Oncothyreon (ONTY -20.7%) tanks today after presenting data as ASCO that showed Phase III trials of its investigational MUC1 antigen-specific cancer immunotherapy L-BLP25 didn't meet its primary objective. The trial was conducted by Merck Serono, a division of Merck (MRK -0.7%), under a license agreement with ONTY.

  • No, No, NO!!! Merck Serono is NOT a division of Merck (MRK) in the USA. It is a division of Merck KGaA in Germany. Everytime I see this simple, stupid mistake, I question the accuracy of anything in the article.

  • Absolutely correct p1llmann. This specific error happens over and over on SA. I would think that the editors would be aware of this issue by now.

  • But is it the death knell for ONTY? Should I give my shares as a birthday present to someone I don't really like? :-)
