    Osiris Flatline, Inc. because since 2007 the stock price has almost exactly flatlined. Been a great run for shareholders over the last 7 years. I see why so many of you are so ticked off.

    SW should be ST forum

  • will put link on SW forum but here is the section
    TLSR: What are some of your favorite medical device companies?

    WP: In the wound care space, my favorite company is MiMedx Group Inc. (MDXG:OTCBB), which is providing better, faster and cheaper technology compared to current therapies.

    TLSR: Let's switch to wound healing. Tell me about MiMedx's amniotic membrane-based technology.

    WP: Regarding advanced wound care, a patient will present with a diabetic foot ulcer or venous leg ulcer. These are different than standard wounds, with blood flow to the extremities being an issue. The continuum of care begins with a standard bandage. If that doesn't work, the next step is a more advanced bandage: silver coated or honey coated. If those don't work, more advanced technologies are required and can include negative pressure wound therapy, hyperbaric oxygen chambers, and advanced wound-covering technologies. MiMedx is focused on advanced wound-covering/regeneration technologies in the skin substitute market.

    MiMedx uses amniotic tissue derived from live birth placenta. Published clinical data demonstrated a 92% wound-healing rate in diabetic foot ulcers. Patients typically require two or three grafts, with a total cost per patient of $2-3K.

    Since commercializing its products over the last several years, MiMedx has grown significantly and has taken a significant portion of market share. The products work well, reimbursement is in place and distribution continues to ramp to properly address the U.S. market.

    1/4 inch? What is that you wee wee size? You obviously know nothing about EpiFix to make that statement. MDXG like every other public company in the space that has an advisory board,compensates members with options. Much more prudent method than using precious cash. You talk like the company is giving stock to the doctors and hospitals who are BUYING Epifix. Nonsense. Have "some business"? You mean volume that dwarfs Grafix? As for Petit not answering any more questions, you mean from that smelly dimwitted analyst who wanted to know confidential information as far as what MDXG's compensation is? Maybe he should also tell Streetsweeper's analyst partner what the sales people et in terms of healthcare coverage, vacation days and lunch breaks too?

    Give it up Ozark. Thousands upon thousands of uses of EpiFIx with stellar results, including government hospitals and doctors, who not only continue ordering EpiFix because of its success rate but continue to order it in bigger quantity because it works so well and it is cost effective. You can babble all you want about the studies, it's all a bunch of hot air. The best study possible is the real world where way more docs and hospitals are using EpiFix than Grafix and for good reason. You really think they are using it and continue to use if if it doesn't work and doesn't work at the success level level that MDXG's studies have shown" If docs ate told a product reduces DFY by x% in x days and they buy it and the product doesn't work as represented, do you think they will continue to use it? You are clueless how docs and hospitals work. I could care less who was on the panel. The only thing that matters is that EpiFix results are stellar and that is PROVEN bu the exploding sales.

    The Art and Science of High Definition Ultrasound in Joint and Soft Tissue Rejuvenation
    Posted on August 17, 2014 by admin
    By Suzi Harkola
    The pain of arthritis or injury in joints and soft tissues can be debilitating and excruciating. For years, the only option was highly invasive surgery, with extended periods of rehabilitation and limited mobility. Patients undergoing this type of treatment often feel depressed, isolated, compromised and – all too often – still in pain.

    Alternatives to surgery are coming into their own. While not for every situation, non-surgical techniques can often rejuvenate bone and repair soft tissue damage.

    A Sarasota medical facility, Gecko Joint & Spine, is one of the leading providers of rejuvenation therapy, and has been for well over a decade. Using injections of Prolozone, stem cells and platelet rich plasma, Gecko’s medical team has perfected the art and science of joint repair without surgery. The clinic has become a mecca for people from around the world to experience pain relief through injection therapy.

    One key to Gecko’s success, according to John Lieurance, D.C., is the use of high definition ultrasound (US) to pinpoint, literally, the exact site for the injections. “We specialize in preparation for the injections,” he explained, “and the high def US shows us exactly what’s wrong so we can isolate the injection location. Ultrasound is actually better than an MRI or X-ray to identify damage to tendons, ligaments and soft tissue, and to visualize abnormal fluid. It’s immediate, and gives us a hands-on analysis of the musculoskeletal system. Most importantly, it ensures accurate, efficient and often less painful procedures because of the accuracy it provides for the injection.”

    opinion is worthless.

    volstate, that about sums up the plaintiffs case. Ambulance chaser law firms know that generally, companies will settle to avoid protracted litigation. Of course, Petit is not your average guy and doesn't like being jacked around, including by ambulance chasers. Firms like this are a black mark on my profession in my opinion. I would love to see legislation enacted that would lay SERIOUS fines on law firms that bring bogus lawsuits. That would kelp unclog the courts.

    LOL. This is an old suit and nothing will come of it as I just explained on the MDXG board. FWIW, same thing with OSIR's suit. These are ambulance chasers looking for a payoff to go away.

    It's not hypothetical profits they have to prove. They have to prove losses, in other words they bought the stock at 7, the news came out cratering the stock and they sold at a loss. All the court held in the summary judgement motion is that there is a question of fact and cant get a SJ unless there are no facts in dispute and as a matter of law you are right. Court held that just because a stock fully recovers does not preclude a cause of action, which is correct. I do not believe there is a case here though. MDXG had been advised by legal counsel that Amniofix injectable qualified under 360 and did not need a license and the FDA knew the company had been selling it for years, even inspected the plant pretty much "blessed" MDXG's view of 360 and government doctors were using the injectable. Then, suddenly and mysteriously, FDA changes its view of 360 and that somehow means MDXG made fraudulent statements about it qualifying under 360? I don't think so.

    OSIR

    The Rosen firm, in my opinion, represents the dark side of my profession. I wish the practices engaged in my law firms like this one were banned. According to the "world view" of firms like this, if a public company misses a quarter, it is grounds for a lawsuit for making fraudulent claims. Absurd.

    I see the Rosen firm just put out a PR that it is investigating OSIR. On OSIR Yahoo news

    transition letter

    homebuilder_watcher homebuilder_watcher Aug 13, 2014 3:53 PM Flag

    how bout, this is NOT a common situation, not a case where a non approved drug is going to file for a BLA and asks for a transition letter to sell it while it files a BLA .It is a drug that the company justififiably has been selling for years based on 360,which the FDA was well aware of, and then out of the blue and inexplicably changes its mind and wants a BLA, a drug that has been injected tens of thousands of times with no adverse results and proven effectiveness, including injected thousands of times by US GOVERNMENT doctors. So this fact patters does not lend itself to an attempt to find precedent.
