    If approval happens, and Medtronic is interested,

    Excuse me Mr. Buffett but the fight will begin when the price is a lot higher. If FIDO and Orbimed get their nose under the tent it will take more than a few shares held by management to make a case.

    questions regarding approval

    by steelhead111222 18 hours ago
    innsbrooklad innsbrooklad 17 hours ago Flag

    Existing technologies? There is none like VBLOC. It is a first of its kind and the FDA had difficulty. Pills have to beat placebo by 5% but the FDA and the company put up a 10% super superiority. Neither had any clue that the sham would be so extraordinary over 12 months. Lerner addressed this is a letter of December 12, 2013. Oral medication?? You must be kidding. All three had weight loss maximums over a year of 6% EWL if I understand their data. You can see that docs are not writing scrips as the Phen Fen scars are still there and it will take years before all the drug interactions are examined. Read the 287 page transcript and you will see the efficacy vote was 9-0 at 18 months but the 4-5 vote only looked at the 12 month data and the biostatisticians on the ADCOM had to vote against.

    FYI different than oral medications? Just look at the weight loss data.

    Why are you and so many others intent on selling the company? The insiders do not own enough stock to even try to sell the company and if given to a proxy fight I do not think they can win. Ever think of giving the company a chance to operate? They get approval they can license the VBLOC for a huge number. It is the other stuff that I think more valuable than VBLOV. Am I the only one that can see past a low ball buyout???

    Moi?? A pumper??? I only try to give relevant facts and ADE is an idiot. Have you by any chance read the 287 page transcript? And the FDA does not need to be convinced about fat people. I know some of them and they are enormous. If approval is denied it will trade down as the free riders bail. But there is a lot to this company that has value. I read all their patents and applications and they do have approval in Europe and Asia. My bet is they find a partner at worst and sell the company for $250 Million in a year or two. But they are not going to get turned down. And I know the FDA will want them to go down to 30 BMI as those are the folks who will be 35-45 in a few years. Expensive but a pretty stable prevention device. Best of all you don't have to change what you eat, only the amount.

    I own quite a bit of stock and upon approval will buy more. I average up not down.

    SGU...I give the FDA a little space as this is a first of a kind device which is also a therapeutic. They will establish new ground here for the space I call "electroceuticals." The data is there and the epidemic of obesity is everywhere. Kelvin...Spain is poor relative to the UAE so I think they live on less and most likely eat healthier. I saw a lot of slim folks in Paris but they ballooned in London. I hear from pals in Asia that they have an obesity epidemic.

    Google obesity and you will see an article about obesity in the UAE. How quickly do you think that nation would allow VBLOC in he front door. I get a minimum of 10 obesity hits a week on my Google Alert for obesity.
    And the dopes at the FDA still can't figure it out.

    Post FDA approval

    The pharma companies are not doing anything to VBLOC as to the FDA. If they did it would have been ARNA VVUS and OREX. Most big pharma has nothing in the obesity pipeline. Once something gets traction they will buy it. I think this delay is staffing and maybe Dr. Lerner wants to sees some later data. Upon approval I think they will ask for a BMI of 30 as the point to start the device. We will hear soon one way or the other. I still can't believe the stock trades where it does. Downside at worst is zero and the up side at best is $20. You have to love those odds.

    Well stated and I would like to know from a long time holder why a lot of folks here and you tend to overlook the science and just concentrate on VBLOC and a deal? There have been a great deal of literature on the new field of electroceuticals that I think bailing early on this company takes away a spectacular future. We know VBLOC works albeit with the assessment that the FDA not ETRM really understood how the human mind would work with the sham implant. It is the entire case for approval in my estimation as 18,24, and 36 month data shows the real picture. But wouldn't you like to see our technology go further as an independent entity?
    We can partner and license with anyone but our patent estate is the best in this area and if they could do a major deal with GSK or someone like them I think our value would explode. Comments??

    Warren...you are clueless...the prep and recovery take most of the time..In speaking to the company last year and reading the transcript the actual surgery is about 15 minutes. It is outpatient.The ASE profile was small.
