    drum suffers from inflammation of the mouth, it seems, and possibly the only remedy for him is a bottle of anatabloc. not the anatabloc itself, mind you, but the actual bottle...administered just so...

    the way I read it is that they have until about april 17th to attain a price of one dollar or higher, and must then maintain that price for ten consecutive days. feb 23rd is the date they must FILE a split PROPOSAL by in case they fail to lift the price to one dollar for ten days as of april 27th.

    they need to file a preliminary proxy statement for a shareholder meeting for a reverse stock split PROPOSAL. I don't believe it's conditional on a reverse split. they need to have a plan ready just in case. no reason they can't withdraw the proposal if not needed at the time, if I understand correctly.

    i actually feel a little sorry for him. thanksgiving is generally when people spend time with family and loved ones. it sadly occurs to me that WE are his family. i don't even mean that offensively. families are often dysfunctional anyway, and i believe he views us as possibly part of his only family that still recognizes him...obviously to us, him being a piece of the dysfunctional part.

    although i read recently where the 'good' ole dr oz and dr rozien both agreed that drinking coffee helps fight against ALL DISEASES! Yes, ALL DISEASES! Talk about a money-making potential in coffee. If someone could decipher and harness the compound(s) within the coffee bean with 'healing' properties, and produce a drug from that, a billionaire he would be. Jonnie?

    Platform Technology ~

    the sky is falling, the sky is falling!

    only those with breakthrough ideas and technologies dare to step out, take a stand, take a risk.
    not you, no, you remain where you are, where it's warm and comfortable, bravely calling people names behind the safe confines of your computer.

    too funny!

  • The shareholder meeting is definitely worth a listen. They refer to what we possess in anatabine as a platform technology. As we've heard, rock is pursuing multiple drugs to treat a variety of disorders. And while not on the short-term horizon, as they seek to maximize potential profit, they eventually want a formulation to compete with over-the-counter products like Tylenol, if I understood correctly.

    Platform Technology ~ "technological form from which various products can emerge without the expense of a new process/technology introduction."

    "A pharmaceutical platform technology can ease future research work. Suppose if a researcher formulates a new dosage form using a certain drug along with the optimized amount of excipients, then the same excipients can be used by other researchers, just changing the active ingredient and acquiring a new drug delivery dosage form. This would ensure less time and money being spent on finalizing the concentration, amount, type, etc. of excipients used. Thus, more stress can be given on studies related to the active drug. For example, if an eye drop solution uses certain polymers as excipients, then a platform technology can be established whereby other researchers can use the optimized polymers, and just change the active drug, leading to formulation of a whole new drug-dosage, with less money and time spent on the selection of the excipients."

    I don't mind them listening so much, as long as they don't participate in discussions/questions. they're not part of the family, if you will. would we allow isis to listen and participate in our military strategies?

    ironically, there is MUCH hope in an obituary column for the person who knows God! one of your problems is that your perspective is so short-sighted, focused only on the present. you actually believe life is better in this life than the next, even with all the sickness, death, famine, wars, hate, lying, cheating, aging, aches, disappointments, taxes, etc. trust me, the next life is far better for some. so yes, much hope may be found in an obituary column.

    Remember the mission and vision of rock. They are seeking to fulfill both, and are unable to without pursuing anatabine as a drug(s). They are a For Profit company focused on Research, the means toward the potential profit.

    Mission: "Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals is specifically focused on research, development and commercialization of compounds and formulations targeting the mechanisms of the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway."

    Vision: "Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals exists to exploit its current intellectual property to develop novel anti-inflammatory and smoking cessation medicines to combat common chronic disorders affecting both the US and world populations."

    The DOWN-Side to RCPI - a "10 Bagger?"

    a_brown3 a_brown3 Nov 20, 2014 5:11 PM Flag

    I like what you're saying here, abi.

    my questions for your friend, though.
    1. is he one of the 597 current shareholders (give or take)?
    2. if not, why in the world not?
    3. if so, how many shares does he own (just b/w you and he)?
    because even if it's only a 2 bagger, I don't know anywhere else one can make 100%, and right now, he can purchase 200,000 shares for only $32,000. if money is tied up, he could "untie it up" to make 1000%, buy against credit cards, the house, or whatever.

    don't get me wrong. I believe as he...and have many shares. just curious if he actually owns, too.

    very true. the likes of drum and such would quickly fold, their arrogant facade would crumble, and they would succumb to the persona of a nervous little child. of course, this will now be refuted in rebuttal for they have yet to be charged, and even then, they will justify their frightened ratting as not having been paid enough for their actions, or some other excuse to enable themselves to continue to hold their head high (in their own eyes anyway). what shallow security the 'strong' bear.

    mullan is undoubtedly incredibly interested in both nilvad and anatabine. he speaks of a drug for alzheimer's possibly needing a 'cocktail' of compounds to be more effective.

    nilvad is in phase III now (amazingly few compounds currently in phase III for alz). it crosses the blood brain barrier, decreases the amount of amyloid in brain (and actually accumulates in the brain), and seems to plateau cognitive abilities with no decline in patients with mild cognitive impairment.

    anatabine also easily crosses the blood brain barrier, decreases inflammation, and decreases production of amyloid in the brain.

    it just seems likely he may be looking to marry the two in some manner to achieve better and more efficient results.

    evidence of both linked together? not sure on that...only hunches.

    RCPI PR outlines important progress

    i'd guess with the increased ind exposure, as well as upcoming presentations, they're being proactively protective. an encouraging stance, seeing they recognize their possession of something important to protect. not simply registering a patent here and there, but retaining "a major, national intellectual property advisory and investment bank, as a strategic advisor, to monitor, value and evaluate the growth of the Company's intellectual property (IP) portfolio."

    unfortunately, a company endures many hurdles to assume the benefits of delivering a novel drug discovery to market.

    rock has appealed and is presenting a plan to regain compliance, as stated.

    the nasdaq hearing panel will oblige and "stay the suspension".

    they have a plan in order, and vested interests will apply pressure to ensure plan is executed and delisting issues dissipate.

    No joke, drum. you are in for a monumental surprise one day. for you to NOT believe in a God or a life after proves YOU are the one with the greater faith. not a better faith, not a true faith, but without a doubt, a greater faith than i.

    btw, i personally hate religion. and what's funny, is that you are just as fanatical as i am, only an anti-God fanatic. how is that working for you?

    1. you are not a woman, morgueana, regardless of your desire to be one.
    2. this IS an encouraging letter. not only is that obvious, but the fact that it receives numerous thumbs down, while you receive only thumbs up...that's funny.
    3. cease and desist message? haha..."sustainability", "expects maintain compliance". that means to continue your progress, but remain compliant.
    4. your final statement is truly ironic. by your alias, 666, there's no wonder you find no hope in an obituary column. but for myself and many others, an obituary column may be FULL of hope! this life is a vapor. to have a relationship with God, and die physically when one's time arrives, is a sorrowful, yet amazing time to look forward to. when my father passed last year, we held a celebration for him instead of a funeral! a sad, but joyful time indeed! there is STILL hope for you.
