  • For the past three years the annual meeting was held weeks after ASCO's annual meeting. This year it's oddly scheduled to occur just days prior to ASCO.

    The meeting location was also changed from where it has been held for the past three years. This year it will be at Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, NJ. For the previous three years it was held at the offices of Lowenstein Sandler in Roseland, NJ.

    Why meet just days before ASCO? Why meet at a hotel this year? Are these changes from prior practice good, bad or neutral?

    Frank, it had better be one hell of an offer otherwise I'll be disappointed. Do you have an estimate about offer price?

    I'm going to vote my shares against the BOD.

    Too late. I voted against the BOD and against management's compensation. A message needs to be sent to them. Of course the majority will approve, but I hope a strong minority sends a signal that there had better be some major developments soon.

    The company does not pre-announce earnings releases unless there will be a conference call. The earnings release is simply promulgated on a surprise day of management's choosing unless one week prior management has announced the date of the conference call associated with an earnings release.

    Most of the racism in America is perpetrated and perpetuated by the Left because it keeps them in power. The most insidious and divisive racism in America almost always comes from the Left.

  • If Sterling is going to be banned for life from the NBA -- a punishment that I think is grossly overdone for private comments in his private residence that were surreptitiously recorded and leaked -- then John Kerry ought to be banned from serving as Secretary of State for his Israel apartheid comments, which were made publicly and expressed his policy judgment about Israel.

  • The Democrat Party would love nothing more than to see American cities erupt in fiery, bloody, destructive clashes along racial lines.

    Rather, it is the race baiters like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee who grandstand and fan the flames of racial resentment whenever blacks are slighted. They make mountains out of molehills because they profit monetarily, in fame and in influence by doing so.

    Sterling is a wealthy fool whose private conversation was leaked to his embarrassment. Too much has been made of it because the likes of people I mentioned above, who are tools for the Democrat Party and the liberal media, have a personal and ideological interest in milking it for all its worth just as many of them did with Trayvon Martin.

    Where is the national and media outrage over Benghazi or Fast and Furious or IRS targeting conservative groups? Oh, right... Obama says those are PHONY scandals, unlike Sterling's private conversation with his mistress.

    I would have nothing to say about Sterling were it not for his recorded conversation being blown so out of proportion. I don't care about that loser. I do care about my country and how it is being destroyed by the Left.

    I harbor no racial bigotry. There are two races: the decent and the indecent, and people of all skin colors belong to each. Many on the Left belong to the indecent race, in my judgment.

    Everyone in the world was convinced that Iraq had WMDs, even the Clinton administration.

    I just thank God the moron Al Gore wasn't president when the U.S. was attacked on 9/11 because our foreign policy would have been just as bumbling as Obama's is, and America probably would have suffered more devastating attacks. GWB put the terrorists on the run, but Obama is now emboldening them with his weakness and appeasement.

    If I point out that a large number of blacks are uncivilized and leeches on society, that's not racist because I'm not saying it's inherent in the DNA of black people; I'm not saying that black people are naturally or inherently inferior to any other race. What I am saying is that there are forces in black CULTURE by which they self-organize themselves into collectives based on their skin color and mutually reinforce poor habits of character that keep them in their deplorable circumstances. That's not racism; it's sociological truth. People like you can't distinguish between comments directed at nature and comments directed at culture. I direct my comments at the latter; they are sociological.

    The Democrat Party would love it because then it could make appeals that voters support them in order to "fix" what it had largely helped to cause. Democrats cause division and then propose themselves as the solution to the damage they cause. It's all for the sake of gaining and holding onto political power. Only the stupid, the envious, the leftist ideological purists (Marxists), and the white elites (who aren't affected much by leftist legislation that harms so much of the rest of the country) support the Democrat Party.

    It is indeed the fault of blacks themselves that 70% of their children are born illegitimate and grow up in impoverished single-parent homes that often lack the disciplining and stabilizing influence of a good father. Nobody but blacks themselves decide to engage in the immoral behavior that leads to their own impoverishment. That's not the result of societal racism; it's the inferiority and self-destructiveness of black culture.

    It is indeed the fault of blacks themselves that they have created a culture in which improving yourself is derogatively referred to as "acting white". Nobody but blacks themselves decide to apply that social pressure that perpetuates their own impoverishment and hurts the chances of young black kids at escaping their plight. That's not the result of societal racism; it's the inferiority and self-destructiveness of black culture.

    It is indeed the fault of blacks themselves that they blindly vote in percentages over 90% for Democrat candidates who have been large on promises and rhetoric and short on actual improvements for the black demographic. In every city that has been controlled by Democrats, blacks are worse off than they were. Black unemployment is higher under Obama's policies. Blacks are indeed on a plantation: the Democrat Plantation. Any black that attempts to free the new slaves by explaining how much better conservative policies would be for blacks is called an Uncle Tom.

    Blacks do it all to themselves.

    And if the race war erupts, there will be no new Martin Luther King, Jr. to quell the violence because the Left has succeeded in nearly eliminating Christianity as a force for moral good in this country. Martin Luther King, Jr. could appeal to the shared Christian faith of white and black people in the 1960s; that man was a saint for preventing a racial civil war, and he did it through the Christian faith that he shared with many of his fellow citizens. Now, if a new race war erupts, it will probably have to be stopped by a totalitarian action of government, and the Democrat Party would love to have a hand in stripping people of even more individual liberty under the pretense of securing the peace and protecting the common good. There is a reason why the Left is stoking racial tension and failing to secure the southern border: the Left wants to crush the liberty of American citizens and make the federal government all-powerful.

  • whippersnapper65 whippersnapper65 May 1, 2014 2:53 AM Flag

    You are an example of the type of totalitarian that imperils America and whom the Founding Fathers would have detested.

    Martin Luther King, Jr. would probably be a Republican today, if he were alive. That's what I believe. And he would lament how the policies of the Left have decimated black families and impoverished blacks across the whole country.

    BHO's lies were a blatant attempt to save his chances at winning reelection. The ignorant, the stupid, and the willfully blind voted for BHO anyway even though people with intelligence and clarity of vision could see that the White House was misleading the country with that stupid red herring about the video.

  • CLDX is remarkably prolific and daring for a development-stage biotech: spending $30 million in the 1Q. Marucci is operating with extremely high confidence in attaining commercial success by 2016 and having a second wave of commercial approvals waiting in the wings for soon afterward. He's certainly not being sparing with the company cash.

  • whippersnapper65 whippersnapper65 May 1, 2014 10:21 AM Flag

    I agree. Marucci wouldn't be spending at this rate unless he was confident that he could get a cash infusion from a partnership, if needed, nor unless he was extremely confident in commercial success.

  • Tell me whether this is new; it seems new to me.

    Regarding Group 2C (the confirmatory group in ReACT, n=up to 73), Celldex stated in the release today, "evidence of anti-tumor activity in the first 23 patients will trigger full completion of enrollment to this arm of the study." 23 patients also just happens to also be the expected enrollment in that group by year's end.

    Why would management mention that the expected year-end enrollment number (23) is identical to the number (23) that would complete enrollment IF THE FIRST 23 PATIENTS SHOW EVIDENCE OF ANTI-TUMOR ACTIVITY? That's quite a conditional statement to make.

    Management seems to be strongly implying that it expects to see evidence of anti-tumor activity in the first 23 enrolled patients, thus it would not be necessary to enroll the full 73 patients in the confirmatory group. They must be seeing impressive efficacy in the patients that have been treated so far, and by that I mean 100% evidence of anti-tumor activity so far, which would make them confident enough to state a conditional about closing enrollment early, as they did in the press release.

    What do the rest of you think?

    Here is the full relevant text from today's release:

    "Celldex continues to enroll patients with recurrent GBM in ReACT, a Phase 2 study that includes patients both naive and refractory to Avastin(R). Enrollment to Group 1 (n=70 Avastin-naive patients) and enrollment of at least the first 23 patients in Group 2C (n=up to 73 Avastin-refractory patients) is expected to be completed by year-end 2014. (Group 2C is designed as a two-stage cohort; evidence of anti-tumor activity in the first 23 patients will trigger full completion of enrollment to this arm of the study). Updated data from the study will be presented by year-end 2014."

    If that's true, then that plus Franklin Resources increasing its holdings is more evidence that this whole takedown in the share price has been orchestrated by institutions for the purpose of acquiring more shares on the cheap. Institutions have done their due diligence, and they know that CLDX is going to be the next major biotech powerhouse. Easily a ten-bagger from this price, perhaps a twenty-bagger eventually.

    Can you imagine the increase in PPS that would result if management announced later this year that Group 2C in ReACT was being stopped early because the first 23 patients enrolled all showed evidence of anti-tumor effects? That would be tantamount to saying that Rindo is ~100% effective in improving patient prognosis in an indication where no other treatment has been successful.
