Look I am man enough to admit I was wrong.
Gilead is a great company.
I just thought they would their VERY SIGNIFICANT patent issues with IDIX before Sofu launch..
Now we have a jury court pattle and a USPTO battle.
I keep on digging into this story and there is a real story here. The IDIX '600 patent is senior. Also the entire VRUS/GILD purchase is very suspicious and smells....
The real hero here ( Schinazi- the real discoverer ) wears too many hats (GILD, VRUS, Emory ) at once. It is hard to dissect all this stuff out, but I am still dissecting.
This is a Wall Street type Movie ...but if you want to keep blinders on, fine...
Quite the twist of fate.
I hope MRK buys out IDIX
I am not picky !
Today's " action " makes me think some announcement may be coming.
Have a great weekend all !
As opposed to you screen watchers, I actulally have a real job, a real profession and I do good in this world.
Now back to screen gazing, waissland.
I'm sure you contribute much to this world, LMAO
Still saving lives.
Just took out a humungous polyp.
Now all kidding aside., everyone get screening colonosocpies !
But in reviewing the situation, Gilead's market cap going up is great for me.
Just swap my IDIX stock for Gilead stock.
Seth Klarman is rumored to be the " heir " to Warren Buffett.
He's got green flags out for IDIX.
Soon we gonna see checkered flags.
I guess they aren't too worried about jury trials and USPTO.....
This is quite a " soap opera "
Oh well, back to my day job.
Idenix announces declaration of senior party in second USPTO patent interference
Idenix Pharmaceuticals (IDIX) announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office declared a patent interference between Idenix's U.S. Patent 7,608,600 and Gilead Sciences' (GILD) U.S. Patent Application 11/854,218, both related to the use of certain 2'-methyl, 2'-fluoro nucleoside compounds to treat hepatitis C virus infections. A patent interference is an administrative proceeding conducted by the USPTO in order to determine which party is entitled to a patent when two or more parties claim patent rights to the same technology. The applicant who filed the earlier patent application is referred to as the senior party in the patent interference and the applicant with the later filing date is referred to as the junior party. The junior party bears the burden of proof to demonstrate that it invented the technology in question before the senior party. In this case, the USPTO has initially determined that Idenix is the senior party and that Gilead is the junior party.
I don't think so, superfly.
Pretty obvious with OE that they will kill the calls.
No big deal, next week is another week, and brings us closer to Jan 7 patent hearing.
No, but I still have no answer from you guys as to why the USPTO made IDIX senior.
No intellectual honesty here. I am willing to admit that I am wrong. I thought there would be a settlement by now, before launch, and obviously I am wrong.
But you guys have no answer as to the patent issue. And I believe that you two posters ( NJ superfly and wasteland ) are imposters as to knowledge of the science here.
A true scientist digs deep and searches for the truth.
Oh, I am he first to admit when I am wrong.
I will fade away once the IDIX/GILD relationship is truly unraveled.
You guys think this is a non story and it will just go away.
That's why we have US Patent Laws.
Hey IDIX is senior. Senior wins 75% of the time.
Let's go to court !
