Phase 3 Data Supporting Rayaldee(TM) As a Treatment for Secondary Hyperparathyroidism in Chronic Kidney Disease to be Presented at NKF 2015 Spring Clinical Meetings
MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- OPKO Health, Inc. (NYSE: OPK), today announced the presentation of additional phase 3 clinical data in a poster at the National Kidney Foundation's Spring Clinical Meetings on March 27-28th, 2015 in Dallas, Texas, that will include data for 429 patients completing up to twelve months of treatment in OPKO's phase 3 trials for Rayaldee as a treatment for secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in patients with stage 3 or 4 chronic kidney disease (CKD) and vitamin D insufficiency. The data to be presented will highlight the unexpected finding that responses to Rayaldee treatment are as good in patients with stage 4 CKD as they are in stage 3 CKD. The data support the conclusion that Rayaldee effectively controls SHPT through the correction of vitamin D insufficiency irrespective of CKD severity.
OPKO's poster presentation is entitled: "Modified-Release Calcifediol Is Effective for SHPT in Both Stages 3 and 4 CKD."
Session details: March 27-28, No. 156; Category: CKD/ESRD-Mineral Metabolism and Kidney Stones.
Nice.... it's how I've made money for 30 years. First investment was Phillip M. .... before baby bios traded
At least this bio we always have a big insider buying us up. My other bios not so much
For some reason it doesn't bother me when OPK sells off a little... like some of the other baby bio's med co's I own.
The ole Dr doesn't think it's priced in as he's still buying. As long as he keeps buying the PPS will keep rising. I wonder if he'll slow his buying once past the 50% mark. I doubt it
The pre action started very early this a.m. I always like looking at the pre markets, this is when your criminals come out to buy
May be a crazy concept but! I bet Frost would or has explored the idea. What if he did have a public fund composed of his investments or companies. Heck, if he's buying gold or alcohol why wouldn't he have his own fund.
I'd buy it unlike buying everything he owns directly or individually. Ok, maybe it's time for some beers
As a hedge I'd rather see him open a Frost fund on the open market like the Berkshire Hathaway fund... where you could buy one fund and own everything Frost man owns..... I'm 100% on board with Opko but some of these other investments I almost feel like, well... I drink beer so I'm going to buy a small Ohio beer distillery. That's just me but I do agree with most of Frosts investments. Not all of his will pay out and some are just playing around. I drink the kool ade but only on the med device baby bio side of the punch
He's much smarter man than I but personally I'd rather see him in the oil space somehow rather than gold. Now that's an investment perhaps for his legacy not himself
I agree totally, I can't even believe this made it into the court system. Our court system and congress are the only things we need to fix in the US. Other than that it's the best place on earth
Stay Thirsty my friends
I say we're going to see another big pharma press release tomorrow of a buyout of a baby bio. Seems much of the baby bio space is jumping today. Last three years a day or two before a major merger or buyout offer, all the baby's wake up and spit out green in the color of money
OPK, giddy up!
Outstanding truth skin. I've preached this to investors in my world for years. I made my money by holding for 12 months or longer. Minus opk which I've held much longer. Learned the hard way about short term gains. Good post.... here since 3 and waiting til buyout
