    I'm pretty sure that BCEL only held PLX shares in 2014. BCEL still trades on the TASE and has a market cap of $891,423 USD. So, I would assume that they still hold shares. I've been waiting for BCEL to sell all of their shares.

    Do you know the status of BCEL's stake in PLX? Does it still have shares?

    Between April 18, 2012, and Dec 14, 2012, 109 participants were randomly assigned to PBT2 250 mg (n=36), PBT2 100 mg (n=38), or placebo (n=35) at 19 research centres in Australia and the USA. 32 (89%) individuals on PBT2 250 mg, 38 (100%) on PBT2 100 mg, and 34 (97%) on placebo completed the study. Six serious adverse events (acute coronary syndrome, major depression, pneumonia, suicide attempt, viral infection, and worsening of Huntington's disease) occurred in five participants in the PBT2 250 mg group, three (fall with subdural haematoma, suicide attempt, and hospital admission for stabilisation of Huntington's disease) occurred in two participants in the PBT2 100 mg group, and one (increasing aggression) occurred in a participant in the placebo group. The site investigators deemed all, except the worsening of Huntington's disease, as unrelated to study drug. 32 (89%) participants on PBT2 250 mg, 30 (79%) on PBT2 100 mg, and 28 (80%) on placebo had at least one adverse event. Compared with placebo, neither PBT2 100 mg (least-squares mean 0·02, 95% CI −0·10 to 0·14; p=0·772) nor PBT2 250 mg (0·07, −0·05 to 0·20; p=0·240) significantly improved the main composite cognition Z score between baseline and 26 weeks. Compared with placebo, the Trail Making Test Part B score was improved between baseline and 26 weeks in the PBT2 250 mg group (17·65 s, 0·65—34·65; p=0·042) but not in the 100 mg group (0·79 s improvement, −15·75 to 17·32; p=0·925); neither dose significantly improved cognition on the other tests.
