    "The positive results from IGNITE 1 underscore that treatment with eravacycline could help a significant number of cIAI patients achieve a clinical cure for their difficult-to-treat Gram-negative infections," said Guy Macdonald, President and CEO of Tetraphase. "The success of this trial is an important milestone for the eravacycline pivotal program. These results, along with those from our ongoing Phase 3 IGNITE 2 trial in complicated urinary tract infections (cUTI) which are expected in mid-2015, would form the basis of regulatory submissions seeking approval for eravacycline in both indications. We continue to target a New Drug Application submission to the FDA by the end of 2015."

    Tetraphase plans to submit the data from the Phase 3 IGNITE 1 clinical trial for presentation at a scientific meeting in 2015.

    Patience is what is need now. The company said that they were " exploring a sale", which means that they may or may not find a deal agreeable in the near future. Actelion and Roche were mentioned as possibly being interested, not definitely interested. TTPH has retained advisors for this and I myself believe they will make a deal with someone, but only if the price is right. The pps will probably bump along until mid year unless there is an announcement of a sale before then. Patience!

    Hey Die,
    You do realize that name calling is the first sign of low intelligence, right? Why don't you emulate your name...today!

    No, REALLY, don't bother. If you are out then go away until you buy back in. Go post on the Kite board. Thanks Dad.

    8-3..this is not a slam dunk....

    Die... picking a color in Vegas on a roulette wheel is a 50% chance of success. I am "betting" that RMTI gets approval and with the results from the trials and the 8-3 ADCOM vote, I believe the odds are much better than a 50/50 bet. Are the odds 100%, no, but there is much more chance of approval than not. ALL INVESTING IS A GAMBLE, success is about managing risk. Perhaps you might want to take the lead from your name, and well, just plain ....!

    Hey tough,
    Interesting post. I think that most people who have been investing for some time have had the same thoughts about when is it prudent to take profit as opposed to maximize the return. We might well wake up one morning to drop of $5-$10, especially if a buyer can't be found for TTPH and the market hits a rocky patch. Your wife is right, of course, no one ever went hungry taking profit. A week before last I converted a variable annuity to a money market fund. I had a good return for the year and the market was getting rocky due to oil and the ruble,(the annuity was down 5% from it's high) and I wanted to lock in my profit The very next day the market turned around. The funny thing is, I have lamented the money I left on the table from converting the annuity, even though I have made much more over the past week and a half from the stocks I hold. Human nature, go figure. They say not to get emotionally involved when you are investing, which is probably easier said than done. I used to spend a fair amount of time in the Orient. Most purchases are done through negotiation. You would always hear of someone who bought what you did for less money, and those who spent more money than you did. I learned to be happy with what I paid, knowing that I was never going to pay the lowest, but I was also never going to be the one paying the most. I think the same philosophy carries over to investing. Someone always pays less for the stock than I do, and someone always pays more than I do, and someone will always make more profit per share than I will and someone will always make less profit per share than I will. So, when you make a decision to sell, be happy that that was the right decision at the time.

    "Lobsta" anyone?

    I heard an analyst on the way home tonight saying there was an 80% chance of an up week from now to next Wed, so going with his theory, I'm guessing it will end the year between $41 and $42. As for the Pat's, this is my 29th year as a season ticket holder. I will be at the home games, and hopefully, if they make the SB, I can get to AZ for the BIG game. If you are back east visiting family the weekend of 1/10-11 let me know via PM on IV. I have an extra pair of tickets for the AFC Divisional round. Go TTPH!!!

    LOSER IGNORE!!!!

    I hear you brother. I have a variable annuity that was invested in stocks and on Tuesday of this week I converted it to a money market account, taking everything off the table, and missing the last two days of gains in the market. Nobody wins all the time and hopefully nobody loses all the time. All we can hope for is that we make more right calls than wrong ones.

    Up 2.4 % after hours...

    mountainsfrommolehills mountainsfrommolehills Dec 9, 2014 8:47 PM Flag

    Actually the trade at 5:11 pm east coast time was for 100 shares @ $8.55. The other 6200 shares were sold/bought at $8.35 between 4:33 pm and 4:57 pm. I am afraid this is not the good news we are all awaiting, that the shorts are closing out their positions. I can't see any catalyst to lift the price until January 24th. Even if we get approval, which I think is likely, there is a fair chance that the shorts will attempt to beat down the share price gain by saying that there is no demonstrated need for the product. All B%**S^#@ of course, but they have been very effective in taking away any price appreciation from Adcom and Baxter deal. Before this short attack (if you notice, their battle cry is "We attack at dawn" when they begin their shenanigans) I would have thought that this stock would be at $15-$20 pre FDA approval, and shortly up to $30 by end of January to middle of February. Now, I am not so sure, It may be a struggle to hold onto gains as we have seen over the past couple of months. If that is the case, then the company will have to make us happy the old fashioned way, increase distribution, sales, and post a profit, all things I have confidence RMTI will do.

    8k filing bull-ish

    Thanks for the insight. The Nasdaq after hours board had RMTI down .48 cents on less than 20K shares traded, with the largest being just over 1,500 shares. I anticipate the" height challenged" will make a run this AM, trying to get it down as low as possible. There have been no pre market activity yet today.

    http://www.deepcapture.com/michael-milken-60000-deaths-and-the-story-of-dendreon-chapter-1-of-15/ is the link to the 15 chapter article written about DNDN, Cramer, Michael Milken, the SEC, the FDA, the Mafia et al

  • mountainsfrommolehills by mountainsfrommolehills Nov 16, 2014 9:17 AM Flag

    Someone had recently posted a link to a 15 part article about Michael Milken and his "charitable" foundation, and how the organized hedge funds shorted and naked shorted DNDN and manipulated the stock. I read about half of the 15 chapters, but my battery went to 0 and I did not bookmark the site. I have gone through the post, but can not seem to locate the link again. Whoever posted it, can you please post it again. If anyone did not read this article, I suggest you do so, to understand the ability and ruthlessness these organized shorts employ to take down good companies. I have only been in RMTI for a few months and I believe it is a very good investment opportunity, given an even playing field. Thanks for any help.
