Moderna Tx announced their first data from MRNA-1273 as a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2. In this video, I breakdown the press release and talk about how they missed the mark with providing only descriptive information. I then talk about Verastem Oncology (#VSTM), a company looking to treat cancer. Their one approved asset, Copiktra, is indicated for some 3L Non-Hodgin Lymphomas. But, they are moving through Phase 1 with another combo asset (Defactinib + VS-6766), trying to treat a variety of solid tumors, especially non small cell lung cancer.
