Evidently, the FDA has a very weak Neurology Team incapable of understanding new technologies such as Metal Protein Attenuation Compounds (MPAC)!! The FDA needs to bring in new Neurologists and strengthen the team!! I hope Ms. Woodcock is attending to this. The patients are suffering!!
What makes you think that Copper is not a prisoner with a lot of time on her/his hands and thus finds this bashing an easy (if not the only) way to make some change while in prison?
I believe this class of drugs is toxic to dogs specifically. Check my post on InvestorsVillage on the PRAN message board post number 843.
Given that there has been a substantial amount of testing with mice and in humans, I don't see how the testing in a few dogs is all that relevant. My first question is: How many dogs were tested? Is the answer 10 dogs, 20 dogs, 30 dogs? It is highly unlikely that more dogs have been tested than humans. Also note that there are things that are toxic to dogs and not at all toxic to humans. One example of a toxic substance to dogs is chocolate. Chocolate is extremely toxic to dogs (Kills dogs) but billions of humans have eaten chocolate without any bad effects. Given that the toxicity in dogs showed up in a very small trial (few dogs in trial), I would think that the most likely explanation is that there is a distinct difference in the reaction to the drug between dogs and humans. (Note that the dietary requirements of dogs is SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT from that of humans. The dietary requirements of mice is much closer to that of humans.) Note that no such toxicity was ever seen in mice (or rats) where many more mice experiments were done and the much higher numbers carry much more relevance. At best, the FDA is using the PCH as a "cover your #$%$ tactic and at worst it is using the PCH as a delay tactic to allow other drug companies to narrow the lead Prana has over the competition in order to allow more drugs to get through trials and hit the market. After all, what patient would want to go through a drug trial if a good drug already exists on the market? This is IMHO.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Let's keep the posts with relevant information from getting buried by the maggots' effort to engage the good posters and flood this board with lies and drivel. Please don't feed the maggots with their multiple IDs.
PRAN's Pbt2 is the only drug that reduces A-Beta deposits and prevents Tau Tangles from forming. It will be a Godsend to patients suffering from neuro-degenerative diseases. It is a shame that the FDA has delayed the start of the phase 3 trial by over a year with this bogus PCH based on old Dog studies which used very high doses when we have up to two years worth of data in Human studies. However, based on PRAN's AGM and the recent half yearly report, I am assuming we are close and the the package that is being prepared for the FDA will soon be handed to them. A little more patience is required IMHO.
You hit a nerve with the bashers. They used their multiple IDs or hacking capability to flood your post with thumbs down.
This is good evidence that the bashers are working 24/7 to keep PRAN out of the hands of small retail holders and keep the price from breaking out. It also verifies their Immoral activities which hurt small biotechs by keeping them from getting reasonable funding and thus delaying the development of life-saving drugs. The best way to deal with these immoral maggots is to put them on ignore and NEVER respond to their posts directly. Not responding to their posts clears the board so the good posts are revealed and not hidden by the multitude of garbage with which the maggots fill our message board.
It's not a matter of faith. It is a matter of probabilities. Based on the research that has been done by the leading scientific community in Alzheimers and Huntingtons, the probabilities appear to be quite high that PRAN has the right approach and their drug Pbt2 works. I am investing based on what the scientific research has revealed and my assessment is that Pbt2 does work and will be approved by the regulatory agencies. You should do your own research and come to your conclusion independently. IMHO, there is a huge amount of evidence that the drug works.
The near term prospects for PRAN include:
1. The Removal of the PCH
2. The Start of the Phase 3 trial for Pbt2 in HD
3. Partnership Agreement
Prospect number 3 above is a real possibility as we go into phase 3 trial for HD. It would result in significant up-front money, Milestone payments, the payment of all development costs going forward, and Royalties on net sales. For PRAN such a deal would launch the share price. I consider today's price a gift if these prospects become fact. Note that PRAN may partners any one of its prospects including the pre-clinical prospects Pbt434 and Pbt519 which would result in less up-front money but would take care of development costs and add milestone payments. Also note that Professor Tanzi is likely to publish the results of Pbt2 in his "brain in a dish" experiment which he wrote about in his letter to shareholders at the AGM. There is much to look forward to and the time is near!!!
