President Joe Biden's negotiators should use leverage gained against Iran by the previous U.S. administration to reach a better nuclear deal with Tehran in talks in Vienna, the United Arab Emirates' ambassador to Washington said. The UAE and Saudi Arabia had supported former President Donald Trump's decision in 2018 to quit the 2015 accord between Iran and world powers and reimpose harsh sanctions on their foe. "You (U.S.) are essentially in the driver's seat to get to a point to where we can address what I believe were shortcomings in JCPOA," envoy Yousef Al Otaiba said in a virtual discussion with Stanford University's Hoover Institution on Wednesday, using an acronym for the deal.

Dublin, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Ambulance Services Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report by Transport Vehicle (Ground, Water, Air), by Emergency Services (Emergency, Non-emergency), by Equipment, by Region, and Segment Forecasts, 2021 - 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The global ambulance services market size is expected to reach USD 67.7 billion by 2028 and expected to expand at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2021 to 2028. Rising medical tourism and an increasing number of road accidents and CVD cases are the key driving factors for the market.The growth of the market is due to favorable reimbursement policies in developed nations. In the U.S., Medicare covers both non-emergency and emergency ambulance services for medically necessary cases, if the supplier fulfills stipulated requirements. In some circumstances, Medicare also covers unscheduled and irregular non-emergency trips. Medicare covers 80.0% of the approved amount for emergency medical services and the remaining 20.0% is covered by the supplemental insurance policy of the patient. In New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina, for repetitive, non-emergency trips, patients need prior authorization from Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC). However, Medicare does not pay for ambulates (wheelchair-accessible vans that provide non-emergency transportation services).In Victoria, Australia, patients can avail of emergency medical services by securing membership with Ambulance Victoria, which offers emergency medical services at subsidized prices. Ambulance Tasmania provides free emergency medical services to residents of Tasmania. Residents of Queensland (Australia) are covered with the cost of emergency services across Australia, by the QLD state government. Similarly, in the U.K., the public healthcare system provides free emergency and non-emergency medical services. In addition, patients receive NHS funding for their treatment. In Germany, public health insurance (Gesetzliche Krankenversicherung) is compulsory for every citizen and this insurance also covers non-emergency and emergency medical services. Private health insurance (Private Krankenversicherung) is usually opted by those who have high yearly income. Ease of payment through reimbursement policies encourages patients to opt for emergency medical services more frequently, which is likely to bolster the growth of the market.Ambulance Services Market Report Highlights In terms of revenue, the ground ambulance segment held the largest share in 2020. The rising number of road accidents and increasing COVID-19 cases across the globe are major factors propelling segment growth.The emergency services segment held the largest market share in 2020 and is expected to grow fast over the forecast period due to the increasing number of CVDs.The Advanced Life Support (ALS) ambulance services segment held the largest market share in 2020. The growth of the segment is majorly driven by the increasing medical tourism across the globe.In Asia Pacific, the market is expected to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast period owing to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the region.

Matthew Moulding and his family established The Moulding Foundation in 2020.
(Bloomberg) -- Russian bonds sank the most since March last year and the ruble tumbled as the U.S. prepared to unveil sanctions on the nation’s local debt, a threat that has dimmed investor appetite for the market for years.The yield on ruble debt due in 10 years jumped the most since the peak of the pandemic-driven market turmoil. Stocks snapped three days of gains and the Russian currency dropped the most since December, erasing a rally spurred earlier in the week by U.S. President Joe Biden’s proposal for a summit with Vladimir Putin.The planned measures include barring U.S. financial institutions from participating in the primary market for new debt issued by the Russian central bank, Finance Ministry and sovereign wealth fund, according to a person familiar with the package of sanctions expected to be announced this week. The precise timing of the bond measures wasn’t clear, they said.READ MORE: U.S. to Impose Russia Sanctions Over Election, SolarWindsPenalties on government OFZ bonds would be “something new for the market,” said Iskander Lutsko, a strategist at ITI Capital in Moscow. “A recovery will depend on how the Russian authorities react -- if it’s muted, then markets will claw back ground, but if the planned meeting with Biden is canceled and there’s tough rhetoric, then the pressure will only increase.”Once seen as too big a risk for markets, the bond sanctions are becoming a reality after Russia’s troop buildup on the border with Ukraine sent tensions with the West spiraling. Penalties focusing on Russian individuals and entities could be announced as early as Thursday and come in retaliation for alleged Kremlin misconduct including the SolarWinds hack and efforts to disrupt the U.S. election.READ MORE: Putin’s Ukraine Gambit Turns Debt Sanctions Into a Real ThreatAnalysts at JP Morgan Chase & Co. downgraded the ruble and Russian bonds last week, citing the escalating tensions and the risk that U.S. investors might close long positions on OFZs.Russian officials say bond sanctions wouldn’t cause much damage to Russia’s financial markets because local banks and non-U.S. investors would step in to replace those forced to sell. A move to ban U.S. banks from buying new issues of Russian Eurobonds in 2019 did little to dent the Kremlin’s access to foreign funding.VTB Bank PJSC bought more than 70% of the local notes on offer in debt sales on Wednesday, which saw a record placement equivalent to almost $3 billion.State Backup“It is OFZ- and ruble-negative in the near-term,” ING Groep NV economist Dmitry Dolgin said from Moscow. “The market has been speculating on the likelihood of that for a couple of years, and since mid-2020 the perceived risk of sanctions went up, and the ruble’s discount to its emerging-market and commodity-producing peers doubled.”After climbing 27 basis points at the start of trading, yields on Russia’s 10-year ruble bonds were up 19 basis points at 7.23% as of 11:21 a.m. in Moscow, set for the biggest increase since August. The ruble traded 1.3% weaker at 76.85 per dollar, after a drop of as much as 2.1%. Russia’s benchmark MOEX stock index snapped three days of gains with a 0.8% retreat.On Thursday, investors were waiting for further details of the planned restrictions.Which institutions are covered by the sanctions may be key, especially if it affects the world’s biggest bond clearing systems, according to Paul McNamara, an emerging-markets investor at GAM Investments in London.“Does that include any financial institution with a U.S. operation? Or, conceivably, U.S. clients,” he said. “If it affects Euroclear and Clearstream that’s a bigger deal, but most OFZs don’t go via those systems, even held by foreigner.”For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
Andrea Orcel will fulfil his dream of becoming a bank boss on Thursday when UniCredit investors back the veteran dealmaker as chief executive, but disquiet over his pay, among the highest for a banker in Europe, means his tenure begins on the defensive. Orcel only narrowly defeated a shareholder revolt over the terms and size of his up to 7.5 million euro ($9 million)remuneration package, Italian daily la Repubblica reported on its website late on Wednesday. UniCredit declined to comment.

Dublin, April 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Hepatocellular Carcinoma - Opportunity Analysis and Forecasts to 2029" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering. The pipeline drugs in development for HCC are mostly already approved for other indications and HCC represents a growth strategy for the brands. There are currently nine pipeline products in Phase III clinical trial; additionally, seven marketed agents are in clinical trials to expand their labels in new lines of therapy and new combinations within HCC. The most common MOAs under investigation for HCC include tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) and immuno-oncology (IO) agents (programmed cell death 1 (PD-1)/programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) inhibitors, and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte associated protein 4 (CTLA-4) inhibitors). In addition to the active late-stage pipeline, there are a large number of ongoing Phase I and II trials. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most frequent type of primary malignancy of the liver. The prognosis of HCC is dependent on the stage of the disease at diagnosis. However, even with treatments such as surgical resection, liver transplantation, and ablative therapies, which are only suitable for early-stage HCC patients, the majority of patients are likely to progress onto the advanced stages of the disease. Until the entry of Roche's combination therapy of Avastin + Tecentriq in May 2020, Bayer's multikinase inhibitor commanded the largest first-line and second-line patient share in the HCC market. This led to a shift in multikinase inhibitor monotherapy as standard of care (SOC) and initiated a new strategy in the HCC market whereby combinations are now the predominant therapeutic option under development.Key Highlights Upon approval of Avastin + Tecentriq by the FDA, in May 2020, the combination replaced the SoC in first-line advanced HCC, shifting Nexavar and Lenvima to second-line treatment options.The greatest drivers of growth in the global HCC market include the launch of new pipeline therapies, combinations of therapies with different MOAs, label expansion from other oncology indications to HCC, and label expansion into earlier lines of therapy, in addition to an increase in diagnosed incident cases in many 8MM countries.The main barrier to growth in the HCC market is patent expiration of key biologic brands with subsequent biosimilar launch.The most important unmet needs in the HCC market are better HCC surveillance and prophylactic treatments, curative therapies in early-stage HCC, improved survival for intermediate-stage HCC, data on sequencing of treatments, prognostic biomarkers, treatments for patients with impaired liver function.
