    I can hardly wait to hear Ray's take on the VA news tonight....

    It will probably go something like this...

    "The obama administration has deep cuts planned for our military and so naturally that will result in less soldiers with TBI and so I wouldn't be reading too much into this news because of that".

    In any event..this news about Avnr's collaberation with the department of veterinary Affairs is really something and will bring about a great deal of awareness about this drug.

    • I just read the PR.
      So Avanir is doing a study of the prevalence of PBA in traumatic brain injury in the military.
      Hopefully, as opposed to PRISM and other Avanir sponsored "polls", physicians familiar with the disease will be interviewing the patients and assessing them for PBA.
      Would be nice if these physicians were independent from Avanir but that is not likely given that Avanir is probably paying for the study.
      (I guess total operating expenses are going up at least a bit).
      Physicians taking care of military veterans with traumatic brain injury should already be familiar with PBA, so I don't see much of a bump to Avanir's sales coming from this project.

    • Ray will likely comment: "SSRIs are a better treatment and SSRIs don't cost as much." " PBA is a small market" "My hope is the pain potential..."

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
