ISIS Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Analyst Notes
On March 31, 2014, ISIS Pharmaceuticals, Inc (ISIS) reported final results from its Phase 2 study of ISIS-APOCIIIRx in patients with severely high triglycerides on stable doses of fibrates. According to ISIS, the study showed that those treated with ISIS-APOCIIIRx garnered average reductions of up to 71% in apolipoprotein C-III (apoC-III) and up to 64% in triglycerides, and average increases of up to 52% in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), the 'good' cholesterol. Additionally, the lipoprotein particle analysis showed significant dose-dependent reductions in the number of very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) particles and significant increases in the number of HDL particles. Commenting on the results of this study, Joseph L. Witztum, M.D., Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego, said, "In this new study, ISIS-APOCIIIRx was shown to robustly lower both plasma apoC-III and triglycerides, and raise HDL cholesterol levels, even in subjects who were already on standard doses of fibrate therapy. This ability of ISIS-APOCIIIRx to positively impact these parameters should significantly enhance the profile of the drug to treat patients with severely elevated triglycerides."

IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. Analyst Notes
On March 27, 2014, IDEXX Laboratories, Inc. (IDEXX) announced the introduction of new diagnostics for safeguarding equine health. According to the Company, the new diagnostics will help equine veterinarians to quickly and proactively diagnose individuals or herds and enable them to more proactively manage the health of the horses under their care. The new diagnostics include three new RealPCR™ reproductive panels, the Strangles RealPCR™ Screen and a RealPCR test for Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis, or pigeon fever. Commenting on the launch, Christian Leutenegger, Head of Molecular Diagnostics at IDEXX, remarked, "The equine RealPCR tests for reproductive health and pigeon fever and the expanded test option for strangles fill an important void in the diagnostic landscape for equine practitioners. Abortion in the equine industry is a sensitive topic; it leads to significant financial loss for mare owners." Leutenegger added, "The three new reproductive panels help veterinarians rapidly assess the infectious components in a lost pregnancy and our PCR strangles panel covers three important infectious organisms compared to just one. These advances, along with our pigeon fever test, improve the diagnostic ability of equine veterinarians to detect clinical infection earlier, better manage outbreaks and better educate clients to strengthen those relationships.

Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
