    How about some results?

    Now Canada. Clearly the company has been working hard to get adult and pediatric approvals. The plant-based technology clearly works if FDA and other countries all approve. Pipeline is so interesting but moving slowly. I believe other pharma companies could be interested in licensing the technology if not outright buying the company. Seems like management is holding on trying to hit a home run. They have great exit packages so it is in their best interest to make the right decisions. As of yesterday's close, market cap only 356 million. Tough to sell at this point.

    I thought that's what Pfizer is supposed to be doing. Why else did the get 60% of non-Israeli profit? Maybe it will work out better when oral formulation comes and Pfizer has no involvement. I wouldn't be surprised if Pfizer is doing very little to increase sales since they see the oral formulation replacing them anyway.

    Zeev Bronfeld was the interim Chairman of the Board for the past 4 years. That position was given to Shlomo Yanai this past July. Bronfeld remains a member of the board.
    Bronfeld is also the head of Biocell which just sold 4.4 million shares of PLX at 2.47. Biocell still holds over 10 million shares of PLX.
    Why would Biocell sell 4.4 million shares at that price? Maybe raising cash to fund another deal? Shouldn't be based on information about the upcoming trial results because I would think that is considered trading on inside information.
    I watch the trades in this stock closely. I obviously never saw a 4.4 million share block. I never even saw 4.4 million shares trade at 2.47 even in small increments. Was this stock directed to some other entity or simply traded retail? Something is going on and the average shareholder is in the dark. There has been no news released which would explain the recent drop in price into the 2s.
    Aviezer is leaving too.
    New blood with Yanai and a new CEO may be a good thing. They couldn't possibly do a worse job for shareholders!
    Also saw that Yanai is accepting stock options at 3.47 (I think) as part of his compensation. That implies some degree of optimism.
    Lets hope for some good trial results for oral Elelyso which could be a game changer, and for the Fabry biobetter. Other pipeline drugs could move faster too. Maybe Yanai's tie to Teva can help..
    New and hopefully aggressive management seems very favorable to me.
