Please don’t think I’m being flip. Even my friends who had both doses of the FDA approved vaccine have experienced breakthrough cases.
I’m sharing this with you not to cause alarm but to alert you to a great way to invest in the $753 billion biotech sector.
You may have heard about a key medical panel advising the US government has already called for Covid booster shots for some segments of the population after this first wave of vaccinations.
What’s more, biotech executives are now proposing to use gene-based vaccines to fight the seasonal flu. Before the pandemic, roughly 45% of the US population got flu shots every year. Doubtless, now with greater awareness of the risks, that number will grow.
More people protecting themselves against infectious diseases is great for the world and even better for a biotech leader that pioneered the entire genetic approach that received approval for a Covid vaccine in record time.
Imagine if all it took to treat a case of cancer was taking out the trash.
Now I want you to imagine that your body could do it all for you.
Hold that thought. Because a tech platform with that very task in mind is set to hit the market sooner than you think and will target a field set to be worth more than $160 billion.
Here’s the thing. Several life sciences firms are hard at work perfecting a new class of drugs known as “degraders.”
Let me explain. The root of many diseases lies in misguided proteins that bind together. So, the idea here is to come up with a new class of drugs that activate the body’s own molecular trash disposal systems.
This is one of the most exciting breakthroughs I’ve come across in many years. I believe it puts us close to the day when one pill can cure dozens, if not all, diseases.
You could forgive drug and biotech executives for having a bad case of target fixation.
After all, they do work in a field that is filled with time-consuming and expensive headaches.
Consider that the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), the world’s largest biotech trade organization, looked at 7,400 drug programs by 1,103 companies. They were investigating drug-approval rates.
The news was not good -just 9.6% of drugs scientists discover ever get approved for sale. That’s a one-in-ten shot.
With such daunting data, it’s no wonder that, even in a field already worth $1.2 trillion in global sales, industry leaders are on the lookout for ways to lower the cost of discovery and shorten time to market.
And with that goal in mind, I’ve uncovered a high-octane, large-cap firm that has become an essential ingredient in the drug sector’s success.
It’s a cloud-based leader in pharmaceutical efficiency that has a history of crushing the market by no small measure. It’s been doubling its earnings, on average, every 18 months…
