Abbott says researchers in the Democratic Republic of Congo have made findings that could lead to HIV vaccineMedical device, diagnostics and generic drug maker Abbott said Tuesday a team of scientists has found an unusually high number of people in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with controlled HIV and said they could be a key to advancing therapies, or even developing a vaccine. The people in question test positive for HIV antibodies, but have low to non-detectable viral load counts, without using antiretroviral treatment, Abbott said in a statement. The findings were published in EbioMedicine, part of the prestigious medical journal The Lancet. They "may help researchers uncover biological trends within this population that could lead to advancements in HIV treatments -- and potentially vaccines," said the statement. Researchers from Abbott, working with Johns Hopkins University, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the Université Protestante au Congo found the prevalence of HIV elite controllers was 2.7% to 4.3% in the DRC, compared with 0.1% to 2.0% worldwide. "The finding of a large group of HIV elite controllers in the DRC is significant considering that HIV is a life-long, chronic condition that typically progresses over time," said Tom Quinn, M.D., director of Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health, and chief of the International HIV/AIDS Research Section of the NIAID. "There have been rare instances of the infection not progressing in individuals prior to this study, but this high frequency is unusual and suggests there is something interesting happening at a physiological level in the DRC that's not random." Abbott shares were slightly higher premarket, but have gained 50% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 26%.

Cinemark posts wider-than-expected Q4 loss but revenue beats estimatesCinemark Holdings Inc. posted a wider-than-expected loss for the fourth quarter, as many of its theaters operated at limited capacity during the coronavirus pandemic, but revenue beat consensus estimates. The Plano, Texas-based cinema chain posted a loss of $239.3 million, or $2.03 a share, in the quarter, after earnings of $26.3 million, or 22 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Revenue fell to $98.2 million from $788.8 million. The FactSet consensus was for a loss per share of $1.46 and revenue of $79.8 million. "It is almost unfathomable that one year ago, we were reporting Cinemark's fifth consecutive year of record results with the North American industry touting the second-highest grossing box office of all-time," Chief Executive Mark Zoradi said in a statement. The company's financial results continue to be "significantly impacted" by COVID, which led to its theaters being closed for an extended period starting last March. The company reopened domestic cinemas in June and international ones in August, after enhanced cleaning. As of Dec. 31, it had 217 domestic and 129 international theaters open at limited hours. Zoradi said the company is confident business will return once the virus is contained and noted the strong performance of Chinese cinemas during the recent Lunar holiday. Shares were up 1.5% premarket, but have fallen 11% in the last 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 23%.
