    Nestragel questions

    If and when Antares signs a deal with Ferring or another big pharma, how does Population Council fit into the picture?
    They have the trademark on the name "Nestragel".
    Also, how long would it take to go through all the trials and bring it to market?

    • Rymankoly - Timor:
      One thought -- If I have to stop pumping @ $15 - I might get bored.
      Rymankoly, is it OK with you if I pump all the way up to $25 ??

      A zvic here appears not to like my posts and thinks I get paid for
      making them. I do - I am paid by the stock - NOT THE COMPANY
      but the Stock, as Rymankoly well points out-- ever since the shares
      sold for 40 cents (I was there and am still there - never having sold
      a single share of stock in ATRS).
      I wonder who- (what- why- where and when) will find fault with me
      when the stock is $15.
      Bulletin -
      I can answer the "when " part of my own question- sometime in 2013.

      a mr whogo70 had a very useful ,practiable comment on nestragel, which essentially sounds like a pipedream .i appreciate that post , thank u whogo, this tappy person posts, and god bless his profession i'm sure he's paid good money, but its like standing on the corner waving a flag as the parade goes by. useless.... i don't wanna live in a dream world give me the truth.... and your scatological comments expose you.... buy atrs

    • Zvic,you have to be one of the grumpiest people alive.Miserable,are we? I bet when you ask your wife for oral sex and she complies,you then beatch about how its not just feeling right.Do yourself(and us) a favor.Jump in front of the next moving train :)

    • Hnbadger, your going to get a wide range of opinions on Nestragel. No ones knows how the Population council fits into any royalty agreement. Its a non-profit so Delweine has given his opinion in the past they wouldn't receive royalties. Even non-profits need income to operate so I believe they would get a 5% royalty.

      How much Antares gets on any agreement is also hard to determine. No one can figure out the true reason Antares has not been able to find a partner since the Phase II was completed 3 yrs ago, management continues to state parties are interested, and opinions from Doctors in this area think it has great potential.

      I'm in the opinion Pharma/Antares has had discussions with the FDA on what type of Phase 3 trial would be required & found that it would require 3 thousand participants over 5 yrs. The trial would cost $200 million so that eliminates most companies. In addition, Antares wants more then a single digit royalty from any agreement & doesn't want to commit additional funds so pharma has been unwilling to sign. Companies like TEVA already sell birth control pills so do they want to develop a product to compete with themselves?

      I think Antares will end up signing for an undisclosed royalty unless they agree to fund a portion of the trials. Once Antares gets over $5 then I wouldn't be surprised to see a secondary in order to fund clinical trials & this would allow some bigger funds to enter the stock.
