    TRUNOC was taken out of pipeline with no explanation

    In hznp site, pipeline has no mention of TRUNOC anymore, yet the company said nothing about it. smells fishy to me. Also I have been reading lately the comments of sales reps in cafepharma and things look very dismal there. Looks like something bad is happening and company trying to hide it.

    • I wouldn't place too much stock in what you see on CafePharma; in the last few years it's transformed itself from a site where you could occasionally pick up some useful information to one that is almost incessantly trolled by shorts masquerading as Pharma reps and others who ARE reps who just suffer from a terminal case of "bad attitude".

      I thought they took TruNoc off the website some months ago, but I'm really not certain of that, and as to not doing a Press Release about it, that's not that unusual for a product that is a candidate for licensing as opposed to a candidate for development/trials. NiTec Pharma enrolled a Phase III Trial back in 2008 or 2009 and I haven't a clue what the outcome was, or if NiTec (which was a Merck spinoff) is even still around. TruNoc may have been overtaken by generics; it happens.

      Sounds like it's a pretty insignificant blip to me.

      • agree cafepharma appears a good place to get a wrong impression and get scared for no reason. Go look what everyone was saying in 2011 which was the company would be bankrupt by now and the drugs were useless and generics were better and of course cheaper. The company isn't making stuff up, sales are growing and strong since the salesforce and a pharma generally only purs in a price increase if they're pretty sure it will stick. Whow are these reps complaining? Would the fact the company made some mistake on getting their tax forms out to these guys affect sales or earnings? Of course not. Do successful HZNP salespeople go whining on cafe pharma? I think they take their checks and spend their time selling. Is cafepharma an easy place for shorts to post anonymously to scare longs? Of course, there's no penalty. I've practiced rheumatology and the drugs make sense.

      • Mike, I would have agreed with you on trunoc but the fact is that until April 10TH IT WAS STILL IN the website and more important in all of the roadshows preformed to institutionals and analysts. As for cafepharma, I totally agree, but there is no one single positive poster there, you would think that one loyal worker would defend its beloved workplace?

        I have been long hznp for a long time, and sure am not short now... but something is not right.

        HOpe I am wrong
