  • April 5, 2013, on this very board:

    "HPTX's MAMXIMUM revenue wll likely be only 30 million dollars since it WON'T be able to charge more than what already available drugs cost because ravicti so far can only claim NON-INFERIORITY..."

    May 6, 2014, from the HPTX website:

    "BRISBANE, Calif., May 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hyperion Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq:HPTX) today reported net revenue of $19.5 million for the first quarter of 2014 from the sales of its two products for the treatment of urea cycle disorders, RAVICTI® (glycerol phenylbutyrate) Oral Liquid and BUPHENYL® (sodium phenylbutyrate) Tablets and Powder."

    So that $30 million max revenue is now looking closer to $80 million and they're still adding new patients. For some added hilarity look up his posts from the board for OMER, a stock up 167% in the last 12 months. Oops!

  • Revenues driven by recent contracts for the most advanced life saving diagnostics will expand 150 times in the next 24 months. And that is just the beginning!

    Millennium Healthcare (MHCC) recently announced newly SIGNED contracts with ACO’s IPA’s and MSO’s to provide exclusive, state-of-the-art, non-invasive cardiovascular and cancer diagnostics to 1,300 locations that will escalate Millennium’s current revenues of $2 million per year to over $300 million per year.

    Cardiovascular and cancer diagnostics rolling out to physician’s offices this year.

    Revenues will begin rapid growth by year end.

    Market size for Millennium Diagnostics is 35,000 primary care offices. The first 1,300 recently contracted with Millennium and the rest are standing in line to sign up with Millennium because:

    § Millenniums program increases physician’s revenues dramatically
    § Millennium’s diagnostics are fully paid by Medicare and are free to patients
    § Millennium’s diagnostics appeal to patients because they are life-saving, fast, painless and highly accurate
    § Millennium’s diagnostics are exclusive from Millennium only
    § The physician pays no up front capital costs

    Millennium’s market cap is under $40 million today and shares are selling at under $1.00.

    What will this growth do to the price of MHCC shares?

    Millennium HealthCare is well positioned for explosive growth that is rarely seen.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Explaining the repurchase of rights, "...Clal Biotech's board of directors audit committee says that Andromeda's buying back of the global rights to DiaPep277 from Teva was "important to accelerate the business development and commercialization and the drug that has taken place in recent months."

    Yeah, right! Like Teva decides to take a 100 million dollar loss because of all the "business development and commercilization" that had "taken place in recent months." How about, those American idiots are buying ANYTHING remotely biotech, so let's see if we can con them as well as we did Aventis and Teva!

    And now, lucky HPTX acquires Andomeda and all rights to diapep277 for the bargain basement price of -- drumroll please -- 20 MILLION dollars!!!

    Talk about a t__d rolling downhill! Why so cheap? Well, first, the autoimmune process can begin YEARS before actual clinical detection of diabetes. Now, for clinical symptoms to develop sufficiently to allow diagnosis, around 90% of the beta cells need to be destroyed. Treating with diascam277 might help preserve some of them, but it won't restore dead beta cells, so you're still insulin dependent, and there's no reason to believe that you won't still be subject to all the same problems every other IDDM patient faces. In other words, you might preserve beta cells, but so what? It's too late!

    And now you understand why Aventis and Teva and pretty much anyone with an IQ larger than a grapenut, walked away from it. Lucky HPTX, huh?

    In 2004, Peptor merges with "DeveloGen" -- a German biotech -- in order to unite "DeveloGen's efforts to develop treatments for obesity and diabetes with Peptor, whose products also target diabetes and other immune system conditions. The merged firm will develop a wide range of drugs to treat metabolic disease."

    Just THREE years later, in 2007, Develogen "sells" diapep277 to "Andromeda Biotech Ltd. ("Andromeda"), a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary of Clal Biotechnology." I say "sells" because apparently no money changed hands, Develogen just acquired royalties from "future sales" if the drug was ever commercialized.

    In 2009, Teva Pharmaceuticals licenses the drug from Andromeda. Ronny Gal, an ananlyst at Sanford Bernstein estimated " the market for the medicine to be about 50,000 patients a year at a price point of between $5,000 and $10,000 annually. The product is a “nice asset” for Teva, which will probably get 20 percent of sales as a royalty rate."

    In June 2010 Teva Pharmaceutical decided to exercise its option to invest in Andromeda Biotech receiving worldwide exclusive marketing rights to DiaPep277. It eventually would invest 170 MILLION dollars in Andromeda and diapep277 development and trials. The drug was even given orphan drug status by the FDA in 2012. It even completed a phase 3 trial in 2013: "Efficacy Study of DiaPep277 in Newly Diagnosed Type 1 Diabetes Patients (DIA-AID)"

    Then, in February of 2014, guess what! Andromeda BUYS BACK the rights for a "future payment" of 72 MILLION dollars. Let's see, spend 170 plus million then sell it for a "future" payment of 72 million? What does that tell you?

    Will continue in next post...

  • I only just saw the PR announcing Hyperiscam had bought "Andromeda Biotech"! -- and ISRAELI scam biotech that runs in the same circles as DRIO and ORMP!...

    ...Andromeda lays claim to "DiaPep277" -- geez, even the name sounds like a scam! -- which "is a synthetic peptide of 24 amino acids derived from the sequence of the human heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60). The peptide modulates the immune response that leads to autoimmune diabetes by diminishing or blocking the immunological destruction of beta cells."

    HAW!!! This is just too good!!! So in 1996 a company called "Peptor" is founded in Israel with 63 MILLION dollars in seed money (note to myself -- start a biotech company).

    Then about 20 YEARS ago, they develop this "immunomodulator" and calls it "diapep277." In 2001, they published a paper in Lancet about how it prevents beta cell loss in type 1 diabetics. Lo and behold, in 2002, Aventis pays Peptor 15 MILLION dollars to license the drug for further development and it was described as a "megadeal" by at least one analyst. ONE year later, Aventis RETURNS the drug to Peptor -- no explanation offered but pretty safe to presume they didn't think the drug was worth any further investment.

    I will continue this in another post since Yahoo has decided to limit length for some some reason.

    It's always a drag when there are people on the boards who remember your track record in predicting stock prices. Also how did that revenue prediction work out? Oh darn!

    HAWWW --- TIme to buy if you are selling

  • ...released data this am for its "Phase 2 trial of glycerol phenylbutyrate (GPB) for the treatment of hepatic encephalopathy (HE)" which showed it worked better than a "placebo" my daughters too frequently say to me, "well, DUHHHHH!"...feeding them an ammonia scavenger is better than doing NOTHING at all!...I am soooooo surprised!!!...HAW!!!...

    ...BUT, how does it compare with the current therapies used to treat HE? it safer and/or more effective?...more importantly, is it COST effective?...I mean, after all, the currently accepted therapies are a LOT cheaper; how much is society willing to spend to prevent HE -- usually a symptom of end-stage cirrhosis...

    ...and did anyone notice how this press release came just a couple of days before the fourth quarter earnings release?...I wonder what that could mean?...HAW!!!!....
