    Adam F this is all you can say

    Jim Berliner • 2 days ago
    quit trying to cover up your blatant and ludicrious reporting. Star stumbled into something incredible. To utilize the head of the Endoc dept at JH and his credibility as well as others is at stake for what ever he does. You have no creditentials to discuss his work or what Star has found out. PleaSe enlighten us as to what your PHD is in Biochenical engineeringedical engineering, chemistry, microbiology? Do you even have an MBA. U are just a paid shill for Pharma and tobacco. Your outright erroneous reporting further denigrates the other reporting from the Street. Do the street reading quit Lyinginly hurts you and your employeers.

    Adam you have officially ruined TheStreet's reputation after this response. This is the most childish article I have ever read. First off Star Scientific is still a penny stock they have not proven anything. There is a reason they are conducting medical research and experimentation, just like every biotech company does, to see if their is potential for the new discovery. They really do not have to spend millions of dollars on experimentation if all they wanted was a GNC brand to make money. As for my understanding the medical research and experimentation is ongoing throughout 2013, so why not wait until the end of the year to bash the company? There is a reason the research, once it is complete, gets peer reviewed; to assess the validity of the data. You may be right Adam, but as of today you are providing conspiracy theories on a website that I regularly get my news on and for that I am questioning the validity of TheStreet and all the articles posted on it. You claim Star Scientific might be paying other writers to boost up the company, but how do I know another biotech company is not paying you Adam to shoot them down. For that sir you have lost a long time reader for TheStreet. Good day.

    You better not have any ties to STSI, cause when I send over your articles to the SEC and they investigate you will be outed. Whats the difference between YOU and a pumper ADAM FEUHRERSTEIN? A journalist of any sorts YOU are not. YOU try to make the news the others report it.

    Adam Feuerstein needs to take a basic science course and then maybe he will be qualified to write about medicine and pharmacology. He insists he reads the press reports but seems to miss the peer reviewed journals that publish information about Anatabine. Adam's articles do The Street harm. (As well as educated discourse). His rants are long on personal attacks and short on facts. Adam is short on the stock and in on his understanding of double blind studies. Adam you will not win this argument in the pages of a blog. Science will win this argument with facts. Either Anatabine works or it does not. So far, the evidence is promising. I suspect that Adam was short on the stock when the positive evidence ( in the form clinical trials) ruined his bet on the stock. If you want to bet, go to Las Vegas, but if you are going to use The Street as a vehicle for your manipulative diatribe, first, get educated. Highlight evidence- not simply your opinion- it makes a much better story.

    ...and only marginally effective at that. Celebrex with all of it's harmful side effects helps less than 10% of those who take and yet it's a multi-billion a year drug pushed by big pharma. Hmmm I wonder who's paying Adam to bash Anatabloc?

    Dear Adam,

    I will take the time to respond to your latest contribution over several posts here so you can remember the fraught relationships you have had all through the years with those who attempted to educate you and forced you to correct term papers you submitted filled with personal opinions that are not referenced.

    FDA regulates both finished dietary supplement products and
    dietary ingredients under a different set of regulations than those covering
    "conventional" foods and drug products (prescription and
    Over-the-Counter). Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of
    1994 (DSHEA), the dietary supplement or dietary ingredient manufacturer is
    responsible for ensuring that a dietary supplement or ingredient is safe before
    it is marketed. FDA is responsible for taking action against any unsafe dietary
    supplement product after it reaches the market. Generally, manufacturers do not
    need to register their products with FDA nor get FDA approval before producing
    or selling dietary supplements.* Manufacturers must make sure that product
    label information is truthful and not misleading. Under the FDA Final Rule 21
    CFR 111, all domestic and foreign companies that manufacture, package, label or
    hold dietary supplement, including those involved with testing, quality
    control, and dietary supplement distribution in the U.S., must comply with the
    Dietary Supplement Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPS) for quality
    control. In addition, the manufacturer, packer, or distributor whose name
    appears on the label of a dietary supplement marketed in the United States is
    required to submit to FDA all serious adverse event reports associated with use
    of the dietary supplement in the United States.

    FDA's other responsibilities include product
    information, such as labeling, claims, package inserts, and accompanying
    literature. The Federal Trade Commission regulates dietary supplement

    and foreign facilities that manufacture/process, pack, or hold food for human
    or animal consumption in the United States are required to register their
    facility with the FDA

    Rock Creek Pharmaceutical is a FDA registered and
    inspected facility so this is once again the majority of your points presented in the first page of today's piece is self originated conjecture driven by you laziness and
    ignorance and I am surprised that for a person who has been supposedly writing
    about biotech and pharmaceutical companies and has reached a position of seniority that familiarity with FDA rules and criteria apparently escapes you everyday knowledge.. .

    Oh, Adam—you ARE bleepin' hopeless. Just let the company-- and their
    product-- rise or fall on the strength/weakness of the research results. Your expressions of pseudo-outrage are misplaced and ridiculous. Nobody "presents" data when a study has just been completed. The write up, submission, peer review, and publication of any study takes time. Depending upon how reviewers respond to the submitted draft (e.g., whether there are requests for clarification or revisions, concerns about sampling, procedures, etc), it can take a good while before any article makes it to the ‘in press’ stage and is scheduled for publication. That doesn't prevent STSI from releasing a preliminary statement on the results. And they are hardly the first company—or research institution—to do so.
    Your "Hopkins hoax" is manufactured news, yet you've still managed to inspire a lot of needless spewing and hand-wringing on the part of folks who've done even less homework than you have. Star didn't need to “come clean” about anything. Ladenson was always identified as a consultant. He’s an acknowledged expert on thyroiditis and co-authored an earlier animal study of anatabine. They’d be fools NOT to make use of his expertise. And yes, his Hopkins credentials add to his credibility and cachet. But nobody from STSI ever claimed he (or JH) was running the study. Apparently, though, Ladenson must believe that anatabine is at least worthy of further exploration using human participants. The results may or may not replicate some of the outcomes of his animal research. But you’ve got zero justification for calling the stuff “snake oil” simply because it's marketed as a supplement or because it wasn't developed by a big Pharma outfit like Pfizer. A well
    designed and implemented study carries more weight with me.
    Bottom line (and then I’ll shut up): I appreciate differing and reasoned viewpoints. But the next time I see a link to one of your snarky spit fests (about STSI or any other
    stock), I’ll skip the trip. I'm done.

    high cholesterol is not a disease adam. atherosclerosis is. and the correlation between heart disease and a1c is much greater than with high cholesterol. you know some doctors. ask them if they have patients with cholesterol of 400 with no heart disease and 180 who are all blocked up. the question is do you have any idea what you are talking about.

    Lipitor side effects in Women who are pregnant
    Lipitor is not recommended for pregnant women, as it can cause death or defects in the fetus.

    Side effects occurring amongst children
    Lipitor is considered safe for children above 12 years, and is prescribed in certain cases.

    Conclusion: Is it Worth the Risk?

    It is possible not to experience any side effects. Secondly, the reactions of your body to Lipitor cannot be predicted by your doctor until you take it. Hence, it is important to keep your doctor updated for any reactions. Always be careful, as certain effects need immediate medical attention. Do not take Lipitor before or during pregnancy.

    I give up. Adam wins. I took a significant loss and sold all my shares of STSI this afternoon. The guy's nonsense continues. Star defends itself and the market doesn't seem to care. Adam responds and the market punishes yet again. I moved it all into a biotech mutual fund (FBIOX). Waiting to see if this guy can spread unfounded rumors about THAT, too!

    "Actually, nothing Star does helps the top line..."
    Well, let's see... STSI Revenue Growth:
    3Q12 vs. 3Q11 : 338%
    2Q12 vs. 2Q11 : 512%
    1Q12 vs. 1Q11 : 338%
    4Q11 vs. 4Q10 : 543%
    3Q11 vs. 3Q10 : 90%
    3Q11 is the quarter when Anatabloc was launched.
    So that one sentence alone disqualifies the author. He did not even review the numbers. Educated analysts know that a startup venture is neither expected nor advised to be profitable. All that matters is revenue growth. How long did it take for Facebook to break even? Launched in 2004 and turned its first profit in 2009.
