    UCLA license--SYN's response

    Well, it's about all of them: the patents, the license agreement and the amendments. The way I've always read it, and still do, pertains to these statements:

    Through our wholly owned subsidiary, we hold the ** exclusive worldwide license ** to U.S. Patent 8,372,826 and 6,936,599 and pending patents for multiple sclerosis ** and other autoimmune diseases ** covering the uses of its drug candidate, Trimesta™.

    Bullet point 1 in Amendment 4 states: “1.4 The ‘Field of Use’ means human therapeutics for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, ** including ** multiple sclerosis.” (ie., not excluding any other autoimmune diseases) Essentially, this statement expanded the scope of the license agreement, not limited it.

    So, if the referenced patents and their citations and continuations cover all automimmune (it does) and SYN's exclusive worldwide license covers all autoimmune (it does) and Amendment 4 verbatim includes MS, all autoimmune diseases, and does not verbatim exclude any other automimmune, then the Venn diagram says that SYN owns worldwide exclusive rights to all autoimmune diseases.

    In the 2007 patent # WO2007038636 A2, claims 2 & 3 are pretty broad, and all of the later patents cross reference or provide a continuation of this one. From every 8K & 10K I've read, SYN has the rights to all of the estriol neurodegenerative related patents.

    2. The method of claim 1 wherein the neurodegenerative disease is selected from the group comprising: Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, frontotemporal dementia, prion disease, Huntington's Disease.

    3. The method of claim 1 wherein the neurodegenerative disease is selected from the group including cerebral ischaemia, idiopathic Morbus Parkinson, Parkinson syndrome, Morbus Alzheimers, cerebral dementia syndrome, infectious- induced neurodegeneration disorders, metabolic-toxic neurodegenerative disorders, encephalopathies induced by solvents or pharmaceuticals, degenerative retina disorders, traumatically-induced brain damage, traumatically-induced bone marrow damage, cerebral hyperexcitability symptoms, cerebral hyperexcitability states, neurodegenerative syndromes of the peripheral nervous system, peripheral nerve injury, and spinal cord injury.

    Well said, friend. I take anything I hear in the mainstream media with a grain of salt and (try to) do my own research, although factual information without spin is getting harder to find. With regard to voter fraud, with the advent of Diebold (especially since that little basement incident in Ohio a few years ago), mail in voting, and Faux announcing the clearly preordained winner while votes are still being counted, I have very little belief in the voting process any more. I live in Washington where all we have now is mail in voting, and I have absolutely no way to ensure that my vote was counted.

    This stock has always had issues holding gains. One would think with the tight float then, and even tighter float now, it wouldn't swing 33% back and forth so easily. I've observed manipulative behavior on the level 2 many times with SYN, so I assume that's part of it. I think everybody with a lick of research chops has seen the potential in Rhonda's work for 5 or 6 years now. Kanzer clearly saw it earlier than that, and then Jeff saw it (through his Ruga buddy at UCLA?), and Jeff somehow got it to Kirk's ear, and Kirk reallllllly saw the potential. I personally feel like estriol is clearly not just a treatment for MS, but also a de-facto cure for pretty much all of the neurodegenerative syndromes since it rebuilds the myelin sheath. We know it's safe, it's been used in Europe for 45 years now for other symptoms. It's just a matter of quantifying the results through the scientific method, and then waiting for the highest bidder that wants to have a recurring revenue stream from every person with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, MS, Fibromyalgia, ALS being treated for the rest of their lives with a safe, natural substance.

    I also believe that is why the MS results were played down, and the data release was worded so terribly. They weren't ready to partner yet, and didn't want shareholders suing for shareholder value demanding partnership. And if you've seen my analyses here regarding what the estriol patents are worth to Teva, since it will allow them to fight generics and extend their patents on their $4B annual MS drug for 7 to 13 years, you'll see that if we could resist Teva's (what should have been) a $50/share offer, we're likely looking at $100+ a share. I'm not crazy, I'm not pie in the sky, I've done my market analysis on what the value of these patents are worth if they parcel them out: Teva gets the MS rights for $4B (their annual MS revenues for one year), company B gets the Alzheimers rights for maybe $2B, etc

    All IMHO, as a statistician/analyst.

    I'm not sure capitalism works so well, either. Of course, it works for the folks at the top, much like every other -ism, but it leaves a huge part of the population to suffer. Vox populi. Just another Grand Experiment.

    Hi Gizmo, I get that there will always be those people that can afford it and will opt to go somewhere that they perceive is better care. I'm not sure why they would opt to fly to Florida rather than look for a private provider in Canada (other than the fact that they might be snowbirds anyway). Or perhaps the Laser Spine Institute is world class, so they could afford to go wherever they need to, to seek out the best provider. But even at my HMO, I have to wait weeks for appointments sometimes, and I have waited months for certain specialists after I get my referral.

    In the big picture, is an HMO any different than socialized healthcare? We have limited choice in-network, you pay a lot more for out of network care, and many formularies are not even covered (death panels). The only difference I can see is that the CEO of the HMO makes $10M a year rather than $150K on a government pay scale. The best doctors in their class anywhere will opt for a private practice, and the average med students will go to work for the HMO/government. There are always health options outside the government provided/HMO provided options. A rose by any other name still has thorns.

    25 years in the investing/trading game and I still can't stomach shorting. Buying phantom shares with limited gain potential, and infinite loss potential if they decide to halt and release amazing news before you can cover. Ouch. Ring ring, it's margin calling.

    And yet, a jagged alternative was Mitt Romney's Massachusetts model? There's all kinds of hatred from both red and blue citizens over that plan.

    DonQ, just to remind, Mitt is a republican that implemented a mandate to buy healthcare, much like that Demagogacrat you keep mentioning. Same manure, different party.

    Just for fun, ask your Canadian and Mexican friends (actually, your friends is most any country other than the U.S.) how much it cost to have their wisdom teeth removed in their home countries. Also ask how much their generic Propofol (diprivan) cost them. Pinko socialists. Murkah!

    The fact that they haven't implemented a flat rate tax tells me they don't want to fix the problem. 2013 total taxes paid were about $1 trillion. If we had a 10% flat rate tax, and our net national income last year was $14 trillion. If everyone INCLUDING CORPORATIONS paid just 10%, the take last year would have been 1.4 trillion, or 40% more, without all of the overhead of a zillion IRS accountants to navigate the tax law, and without all of the ulcers developed by good, hardworking honest people on April 14th.

    If you can find it, watch "Zeitgeist". I certainly don't agree with everything, but there are some very good fact-based points made in the movie.

    Come come now, Don, I know you're more intelligent and open minded than that. How can you be angry at people that are living below the poverty line getting some assistance? I wholeheartedly disagree with a lifetime on the dole, but everyone goes through rough times. That's the purpose of a nation, to ensure that it's citizens can continue to be happy and productive. I've never met anyone that wanted to live forever on government cheese and having their life under a microscope. It can't be as big a problem as someone would like us to believe.

    On the other hand, we have fat cats and corporate personage paying less than 1% taxes through loopholes, oil companies not paying what they agreed to pay for oil drilling leases without repercussion, punitive damages paid to Justice department not going to the injured parties, we have certain wealthy folks getting a special Madoff Deduction because they lost money just like most everyone else in 2008, farmers (who I bet are mostly conservative salt of the earth folk) receiving farm subsidies (gasp! handouts!!!), conservative televangelists not paying taxes on the mansions that were bought with faithful donations, we could go on all day.

    At the end of the day, it's all spin, our tax dollars are not being spent as the majority would like and a lot of people would like a big change, but it is not going to come from a billionaire trust fund baby or a gladhanded lifetime politician being elected to represent the "common man". Nope, not even Sarah Palin or Johnny Wet Start Bomb Bomb Iran McCain would make Joe the Plumber's life better. Maybe a one time $500 stimulus check or somesuch nonsense, but I can almost guarantee that $500 will/did end up costing $1000 somehow.

    tldr: Stop being a part of the divisive problem, parties don't matter.

    I don't think dems or repubs want anything to change. You're focusing on voting blocs and getting elected; that's all hot air and empty promises. Actions are the only true measure, and regardless of who is in office, any changes that have occurred over (at a minimum) the last 50 years benefit corporations and the 1% (used to be 5%). We remain overtaxed, corporations exploit tax loopholes, social security is no longer secure, college costs have gone up every year for decades, we're in a perpetual war, unemployment barely moves from year to year, race tension ebbs and flows depending on what is featured on the news that week, there is no point in choosing a side in this divisive reality show. With the 2 party system, 99% of us lose. Not sure 3 party would be much better. We'll just have to see what happens with the advent of the NAU and the Amero.

    Question: based on the history of the last 30 years or so, what do you honestly expect to change regardless of which party wins the next election? Something will get repealed, something else will get enacted, 50% of the country gets angry, 50% of the country is temporarily happy, then lather, rinse, repeat.

    On the topic of racetogether, what an idiotic, ridiculous idea. I live in Seattle and normally avoid their bitter bean, but I had to go see how Howard's lunatic notion was going. Here's how it went:
    ..............
    Because in the Starbucks, 100% of the baristas and 30 patrons I observed were all... wait for it... causacian. So as you can guess, there was an abundance of throat clearing, nervous laughing, anxiety and discomfort. My take? Just one more effort to keep us all divided. Remember the Tower of Babel story? If we all speak the same language, we can accomplish great things. If we are divided, we are limited. So left/right, black/white, American/Mexican, male/female, old/young, Christian/Muslim, blue collar/white collar, rich/poor, pick your paradigm and continue being part of the problem. When they quit talking about what divides us, things will change, but I don't think that's on the 1%'s agenda. Just sayin'

    By the way, regarding "free land": back in my analyst days, I (while bored one day) calculated a generous average daily allowance per citizen of healthy fruits, vegetables and meat (if so inclined). I then multiplied that daily number by 365 days, then by 350 million citizens. I then determined crop/butcher yields of 50 different grains, fruits, veggies, chickens, cows, hogs and sheep, I then did the research and calculated the square miles needed to support the total annual requirements +25% for growth. The area required was only the size of Nebraska. So since Nebraska is 50 million acres and the US is 2.2 billion acres, even subtracting for unusable land, you can see the fallacies that a) we can't be self sustaining and b) the federal government actually requires the control of the 650 million acres that it currently controls.

    Since I'm now on the topic of fallacies, do an internet search for Volkswagen XL1 and then ask yourself if there's not a concerted effort to keep oil prices artificially high. Also, watch "Who Killed the Electric Car". Caution: You'll be angry.

    Not sure why that's a surprise, we were already being forced to buy auto & home insurance and pay property taxes even after everything is paid off. Homesteading is a distant memory. My feeling on "socialism" is it's just a negative label to make patriotic Americans think that being raped by the healthcare industry and carrying 100K+ in college loans is preferable to having free healthcare & university, because you have choice! When honestly, you have choice anywhere, even in "socialist" countries, because you still have the option to pay for a perceived higher quality of care or education somewhere else if you really want to, but if you can't afford it, you still have the government provided care. Here, you have to meet some arbitrary poverty line to have anything provided to you, which by the way you've already paid for with your tax dollars. It's not a handout. At least socialists get something for their tax dollars. We get war and and higher prices.

    Agreed. And for that, we can thank the Nixon administration, when Tricky #$%$ signed bill S.14 into law on December 29, 1973, as the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973. "It provided grants and loans to provide, start, or expand a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO); removed certain state restrictions for federally qualified HMOs; and * required * employers with 25 or more employees to offer federally certified HMO options IF they offered traditional health insurance to employees. It did not require employers to offer health insurance. The Act solidified the term HMO and gave HMOs greater access to the employer-based market."

    But again, I don't believe in left/right, just spin. The bill would have become law under anyone else's watch, I'm certain.

    I don't really buy into the left/right paradigm. I think it's the same old story told with different spin no matter who is in the oval office and who controls Congress. At the end of the day it's status quo from administration to administration, which is essentially military spending and corporate greed draining the coffers. Reagan = covert war. Bush = overt war. Clinton = bombings & troops in Afghanistan, Sudan & Kosovo. Bush 2 = beginning of never ending war on nebulous non-state affiliated targets. Obama = failed promises to end war. Next up: Bush-Clinton: the Sequel. If I had to guess, whoever Diebold decides will win, I suspect we'll end up at war with Iran first, then Russia will join in, then we'll just cross our fingers that China will be capitalist enough by then to stay busy with their SUV's and booming investment portfolios. And us? We'll be watching the latest reality hit, in which Honey Boo Boo gets a sex change operation (on live TV!) and marries both Kim Kardashian AND Paris Hilton in a ceremony officiated by Secretary of Morality Mitt Romney. (Hint: there's early Emmy talk...)
