They were never signed up, though Frank implied verbally they were onboard. Turns out per new NVIV management that there is too much of a conflict of interest because the principal investigators and surgeons are the same which did the pre-clinical work and they are shareholders and stakeholders in the company.
There is no Frank Reynolds conspiracy theory. It is clear he is selling his free shares. These surgeons may know how to perform the procedure, but can't sell rice to a starving Asian.
Safety will be established and will open up the door to scaffold + options. It will make all the difference. Some efficacy would be a bonus, but I don't really care at this point.
I'm guessing that skilled surgeons and doctors are lousy salespersons. They simply do not know how to communicate the risk/benefit properly to the injured prospective clients in order to secure a participant.
For me it is quite clear:
You have the kind of SCI that falls within the criteria guidelines and you know how dismal your prognosis is:
You will never walk again. You will be paralyzed for life from point of injury down. There is no effective treatment currently on the market. Depending upon your mental state you will deal with the cold reality with as much cheerful outlook as you can muster, or you will wish you were dead.
Here we have an experimental treatment that has shown significant promise in non-human primates. Although their model injury differs to an extent from the injury that you have sustained, the NSS material has unequivocally been shown to foster regrowth of spare tissue in the spinal cord. It has been shown to be completely safe in all of the studies conducted. Confirmation of this in humans means the following: Chances are you would be no worse off by having the material implanted into your lesion. If there are no adverse reactions, as reasonably expected, it would be confirmation of safety and a good indication that this is a viable platform for even better combined treatments in the future. You may actually experience a degree of efficacy as well, meaning some, even slight restoration of sensation or motor transmission below the site of injury. With proper OT, your body may even extend this level of positive neural remodeling.
Choice A: 100% permanent disablement. Choice B: A chance to see some improvement, but even if none is seen you will have moved the scaffold forward in terms of safety and we may be able to help your chronic state in another 5 - 7 years or less.
The nosedive is thanks to the lowlife who used to be CEO selling his large number of free shares. He probably doesn't think that he has much of a lifespan left. All natural causes, though at times I wish we had some goombas that bought in above $3 and have the #$%$ in their crosshairs.
He will NEVER be successful with Pixar. No investor will go near him, I'm sure. I wonder if he has some personal dirt on Langer, because Dr. L seems way too good for associating with the likes of FR.
Why does the jerk need to file if he is below the reporting threshold on ownership? Is he under different rules that require quarterly filing now?
Depends upon the rate he is selling. But nobody knows what that is anymore.
The man is selfish beyond imagination. It's very easy to sell shares that were obtained at $0 or mere pennies.
But here is a man who went all over the country drumming up retail investors on all sorts of special interest news shows, appeared on TV and in public with SCI victims, etc, and now he is stabbing everyone in the back. The investment community doesn't trust him. How can he with any level of sanity expect to have any investment interest now or after a reverse merger, for his Pixar? He has shown everybody his ugly nature. He is krapping in his original nest as we speak. Is he mentally ill or is he the real king of misanthropes around here?
Hi Alex, that may be true, but if the roadshow occurs without 1st patient, at least it gets the investors primed and theere should be a nice pop when that patient does come.
