"good guys who just forget to do it safely"
i'm speechless…this guy could have the fate of the country, or world, and they "just forget to do it safety"...
maybe it's this…and yes, i told you so...
"CDC outlines 5 incidents in which deadly pathogens were mishandled"
"Federal health officials on Friday disclosed a new safety breach at a high-security U.S. laboratory involving dangerous avian flu, a lapse that came to light as they investigated the potential exposure of government researchers to live anthrax bacteria.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said an internal probe found multiple failures by individual scientists and a lack of agency-wide safety policies had led to the potential exposure of more than 80 lab workers to live anthrax at its Atlanta campus last month. Researchers in a high-security lab sent samples of what they thought were inactivated bacteria to colleagues in a lower-security lab, with fewer protections.
Investigators also discovered a previously unreported incident: Workers at a high-security CDC lab sent samples containing a dangerous strain of bird flu to counterparts at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in March. Mishandling avian flu could have far graver consequences than anthrax does, though no one has been found to have been infected in either case.
The two incidents represent the latest in a series of breaches at the CDC in the last decade that is drawing fresh scrutiny from Congress and questions about the agency's ability to oversee potentially dangerous research. The CDC said its findings provide a "wake-up call" to overhaul the protocols and oversight governing experiments with deadly pathogens.
Biosecurity has focused on "how to keep bad guys out of the lab," Michael Osterholm of the University of Minnesota and a member of the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity, which advises the federal government said in a telephone interview. "One of the critical issues we need to focus on is the good guys who just forget to do it safely."
Try it for 4 years. I'm all about delayed gratification. This has been a cash cow for Wall Street , as are many bio-techs. F them. Think of all the possible discoveries that were crushed by un-regulated shorting. Price discovery?? I think not.
I have been checking around and the the only catalyst I can see is the news out of Colorado of the man contracting a deadly virus. That might be the cause for this move.
Today is a bit strange after the week we have had (which surprised me in itself... I thought we were going to shoot past $13). Volume is weak but we will end up about the same as the last couple of days in that respect. 6% is a fairly significant pop on no news, eh? I reckon we will see a 3 million share volume day before we see the "$40 bid" (tho I predict $28), so it doesn't look like that is on the cards for Monday.
I used to get excited when the stock had these moves but no more. It seems there is never a follow through set of days anymore and plus the volume is anemic. I do believe we are going much higher but I have no clue when that will happen.
A $40 bid would be a nice present for Monday morning.
Have a good weekend everyone.
that's when they'll announce the results of the gout trial. they'll declare victory, with a caveat, a few SAE's…IMO.
the drug will then go into the same category as SVNT's, a dud. because without a clean safety profile, a drug for that population which suffers from multiple other illnesses, will be right next to worthless…IMO.
WEATHER a stock is good or bad. Money is to be made either side of the trade by(buy) those who make the rules. Get over it.
Charts don't reflect the short/margin ratio. When you have that data, you have insight to the play.
BioCryst Pharmaceuticals : Researchers Submit Patent Application, "Methods of Treating Hematologic Cancers", for Approval
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- From Washington, D.C., NewsRx journalists report that a patent application by the inventors BANTIA, Shanta (Birmingham, AL); BREITFELD, Philip (Birmingham, AL); BABU, Yarlagadda S. (Birmingham, AL), filed on February 26, 2014, was made available online on July 3, 2014 ...
Let's see if this is one of the new drugs being considered for the pipeline.
loose anthrax - no big deal.
loose smallpox vials - no big deal.
making a deadly strain of h5n1 - no big deal.
until this guy comes out with something pro-active, he's more of a threat to society than anything he cooks up...
New article on this subject, worth the read: "Don't test Ebola vaccine, drugs now: experts"
Obviously this idea has been discussed at higher levels, the main concern is if the drug(s) don't work it will spread fear among the locals.
Jeremy Farrar argues if this was in North America there would be any question about using experimental drugs.
This is an uneasy topic but if you're a patient with a disease likely to kill you in days you'll try anything.
If the spreading gets much worse the more pressure there is to test experimental drugs. It's not just the common man dying in Africa it is the health care workers too.
Time will tell.
"Dr Lance Jennings, of the National Influenza Specialist Group, said dozens of people had ended up in intensive care after contracting the H1N1 strain this year, including several in Wellington and Hawke's Bay.
One Canterbury patient had died. "It is really coming back to haunt us."
The strain was most likely to hit children, young adults and the healthy, he said."
Please do not say any things, JUST QUICK YOUR JOB!
You have no plan since swine flu in 2009 and sticking to it.
hey! you guys try and get up at 6am, and drive cross country…
there's supposed to be a period after "moment"…
BTW- we needed to back fill the PPS before going higher, IMO.
