    the correction I intended is market cap of bio. Also, Board of Directors of CYTR includes former chairman of Sandoz, a Nobel prize winner in med., and a co-founder of Amgen.

  • I have 40 years experience in the field, and also do biotech investing as an avocation. I bought in after the release of the of the ph 2b data when the price immediately popped 6.. While I certainly do not condone some of what happened with the company's PR , it does seem to me that CYTR was under attack by AF and many on this Board in late 2013; there has been much written on this Board that AF works for the shorts. I had an email exchange with David Hearn of CYTR on 12/16 asking him about the criticisms, I liked his response, and have continued buying. The long term price of the stock will be determined by the science. The mechanism of action of Aldox is very appealing and the available data on the drug so far is very supportive. The drug has orphan drug status, and the ph3 study is being conducted under a SPA, which is very favorable. Furthermore, the FDA is allowing unlimited use of Aldox until cancer progression; this is a huge plus since the major toxicity of anthracyline chemotherapy is dose related cardiotoxicity. . I took advantage of the recent sell off( short attack-Mr. Pearson was short when he released the SA article) to buy more CYTR. Aldox has the potential to be a blockbuster and you can buy the company when it has a market cap of 1bil with a drug only in ph1.

  • New FDA concerns about neurocognitive side effects of PCSK inhibitors make our product a lot more appealing

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • just off of flyonthewall

  • SGMO up 20% this morning based on success of genomic program in HIV. SGPG has exclusive partnership to utilize SGMO's gene Rx in hemophilia, etc. Looking like a wise partnership move by Shire

    Sentiment: Buy

  • stands at 10.9 according to Yahoo, down from 13..5. That is 10.9 days of average daily volume to cover. Do the shorts really want to take a chance that the BPH and cancer studies will have positive results? I doubt it. The pop with positive results will be huge. I see short covering as a positive going forward.

    I forgot to mention the potential short squeeze with 13.5 days average volume sold short

  • Although there is skepticism toward the company management, particularly its secretive approach to providing information, indicates a conclusion date for both phase 3 trials as April 2014. So it is likely we will have the verdict in 2Q2014.

    A Google search indicates that many urologists involved in the trials( who are not paid consultants for the company) have publicly praised the ease of use and efficacy of NX-1207. The drug only has to do significantly better then the saline placebo in the phase3 studies, which seems highly likely. The independent safety review board has already cleared the drug. Hence, I see a high likelihood of FDA approval. Urology colleagues tell me there is a strong need for a simple, office based procedure for BPH, which afflicts 40% of men over 50. The procedure will almost certainly be a money maker for urologists, and there is a huge reservoir of symptomatic men who are afraid of surgery but would be eager for a simple office procedure, so a rapid ramp-up is very likely. Add on the possibility of an effective Rx for low grade prostate cancer, and I think you have a compelling risk reward scenario.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • The phase 2 studies on nx-1207 are favorable, and the comments of several urologists are also quite favorable. The drug is being compared to a placebo, which sets a low bar. I remain optimistic that the drug will prove quite superior to the placebo injection. The safety studies have also uniformly been favorable. I am optimistic for an easy FDA approval

    Sentiment: Buy
