    Thanks to @shahida for alerting me to this.

    K-PAX Pharmaceuticals Inc. are in the Chase Mission Main Street charity voting contest and say:

    I believe they're referring to the Synergy Trial of KPAX 002, a combination of an immune modulator with methylphenidate (ritalin). Their Product Pipeline page says:

    You can vote from anywhere in the world.

    To vote (you must have a Facebook account), go here:

    https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/52189

    They've got 8 votes so far. They need 250 unique votes by Oct 17 (argh, Friday!) to be in with a shot at $150,000.

    So, vote once, you're done! Thereafter, it's up to a panel of judges.

    Let's get voting!

    243 votes now - either the 8 votes I saw earlier was some weirdness or we really have made over 230 votes in the last six hours.

    So I think we're only 7 votes shy now of getting them into the next round! :thumbsup:

    Voted - 253 votes. Is it worth getting more?

    Sasha, Have those 250 votes been checked for irregularities? If not, it might not hurt to get some more votes in just in case there should be some irregular votes, which could be disqualified. The vote count is at 255 right now.

    That's a very good point. I thought it felt weird not to be encouraging people to keep voting - it gave me a very uncomfortable feeling! So yes, good idea, let's get some more votes on there for good measure.

    It's very easy anyway, took me 20 seconds (once I stopped procrastinating) :thumbsup:

    I got an email from them on Sunday saying they had 75 votes to go so seems like there's been an upsurge!

    It says 267 now so I think it's just going to keep accumulating votes until Friday.

    Bit of a weird one! Haven't seen this format before.
