Thanks so much for the kind comments and support friends.
Yes, Cort, I just don't have a category in my mind for this drug NOT being approved. It's been way too long, and the Ampligen story with the FDA over the past 20 years reads like something told around a camp fire in a third world nation. It's like the 3 Stooges wrote the script: never funny, and someone is always getting knocked in the head. "Paging Doctor Howard, Doctor Fine, Doctor Howard!"
But I am convinced things are turning around, and that the horizon for the approval process is much brighter. I have heard a number of rumors and anecdotes from nurses and doctors involved with Ampligen about what Hemispherx is up to lately in that regard, and have confirmed about half of them. I am aching to report here on Phoenix Rising what I've heard, but in two specific cases I have been asked not to publish anything on the record for a few more weeks. As soon as I can get these folks "on the record" you'll be the first to know.
Marlene, I don't know anything about the stock market these days, and am not sure even the "experts" do either! But it just makes sense that when a drug is approved, that stock goes up, no? So maybe you will get "healthy" one day in both ways to which you referred.
