On Wednesday January 14 at 4:30 PM PST (7:30 PM EST), Dr. Fiorino will be presenting at the Biotech Showcase™ 2015 Conference in San Francisco, CA.
The Power Point slides were not downloadable from the Web conference. Brainstorm may post them on their website later. For anyone who's been long in BCLI there was nothing really new presented. The only thing that peaked my interest was when Fiorino started talking about how BCLI's value as compared to it's peers (and their stock price) is way undervalued....in his humble opinion.
In anticipation of what big Toni has to say this evening. Here's a preview: "Not much new". I know I am coming off as a basher, but by god this stock deserves a good two fisted bashing. As do I, for not selling in the $7's. Course I am still holding...why not at this point. I still got a good $.50 before I go red.
Experimental MS treatment halts disease ‘in its tracks’
(Seattle Times) A Seattle man is among two dozen MS patients in a promising clinical trial that found high-dose immune-suppressing drugs and stem-cell transplants may stop the progress of the disease in those who've failed usual care.
Seven years ago, Mike Kearny of Seattle was so sick and weak from multiple sclerosis, he had to use the handrail to pull himself up the stairs of his Wallingford neighborhood home.
Daily injections of powerful drugs hadn’t slowed the neurodegenerative disease; tests showed growing numbers of lesions in his brain. The once-active cyclist and climber started missing work as a cardiac catheter lab nurse, and — worse — activities with his wife, Casey Castaneda, and his boys, Owen, then 2, and Jack, 7.
“I was not doing well,” recalled Kearny, now 47, who was first diagnosed in 2006.
So when local doctors offered a gamble on an experimental treatment that aimed to use high-dose chemotherapy and stem-cell transplants to stop multiple sclerosis (MS), Kearny took the chance.

And it burns, burns, burns,
The ring of fire, the ring of fire.
Thinking we are going back to the high 3's...tough to watch my profit slip away each day like this (and yes I was stupid not to sell in the 7's...hindsight is a #$%$). Hoping the conference presentations help but not holding much hope. Probably time to stop watching everyday and hope for a better day down the road..
Selling for a loss here - that would be stupid. Selling for a profit - hard to blame people for doing that. I'm happy to hold tight since I'm sitting on a $3.50 a share average.
