Never Ask Us if We're Hungry -- The Answer's Always No
There are three of us here and for many years, none of us ever got hungry. When our brains would turn to mush, when our faces would go numb, and we would start the invisible vibration which is the signature dance of ME/CFS, we knew we needed to eat.

    Holy crap! That's terrible. Now trading at 0.368. The video attached to your article above is worth a listen, thanks Danny. Looks like that FDA briefing document was really taken to heart. That has to reduce the chances of approval significantly.

    Yeah...even though I was never holding my breath (at least in this case)...IHMO that's really bad news, and from what I read of the FDA document last night, it seems like they're really pissed at the way the Hemispherx may have withheld information about adverse effects, removed like 20 or so patients from the original analysis to make the outcomes look better, etc..

    I feel bad for the folks who were/are helped by ampligen, like Mary Schweitzer...

    I never read the release Danny so I can't comment on that although enough was said I think about their last attempt at re-analysis of data at the time. If the FDA review panel approve - then I think stockholders will have cause to complain if the release is as dire as it appears. Always was a very speculative investment and the performance is no guide necessarily to the likely outcome - except - I think in this instance; in probably is. There is also the expense of this drug, and the uncertainty surrounding what exactly it actually does that can possibly be seen as part and parcel of CFS. I don't think enough has been done to try and discover how Ampligen might be working - and why it only appears to help some people. Anyway, today's the day. We shall have to wait and see.
