Hey Wood, to me the reason Stoney wants to run a trial on this compound he didn't intend to file for HAE because this compound could be used for cancer treatment or others.
Fauci: "If scientists could find an antiviral drug that targeted the larger group of viruses that Zika belongs to, for instance, they could knock out several threats. “You would automatically get chikungunya, West Nile, yellow fever, Zika and dengue with one shot,” he says.
Stonehouse: "We prefer to have some continuity of funding and not have to wait, but you know it’s federal government." "And we expect that the Phase 1 of 4430 will be done in the third quarter. So you know, hopefully we have some continuity of funding to keep the program going."
How many months did they/we waste? As I often said they are REACTIVE, NOT PROACTICE.
No Rapiwab and/or 4430 stockpilingS. Without money from Rapiwab and/or 4430 stockpilings, BioCryst can’t afford to get Avoralstat, 7353, and others in pipeline going. Market is considering that BioCryst will run out of money by the end of this year.
Speaking of Rapiwab stockpiling, we are in the middle of January which is the peak of flu season and no Rapiwab stockpiling then we have to wait until the next flu season. Unless the flu viruses repeat 2009 swine flu which started in April. With current expiring of Tamiflu and Relenza in stockpile, HHS/BARDA/CDC are gambling for NOT stockpiling Rapiwab. Noted that 2009 swine flu WHO reported 14,000 deaths in US and 18,000 deaths in worldwide then two years later the report said about 500,000 deaths worldwide.
"that's why I sold BCRX 6 years ago"
Hey Wood, did you missed type? that's why I sold "SHORT" BCRX 6 years ago instead?. Because I have never known you were long.
Jefferies upgraded BCRX on Jan 6 but the stock price went lower since due to lousy market. Yesterday I said Jefferies "pump and dump". Today Jefferies came out and reiterated BCRX as five top growth stock pick. That tell me Jefferies did their DD and stick with the gun. I apology with what I said yesterday.
Map, only three days left for 2015. I doubt it's going to happen EOY. As I said before HHS/CDC are usually reactive, NOT proactive. When things happen they do it to protect their jobs, NOT for us.
That's ok. But don't listen too much into "Ying Yang" story from Wood and forget time to hop back on the train. :)
on the train today or you just stand there and chat with Wood?
you said " i voted with my feet today, knowing the stoney is going to say that line again, i'll buy it back if he doesn't…"
