Internet offer as well as in the social media, on partner sites or in e-mail messages. Further details can be found in our Conflict of Interest & Risk Disclosure.

BioNTech, Evotec, EXMceuticals - which stocks have the potential to double?

  • Healthcare

Experienced investors assume that the DAX, Germany's leading index, will still reach new highs in 2020. One of the best-known supporters of this scenario is the asset manager Dr. Jens Ehrhardt. Rising markets are supported by the measures taken by central banks and politicians - it is de facto the consequence of the increase in the money supply. This expected development will be of particular interest to those investors who have so far been on the sidelines and have to position themselves or reallocate.

Memphasys, Moderna, Paion - Investments in solutions with potential

  • Healthcare

Biotech companies around the world employ scientists and physicians to study the causes of diseases. The research and development of medical products and solutions usually involves a large number of tests and takes a correspondingly long time. The longer and more extensive this process is, the more capital these companies require from investors. In the race to bring to market preparations or products that improve people's well-being or fulfill desires, the providers of solutions usually have great sales potential and investors may be bought out through a takeover.
