Sanofi

Early trial data of a Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline SARS-CoV-2 vaccine indicates an insufficient immune response among older participants, according to Reuters.

The drugmaker has a small molecule drug called venglustat under Phase II development for Parkinson's disease patients with a specific genetic mutation.

Sanofi has been hit with a nearly $12 million fine for supporting a charity that covered the costs of co-pays for Medicare patients taking an expensive drug sold by the firm.

This week's news includes Illumina, Becton Dickinson, PerkinElmer, iGene Laboratory, Novacyt, Twist Bioscience, Lustgarten Foundation, and GlaxoSmithKline.

The researchers will combine genomic analysis with environmental and mobile device data from 1,200 participants to try to better understand the disease.

The Lantern Project will screen for patients who may be suffering from Gaucher disease, Fabry disease, Pompe disease, MPS I, or ASMD, and offer confirmatory DNA testing.

Linguamatics' I2E natural language processing engine helps Sanofi match HLA alleles with multiple sclerosis and associated drug treatments.

The firms will use Adaptive's ClonoSeq assay to assess minimal residual disease in multiple myeloma patients treated with Sanofi's isatuximab.

The partnership includes biopharmaceutical, life science, and non-profit organizations, as well as several US government agencies.

Berg will use its Interrogative Biology platform in order to assess potential biomarkers of seasonal influenza vaccination outcomes.
