    Logic points us in the direction Eteplirsen will be effective or somewhat effective, if there is enough muscle to restore in any region it penetrates, IF it is started early enough to achieve sufficient penetration and time to build dystrophin. The non ambulant boys in the new trial may give some indications of this.

    Settlement discussions on patent inteference

    My read is that UWA does not agree that settlement discussions are underway, but does agree they are discussing starting settlement agreement discussions.

    UWA --
    "more correct characterization of the status of settlement discussions is:
    24 “In accordance with SO ¶126.4, Senior Party Academisch Ziekenhuis Leiden
    25 hereby indicates that the parties are in contact with each other concerning
    26 initiating discussions directed to settling the interferences. The parties believe
    27 that a teleconference with the Administrative Patent Judge is not necessary at this
    28 time, but they will make themselves available if a conference call is requested by
    29 the APJ.” "

    Leiden --

    "“In accordance with SO ¶126.4, Senior Party Academisch Ziekenhuis Leiden
    15 hereby indicates that the parties are in contact with each other and that initial
    16 settlement discussions as provided in SO ¶ 126.2 have begun between the
    17 parties.” "

    Never underestimate the incompetence and irrationality of burecrats and politicians.

    Sarepta at one time had it's supporters in DOD, they should understand the issue.

    But they also know leaders are the one with arrows in their backs! And if the crisis does get worse in US, CDC and USAMRIID will probably come out of this with better funding than they have had for years.

    Ebola in Africa - crisis level
    Marburg in Africa
    Entrovirus in US

    Is there another shoe to drop? Is it just coincidence viral outbreaks on the ....?

    1. This does not cost the company $13 million dollars. It cost the company $1,771.00 plus some legal fees.
    2. Unless the stock is above $21.85 when these are exercised, they won't be exercised.
    3. Hopefully the majority of these are to incentivize new employess for joining company or to reward and encourage employees to stay with the company.
    4. Yes, if exercised they are dilutive. But they also could add $13 million dollars to cash position someday.

    All that said, I agree CG personally gets way to many options for his performance.

    There were past indications that the PMO+ drugs were contracted out. As I recall there may have been a PR stating an issue at a subcontractor with the PMO+ at one time or possibly it was in a transcript.
