some of you are losing focus. does anyone believe
that this stock is going down from here? don't get
shaken out...tomorrow will be up. the fda has got to
stress "severe restrictions' TO COVER THEIR ***.
CELGDOC...TALK TO ME AFTER ONE MONTH OF SALES ARE IN.in fact,
call dr. gruber at nyu med ctr....ask him how his
trials with thalidomide vs. CANCER are doing.
detroit...great results on bladder cancer. AIDS, ETC. people, we
just cleared out the hypesters and traders...this is a
great day...the worst of the media bashing is
(if the company decides to fast track, could be
as soon as either 90-120 days. They pay the FDA a
large sum to get an approvable letter (I think that's
what it is) and they get a determination whether it'll
pass. It shortens the process from well over a year.
Hope that helps. My fingers are crossed and intend to
add to my long position. (But refuse to watch on an
Good luck to all.
Actually, your statement is partially incorrect.
Once a drug has
been approved, the FDA cannot tell
a doctor what to prescribe it
for. All they can
do is set up some requirements and educational
mandates to be met and hope it's used effectively...thus
the pregnancy testing,etc. Federal law allows a
doctor to use any approved drug in off-label use, not
just what the drug has been approve effective for.
Thank you, but dundillo has just answered my
question which seems to be that doctors can indeed
prescribe for other ailments as they see fit as long as the
drug has been proved effective in that regard. Thank
Thank you for your response. But will Thalomid's
tight controls prevent doctors from prescribing it for
other uses or will doctors still have the same freedom
to prescribe it for other uses as they already do
with any other drug that has achieved FDA approval ??
I beleive the AIDS approval will come fast - but
it really doesn't matter because the drug works and
helps people suffering from AIDS wasting. Now that it
is available - Dr's xcan prescribe it for whatever
they want. Approval for AIDS would , I beleive, be a
positive in that it would virtually guarantee insurance
I suspect that a lot of folks were expecting a
broader approval than what was actually received. The
fact that the cancer trials are really just beginning
and the even Celegene is hoping to produce a safer
derivative drug for cancer treatment all have had negative
impacts. The press has had a lot of good mentions in the
last couple of days, but only as sidelines so far.
Once researchers are able to anounce positive results
for cancer and aids on a major scale I suspect it
will remain fairly flat until a short squeeze occurs
if most shorts are not out already, which I suspect
is why the price surge occurred just before
approval. I suspect that we will have to wait until initial
order volumes have established a pattern and its
obvious that CELEGENE will be in the BLACK or close to it
the third quarter. If this doesn't occur we may find
our shares diluted again as they put out another
offerring to raise more capital before approval occurs for
cancer next year. I am positive that both AIDS Wasting
and the cancer approvals will occur as long as the
trial testing does not identify any addition problems
not already identified. Most current cancer
treatments are far more dangerous than Thalomid. Radiation
in doses high enough to treat cancer can eventually
kill the patient if they were continued indefinately.
The therapist bets he/she can kill the cancer first
before having to stop to avoid giving the patient a
Most drugs used in CEMOTHERAPY are at
least as dangerous if not more so than Thalomid from
what I've read. I have known too many people who
choose to live short lives with cancer than to risk
living a little longer but as near vegtables as a result
of the current treatments. If tests prove out as
well as early results indicate. The drug will be a GOD
send for cancer victims and their families.
No, let me refresh your memory - You said that
the FDA will never approve Thal. You were completely
wrong, so please have the guts to admit that and then
give us your opinion of what will happen. Don't change
your story - have some integrity
I've been saying this for months - Thalidomide is
a useless drug and approval will have no effect on
Celgene's stock price. DUH Only idiots are invested in this
stock. I like stocks that go up much better. I'm
invested in REAL companies that have actual earnings and
are not dependent on bullshit like thalidomide.
