    Stagnant revenues year-over-year

    there were buyers.

    • The Katie Couric crowd on ABC just finished out the week beating their tiresome drum about the barbaric practice of paying circa $2000 to have a hard metallic and unsanitary instrument (which has a 1 in 1,000 risk of perforation, infection and/or lung collapse) into your colon.

      With all that focus, the best mention our great management was able to get was the following:

      :�.Stool DNA tests, which can be done at home, have a roughly 60 percent rate of detection��

      Huh? What happened to the great new 80+percent sensitivity Effipure process?

      Meanwhile over at ABC news, the ace and diligent EXAS and LH public relations corps were able to get this extremely high profile and positive review of PGP into the week�s hype and extravaganza:

      �..Tests to check for cancer-related DNA or other proteins in the stool are under investigation by Turgeon and many other researchers, and could one day replace colonoscopy as a screening tool��

      Excuse my sarcasm.

      And thus the reason there were buyers is that they can somehow read the minds of EXAS longs, sales reps and marketing communcations evangelists. For there is surely no other way they could have found out�.

        Don't knock the colonoscopy. It is still the best thing out there and has saved countless lives.

        "Huh? What happened to the great new 80+percent sensitivity Effipure process?"

        If you're asking this question you don't know enough about the technology or research data that is available. I'm not bashing, just stating the truth. The 80% sensitivity will be released at DDW in May. The results of research studies often times cannot be released until the agreed upon scientific meeting, hence the lack of pushing this in the press.

        Based on the availble data, management is behaving appropriately. They're not selling soda or underwear. This is a scientific process that actually has regulations as far as how they go about revealing information and getting approval.

    • Don't be stupid. No one moves a -.55/yr. stock up 10% in two hours with no news. Someone must know something. C'mon people.
