I lost a good friend to diabetes, went to his funeral, saw the grief, etc. it is irritating to think people would attempt to derail afrezza. I am sure if you wee born with the disease and had to inject yourself thousands of times and had to "put up with" pain, scarring, infections and chronic anxiety you would feel differently.
The Muslim world is inbred and hopeless. Due to the Islamic religion, much of the world is in the grip of superstitious determinism, a formula for mal-development and retrograde political systems. What we are seeing is proof of the power of the primitive layers of the brain.
I read an article by Oliver Sacks MD about a visit to a Polynesian clinic where he noted the sweet smell of piles of amputated limbs. The third world is reeling from the collision of their genetics and the modern diet.
I had a close friend who died in his late thirties from "LO", leaving behind a young daughter. I saved him from falling into coma three times. Diabetes ruined his life. I know he was depressed from the pain and ugliness of constant injections over the course of his life ( he was type one ). This medication is desperately needed.
Is there a possibility the governments involved might exert downward pressure on the price charged as a requirement for further facilitation? It seems to me the governments did NWBO quite a favor and might want to be honored with humanitarian pricing.
The UK and German governments certainly see enterprises such as NWBO adding to national prestige when they succeed. I don't know why the USA is so retrograde on this. Maybe there is something going on behind the curtain.
Science is on the side of MNKD. Technosphere will prove itself as a life-saving technology, and will be of tremendous importance in pain management, allergy emergencies, cardiac emergencies and in reversal of opioid overdose. In fact in any medical situation where immediate effect counts the most, I think TS will be used.
It's medicine in the US. We can build supercomputers but can't fund spirometers. When you look at them they resemble a toy, really.
Easy for anyone who has raised rabbits however.
The company has enough cash for the next five years. Dilution is not likely. The product is effectively the best for treatment of cancers which are widely and rightfully feared. Your take?
And the governments of Germany and the UK, both of whom back this company, also have no scientists?
Call back in a year of two. I expect to live that long,do you? Or are you one of those poor guys we read about in the back pages who manage to asphyxiate themselves in search of a #$%$?
The RSI indicates its oversold. In the absence of further evidence it usually is good metric to follow.
You mean you are not planning to buy back your position because the stock will go to zero?
I have posted before with this, but I thought we who invest here should know, as I do from personal experience, how bad life can get for T1 people. A good friend lost his life due to the disease; he fell asleep and never woke up. Left behind his only daughter. He went to live alone, even though he knew he was at risk for hypoglycemic coma, because he wanted his own place, to have her over for a weekend when his divorce stipulations allowed. Previously, he had rented a small room from me for five years. During that time I rescued him three times from going comatose. I kept a close eye on him. The constant injections had wore him out; he had scar tissue all around his stomach. He was the son of a prominent psychologist. He was bright, but diabetes darkened his childhood, and ruined his adulthood. He eventually became an alcoholic. What a life.
If I am not mistaken the discoverer of dendritic cells was awarded the Nobel prize. Sooner or later we will see new applications.
Investors at his level have expertise most of us can only dream about.

Off topic but when I saw the ad for the Honda Odyssey featuring Jackie Evancho singing Handel's "Ombra Mai #$%$" - viewable at Jackie Junkies blog - I thought " Now that is an ad that works". Wish something with that class would be utilized by MNKD.

Yeah I get it. It is just that the two videos side by side is funny and a great comic break. Believe me I lost a good friend to diabetes who never would have died had he had Afrezza. I think he would have laughed at the ad. His life stunk because of he disease but he had a good sense of humor.
If you want a good laugh look at Ken Kam's piece on Afrezza at Forbes. There are two you tubes showing Afrezza and the pen. The sincere woman who demonstrated the fifty ways you can make a mistake taking your insulin versus the guy who takes his at a basketball game no sweat is classic comedy.
