Is this a new trial or the250 patient trial that is still recruiting? To reply to hschlauch - this makes sense as that is what AZN stated when they purchased ZS Pharma - other indications possible other than HK/CKD..
ZS008 current study - updated in early May, 2016
Went from "Observational" to "Interventional" why?
Went from "case-only' to "diagnostic" Why?
Went from "Introspective" to "OPEN LABEL" why?
Me thi9nks ZS005 trial is in "trouble"????
money - You betcha - huge push downward the last 4 hours and RLYP barely FLINCHED! Normally we would have taken a 10% haircut in this situation after scripts but we did not. Something is a brewing. Just ;like the 2.3M shares NET added by Tutes in the 1st Qtr - WHY?
Go to the Clinical Trials website and look for
"Changes to NCT02609841 on 2016_05_06" lots of changes were made IMO
The other short term trial was completed 2 weeks ago.
Why would State Street potentially invest $14-$15M? If they bought averaging $15/shr then they invested over $17M possibly? They surely would not be SHORTING at $15/shr. These TUTEs are looking past the first 4-7 months of scripts to something else (whether it be BO, ZS-9 failure (they do their homework too), label change or even EU approval. As for last night and today - not happy with the market's overreaction but would agree scripts need to be EXPLAINED to the peons!!
(who knows what they are thinking???)

Just filed their 13-F - Still own 7.4M shares. Must be all short shares huh?
I would suggest that most of you who are nervous, disappointed and concerned - sell your shares and get out of the clown show. I probably won't but this board is depressing almost as bad as the BIO downturn these past 8 months. GLTA
I thought they said they were NOT going to report on cumulative but ONLY new scripts back in February. This would then exclude any continuing month over month 30 day script. I am not saying this for sure but this would also say that starter scripts do not get counted again. I don't know how they would begin to count all this cumulatively and have it make sense avoiding misreading by the market.
vs1234 - fishy? Yes - but do we really think Relypsa's management and BOD are driving this company (and all the tutes who invested BIG), down on purpose? I think the numbers are misleading and possibly ONLY represent new patients in April (not any patient in any previous month). Could be wrong but that is the only thng that makes any sense for now. Would have expected better growth though. Could also be that many patients who have taken V have not had their insurance cover yet.
This is what makes no sense. When is approval for ANAC's drug and what is its potential revenue ($2B when)???? Does Pfizer know this will be approved?
"Pfizer's current inflammation and immunology drugs portfolio includes Enbrel and Xeljanz, which target auto-immune diseases.
There have been no new molecules approved for eczema, or atopic dermatitis - a common, relapsing, inflammatory skin disorder that affects about 18-25 million people in the United States - in the last 15 years.
Pfizer believes crisaborole has the potential to reach or exceed peak sales of $2 billion, the company said in a joint statement on Monday.
Anacor also holds the rights to Kerydin, a topical treatment for toenail fungus marketed in the United States by Novartis AG's (NOVN.S) Sandoz unit."
If Orbimed thought the PPS was never going beyond $30 (last December) would they not have sold out
(forget the 500K they sold from their Oct purchase)?
Why did State Street just add 1.14M shares in the 1st Qtr?:
STATE STREET CORP 03/31/2016 2,216,498 1,141,229 (added)
Why did BOFA just pick up 140K in the 1st Qtr:
BANK OF AMERICA CORP /DE/ 03/31/2016 271,911 140,099 (added)
Why did Marshall Wallace just buy in with 448K in 1st Qtr (or are they short?)
MARSHALL WACE LLP 03/31/2016 448,773 448,773 New
Or Portolan Capital just join the mix?
PORTOLAN CAPITAL MANAGEMENT, LLC 03/31/2016 244,593 244,593 New
SABBY MANAGEMENT, LLC 03/31/2016 122,905 122,905 New
Some did sell a significant % of holdings (see Wellington and SUSQUEHANNA)
TWO Head Fakes already with steep declines/reversals and the smallcaps/BIOs are getting whiplash. The bottom is or will be when the IBB/XBI have claimed the bottom. This is sickening and makes NO sense anymore. NASDAQ headed south now.
Agree with BillyRay - do NOT trust this market. Right now, even with good scripts in April, this market will "Paint it Black". Whomever is controlling the "sell side" of BIOs, they are making a mint while retail, IRAs, 401K's, and financial institutions are losing trillions in 2016!
Sensi - the IBB, XBI and NASDAQ tanked after 5 minutes of trading and have severely discounted the BIOs (again). IMO, this has nothing to do with Orwin but agree that this is a BEAR/short world we are stuck in.
Marcus started a position with 65K and Royce added 60K to their position.
Yes, there is some selling (as expected in 1st Qtr) but also some decent buying (Emerald, Blackrock and Diam).
I have a few BIOs other than RLYP and pretty much the same "discount" is being applied today as well as the 50% off since last December. New rules by the MM's and banks?
Almost every day or other day, the IBB and XBI take major hits which reverse any gains made in a previous session. TODAY shows that and of course all these BIOs are now bad investments and the company is garbage as is the CEO(s).
