An experimental Johnson & Johnson vaccine completely prevented HIV infection in half of monkeys that got the shot and then were exposed to high doses of an aggressive virus, results that spurred the company to test the vaccine in people, academic and company researchers said on Thursday. The international trial is underway in 400 healthy volunteers in the United States, East Africa, South Africa and Thailand. It is the first time since Merck's failed 2007 trial that a major pharmaceutical company has spo
As Iran nears a deal to ease oil sanctions after almost two years of talks, selling more crude remains a long way off. The nation’s goal of increasing exports 50 percent as soon as restrictions are lifted won’t be fulfilled, say Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Bank of America Corp. and Societe Generale SA.

Shrinking tin stocks, dwindling supplies from Myanmar and new Indonesian rules to curb exports are at last creating conditions for bulls who for some time have expected to see higher prices. But the optimism is tinged with caution as much depends on whether top exporter Indonesia can limit its shipments abroad, something it has failed to do in recent months. That's one reason why benchmark tin prices on the London Metal Exchange (LME), at around $15,000 a tonne, are down about 25 percent since early Janua
