When is a billion-dollar deal a bad omen? Has Wall Street gone overboard on Ozempic? And how do you edit a chicken?
We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. We discuss Bristol Myers Squibb’s multibillion-dollar acquisition of Mirati Therapeutics and what it means for a biotech sector still in a slump. We also explain the latest news in the life sciences, including Wall Street’s freakout over GLP-1, CRISPR’ing animals, and the latest in the NASH saga.
For more on what we cover, here’s the news on Mirati; here’s more on biotech venture capital; here’s the latest on Alnylam Pharmaceuticals; here’s more on NASH; here’s the story on xenotransplantation; here’s more on genome-edited chickens; here’s where you can find episodes of Color Code; and here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast.
