    "Prematurity has long been one of the biggest challenges in obstetrics because we haven't had any way to help the patients at highest risk," said Dr. Garite, who is also professor emeritus and past EJ Quilligan Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of California, Irvine, and director of Research for Obstetrics at Pediatrix Medical Group. "Now we do: Progesterone is proven to help prevent premature birth for some women."

    Overview of SMFM Recommendations

    SMFM Evidence Base

    Findings from randomized trials suggest that women with singleton gestations, no prior preterm birth, and short cervical length not exceeding 20 mm at 24 weeks or before can be offered vaginal progesterone supplied as 90 mg gel or 200 mg suppository. This treatment is linked to lower rates of preterm birth and perinatal morbidity and mortality.

    Overview of ACOG Committee Opinion
    Women in whom short cervical length is confirmed should have a review of risk factors for preterm birth, as well as of management options.
    TVU measurement of cervical length should be performed only when interventions to reduce risk for preterm birth are available.


    Barriers to Universal Cervical Length Screening


    According to Dr. Garite, cost-effective analyses have shown that TVU cervical length measurements done once midgestation for all singleton pregnancies to identify and treat patients with a prematurely short cervix can save many millions, or even billions, of dollars if done in all pregnant women. This risk assessment and prevention strategy will also save lives.

    "The expenses of neonatal intensive care when babies are born very early can be incredibly high," Dr. Garite said. "So too can be the costs of ongoing care for premature babies who have ongoing developmental disabilities or medical needs. For every treated high-risk patient who delivers at term instead of early, payers will save a tremendous amount of money, and more importantly, more moms will have healthier babies."

    1) Progesterone does prevent preterm birth. KVA Pharmaceuticals proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    2). Vaginal progesterone gel is a way to administer progesterone, as shown by FDAs approve of Crinone

    Columbia Laboratories has $25million in Cash on the books and Watson owns 65% of this drug. I am wondering if they Watson would be willing to pay for 65% of the new trial with Columbia paying for 35% and rerunning it.

    Any thoughts? No bashers please, this is a serious convo.

    Looking at the data, most of the bad data was generated from 1 site in the US "Mid East". If we are going to cherry pick data, can we throw this site away?

    No? Why not? Because it would be bad statistical practice. You cant just throw out data points because they favor the drug! If we cant throw out our bad data points, why the hell is the FDA reviewer doing it? Reviewers have to look at the totality of the data.

    This is ridiculous. This idiot thinks he is being a hero, but he is actually jepordizing the lives of children. Shame on this FDA reviewer!

    1) Regulators Trying To Control Forecasted Damage From a Fallout
    The federal reserve recently announced that it would be conducting rigorous financial tests for banks to measure European contagion would look like.Germany has already been conducting such experiments in think tanks, though the tone is upbeat. The conclusion of the German think tanks was that the “contagion of the same extent as after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy (is) very unlikely.” One has to wonder why major financial regulators are conducting such experiments, our guess is to plan an orderly default of Greece.

    2) High Yield Rates W/ Future Limitation of EFSF

    Even cracks in the bonds of even Germany are starting to appear. Italian bond yields have risen above that dangerous 7% mark, which will once again will test the European Financial Stability Fund(EFSF). One has to wonder how long the EFSF will wait before their hands are tied by the bundestag.

    3) Fiscal Austerity = GDP Contraction

    Growth is slow and budget cuts in Europe will only further slow down the world economy. As European economies start to cut from their spending, this will lead to contractions of GDPs.

    The United States itself, despite having a generous fiscal policy, is experiencing a slower rate of growth than expected. Even economic optimists like President of Federal Reserve Bank of New York President, William C. Dudley, had to acknowledged GDP growth below estimates.

    "Its abt time US economy to recover. It has been pushed down for too long and too far. Expecially the housing market. "


    -We had a recovery. Look at the stock market since the 2008 crash.

    -Housing market was a bubble. It wont get good for another 8 years.

    -Just because you are poor doesn't mean we didn't have an asymmetric recovery, the rich grew more than the poor.

    http://www.ritspy.com/2011/11/orbcomm-inc-orbc-financial-intelligence-analysis/


    ORBCOMM Inc., a satellite-based data communication company, operates a two-way wireless data messaging system optimized for narrowband data communications in the United States and internationally. The company’s system consists of a network of 27 low-Earth orbit satellites, and accompanying ground infrastructure.



    The company was contracted by the coast gaurd for development of AIS satellites. However, the satellite Orbcomm sent failed in 2010. This led to a decrease in earnings revenue, due to adversely affecting AIS subscriber base.

    Why do ships need AIS systems? AIS primary function is for collision avoidance. However, in the future the coast gaurd is looking to replace RACON systems with AIS systems for Aids To Navigation(ATON). Other use of AIS systems is vessel traffic services, Search and rescue and accident investigation.

    On 11/14/2011 the stock of ORBCOMM Inc. (ORBC) is currently at $2.95 witha market cap of 134.72M. It is important to note that this company has $80 million dollars in cash alone. Almost 50% of the company’s market cap is in cash. A solid cash position can help ORBC cushion from any adverse market affects.

    The company might be due for a rally due to increased income net incoming from operations. The company posted a $0.9m net income in the third quarter(9/30/11) versus a loss of $.4 million in third quarter 2010 Due to a positive trend in earnings and the plenty of cash cash on hand, we are initiating a buy raiting.
