The article says, 'four large expensive Phase III Trials are going on around the world now to see if Vitamin D prevents Cancer and heart disease, as well as treats others diseases like multiple sclerosis, heart failure, etc...' Like the Phase III study funded at Harvard which indicates positive results. Opko's drug Rayaldy is the first and only patented modified-release formulation for Vitamin D. IN OTHER WORDS, VITAMIN D MAY PREVENT CANCER, AND OPKO HAS THE ONLY VITAMIN D DRUG IN THE WORLD FOR THIS TREATMENT. (In Phase III trials) WOW. Not to mention all of the other diseases it can also treat. This is huge.
We are sitting on a gold mine. I never knew the connection between Cancer, Vitamin D and Opko's Rayaldy.. until now. I knew Frost was the best and Opko had huge potential, but this could be bigger than I ever imagined.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Gst calm down, the best the studies will do is show a connection, and over the counter Vitam D might work for most people anyway. The DEAL with Ryaldi is regular Vitamin D treatments DO NOT work with a percent of the population, Kidney patients being one of them. I need to reread the Ryaldi presentation, but a second point is with the kidney patients a second item, Calcium??? gets out of wack with traditional vit d, but NOT with Ryaldi. Might not be calcium, but you get the idea.
It is worth Googeling Dr. Cannell vitamin D, he is WELL versed in the subject, in fact he founded the Vitamin D council. Rayaldi is the one drug I have highest hopes for too, but I am no authority on Vitamin D, like Dr. Cannel.
I like it because opko will be first to market with this type treatment, it is a 6-8 B addressable market and will be competing against ? for market share? Over the counter Vit D is ineffective for the indications Ryaldi hopes to treat, sooo, whenever I look at pipeline, and look at future revenue, I figure 10% market share is a big win for opko. I then grin and figure 10% for Ryaldi knowing I am off by 30-50%. I state constantly 2016, 2016, 2016, Ryaldi should be hitting market in, 2016, the understated GEM.
