“We’re pleased to earn this recognition from FocusEconomics, as it directly reflects the accuracy of our economic forecast scenarios,” said Cris deRitis, Deputy Chief Economist at Moody’s Analytics. “Our clients need trustworthy forecasts now more than ever, and can rely on ours to manage risk, implement accounting standards, and make strategic decisions with confidence.”

With the help of the Moody’s Analytics Global Macroeconomic Model, our economists generate economic forecasts for more than 100 countries interlinked by trade flows, financial markets, prices, and investments. Each month, the baseline scenario projects our view of the most likely path for the global economy, while a further 11 forecast scenarios project alternative economic paths under different assumptions.

To help users, each scenario is assigned a probability based on its relative severity. They are available for download in various file formats, through an Excel Add-In, via API programmatically, or by custom delivery. Clients can also adjust the forecast assumptions and create their own scenarios using the Moody’s Analytics Scenario Studio platform, which supports rigorous governance processes and real-time collaboration among multiple users.

To determine its annual rankings, FocusEconomics examines the accuracy of forecasts submitted to its monthly survey over a 22-month period. Their survey covers 89 countries (on six main macroeconomic indicators) as well as 22 commodities. Our results in this year’s rankings reflect the accuracy of our macroeconomic forecasts for those key indicators between January 2018 and October 2019.

Octapharma Reports Positive Data from octagam® Usage in Critically Ill COVID-19 Patients15.7.2020 18:04:00 EESTPress release

Topline results from a retrospective study in 93 critically ill COVID-19 patients have become available. The data shows that IVIG treatment reduces inflammation, which is associated with poor clinical outcomes and death, and points to an increase in survival, in critically ill COVID-19 patients, when compared to a control group. The study was conducted at the Istanbul University Hospital, Turkey, under the lead of Prof. Dr. Figen Esen. In critically ill COVID-19 patients, the cause of death often implicates an abnormal pulmonary immune response. This abnormal immune response is characterized by high levels of inflammatory markers, which are associated with poor clinical outcomes.1, 2 Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and multiorgan failure are major causes of mortality in COVID-19 patients.3 High levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and chemokines are part of a severe inflammatory response known as a “cytokine storm” which may cause multiple organ dysfunction and ARDS in criti
