    Joe, DO NOT NEGOTIATE with any company until the FDA approves or denies the nda for the generic version of midodrine. We know the trial was completed recently and I'm sure you're aware of the leverage you will have to close an excellent deal for shareholders. - respectfully, the Weasl (lol)

    our poor little doggie Chtp, abandoned to the pound, nobody (BP) wants to provide a home. ___________________________________________________________

    Chtp put out a p.r. last month, 3/15, with quarterly and year end earnings. No c.c. - I suppose they could do the same this month, Zzzzzzz. - One can only hope Joe has "sources", would be nice if he can get his hands on a copy the midodrine trial results. Wave the failure in front of Biogen execs ? Lol. A partnership or BO will be a completely separate event from the 1st quarter earnings release. I think deal making is over till we see the FDA decision on that NDA for Proamatine. (sic)

    Midodrine Update
    February 8, 2012

    FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and Shire have come to an agreement for Shire to conduct two additional clinical trials to verify the clinical benefit of the drug ProAmatine (midodrine HCL). While these trials are taking place, CDER’s proposal to withdraw approval of midodrine has been put on hold.

    Should CDER determine that Shire has failed to adhere to the terms and timeframes in the joint agreement, as outlined in a December 2, 2011 letter1 to Commissioner of Food and Drugs, Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D., or that the clinical trial results fail to verify the drug’s clinical benefit, Shire has agreed to have FDA withdraw approval of the New Drug Application for ProAmatine and to waive its opportunity for a hearing.

    if data is a bust, we're going to love our doggie Chtp : )

    -The replies have made this a valid thread. Thanks

    - We have our work cut out for us. "Under no obligation to post results publicly" ...I must be honest, I have done NO dd on the shire drug. Could they have outstanding results ? We must be objective . Do not allow our $$ in Chtp to skew our analysis of the Shire trial. IF we can find it. I estimate 2 months minimum from trial end to data release........ok, forget all that. The FDA will make a decision, I guess. ? Sorry about the babble, the remove feature will be in play tomorrow.

    FDA site, a quick glance of Midodrine history with them.

    bb44, - I enjoyed your reply. - I'll stand by my "new melanoma trial" ie: new dosage, new timetable - Data used towards ph III design will not incorporate the lower dose result.

    - "trial that is currently producing the best in class data" - Who said this and where can I find it, thanks.

    - "relaunch (are) occurring because their data is that good" - I'm not aware of published data for the T cell Lymphoma trial, you've seen it ? Link.

    The gentleman jbem777......It's nice to see an intelligent, educated investor in Oncs. - "a faster conclusion to the study than originally planned." An excellent explanation justifying the term relaunch. Reading his post, at no time did he say EP/IL must be working. The jump from new parameters in the trial to -showing efficacy- cannot be made. Not yet. end of discussion , lol ! : )

  • daweasl652 daweasl652 Apr 7, 2014 11:45 AM Flag

    lady.domina2 - you are an astute investor and you are correct. The melanoma trial, 9 months after full enrollment Oncs announces "21 new patients to be enrolled at a higher dosage and increased dosing frequency" - It should be obvious to investors, Oncs has not found the MTD, essentially starting a new melanoma trial, the only reason to change dosage is to improve on existing trial results. - The re-launch of T cell lymphoma trial, same thing - to go, back tonight, with examples of failed ph II trials, data mining used to announce "moving on to ph III" .

  • daweasl652 daweasl652 Apr 5, 2014 4:58 PM Flag

    .....sorry to clutter the board with messages .....but my reasons to guess Melanoma - The ph II trial had full enrollment last June per the Oncs p.r. , open label, I believe 25 patients. The data generated by this trial should be near conclusive, something I believe ASCO prefers. We've all seen the DSMC give the green light on safety and efficacy looking at interim trial results, only to see missed primary endpoint (fail) at trial conclusion. The MCC trial, planned enrollment of 15 patients, began in 2011. Three years later still enrolling, well till now. I would prefer an MCC abstract at ASCO. April 21st our speculation will end, if abstract not accepted, I hope Oncs will make available on their site.

    With all due respect to everyone on Ihub, It's nice to see the CONFIRMATION of my earlier posts.
    - Dr. Adil Daud, M.D., oncologist, melanoma specialist- with his expertise in the melanoma field, Dr. Daud's experience puts him in a position of high demand. . . .. . . . . .. . .
    - With respect to his AACR schedule this weekend. Those presentations have no correlation to Oncosec Medical. _______________ 4/4/14, Friday afternoon.

    - Reading the abstract title, looks to be a Merck abstract,..there will be no p.r. from Oncosec ....... no connection whatsoever. ______________ 4/5/14, Sat., 10am

    call it an educated guess, lol , the asco abstract submission, melanoma ph II.

  • daweasl652 daweasl652 Apr 5, 2014 9:47 AM Flag

    I guess we'll know more Sun. afternoon. - Reading the abstract title, looks to be a Merck abstract, their anti PD-1 drug, MK-3475. , in a melanoma trial. .....There will be no p.r. from Oncosec Medical - nada, zip, zero, no connection whatsoever. Clinical trials have not begun using Oncs EP/IL-12 and anti PD-1 drugs. Stay tuned. : )

    Daud presenting at AACR this Sunday......

    jepetersonus, I appreciate it when an investor is willing to do some serious research into an equity they hold. That being said, I hope you're not adverse to an opposing opinion : )

    Dr. Adil Daud, M.D., oncologist, melanoma specialist. - With his expertise in the melanoma field, Dr. Daud's experience puts him in a position of high demand. Lead investigator for the melanoma trial gives the Oncs EP/IL-12 technology an increased 'credibility', for lack of a better word.

    With respect to his AACR schedule this weekend. Those presentations have no correlation to Oncosec Medical. Yes, a partnership with Merck does seem likely especially with the addition of Dr. Pierce, personally I hope Merck is willing to sign on with Oncs by summer, after a thorough review of data/abstracts that should be released in May. The MCC paper.

    Who completely understands the post below and can explain the argument for failure.

    kahn_boonie • 6 hours ago Flag

    ONCS is a sham, or in another word, an imitation. INO's approach is potentially revolutionary, but fraught with risks. INO's choice to deliver plasmids as vaccines has a hell of a lot better probability of success to elicit sufficient immune response. One of the biggest questions is whether electroporation will enable sufficient delivery of these plasmids (i.e. will doses be delivered high enough) in sufficient quantities to elicit adequate T cell response. As I understand it, INO is not delivery milligrams of these plasmids, as that would be prohibitively expensive. Delivering chemotherapeutical agents, which is what ONCS has licensed the electroporation technology to do from INO, will require nanomolar concentrations to be achieved within the target cells. That will be orders of magnitude more "actives" required to be delivered. Which one are you willing to bet on, a manned mission to Mars (INO) or a manned mission to Alpha Centauri (ONCS)? You can certainly bet on both; but which one do you think has a better probability of success? Less
    cribbed from the chtp board.

    With the 1st quarter ending , I want an earnings call this month. No more hiding from investors. Put it out there Chtp, answer questions. Typical generic answers are the norm in bioland. They CAN say "we're actively seeking a partner and/or a buy out." They can also say, "initial offers did not meet our expectations" , but I doubt they would actually put that out there. borgati4, your posts are appreciated, thnks.
