A Brighter Decade Ahead for Biotech - Equity Research Featuring Dendreon Corp. and Human Genome Sciences, Inc.

Mar 01, 2011, 09:00 ET from World Street Fundamentals

HONG KONG, March 1 /PRNewswire/ - Today, www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com released its industry report highlighting Dendreon Corp. (NASDAQ: DNDN) and Human Genome Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: HGSI). Investors from around the world are invited to view fundamental and technical analysis at www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com.

Biotech is enabling creation of new drugs at a faster pace than the traditional pharmaceutical model and some believe that after a decade of mediocre performance it is approaching an inflection point. Companies are much more conducive to focusing on productivity and the sector is showing signs of being back to top growth by 2013 due to the opportunity emerging markets have created.

World Street Fundamentals has highlighted Dendreon for its lead product, Provenge (sipuleucel-T). The vaccine is designed to target a prostate cancer that is expressed in more than 90 % of all prostate cancers.  Once known as one of the riskiest plays in the pharmaceutical world, Dendreon is now reaping the rewards of millions invested in the infrastructure for Provenge before FDA approval was granted. Recent setbacks for competitor AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) and its discontinuation of a phase III study on zibotentan, is also more good news for Dendreon's Provenge. To read the report on Dendreon Corp. (NASDAQ: DNDN), visit www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com.

Human Genome Sciences was another big mover in 2009 when it announced it reached successful endpoints in both of its Benlysta Phase III studies. Benlysta is an experimental drug for the treatment of lupus, an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks its own tissues. An estimated 322,000 Americans had systemic lupus erythematosus, the most common form and the one for which Benlysta may be approved.
