    The New and Improved YMB

    Yesterday an item I posted as a new topic was deleted, and I was unable to repost it. Just now I used the "Messages" view, and I see that it appears there. Only Klaus has responded to it so I assume others have not seen it. Since today I ahve been able to post new topice, let me try reposting yesterday's item again below:

    "ECYT has been discussed on this board in the past. The S/A transcript of their presentation at Cowen yesterday is worth a read. It's instructive on the application process for the EMA version of AA (conditional approval) and demonstrates how a big pharma partner can accelerate progress of a small pharma's oncology program on multiple fronts. IMO, ECYT cut a great deal with Merck. Its EC-145 (aka MK 8109) will be on the market in the EU for treating OC well before NKTR 102 is in the US or EU (even assuming an AA pathway will be available for 102 in OC, which I am having increasing doubts about, but not enough info yet to decide for sure -- such as OS data and unconfirmed responses).

    By the way, I am responding to a Multi post. Despite his overoptimism about HR, his posts were informative and he added a lot to the discussion on this board. Cannot say the same about our new posters, at least to this point."

    • "By the way, I am responding to a Multi post. Despite his overoptimism about HR, his posts were informative and he added a lot to the discussion on this boardge"

      You are absolutely right about Multi. Even though I had several clashes with him about his belief that HR could do no wrong, I do miss his informative comments. My God bless his soul.

      And thank God that we still have Cow and others to explain the science to us.

    • A feature in the new incarnation of the message boards is that if you click on the poster's name, you get a list of all the messages they have posted, here and on other boards. Something useful! Your ECYT message turns up there too.

    • Some more explanation: I originally tried posting into a thread dcx initaitaed on March 5, 2012, relating to Endocyte's EC-145, and I was specifically responding to a Multi post. My post did not appear under the topics view. I then tried posting it under a new topic, and that also did not work. Today my topic posts are showing up on YMB.
