    • Miteeeee mouse...all is forgiven, still holding
      post of court jester open for you. Looking forward to
      your return to the kingdom.
      Still nostalgic for the
      old CBMI days. Brings tears to my eyes.

      Your
      loyal and humble king, OP

    • More applications

      Other uses are being
      devised

      Pilarski waited more than a year for the AGF surgery.
      Medicaid initially balked at covering it because the
      procedure is new.

      "Insurance does now cover it,
      depending on the insurance carrier you have and how many
      letters I have to write to them explaining it to them,"
      Watson says.

      AGF costs $1,200-$1,800, depending
      on the amount of material that needs to be harvested
      from the patient. The cost is comparable to
      traditional bone grafting, but requires less hospital
      recovery time.

      Watson and his colleagues have now
      performed about 50 AGF operations in the past 2 years. Most
      operations replace large areas of a patient's bone that has
      been destroyed as a result of motor vehicle or
      industrial accidents.

      It's not the size of the
      missing segment of bone that determines the success of an
      AGF procedure, Watson says. As long as there is
      natural bone remaining to graft upon, the AGF paste can
      bridge any gap.

      Small broken bones are still best
      left on their own to heal after being set properly,
      Watson says. For elderly people, however, whose bones
      take longer to heal, Watson has used the AGF procedure
      to fill in the fracture voids.

      "Their bones
      just needed a jump start," Watson says.

      Perhaps
      the greatest future potential for AGF procedures is
      in the treatment of osteoporosis.

      Because
      elderly people tend to have bones that are less dense
      than younger people's, they are more prone to break
      bones when they fall. Watson sees AGF treatment as a
      preventive tool to avoid fractures.

      "It would be
      ideal if these patients were identified and we could
      work the bone growth hormones into their bones before
      they fracture." Watson foresees preventative AGF
      procedures as a reality in 5-10 years. Research to this end
      is being conducted by Harvest Technologies in
      Boston. Funding for the initial research came from
      Interpore, a California manufacturer of medical filtration
      technology.

      "With the success of this research, this technique is
      now a reasonable tool for most surgeons to use,"
      Watson says.

      For Pilarski, the procedure was more
      than reasonable.

      "It's been really hard to not
      be mobile and able to get up and go. But I can get
      on with my life. I don't have to depend on anybody.

    • <<Now, please, explain your paranoid
      feelings and shouting. I'm not a shrink, so you don't have
      to pay me.>>

      The shouting was to get
      your attention

      The paranoid feelings, I wont
      say paranoia I would say talking from experience. Cut
      & pasted this from my previous post please excuse
      the shouting I don't want to send you to a shrink
      shell shocked.

      NOW THAT'S A CROCK OF BULL. MM
      HAVE AN INSIDE PICTURE OF THE MARKET. IF YOU THINK
      LEVEL II IS THE REAL DEAL FOR WHAT'S OUT THERE YOUR
      CRAZY. MM RUN AGAINST ORDERS THEY RAISE THE PRICE SO
      THEY CAN FILL AT HIGHER PRICES ONCE THEIR ORDER IS
      COMPLETED BY THEM THEY WORK THEIR MARKET OR MANIPULATE THE
      MARKET TO GET IT WHERE THEY WANT IT TO CONSUMMATE THEIR
      TRADE TO EVEN THEIR POSITION.THE PURPOSE OF THE MM
      SYSTEM IS TO CREATE A FAIR & ORDERLY MARKET .WHAT IT
      REALLY IS TO TRADE FOR THEIR ACCOUNT FOR THE WIDEST
      SPREAD THEY CAN.DONT GIVE ME THE INVENTORY BULL DID YOU
      EVER WANT TO SELL A GUY 2000 HE WOULD SAY ILL TAKE 500
      & GET OUT OF YOUR WAY. WOW WHAT A GUY WHAT RISK


      That's my point, if you want to buy a refrigerator you
      will get a better shot a Macys.

      <<. If
      you put in a MARKET order to buy, say 150,000 shares
      of a tiny company, you are just plain stupid. There
      is no specialist to maintain a fair and orderly
      market on the NASDAQ.>>

      In my experience
      any market order given to a MM is stupid. If the MM
      gets wind of a size order out there they are going to
      try to even out their position & go against that
      order for their trading advantage. That's a fact so
      don't say its not done, or the exception to the rule.
      You make it sound like an Alice in wonderland
      function. Its all about making money.

      <<. To
      maintain a "fair and orderly market" he must be willing to
      accept a market order when no one else is there to do so
      at a fair price.>>

      <<Re: NASDAQ.
      No specialist. A market of dealers. They buy and
      sell from their own inventories or
      account>>

      By your own above definitions the MM function is not
      like the specialist but as a dealer trade solely for
      his own account. He is looking out for his position &
      do what he can to run ahead of orders & screw the
      customer to make money. Paranoia no, seen it happen over &
      over, yes.

      <<Regarding your "home runs", I
      am happy for you that you presumably got in early.
      There are others who got into the same stocks who are
      crying in their beer>>

      Those home runs was
      in your response to your post

      <<Look at
      the other small biotechs to see similar disasters.
      Try MCDE, RZYM, CYTO, HYSQ -to name a
      few.>>

      All I am saying is, as much as there are disasters
      there are companies that I mentioned that were at one
      time start up & now home runs for the early investor
      like I hope CRIS will be.

      I have a GE with an
      ice maker & an ice water dispenser on the front door.
      Best buy Macys All the other dealers where out of
      line.

    • To Pasta and others:

      Re: The NYSE. There
      is an auction market with a specialist assigned to a
      given stock. The specialist's job is to maintain a
      "fair an orderly market." Clearly the specialist has an
      inventory risk. To maintain a "fair and orderly market" he
      must be willing to accept a market order when no one
      else is there to do so at a fair price.
      Re: NASDAQ.
      No specialist. A market of dealers. They buy and
      sell from their own inventories or account, just like
      you might open up a store to buy and sell
      refrigerators and compete with other refrigerator dealers. Now,
      if you are a customer looking for a refrigerator and
      know the model you want and find out its fair price,
      and if you walk into a refrigerator retailer and the
      dealer sees you coming and raises his price, you will
      walk out and go next door to buy it at the price which
      you consider fair value. If the guy next door also
      offers the refrigerator at a price you consider too
      high, you as a rational buyer will walk out the door
      and wait or reconsider. And, if you have ten brand
      new refrigerators you want to sell to a dealer, he
      may only want five from you (just as the MM may only
      want 500 shares from you).
      Same thing with stocks.
      You decide what price you want to pay for a stock.
      The dealer, in competition with other dealers, sets
      his bid and ask. If you put in a MARKET order to buy,
      say 150,000 shares of a tiny company, you are just
      plain stupid. There is no specialist to maintain a fair
      and orderly market on the NASDAQ.
      Now, please,
      explain your paranoid feelings and shouting. I'm not a
      shrink, so you don't have to pay me.
      Regarding your
      "home runs", I am happy for you that you presumably got
      in early. There are others who got into the same
      stocks who are crying in their beer.

    • what is going on pure and simple...run the price
      up fast to 13 or 14 and lure people in and then
      short the %%&# out of it.I guess the message to us
      longs is follow the plot of hype and dump only be
      careful.

    • <<If you think Vulcan Ventures has the
      magic touch, look at the price history of SHPH, and
      maybe you will feel differently.>>

      Was
      SHPH a Vulcan Ventures investment? If that was true
      why should CRIS meet the same faith. You mentioned a
      few other casualties that happens it doesn't have to
      hold true for CRIS.

      <<If OP-1 flies, in
      this market CRIS will go up a little. (Yawn.) If it
      flubs, yikes!>>

      You are off base on this.
      OP-1 use in non union fractures has an anticipated
      revenue of over one billion. We have not even began to
      scratch the service in other uses. OP-1 approval in this
      lousy market CRIS will fly
      <<It sells for
      seven and change, after a considerable amount of
      dilution of equity from the recent private
      placement>>

      You cannot be in a biotech business & not need
      capital.
      Yes, there is dilution but it is better than issuing a
      Convenable Pr. Where you can convert at a discount keeping
      constant pressure on the stock.CBMI issued one of these PR
      bought it back & learned a lesson about raising capital.

    • opportunity. Any hints on OP=1?

    • Consider the following:

      If you go into
      www.bigcharts.com and look at CBMI, you will see that it sold for 1
      and change in 1995. CRIS consists of CBMI plus a
      couple of formerly private companies. It sells for seven
      and change, after a considerable amount of dilution
      of equity from the recent private placement. Does
      that comfort you? (It doesn't comfort me.)

      MMs
      make money the easy way. They generally buy a stock at
      a price and sell it quickly at a higher price. That
      is fair enough, because they assume an inventory
      risk. Nevertheless, a paranoid perception exists that
      MMs are out to get you by manipulating the market.
      Poppycock!

      If you think Vulcan Ventures has the magic touch,
      look at the price history of SHPH, and maybe you will
      feel differently.

      How do you determine that
      CRIS is worth more than 7.5, 2.4, 8.9, or anything? It
      has no earnings. How can you value it?

      If OP-1
      flies, in this market CRIS will go up a little. (Yawn.)
      If it flubs, yikes!

      Look at the other small
      biotechs to see similar disasters. Try MCDE, RZYM, CYTO,
      HYSQ -to name a few.

      You can make money in a
      bear market by buying QUALITY and having PATIENCE.
      You'll know when to buy when your favorite day trading
      publication is no longer in business.

    • Some traders may think with this down market the
      consumation of 5.2 millions share placement is a overhang on
      CRIS. The selling may be a ploy by MM to flush out weak
      hands. I believe the buyer did not make the purchase to
      flip the stock.Last sale $ 7 1/2 =$2 1/4 CBMI Dont you
      think CRIS without OP-1 non union fractures is worth
      much more than $ 7 1/2.
