    2 Weeks? 2 Months? or longer?

    AFTER patients are first dosed, how long will it take for results to be known & accepted by investors & BIG PHARMA?

    • Results are based on the protocol and objectives. The first objective is saftey. Patient recruitment is also a mongo factor. Because there is an unmet medical need - there will be plenty of patients but then they also have to have patients of different ethnic backgrounds and even mix of sex etc. Based on quick recruitment you could have results in 6- 9 months regarding safety. Then they look at efficacy. So I think 6 - 9 months is a good answer to your question. Now I will give something for you to ponder. if this drug works so well that it shows signs of efficacy when they are just dose esclating they might just shutdown the trial and move it toward a phase III. There is actually a very high likelihood that something like this could happen. This stuff works flawlessly in mice and it is akin to DAVANAT which means it will be well tolerated and in all likelihood will reverse fibrosis just like it did in the preclinical test.

    • Probably never!
