BMS announced more good news from mid-stage study with ipilimumab with positive stock results to boot

Once again I see another instance in news this morning (March 29th) of a failure in clinicals for a NSCLC therapy. This time we're talking about Antisoma's trial biting the dust and its subsequent 72% drop in market value as a result. See the pharmaletter ( http://bit.ly/bhG5pG ) and In the Pipeline (http://seekingalpha.com/article/196079-antisoma-s-phase-iii-disaster) for more information.

No sooner do I make a positive post on treatment of NSCLC than I see another potential downer. EMD Merck just suspended trials on its Stimulvax (BLP25 liposome vaccine) due to a severe adverse effect in a patient with multiple myeloma.

However, the suspension also affects patient recruitment in two other Phase III trials (START & INSPIRE) Merck is running for NSCLC.
