To quote Dr.LOL...“This is hysterically funny.” The quote pertains to the “fact” that in an article published in JAMA by Angus DC, entitled The search for effective therapy for sepsis: back to the drawing board?, Dr. Angus does not mention Cytosorbents and as she indicates the researchers at UPitt must either not know about Dr.Chan’s work or worse, that Dr. Angus does know about Dr.Chan’s work but finds it so inconsequential that it is not even worth mentioning. She even goes on to give a very concise overview of what she views as the main crux of the article when questioned as to what the article specifically says that leads her to these conclusions. So as not to misrepresent her response, I’ll include it here:
“In essence it says nothing has been proven effective even though animal and studies and early stage human studies looked promising. Angus then goes on to discuss his view that the underlying theories of sepsis are wrong, that sepsis is a very broad terms with multiple causes and very different patient types. In particular, he debunks the theory that sepsis results in "unhelpfully exuberant" host responses (sound familiar LOL) He cites another paper in this edition of JAMA that the host response may in many cases be suppressed rather than overly exuberant. He makes no reference to Cytosorbents at all.”
Without reading the article she mentions, her remarks leaves one to believe that CytoSorbents Inc.’s medical device used to treat sepsis has been developed along faulty medical theoretical tenants and that Dr. Chan and his team of medical researchers should, as the second part of the article’s title implies, go back to the drawing board. In essence, if CytoSorb has such great promise for the treatment of sepsis, why wasn’t Dr. Angus discussing this device in his article that touches upon newer therapeutic approaches as opposed to proclaiming to researchers that it is time to go back to the drawing board regarding the treatment of sepsis?
If like myself, you are left with a perplexing, uneasy feeling that something feels off you would not be alone. After all, Cytosorbents did achieve the European Union regulatory approval for CytoSorb and further awarded a US Army SBIR trauma grant both in 2011, leading one to believe Cytosorbents’s blood purification device to be an effective treatment for sepsis and potentially for other life threatening illnesses as well. Certainly, the first achievement alone is not inconsequential and would not go unnoticed by Dr. Angus, a world renowned researcher of sepsis and critical care services and Chair of the Department of Critical Care Medicine and Director of CRISMA (Clinical Research, Investigation, and Systems Modeling of Acute Illnesses) Center at the University of Pittsburgh.
Thus, with this as a backdrop, I decided I had better go to the source and read Dr. Angus’s article for myself. http://messages.finance.yahoo.com/Stocks_%28A_to_Z%29/Stocks_C/threadview?m=te&bn=55421&tid=58899&mid=58899&tof=18&frt=1#58899
Bertha, if you post any more links like this, I might start to believe the "buyout for billions" theory! Maybe later this evening I'll mellow out with a glass or two of wine and allow myself the fantasy of raising my price target a bit! :)
When you read that description, it is clear that doctors have nothing now to treat sepsis...they talk about trying to elevate the patient's blood pressure if it's low, and putting the patient on oxygen. Those aren't treatments for sepsis! Those are things they could have done in WWII!!
Like others here, I feel as if the timing is perfect for Cytosorb. I really want to see the SHL ASAP to make sure we're forging ahead.
..yawn. LOL LOL You are a typical mb pumptard. For example, you first started posting on the ELTP board in May, when the stock was near the highs for the year, then you posted there the other day about the gains from Dec 30 to Dec 30, 11. LOL LOL That is hysterically funny. I doubt you put any serious money into ELTP in April May at .22, but if you did, you have lost that ragged t-shirt your mommy bought for you last year. LOL LOL
over 1000 posts on the ELTP board in December alone? LOL LOL
Why can't people see that DrLOL is a long that trades in and out? She likes to poke and get a rise out of people while she's waiting. It's funny how people take things so personally here, it's just a message board.
All i got tosay is..
I, like OU, put the bashers on iggy long ago, but by disassembling their arguments, we learn so much, thanks to those who contribue..
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK...
