16:38 EDTTKMRTekmira sees filing IND, Equiv for TKM-HBV in 2H14
The company said the following: "The single ascending dose portion of the TKM-Ebola Phase I clinical trial has been successfully completed in healthy human volunteers. As per the protocol maximum tolerated dose was established to be 0.3 mg/kg for healthy subjects without steroid premedication. In July, we received notice from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration that our TKM-Ebola program was on clinical hold. Subsequently, the company received written notice from the FDA modifying the clinical hold to a "partial clinical hold," allowing for the potential use of TKM-Ebola in individuals who have a confirmed or suspected Ebola infection. The company remains on clinical hold as it relates to the multiple-ascending dose portion of the Phase I clinical study in healthy volunteers with TKM-Ebola. The company expects this matter to be resolved by Q4 2014. Our therapeutic, TKM-Ebola, is currently an unapproved agent and the regulatory framework to support its use in Africa has not yet been established. Given the severity of the situation, we are carefully evaluating options for use of our investigational drug within accepted clinical and regulatory protocols. This includes discussions with government agencies and NGO's, including the WHO, in various countries on the potential use of TKM-Ebola to treat Ebola virus infected individuals. There can be no assurance that an appropriate framework for the use of this product will be found. We will continue to provide updates as necessary when clinical and regulatory pathways become confirmed. Within our TKM-PLK1 clinical trial targeting GI-NET and ACC patients, we saw an additional RECIST qualifying Partial Response, defined as a greater than 30 percent reduction in target tumor lesions. This patient is continuing on therapy and has achieved a 44 percent reduction in their target tumor mass, located outside of the liver. Furthermore, scans of the target tumor lesions demonstrate signs of necrosis, indicative of anti-tumor activity. We have initiated a Phase I/II clinical study of TKM-PLK1 in patients with Hepatocellular Carcinoma. We intend to file an Investigational New Drug application, or equivalent, in the second half of 2014, in order to advance our TKM-HBV program into a Phase I clinical study, with initial data available in 2015."

16:28 EDTTKMROn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in positive territory despite President Obama authorizing air strikes against the Islamic State militant group in northern Iraq in conjunction with a humanitarian effort. The early move higher stalled but the market then moved higher as reports confirmed that Russian military aircraft exercises near the Ukraine border had ended, as planned. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., productivity growth rose 2.5% in the second quarter, beating expectations for a rise of 1.6%. Second quarter unit labor costs, however, only increased 0.6%, which was below the 1% consensus forecast. Wholesale inventories increased 0.3% in June, and sales were up 0.2%, which were both below expectations. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of McDonald's (MCD) were fractionally higher despite the company reporting that its comparable store sales fell 2.5% in July, which was significantly worse than expected. The fast food giant stated that its U.S. comparable sales were down 3.2% in the month compared to the same month of last year and that comp sales in Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa dropped 7.3%. The APMEA region's comparable sales decline reflects the impact of food quality and safety issues at a supplier to McDonald's and other food companies in China which caused a "significant negative impact" to results in China, Japan and certain other markets, the company noted. As a result of the China supplier issue, the company's previously issued global comparable sales forecast for 2014 is now at risk, McDonald's added. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was chip maker NVIDIA (NVDA), which rose $1.54, or 8.82%, to $19.00 after the company’s second quarter profit and third quarter revenue outlook surpassed analysts’ consensus estimates. Also higher was small-cap Tekmira Pharmaceuticals (TKMR), which jumped $6.43, or 45.06%, to $20.70 after announcing that the FDA has verbally confirmed they have modified the full clinical hold placed on the TKM-Ebola Investigational New Drug Application to a partial clinical hold. Among the noteworthy losers was cereal maker Post Holdings (POST), which fell $7.08, or 15.91%, to $37.43 and was downgraded to Neutral from Buy at SunTrust after the company reported an adjusted net loss for its third quarter and agreed to acquire American Blanching Company for $128M. Also lower were shares of Ignite Restaurant (IRG), the owner of the Joe’s Crab Shack and Macaroni Grill brands, which fell $4.33, or 34.98%, to $8.05 after reporting second quarter results that missed analysts' expectations and having its shares downgraded at Raymond James and CL King. INDEXES: The Dow advanced 185.66, or 1.13%, to 16,553.93, the Nasdaq gained 35.93, or 0.83%, to 4,370.90, and the S&P 500 rose 22.02, or 1.15%, to 1,931.59.
