I would hope the Chinese compare results to a control group before trying to assign benefit. In recent years, some really outstanding studies have come out of China. They are free to take more risks than us and as a result then sometimes accelerate the discovery process. I am hopeful that this report is just such a case.
If they were actually close to a deal you would see price behavior much like what BCLI went through when it jumped to $8.50 over a two day period only to be disappointed by management. CUR management does not operate like BCLI so I don't think we will have a run up on false and/or implied actions. When people close to the company sense a real deal in the wind the volume will be multiples of the daily average. I think we are just returning to a share price that the management and the longs believe is the bare minimum for continued support i.e. price $1.00 / share. Management clearly does not want to be forced to reverse split shares so I believe they are quietly off the record trying to marshal up price support to avert an action that would clearly harm the company.
