    PHYSICIAN : Feuerstein's Article Today Medically Incorrect

    All of the fear, uncertainty, and doubt in today's Feurstein article is factually incorrect, and deliberately and desperately meant to mislead the reader. Any concerns of malignancy, valvulopathy, and psychiatric side effects have been PROVEN factually wrong at human serum therapeutic levels in lorcaserin's FDA data submission. EU decision makers have scientific backgrounds like our own FDA. They are not stupid or naive, and they do not think like this.

    For an article writer who is a non-physician to write such an article is inappropriate at best, and is absolutely libelous. These concerns have already been addressed, and I will be reporting this to the SEC. EU decision makers are not stupid or naive, and this drug has PAID ITS DUES many times over under the scientific microscope of investigation and FDA approval.

    No drug is 100% efficacious in all patients all the time in all patients. BELVIQ has an 11% efficacy in weight loss among responders at one year, so BELVIQ DOES MEET Europe's primary efficacy criterion. Study dropouts are by actual study design, which lowers the placebo-adjusted efficacy. Again, the EU is neither stupid nor naive.

    Mr. Feuerstien was WRONG ON BOTH ADCOM AND FDA approval last year.
    He will be wrong on this too.

    • agree very wrong, but great time to add before launch, I thank those who set stop losses and weak hands, AF fud help me 1.5 years ago to add 11000 shares in the low 2pps but he is a #$%$!!! bought more this am and all dips...

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • IMO AF doesn't care about being right, he/TSC is paid to do his job by hedge funds that are desperate to bring the price down. If we could only follow the money and figure out how TSC is compensated for their deceptive reporting, they could be brought down. For now, take advantage of the moves by selling some high and buying some low, selling some calls when overbought, selling some outs when oversold and stay off margin!

    • This article was publised around 6:00 AM and now it shows a later time....will they just keep throwing this out there all day so it stays on top?

    • Why don't WE INVESTORS FILE A CLASS ACTION CIVIL? I agree, this is libel!

      Sentiment: Buy

      • because Lief still has his eye on the goal and inflamming it all with suits does not in the end advance his position. I am sure he has rolled his eyes a million times while clamping a lock to his mouth!

        It is tiring stuff! This is why regulatory drug reviews and agnecies should be overhauled in a major way--the process is collapsing the goals under its own weight of inactivity! its slowly becoming useless to evaluate drugs as the timelines and costs approach not bothering with patent lengths and resources in cash---its a sick system!

        We aren;t protecting people from bad drugs as much as we are killing people not providing access to good ones! The concept of risk/benefit analysis is totally warped anymore! And it keeps getting worse if one is experienced in knowledge in/of the industry! The process is so bad it should require dispensing a giant three foot diameter pepto-bismol pill anymore, but the agencies would likely examine thats utility to death too and order up 10 year rat studies in an animal that lives for 2-2.5 years!

    • AF is a #$%$ along with that Cramer!

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Unfortunately, The Street and this individual have an agenda and that agenda is not restricted by accuracy.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Of course AF will be wrong in the end----its the current space and the room to do what he is doing thats the big aggrevator and when it comes to ARNA, it keeps happening over and over and over!

      Why must investing in a sound premise in this drug and company continue to endlessly be a giant stupid soap opera where the scenes play out over and over with every regulatory agency on earth?
