With Q3 earnings and major biotech conferences being held recently, many companies within the sector have seen a growth in awareness. However, it has not been easy for biotech companies recently and many companies are seeing a decrease in share value.

Onyx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ONXX) rose over 18% today, to a day-high of $58.94 in early afternoon trades after reporting its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007. Onyx reported net income of $555,000, or $0.01 per share, for the third quarter of 2007 compared to a net loss of $20.1 million, or $0.49 per share, in the same period in the prior year. That's great news for investors as they embraced this positive result sending Onyx well past their 52-week high -- continuing its climb for this year.

Pharmaceutical and life sciences companies are among the most analysed and evaluated organisations in business today. Over the course of this decade, scientists are predicting a dramatic change over the innovation and use of drugs. The time is now for these companies to gain exposure and take advantage of the biotech market now.

In the future, the approach that companies pursue will depend in large measure upon their individual goals. But with the current erratic market behaviour shown by investors, are biotech investors bailing out too quickly from negative news that could once turn again to be positive?

Despite falling sharply over this past year, Vion Pharmaceuticals, INC. (NASDAQ: VION) rose to a day-high of $0.78, up over 14% in early afternoon trades. Shareholder have been on edge since September 18, 2007 when they received a letter, dated September 17, 2007, from Nasdaq Stock Market Inc., notifying the Company that during the proceeding 30 consecutive trading days, the bid price of Vion's common stock had closed below the minimum bid price of $1.00 per share as required by the Nasdaq Stock Market under Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4). The letter stated that, in accordance with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(8)(D), the Company has until March 17, 2008 to demonstrate compliance with the rule (i.e. the bid price of Vion's common stock must close at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days, and under certain circumstances, more than 10 trading days). Vion will hold a conference call on Thursday, November 8, 2007 to discuss its third quarter and nine-month 2007 financial results. Hopefully the call will shed some light as to the future of Vion on the Nasdaq.

PainCare Holdings, Inc. (AMEX: PRZ) rose today to a day-high of $0.46, up over 18% in early afternoon trades. PainCare has back on a slow rise since it signed a national contract with FOCUS Healthcare Management, Inc. to deliver access to IPS' proprietary provider network of pain management specialists.

In the battle for supremacy with big shot companies such as Pfizer, the juniors involved within this particular sector have a lot of leverage as these big companies continue to invest and scan for new patents, licenses, and drugs.

It's a tough world out there for big pharmaceuticals, but it helps the junior world move forward.

Something to bear in mind is that only a small fraction of the public could name any company that develops vaccines to prevent an epidemic (4%), provides medicines or medical equipment in case of a major disaster (7%), or contributes to patient assistance programs (14%).

Despite a new loyal following for new age ideas and a "greener" life using organics and natural cures, the view on innovative drugs remains strong. If pharmaceutical companies could raise awareness of their philanthropic actions, they would undoubtedly make gains in countering negative feelings toward the sector.
