One does wonder where the increased sales volume is coming from. If the MMs are supplying it by selling short they will march the price back down to cover fairly soon. It doesn't seem logical to think long suffering longs are selling into this (tho some traders may be)
Since the results were measured after only six weeks I was pleased that stabilization was defined as zero growth. But I was surprised that the mets in the control arm (carbotax) showed 67 percent stable/shrinkage. I know the release said that was in line with norms but isn't that higher than norms? Should the 86 percent treated arm figure improve - or to put it another way - does the disparity between arms increase as time goes on?
And since we're getting a 6wk report when we've passed the12week scan point, does it take an extra six weeks to read the topline data? Or is all the data (HPV,RAS, etc.) analyzed together?
