Recon is still not characterized re. pharmacokenetics with antivirals -which a protocal is in development for (and people would know if they actually understood therapeutic development in this field) ..and as for "AIDS charities", as asked by a poster here on the MSLP. message board, 90%+ of HV therapy in developing nations take their cues from PEPFAR http://www.pepfar.gov/ via SCMS through the COPS http://www.pepfar.gov/guidance/cop/index.htm (this is a bit more complex then selling at GNC) and the Global Fund which ascribes to WHO bulk procurement listing-which takes about 4-6 months-Also the #1 issue is protein deficiencies leading to marasmus in developing nations (like South Central L.A and the Bronx)
It is necessary to treat not only the symptoms but also the complications of the disorder, including infections, dehydration, and circulation disorders, which are frequently lethal and lead to high mortality if ignored.
Ultimately, marasmus can progress to the point of no return when the body's machinery for protein synthesis, itself made of protein, has been degraded to the point that it cannot handle any protein. At this point, attempts to correct the disorder by giving food or protein are futile.
Antiretroviral drug resistance is ascribed to a number of factors, including viral dynamics that cause elevations of specific cytokines that increase inflammation, as seen by the FRAM study at CROI and in a lot of other peer review lit.
Due to the need to reduce shipping burdens (i.e fuel) via SCMS to programs on the ground and the convenience of Musclegel, (3 oz for 20+ grams of protein) I've personally see this product work where K-pax, Resurgex and Nutravir failed-and as for "high protein" Ensure-well its great if you don't mind making patients diabetic and suffer diarrhea
I don't work for the company, don't own a major position-but as a provider in the field and a community based epidemiologist, located in the South Bronx-but at this point there really are lives at stake as well as a new means of addressing the science of treating involuntary morbid weight loss in chronically ill patients. I'm a biotech investor and tired of seeing good companies with good products (and bad companies with good products) have to fight the opinions of short sellers, disgruntled employees, etc as well as the postings of the idiot pumpers-free speech has its place-but not in an O.R or a cockpit-Musclegel isn't a "cure", just a great way to get much needed protein into patients who have no appetite, food insecurity and subject to serious involuntary muscle loss-just like Juven-w/o the 12 oz 2x a day (which inevitably leads to adherence fatigue)
Obviously your invested some where in MP why would you be posting this anyway for being a good person and informing us? Either you are one of the new hires at MP or the CEO giving a cutr little tidbit you smell a little fishy sort of like TUNA? Could Tuna and the Leader of MP be the same multi-personality ? Hmm.... It maybe a good way to raise funds and maniplulate the investors. keep coming up with new scripts makes for good drama ever think about screen writing? MP SHOULD BE WAY UP! WHY NOT? It should be over $10
actually most providers who choose to work in HIV ARE good people-and if I had any interest in MSLP, given what I've been posting-i'd be a fool-knowing that musclegel is eligible to get medicaid and also knowing the growing need for the product -when could quietly buy and buy and buy while the stock gets further and further driven down!-
When all the justifications are transparent and valued -all thats left is personal attacks, slander , oh and defeat of your positions
By the way, have you considered seeking professional help re. the paranoia you suffer from? my heart goes out to you and yours-there's been so many advances in the field of psychtropic intervention-can I provide you some links here for free treatment?
You don't care about marketing and management then get off here and go to your AIDS hangout and play there. I'm sure you know your way around that neighborhood quite well.
As far as the efficacy of Musclegel - by all means point me to a published study showing "Musclegel's" efficacy. Wait a minue I'll save you time - there are none.
oh it won't be whining sad little basher-it's already a presentation-ever heard of ACT UP-this is already a done deal-and as for your analysis(?) -re. marketing, management -I care less-re. the efficacy of Musclegel-you're WAY out of your area(?) of expertise (if any does exist!)-AIDS patients have a LONG history of making sure they get what they need-oh ever heard of N.Y State Sen. Tom Duane?
I am! To the NIH! and to the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS-as for the pity party reference-this IS an investor banking forum-not a science review panel-so why are you not addressing the bashers speculation about medicaid -a level playing field or no rules at all-
So what. Protein bars have been out forever. Far more acceptable than a gel with no specific research supporting it's effects.
Medicare approval, which will not even happen, wouldn't help this company. As I said before, they would still have to market and distribute the product which would take enormous amount of money and years to make a dent. They do not have the money to do this. And the more time that passes the further they sink.
But as I said, it's a mute point because medicare approval will never happen no matter how great you think it is.
we've tried numerous protein bars-PATIENTS won't eat them!!-the taste, the malability-it just does'nt work-as for your insistance medicaid won't happen -NYS officials seem to disagree, as well as NAPWA, a dozen AIDS organizations and more then 20 IM and ID doc's in the field
the goal is to bring the barriers to utility of any supplement to the lowest possible measure-take away All the barriers in this VERY difficult patient population and we actually have a chance-by the way ever eat 4 of these protein bars a day? ever try to eat 3 meals with that? try it and tell me how you feel after a week -Oh and add 4 ARV's to the mix-try 3TC, Darunavir and Efavaranz with Kaletra and boosted Norvir-Enjoy!
good stuff bio. if you were to guess, how long until ny approval?
Also, the problem with MSLP is management. Nothing more, nothing less. Hopefully they don't bankrupt the company before NY approval.
Finally, if they do get approved they need to be bought by someone who has the resources to run with the approval and the ability to run a company. These simply are not the guys for that job.
speculating on WHEN mediciad approval occurs is based on how soon the company fulfills all the requirements-HCPICS coding, reimbursement review, etc-its in motion-no more then a few months if/when it happens
