If clinical trials showed failure of the efficacy
of Levulan then it would be over. The stocks
collapse is not due to anything other than very poor
expectation management on the part of DUSA management. They
should never have publicly discussed the agreement until
it was signed. Stupid. They also should never have
hyped up commercialization in their annual report.
HOWEVER, the efficacy of Levulan is not challenged. It has
had excellent results in several applications, any of
which can make this company profitable.
this morning, in a formal statement, Hambrecht and
Quist reiterated a BUY on DUSA and aggresive buying
below 8. They slapped DUSA for their negotiating
practices, but remain impressed with the company and noted
that the future of the company is "hardly dependent"
on the finalizing of the deal that fell
It's delayed dude, but it's not over.
Yes, I agree. My only point is this -- once I've
signed with the car dealer, I stop shopping. DUSA said
they had an agreement (albeit "in principle," and not
"signed") so why would they continue to shop? It sounds
like the problem could have been with their "partner,"
I suggest that anyone who still may have doubts
about the potential value of the levulan product get in
touch with a practising derm and ask the doc if he/she
would be willing to evaluate the background package
that DUSA investor relations
is willing pleased to
It contains all sorts of scientific
background info that mds can evaluate -
I did this
exercise with my derm in miami and noted her positive
evaluation in an earlier posting to this board.Nothing like
talking to those who will ultimately decide the utility
of the product...
The contact person at Dusa
who can forward the package is

Thanks for your response. If phase III results
are true this stock is a real score, however I still
have a problem believing management could be so dense!
That answer just seems too easy to believe! I am not
born or raised in usa. This does not limit me of
posting my comments and thoughts. The reason i came over
your board because one of your member came to our
board putting up all kind of old negative information.
check the reality......
reality 1: hyalf's
product was approved.
reality 2: dusa lost the
reality 3: dusa stock is going
reality 4: hyalf stock price is going up.
the last message that i will post on your board.
This board is breaking down into fan bickering. I
don't want HYHALF posters to go if they have a strong
story to tell. The big issue with HYALF is efficacy. Is
there new data that has been published that shows it
has caught or passed DUSA in efficacy? If there is,
let's see it because it might change my mind about
DUSA's prospects. If there is not, then HYHALF's
prospects relative to DUSA's are probably very limited. To
all HYHALF supporters, where's the beef? If it's
there I'd love to see it.
Anybody know which institutions hold DUSA? I
think alot of the volatity of the market is being
caused by institutions dumping stocks at the slightest
sign of a stocks weakness. Also I would never invest
in a penny stock like HYALF, I don't care what their
product is. You want to talk about stock manipulation,
trade on the Nasdaq BB or PinkSheets! I believe that it
is harder to get drug approval in the US than
pratically anywhere else in the world, so what makes HYALF a
lock for approval here?
Another thought even if
HYALF and Levulan are both approved, which one is the
consumer (insurance company) going to pay for? My guess is
the one that requires the least amount of treatments.
DUSA has a good product which has been successful in
its trials; it will find another partner in the next
6 months and it in the long run will be a winner.
The hardest thing for an investor is to stick to
their guns when everyone is running for the doors.
Dusa's not a scam, I think. I like the product. I
think light therapy has a way toi go and Dusa was at
the forefront. Nope I think its the stock peddlers
who are scamming on a nice little company with a good
idea but too controlled by the "insiders"
at last week's activities - Everybody for sure knew
the "talks" were bogged down. The stock continued to
slide while our friends on the internet were screaming
"buy now!" (as they were probaqbly
That's where the NASD may step in. Also - if This stuff
(PLT) has potential but no sales and no buyers , no
earnings, no real product, but a good idea , escpecially
for cervical cancer applications , if all that is
true - unless someone buys them out for no reason -
whats it wotrth? - its an idea withj a partial
So i hope all the hpesters walk away and leave the
company to itself. I think theres a real thing
But that wont happen - they'll be in here touting the
stock as soon as I post this - its all OK
now, I'm dflat - iof the stock goes back up tp 8 or 9
I am actually selling sahort as opposed to selling
naked calls (my prewviousa strategy.
If it drops
to 5 , I may take a trading shot as long as I can
saell calls against it (like the DEcember 5's at
thqats my exact strategy - i've made big dollars in it
on both sides so far - maybe now i'll be wrong. if
so - c'est la vie
but to current stockholders
- i still say - beware - it could all dissapear.
First, your grammer could use some improvement.
Second, you are the most annoying chatter on this board.
If there is any cognitive functioning left in that
very little brain of your's you would take this hint
and leave. I'm sure i speak for all DUSA
shareholders. Go away we don't want your opinion anymore!!!!!
