I was looking through Yahoo to see the annual cost of the disease without much luck.Found out some other information I will pass along.1 in every 500 African-Americans ,1 in every 1000 Hispanic-Americans is affected by Sickle cell.There is no cure but read that bone marrow transplant gives a "potential" cure or at least some longevity. The disease got its name from the deformed red blood cells that are shaped like a farming tool -a sickle.Blood transfusions help but anymore and up to 10 transfusions you run the risk of " IRON TOXICITY "Which is a build up of red blood cells the body can't deal with, A blood test can be done looking for SERUM FERRITUM. It causes problems with the pancreas,heart and can bring on diabetes.Sickle cell causes blockages to tissues and organs and when that happens severe pain is the result. So with SickleCell you are dealing with many problems at the same timt. Your health going downhill harm being done to organs , shortening of your life span and pain.Can cause lung problems and bring on a "stroke". Sickle cell is a heriditary disease from one or both of the parents. ANX is in the process of getting the ball rolling on reformulation of 2 existing cancer drugs if approved that would put ANX on the map in the medical field but if they can get their foot in the door on Sickle cell any news of worth will be highly publicized and really push ANX up in the minds of people in the medical field. I have heard about Sickle cell since as long as I can remember but haven't heard 1 thing about forward steps in fighting,relief or steps for a cure for this terrible disease.It would be great for humanities sake and shareholders and value the of ANX if we could make some advancements in this struggle with Sickle Cell. POST- IMO ONLY TELLY 72
Telly that's got to be one of the nicest things anyone could ever do. Thank you.

I'm not knocking or bashing, just offering my true opinion here. Full disclosure, I was an ANX shareholder until the dilution, RS then diluting is a penny stock move to me and I decided to move my funds over to AVNR.
I do believe ANX will recover, but the reason I am writing is in response to the information about sickle cell. I didnt even know the company ANX acquired was dealing with the disease, but I carry a form of Sickle Cell.. G-6PD Deficiency. I have family members with Sickle Cell and know for a fact I carry the trait as many blacks do.
I wish all of you the best but do be aware that the latest and most promising developments with the disease is through Stem Cell research, with an actual possibility of a cure. Google it yourself and read about it. It caught my eye not as an investor but rather a genuine cure for a disease that is not widely researched but is pertains mostly to a minority population.
Hopefully I am misunderstanding and there is something lucrative in this deal for current shareholders, but I felt it important to point out that this is not a sure thing.
I made reference to that stock to Nismo. That's when you heard me mention it. I just shared with him it was something he might like to look at.
Peace. It's all good. Flip a coin over there. L.O.L.
I dont quite understand the Nismo reference...
Just asking what you think about the stock being you made mention of it a few weeks back....
I for one like what I see. Will do some more DD and decide from there....
Again, just being friendly and asking a question. not everyone on this board is an enemy.....
good luck to you quick.....
