    Who is the Sponsor and where is this Webcast? I would like to see it. Probably wouldn't hurt to send a copy of it to the journalists if that's part of our complaint.

    I think the sponsor was Hemispherx. I don't know if the webcast was posted.

    I don't think it was...weren't the circuits (or whatever you call 'em) overloaded, so portions of the webcast went down several times?

    I have a feeling the decision has been made, and it's not a good one. Perhaps people should be swamping Hemipherx with emails rather than the FDA?

    Well, I'd like them to be more honest in the future. They've had a terrible track record when it comes to being open and honest with the public and with patients -- lying in June 2009 suggesting that the FDA was close to approving Ampligen is just one example of many. They've implied they didn't have enough funds to run a new trial that the FDA asked for three years ago, even though the stock went up from something like 30 cents to over 4 DOLLARS in June of that year. There are records of the executives selling their own shares of Hemispherx stock -- something that would only cause the stock to go down -- why did they not BUY more stock? On and on and on...

    I hope Bob will reconsider and stop his hunger strike, for his own sake.

    Certainly Hemispherx is in hot water as they are dealing with investors's class action suit. I really wish we were a credible illness and that a respectable (and rich) pharma company to do drug development, clinical trials and get drugs approved at long last!
