    Why I Invested In BCRX..

    I'm new to BCRX as of last Friday. My main reason for my investment is BCRX is their development of an Oral Medication to prevent HAE attacks. I myself have HAE (Hereditary Angioedema). Been in my family for 5 generations. Currently during attacks, I treat myself at home with a self infused IV. I look forward to the day when I and other HAE patients can take something orally long term to prevent attacks from even beginning. HAE attacks of the stomach/abdomen are extremely painful. Other areas of the body are also effected by HAE attacks, the worst being the airway. Swelling in the airway can cause death. I lost my father when I was 10 when his airway swelled shut. So, you can see my interest in BCRX and their development of a new oral drug. Please let me know if you have any questions concerning my disease, I'd be happy to answer them. Bad day today after earnings, but I'll be long for quite sometime. Good luck to everyone in their investments.
