  • Dear Mr. Lefkowitz:

    I was very disappointed to see your announcement this morning regarding your firms investigation of Galena Biopharma, Inc.

    The announcement was very vague, ambiguous, lacked substance and accomplished nothing other than sending the price per share downward during a time when things are finally looking good for Galena (i.e. good new yesterday on GALE-301 at ASCO, PRESENT Phase 3 Trial interim results being announced later this month, etc...). I currently own MANY (6 figures) of GALE and your announcement cost me a lot of money today.

    What is your ulterior motive here as it certainly appears your intentions were to manipulate the stock downward with today's announcement? Are you currently "shorting" GALE, and if so, that is a very unethical practice and interfering with the progress of a company that is trying to help save lives.

    Regards,
    Gene XXXXXXXXXXXX

    I am already retired and volunteer at a local Food Pantry, so I will likely give them some additional financial support, plus my only nephew and his wife just adopted 2 children so I plan on helping them and my siblings out financially. My girlfriend and I will also continue our travels to include Australia and Central/South America, and again visit our favorite place in the world..............Thailand.........

  • Remy:

    Extremely disappointing news today on the PH3 Interim results, to say the least. All of the "positive" information lately (Fast Track Designation, Orphan Drug status on 301 & 302, etc.) certainly suggested we were going to get a GTC recommendation; at a minimum. We (the shareholders) have been lied-to and misled by Galena's Management and BOD in the past so today's news is in some ways not a surprise. I suspect most of you knew much more than you lead us to believe in the past, which is probably why Ryan Dunlap recently sold his shares and no insiders every bought any shares on the open market; all the signs were there; we were all just too naive to think the ultimate manipulation (scheme) was slowly being constructed.

    On a separate note, when will you start paying monies to claimants from the lawsuit? Many of us need the money ASAP to help make ends meet. You see Remy, not all of us make big fat salaries and award ourselves bonuses for running a company into the ground. Plus, you all got a "free" move from gloomy Portland to sunny California at our expense......nice job there too !!!

    As usual, share this email with Mark Schwartz and the rest of your Management Team; and of course, the rest of the thieves on the BOD.

  • Adam Feuerstein - Feuerstein graduated from Emory University with a bachelor's degree in political science. “The upcoming interim analysis of the NeuVax phase III study is meaningless. At best, the independent data monitors will tell Galena to proceed with the study to the final analysis. There's a significant chance the NeuVax study is stopped for futility.”
    David M. Fujii, M.D. - Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesiologist and Electrical / Mechanical / Aeronautics & Astronautics Engineer – “A 70th breast cancer recurrence event in early January 2016 (the most conservative projected date) thus predicts (1) no possibility of NeuVax efficacy equaling 30% or less (the minimum Special Protocol Assessment threshold required for approval by the FDA), (2) less than a 0.5% chance of NeuVax efficacy equaling 50% or less, (3) a 35% chance of NeuVax efficacy between 51% and 78%, and (4) a 65% chance of NeuVax efficacy greater than 78%. This is indeed a strong and highly encouraging signal!”

  • ......he was very wrong on that one and will be wrong on GALE as well.....what a loser..........

    Tam T. writes. "Hi Adam, I'm a big fan of the Feuerstein-Ratain Rule. There's a company called Celator Pharmaceuticals (CPXX - Get Report) that seems fundamentally sound for a microcap oncology company. The drug is a liposome with the traditional 7 + 3 chemo but now reformulated with a different ratio. Celator has a transparent management team and board of directors, with decent phase II data. The company is about to release phase III topline results in a couple of weeks. Based on your F-R Rule, Celator is a sub-$300 million market cap which means there is a 100% chance the topline results will be a bust... Do you believe this Celator study will break the Feuerstein-Ratain Rule?"

    AF: I believe in the supremacy of the Feuerstein-Ratain (F-R) Rule, therefore, the Celator phase III study will fail. Celator's market cap of $65 million is deep inside the sub-$300 million market-cap dead zone from which phase III cancer drug trials cannot escape, per the F-R Rule. This is a prediction, so we'll wait for confirmation from the final results later this quarter, according to Celator guidance.

  • Hi Remy:

    Why is it that I need to learn about such important news from a fellow shareholder this morning well before your PR release this afternoon? Who's in control of communication to shareholders at Galena? Do you even care about shareholder's interest (value)?

    Galena (Dr. M & Dr. P) have so much going for it right now, but your communications to the shareholders is practically non-existent and your BOD and Management Team would appear to the least bit give a #$%$ about us shareholders. Just remember, "what goes around comes around".......

    As usual, please share this message with Mark Schwartz and Management Team, but don't waste you time on the BOD as they are all quite useless and selfish......which hopefully will change soon...............

  • Remy:
    I received my voting Proxy Materials and have a question. Why is it that on Item #1 - "Election of Directors", when I chose to "Vote Individually", it only gave me the choice to vote "For" or "Withhold" for Hillsberg and Gray, and does not give me the choice to vote "Against", as we do with Items #2-#5? It appears May Ann Gray will be a welcome addition to the Board, but Hillsberg needs to go based on his past track record (selling his shares in January 2014) as he is NOT acting n the best interest of us shareholders. Ahn is gone, Kriegsman is going at the end of the month and Chin, Galliker and Nisi will have their day too, but Hillsberg needs to go now that we have the opportunity to vote him off the Board.

    It appears Dr. Bijan Nejadnik was a very welcome addition to the Management Team and has contributed to the recent positive announcements and subsequent increase in price per share value.

    Please advise on my above question and also please forward a copy of this email to Mark Schwartz , Bijan Nejadnik and Mary Ann Gray so they too know my feelings which are similar to many other shareholders with whom I communicate.

    Thank You,

    Hi Gene,

    The voting requirement for Item #1 is by plurality so it is set up different than the others where the requirement is majority. I will pass on your note.

    GALE Management Has Set The Perfect Bear Trap

    It's simple.....they go to court on June 23rd to supposedly finalize the law suit. Once settled, they are allowed to buy stock which just happens to occur just before Interim results are released/announced at the end of June. Look for major insider purchases the day after the settlement....IMO..................

    Either this company's Management Team is extremely under-staffed and "rushed" when they do things or they are just plain sloppy and do not pay attention to detail; I am leaning towards the later of the two. A perfect example is the March 2016 10K when they accidentally forgot to put the word "not" into the report stating the were (not) being investigated. Sorry, but IMO, these are not astute business people; thank God we have Dr. M and Dr. P; I just hope Management doesn't pull the ultimate blunder later this month when announcing the Interim Results and fk this whole thing up for all of us....that is my biggest fear right now and why I (personally) would like to see an outright buyout soon (even if at a lesser value) and get my money before Management really blows it and we end up with nothing...and trust me, they are very capable of that as they've already demonstrated their "skills" on numerous occasions.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • .....and that appears to be contributing to why we are down today. Some people who bought at under or close to $1 are going to take profits, but will miss the next big run coming up soon.....IMHO............

    Still holding my 6-figure number of shares and praying they do not file Chapter 11, and us ?baggies? end-up with nothing. Presently, my losses (and BIG #$%$ losses they are) are merely losses on paper; to sell now only guarantees my losses as ?real? losses. I am hoping some biotech company may still be interest in buying us at a ?fire sale? price so at least we get something for our shares. I?m sure someone in out there needs office furniture, computers, porno magazines, sex toys, etc?.that the Management Team and BOD?s used while they were jerking each other off during their meetings.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • I think they need to really drill into the results by country and my guess is they will see a “pattern” and specific numbers that may have tainted the bottom line. I just find it hard to believe that Dr. Mittendorf, Dr. Peoples and their research teams have been “wrong” after all these years and previous results. Something is just not adding up here.

    Was the lawsuit settlement finalized yesterday as scheduled? I've seen nothing announced.

    Hi Gene,

    After the court held a hearing on the settlements and the plaintiffs's lawyers request for fees and cost, the court advised it would issue a decision shortly.
