written by reader Biotron Chat Room

April 7, 2014

This discussion is designed to run parallel with the Dr KSS’s article ’Another Hot Australian Biotech: Is Biotron Right for Your Portfolio?’ http://www.stockgumshoe.com/2014/04/microblog-another-hot-australian-biotech-is-biotron-right-for-your-portfolio/ and serves to provide a free general chat room. With luck it will stop the main thread becoming so cluttered with (while often v interesting), random/off topic/thank you posts. If the strategy doesn’t work/appeal, it can easily be ignored/ditched without affecting the main thread. GLA

Warner, I saw that no-one answered your question about only having an older version of MS Office, and being unable to access clomu’s calendar. I was in the same boat – Win 7, older s/w and no fancy pads, pods or other smart stuff. If you are still interested, here’s how I got it using free outlook.com from MS 1) copy the url that clomu provided at #667 on the NASH thread 2) search for outlook.com 3) open an account 4) click the down arrow to the right of outlook.com 5) select calendar-this opens a new calendar 6) click import… Read More »

I’m in. Anyone have a feeling about investing in AGIO. It had a 25% pop today after the report last week on phase 1 results that report total remission in few AML patients, some that are prior treatment failures. Great science. A highly targeted drug going after the basic way a tumor cell metabolizes sugar due to the presence of a mutation in the Krebs cycle, which is responsible for basic sugar metabolism. The drug is oral and theoretically may avoid many side effects present in other therapies. These are early results with only a few pt.s reported. The side… Read More »

Alan, could you correct this – lay out how you want us to use the threads, and post once on all the threads so we can point new comers in the right direction? BTW, thank you for all you do here. I like the thought of getting folks to cough up the 49.00 bucks for Travis – we wouldn’t be here without him.

Thanks Bradley. First off, its NOT ‘what I want’. We are a democracy, so it can only be what WE agree we want. First, lets look at the problems (as I see them). KSS is THE focus of most questions/replies……his workload/inbox must be exhausting and over time, it can only get worse. Add that to his day job/personal life needs/time to research/eat/sleep, and there’s a real danger his head will explode and he’ll sling in the towel (just my guess…..he may see it differently). Is that a risk we want to take? Many people have complained that the old threads… Read More »

Hi Allan … nice to meet you…… if I may make a suggestion maybe it would be a good idea to setup a stockwatch list of all the key companies that we discuss and research here.. just the basic info and pros and cons .. maybe even put a rating system on them (ex , great, good, average, bad, stinker)… just a thought. Cheers

I just answered an Email on Biotron main thread from Kenny….it read like this:
OK Kenny…..perhaps thats the answer. Just have KSS’s article/s (with no ability for anyone to post there) and one GIANT thread (If Travis can allow) for ALL comments so that we can ctrlF anything specific that we are interested in. That would actually solve everything……..except the download time. A small price to pay for total search engine with no cracks.

Anyone wanna salute that flag?

Then went on to say: I certainly wasn’t joking….it occurred to me ages ago but I kept seeing complaints about download time on Holy Grail so waived it away. But it really is THE solution. It provides a way to create your own focused sub thread from within the one giant thread …..bit like google searching the whole internet for references to lumpy willies….if only GS could produce 1.7 grillion results in a nano second !!….and nothing avoids the attention of the great search engines all seeing eye…. so no cracks to fall through. However long, the download time is,… Read More »

Would this be in addition to all the other threads so discussions could go on as normal? In other words, there would be one huge thread, but the other threads would still exist for discussion?

Thats my plan….simply to get Travis to cc every post on a KSS thread, to the giant database (in fact it must already exist if GS is storing historic posts). Then you can ctrlF. The original threads will continue as is, in glorious technicolour chaos.
It will also work for other authors like Myrons mining or indeed you can ctrlF Alan and see ALL of by wonderful offerings if you need a sleeping tablet.
Lets hope Travis can do it. It sounds easy.

So I am assuming that Crtl. F does not work on a Mac.
Nothing happens. Any ideas anyone. Command may be
different on a Mac. Don’t know. MY girls got me on Mac
laptop and I am just barely figuring it out. Thank you for any help.

I’m in. Waiting on the download is worth the time and effort considering how much we have all learned and shared since being on biard. Love that spreadsheet! Love that calendar!

clomu, not sure what your criteria are for a calendar entry. Do any/all of the following upcoming FDA events belong on your calendar? Each has been mentioned if not analyzed on one of the KSS threads

I couldn’t find a date for ICPT OCA Phase 2. Maybe you could post the link for this one? All I could find was “July 2014”:

http://www.biopharmcatalyst.com/fda-calendar/ – but I cannot confirm on a second site. I think 7/31 should be interpreted to mean sometime in Q2. I will keep looking
