lee they will take it to the MTD whatever that is and 450 to 900 albeit is a double or 100% increase but if the signal is still strong on the efficacy side and we can only A$$UME that it is because we hear very little reporting on CASE STUDY and treatment successes..even that last case where the Woman had cancer mets that spread to her spleen/liver?? and they DISAPPEARED but than she had an increase in her tumour marker CD-125 I think so she went off study---to me this speaks to EFFECT but maybe not as robust as can be achieved--keep in mind that in MTD trial DURABILITY of EFFECT is very important..this will lead to an evetual P-2 trial design that is fully vetted for MTD and safety....
I mean they said NO DOSE LIMITING TOXICITY HAS BEEN SEEN AT THESE HIGHER DOSES....to me that speaks to PUSH THE DOSE HIGHER AND LETS SEE WHERE THIS THING STARTS TO SHOW TOX especially if that higher dose means improved efficacy..iows if there is a DOSE DEPENDENT EFFICACY CURVE...that Im not sure of?
remeber they started at 10mgs per m2 a long time ago nov 2012..we have come a long way baby..this journey is just beginning lee!
With each cohort now the 11th next we get a clearer picture...they have moved slowly and DELIBERATELY so you may be correct and the midline or 675 is chosen..its just that once you get to 675 to push 900 is 275 or 40% higher and the committee may decide to just go ALL IN SO TO SPEAK..thinking that if they see issues they can stop and go to 675 pretty quickly--the protocol calls for 12 more pats allowed on trial once they reach MTD I think??
...I mean every chemo eventually has a MTD and the goal is to push up to that level and than pull back...I think Dr Alex said WE ARE GOING TO PUSH OUR NOVEL DRUG AS FAR AS POSSIBLE so I say 900 is next....its not like this is a LD 50 or LD 100 trial..its not a lethal dose thing in rats..its push what Humans can tolerate...
heres the email I received on it!
Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center
Featured Sunday on 60 Minutes
Gromeier Polio Virus
Researchers, physicians, and patients from the Robert Preston Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke will be featured on two segments on 60 Minutes this Sunday, March 29, at 7 p.m. on CBS.
The story features an investigational therapy developed at Duke to treat aggressive brain cancer. The promising experimental treatment was given to 22 glioblastoma patients, two of whom have been declared cancer free by doctors.
The treatment took more than 10 years of research at Duke to develop. Learn more about this promising advance by visiting the Tisch Brain Tumor Center web site, or watch this short Duke Medicine video.
they are BUYING now grey but as recent as a coupel weeks ago at 32+ they were UNLOADING...truts me..if they were not unloading than they were taking out a PUT and they have helped to push the sp down! Alos I use the IO term losely to include the HEDGIES where most of this action occurs! Like I said I buy the dips and I sell the pops....NOT ALL EVER but about 10% usually! That is how Ive attained FREE and CLEAR CLDX shares..its PLAIN and its SIMPLE!
..they bought the ENTIRE DILUTION at $24.50 or whatever sp several million shares...the stock sp than started to head up..25 than 26 than 27 and so on..we saw the momo crowd come onto our BOARD and they raved about CLDX...all new pumpers...sp continues to climb....the INSTITUTIONS were slowly selling into the runnup...what they did not tell US is they PUT on a short position at about 30-32 in sp....all along SELLING into the final stages of the RUN UP! They booked all the spread from the Dilution sp at 24.50 all the way up to 32+ where we topped out...now the short kicks in and they will make MONEY on the PUT likely all the way down to 24 again!
This is disgusting but legal!
The only thing we can do is be vigilant and stick to our Plan...I sell some at the tops and buy some more at the Bottoms....hold the CORE always!
Sentiment: Strong Buy

....if 28M shares traded yesterday than that means 28M/33.291M=84% of OS traded..thats a huge turnover of float..it speaks to INSTITUTUIONS taking the loss on paper...the SI was very low so no real influence of SHORT INTERESTS means people were very CONFIDENT! That is still LIKELY to be the case imo and the BUYERS will come back but it will be 31 days or more..WASH SALE RULES APPLY!
Keep this in mind longs if you took a loss too!
Trades around 2.15-2.25 share average next 30 days or so and than the BUYERS will come back!
I could be wrong but thats my bet....
hasthegoods..I agree in theory on what you posted but could you give MORE COLOR to your thesis for those of us on the board who may not have your BIO DEPTH? Can you think of any paralel programs in other cancer meds where we see similiar early findings and than later on the TRUE DRUG BENEFIT is revealed as data matures?
What does this suggest to CELG and Vidaza going forward iyo?
Belinostat eventually proved benefit is all I can think of....[Belinostat is a pan-histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitor. According to the manufacturer, it is differentiated from other drugs in this class because it inhibits all 3 classes of the zinc-dependent HDAC enzymes.] SPPI now markets this drug but I can remember ROUGH TIMES early on.....wasnt there some sort of MARKET SELLOFF OF TOPOTARGET over Belinostat....a short play or something I seem to recollect years ago?
SPPI never buys a cancer drug they cant get CHEAPLY!
Brims noted, "While the response rate was the primary endpoint of this study, we believe durability endpoints are the more important measure of efficacy, and this study is ongoing, with too few events for either an assessment of progression free survival or overall survival. We believe these data will be the deciding factor in continuing development for MDS, and we expect these data before YE2015. We remain confident in the potential of pracinostat in AML/MDS and are maintaining our BUY rating."
Furthermore, "We believe duration endpoints are the better gauge of a drug's efficacy than response rate alone, and expect these data to be presented in 2015 as more events accrue. We expect MEIP to present full data from the phase 2 AML trial at EHA (Vienna, Austria, June 11-14) and mature data for the duration endpoints from the phase 2 MDS study at ASH (Orlando, FL, Dec. 5-8)."
I agree w/ him..too many new cats coming and plenty of cash to see it through!
should have done this TRIAL w/ ORR not CR! Fortunately its ONGOING in OS and PFS will prevail I hope over time...prelims are still too early to be meaningful!
STRONG BUY IMO!
