    5 people at NWBO

    and only one has a science background yet they have a "cancer treatment" that no one else has. In comparison, IMUC has 19 people listed for MGT, board of directors and a science advisory board.. it does seem "suspect" NWBO only has 5 with no BOD or advisory board.

    While I think DCVAX L works, I don't know about Direct working. MD Anderson is a good thing, the Principal Investigator: Vivek Subbiah, MD is fresh out of residency, which probably isn't a good thing.

    Given the lack of info from NWBO about progress, this is looking more and more like a lotto ticket with about the same odds.

    NWBO needs to report some positive advancements/results in the trials and need to do this as soon as possible to be taken seriously. Otherwise, Chess is probably right. They have raised over 35 million just this year, each time has been worse then the last. A breakthrough company with a promising "treatment" shouldn't have to give away a 25% bonus for investing in the company buying stock already at a discount.

    While I'd love for NWBO to be the leader in Dendritic Cells, the "bio world" is very well connected (insider info)as there is substantial money to be made on up and coming treatments, the fact that they are on a constant quest for cash at lower and lower offerings leads me to believe those in the know "know" that GBM is being very slow to enroll and Direct, while sounding great, probably doesn't do the trick it does in mice.

    So use caution with your "investment" here is all I'm saying.

    • They have a BOD which was established last fall. They have 2 independents in Jerry Jasinowski and Dr. Navid Malek who are both very successful executives and have been contributing to the management team since their arrival. NWBO will announce an update on progress....just be patient. Their vaccine works as it has been proven in prior trials for GBM, Ovarian and prostate with striking results. DCVax-Direct may not ....but I feel very good about the trial results at MD Anderson which we should be getting an update in Q3/Q4 2013.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Patriot,

        I hope you are right.. but the share price on "striking results" isn't exactly holding water currently. SRPT reported "striking results" and their share price has for the most part held up fairly well.

      • Patriot, do you understand that they spend 5 million a month. If you look at the Q from June they had 1.8 million left. An emergency loan was given to them in July. When they raised 15 million in August then they netted after paying off the load (to Linda I suspect) and the July account - 5 million they netted after fees maybe 8 million. Subtract out 5 million for August and 5 million for Sept. and guess what they are broke AGAIN in about 3 weeks. Now they talked of additional sites for Direct (complete waste of time) and then Germany. They do have a grant but it is dollar in and dollar out. In other words, you need 5.5 million to access the full amount. So... where do they get the money? Again, every deal has hurt the institutions that took it. Is it any wonder nobody took the over allotment warrant.. Or that it was given in the form of an option!!! nobody wants this pig. It is now a money pit and the money is running out and more importantly so is the credibility of Powers and the others who run this company....

    • I have been saying this for months... And the worst of it... given my calculation they are broke again in about a month... then what? Every investor since last year has lost money (provided they just didn't spin out the shares and keep the warrants). You think they are going to do another raise here? Nobody is giving them money. They are so inept. Linda Powers has not business heading this company. Maybe her husband gave her some money to play around and now given the horrific performance it is over. It now needs to re-test the low of 3.12 and see if it holds there.....
