    I get what you are saying.....but it's one thing to pull the wool over the eyes of the run of the mill investors, like myself.....but entirely another thing to pull the wool over the eyes of people at Roche and Ipsen. Oh, well.....time will tell. We're another day closer to 2018

    Hmmm, you just brought up something that I have wondered about for a while. As part of the settlement, Genentech (now Roche) and Tercica (now Ipsen) had the right to opt-in for certain indications of iPlex......I admit things are a little dusty in my thinking. But, anyway, the three (Insmed/Genentech/Tercica) would also have periodic meetings to discuss items of interest with regards to this. My question is this......are Insmed/Roche/Ipsen still doing this?

    I think we are one day closer to 2018 and a clearer picture with regards to iPlex. First, Arikayce....unless you still think all of Insmed is going to be bought. Then, I guess I would like to know what her views on the whole of Insmed would be for Arikayce, iPlex, igfbp3, INSM-18, INS-1009, etc

    Yep.....thanks for this, League. You know, as much as Terry is not appreciated here, perhaps we owe him a little bit of thanks for helping us bring to light what else Insmed is all about. A few more years and the lid is off the simmering pot.

    So, while we wait for the progression of Arikayce, iPlex is next.....then followed perhaps by igfbp3 and INSM-18, and more? I might not be here for the last two as I think my target price will be met before then.


  • Insmed IPLEX vs. Tercica INCRELEX product labels

    Found this post from some wanderings into posts of 2006. Posted by someone else on another board.


    the best marketing campaign that the sales force at insmed can do is mail out these two pages from the respective labels of the product and let the doctors and parents figure out from themselves which product they should use.

    Insmed's side effects were asymtomatic to mild whereas Tecica's product side effects were mild to moderate. The only reason it didn't get any asymtomatic side effects is that it was a compassionate use study so they didn't check for them. They would have had 100 percent hypoglycemia if they did.

    from the Increlex label page 11

    Hypoglycemia was reported by 30 subjects (42%) at least once during their course of therapy. Most cases of hypoglycemia were mild or moderate in severity. Five subjects had severe hypoglycemia (requiring assistance and treatment) on one or more occasion and 4 subjects experienced hypoglycemic seizures/loss of consciousness on one or more occasion.

    from the IPLEX label page 10

    Hypoglycemia was reported in 11/36 (31%) patients in the study generally rated as mild and asymptomatic.
