YEREVAN, Armenia — Armenia's prime minister accused top military officers on Thursday of attempting a coup after they demanded he step down, adding fuel to monthslong protests calling for his resignation following the nation's defeat in a conflict with Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. The demonstrations began immediately after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan signed a Nov. 10 peace deal that saw Azerbaijan reclaim control over large parts of Nagorno-Karabakh and surrounding areas that had been held by Armenian forces for more than a quarter-century. Those protests have gathered pace this week, and the feud with his top military commanders has weakened Pashinyan's position. The immediate trigger for the standoff was Pashinyan’s decision to oust the first deputy chief of the military's General Staff, a group of the armed forces' top commanders. In response, the General Staff called for Pashinyan's resignation — but the prime minister doubled down and dismissed the chief of the General Staff. He described the military's statement as a “military coup attempt” and urged troops to only listen to his orders. He also called on his backers to come to the streets and then later walked among them, using a loudspeaker to rally support. “We need a conversation, not a confrontation,” he said. Pashinyan denied rumours that he was preparing to flee the country. Supporters of Pashinyan and the opposition engaged in sporadic scuffles on the streets of Yerevan on Thursday. Russia's government voiced concern over the tensions but emphasized that Armenia needs to sort it out itself. “We are calling for calm and believe that the situation should remain in the constitutional filed,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. The crisis has its roots in Armenia's humiliating defeat in heavy fighting with Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh that erupted in late September and lasted 44 days. A Russian-brokered agreement ended the conflict in which the Azerbaijani army routed Armenian forces — but only after more than 6,000 people died on both sides. Pashinyan has defended the peace deal as a painful but necessary move to prevent Azerbaijan from overrunning the entire Nagorno-Karabakh region, which lies within Azerbaijan but was under the control of ethnic Armenian forces backed by Armenia since a separatist war there ended in 1994. Opposition groups have dismissed that argument. On Thursday, opposition demonstrators swarmed the streets of the Armenian capital, chanting “Nikol, you traitor!” and “Nikol, resign!” They paralyzed traffic all around Yerevan. Despite the simmering public anger over the military defeat, Pashinyan has manoeuvred to shore up his rule and the protests died down amid the winter's cold. But the opposition demonstrations resumed with new vigour this week — and then came the spat with top officers. Pashinyan fired the deputy chief of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Tiran Khachatryan, earlier this week after he derided the prime minister's claim that just 10% of Russia-supplied Iskander missiles that Armenia used in the conflict exploded on impact. The General Staff responded Thursday with a statement demanding Pashinyan's resignation and warned the government against trying to use force against the opposition demonstrators. Immediately after the statement, Pashinyan dismissed the General Staff chief, Col. Gen. Onik Gasparyan. ____ Associated Press writers Vladimir Isachenkov and Daria Litvinova in Moscow contributed to this report. Avet Demourian, The Associated Press
An expected dash by big corporations for offsets to meet their climate targets has prompted financial exchanges to launch carbon futures contracts to capitalise on what could be a multi-billion dollar market. Carbon offsets, generated by emissions reduction projects, such as tree planting or shifts to less polluting fuels, have struggled for years to gain credibility, but as climate action has become urgent, their market is expected to grow to as much as $50 billion by 2030. Among the major corporations that say they expect to use them to compensate for any emissions they cannot cut from their operations and products are Unilever, EasyJet, Royal Dutch Shell and BP, which all have climate targets.

(Nasdaq: SWTX), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on developing life-changing medicines for patients with severe rare diseases and cancer, today reported fourth quarter and full-year financial results for the period ended December 31, 2020 and provided an update on recent company developments. “2020 was a year characterized by strong performance for SpringWorks as we advanced our diversified targeted oncology portfolio, which currently spans 10 development programs across our three core focus areas: late-stage rare oncology, BCMA combinations in multiple myeloma and biomarker-defined metastatic solid tumors,” said Saqib Islam, Chief Executive Officer of SpringWorks. “Our clinical execution has set the stage for multiple important data readouts in 2021, including the interim ReNeu data announced this morning and topline data from our Phase 3 DeFi trial later this year, and our business development efforts have allowed us to pursue additional combination therapy programs, continuing to grow our portfolio of opportunities across a broad range of potentially high-value and high-unmet need oncology patient settings. We look forward to reporting on our progress throughout 2021.” Recent Business Highlights and Upcoming Milestones Late-Stage Rare Oncology In February 2021, SpringWorks reported interim data from the adult stratum of the ongoing potentially registrational Phase 2b ReNeu trial evaluating mirdametinib in pediatric and adult patients with NF1-associated plexiform neurofibromas. Of the first 20 adult patients enrolled, 50% had achieved an objective response, the primary endpoint of the study, as assessed by blinded independent central review, and 16 of these 20 patients (80%) remained on study as of the January 22, 2021 data cutoff. In addition, mirdametinib was generally well tolerated, with the majority of treatment-related adverse events (TRAE) being Grade 1 or 2 and only one Grade 3 TRAE reported; there have been no Grade 4 or 5 AEs reported. SpringWorks reported that the ReNeu trial has reached approximately 70% of its final enrollment target of 100 patients and the Company expects to complete enrollment of the ReNeu trial in the second half of 2021.SpringWorks expects to report topline data from the Phase 3 DeFi trial in the second half of 2021.Recruitment is ongoing in a Phase 2 study sponsored by the Children’s Oncology Group evaluating nirogacestat in pediatric patients with desmoid tumors. B-cell Maturation Antigen (BCMA) Combinations in Multiple Myeloma Enrollment is ongoing in a Phase 1b trial sponsored by GSK evaluating nirogacestat in combination with BLENREP (belantamab mafodotin-blmf), GSK’s anti-B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) antibody-drug conjugate, in adult patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma. Initial clinical data from this study are expected in 2021.Two collaborator-sponsored Phase 1 studies were initiated evaluating nirogacestat in combination with BCMA therapies: nirogacestat + Allogene’s ALLO-715 and nirogacestat + Janssen’s teclistamab. SpringWorks also expects that two additional collaborator-sponsored trials will initiate in the first half of 2021, as previously disclosed: nirogacestat + Pfizer’s elranatamab (PF‐06863135) and nirogacestat + Precision’s PBCAR269A. Biomarker-Defined Metastatic Solid Tumors Enrollment is ongoing in a Phase 1b/2 trial evaluating mirdametinib with BeiGene’s RAF dimer inhibitor, lifirafenib, in adult patients with RAS/RAF mutant and other MAPK pathway aberrant solid tumors. BeiGene is sponsoring this trial and SpringWorks and BeiGene expect to report initial clinical data in 2021.Enrollment is ongoing in a Phase 1 trial of BGB-3245 in adult patients with RAF mutant solid tumors. BGB-3245 is a selective RAF dimer inhibitor being developed by MapKure, LLC, a joint venture between SpringWorks and BeiGene. Initial clinical data from the MapKure-sponsored Phase 1 trial are expected in 2021.In December 2020, SpringWorks entered into a research collaboration agreement with Dr. Tatu Pantsar and Dr. Antti Poso at the University of Eastern Finland to conduct novel computational biology research to characterize the effector protein dynamics of different RAS mutations. The objective of the collaboration is to understand the biological consequences of KRAS-effector protein interactions and downstream oncogenic signaling with the goal of guiding patient selection strategies and exploring novel targets for future targeted therapy development. General Corporate In February 2021, a Notice of Allowance was received from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for Patent Application No. 16/886,622 (the ‘622 application) with composition of matter claims covering several polymorphic forms of nirogacestat, including the polymorphic form that is currently in clinical development, which is also covered by U.S. Patent 10,590,087 (the ‘087 patent, issued in March 2020). Pursuant to an existing worldwide license agreement with Pfizer, SpringWorks has exclusive rights to the patent issuing from the ‘622 application. The patent granting from the ‘622 application, as well as the ‘087 patent, will both expire in August 2039.In October 2020, SpringWorks completed a follow-on public offering that raised $269.5 million in net proceeds, which included the underwriters’ full exercise of their option to purchase additional shares of common stock.In October 2020, SpringWorks and Jazz Pharmaceuticals entered into an asset purchase and exclusive license agreement under which Jazz acquired SpringWorks’ fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor program.

The evaluation is part of the Phase 1/2/3 trial and will study a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, BNT162b2, at 30 µg that will be given to Phase 1 participants to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a booster vaccineDiscussions with regulatory authorities are ongoing regarding an additional registration-enabling study using an mRNA vaccine with a variant sequence; this would provide a flexible solution for rapidly adapting the vaccine for use against the B.1.351 lineage or other new strains that may emerge as possible immune escape virus variants Based on in-vitro studies conducted to date and observations from real world evidence, the Companies have not observed changes to neutralizing antibody levels that would predict a significant reduction in protection provided by two doses of BNT162b2 New York and Mainz, Germany, February 25, 2021 — Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) and BioNTech SE (Nasdaq: BNTX) announced today they have begun an evaluation of the safety and immunogenicity of a third dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (BNT162b2) to understand the effect of a booster on immunity against COVID-19 caused by the circulating and potential newly emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants. The study will draw upon participants from the Phase 1 study in the United States who will be offered the opportunity to receive a 30 µg booster of the current vaccine 6 to 12 months after receiving their initial two-dose regimen. The study is part of the Companies’ clinical development strategy to determine the effectiveness of a third dose against evolving variants. Separately, in order to be prepared for any potential future strain changes, Pfizer and BioNTech are in ongoing discussions with regulatory authorities, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency, regarding a registration-enabling clinical study to evaluate a variant-specific vaccine having a modified mRNA sequence. This study would use a new construct of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine based on the B.1.351 lineage, first identified in South Africa. This could position the Companies to update the current vaccine quickly if the need arises to protect against COVID-19 from circulating strains. In alignment with the updated guidance issued by the FDA regarding emergency use of vaccines to prevent COVID-19 which provides recommendations for evaluating a modified vaccine to address variants, the Companies are hoping to pursue the validation of future modified mRNA vaccines with a regulatory pathway similar to what is currently in place for flu vaccines. “While we have not seen any evidence that the circulating variants result in a loss of protection provided by our vaccine, we are taking multiple steps to act decisively and be ready in case a strain becomes resistant to the protection afforded by the vaccine. This booster study is critical to understanding the safety of a third dose and immunity against circulating strains,” said Albert Bourla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Pfizer. “At the same time, we are making the right investments and engaging in the appropriate conversations with regulators to help position us to potentially develop and seek authorization for an updated mRNA vaccine or booster if needed.” “Our proactive clinical development strategy aims to create the foundation today, that will enable us to address the challenges of tomorrow. We want to be prepared for different scenarios,” said Ugur Sahin, CEO and Co-founder of BioNTech. “Therefore, we will be evaluating a second booster in the current regimen as well as preparing for a potential rapid adaption of the vaccine to address new variants which might escape the current version of our mRNA-based vaccine. The flexibility of our proprietary mRNA vaccine platform allows us to technically develop booster vaccines within weeks, if needed. This regulatory pathway is already established for other infectious diseases like influenza. We take these steps in order to ensure a long-term immunity against the virus and its variants.” Administering a third dose will provide an early assessment of the safety of a third dose of BNT162b2, as well as its immunogenicity. The study will evaluate up to 144 Phase 1 participants in two age cohorts, 18-55 and 65-85 years of age. This study will include trial participants who received the two doses in the Phase 1 study 6 to 12 months ago in order to assess the boostability of BNT162b2. Thus, the study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of a third vaccination irrespective of the level of antibody titers of the trial participant. Participants will be assessed at the time they receive the third dose, then one week and one month after, and Pfizer and BioNTech plan to study the ability of the sera from those participants to neutralize SARS-CoV-2 strains of interest. The participants will continue being followed in the study for up to 2 years as originally planned. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine has not been approved or licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but has been authorized for emergency use by FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to prevent Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) for use in individuals 16 years of age and older.
