I was searching for Mike and Ana Parker from Arizona (Investors in ARTH) and found this story.

Arch Therapeutics to Provide Corporate Update at the 30th Annual Roth Conference on March 12, 2018

Drbonz, if i understood you correctly: i’m not sure if Cleveland actually posted anything we weren’t familiar with already, so probably nobody bothered to talk (or didn’t know what to add) here about things that have been repeated couple of times before. very thorough post from Cleveland, as usual, and gave us once again a reminder why we decided (or decided not) to invest in $ARTH at the first place. there were also few undisclosed points too that now were served from a bit different perspective. so if there was something in your mind, please feel free to post and… Read more Β»

$ARTH 10xow – Polyganics of the Netherlands has a surgical patch to stop bleeding. β€œIt’s applied like duct-tape on a tube,” CEO Rudy MareelΒ told me about the sealant patch. The device is applied during the operation in tandem with a liver resection or other abdominal surgical procedures. https://labiotech.eu/polyganics-breakthrough-device-fda/.
This may not have the broad application that AC-5 has, but it’s competitive and ARCH failures have given them a head start.

Agree. Not good news to have any competition out there. Much less one given a fast track FDA approval. Having said that….not sure it is in the same league as the Arch pipeline. But they need to finally leave the gate and get rolling.

I have brought up the fact that other people have patches already and this company is not the first. Doc and eyedoc said it is not the same. The liquid ac5 is better for certain types of bleeds. They thought ac5 was superior. Just FYI

Well, it’s nice to see that it seems like a relatively benign thing that needed to be addressed but it is a big disappointment that we’ll AGAIN have to wait another year or more for commercialization.

I also am disappointed about the delay. But I do believe in AC5. I’m more concerned that they will have to do another money raise now. I’m confused if this new FDA application is still only for topical applications or if this could be used internally. Any body else know? Cleveland??

The agency requested further evidence that the product does not cause sensitization in humans.
So the FDA is only looking for more evidence that it does not harm humans.

The new application is only for external use. But when AC5 is approved, surgeons can use it for internal use if they want to.
ARTH will have to do another capital raise, probably to all the same folks that have put up the money so far.

$Arch Ran across this last week but got sidetracked and thought it might be relavent to our discussion. Allergan purchased a private Australian company, Elastagen, for $95M in February. You can read about this here, http://www.elastagen.com/#news. They have several products in development that will fit very well into their Aesthetic portfolio that currently dominates with products like Botox and Juvederm. I also noticed that Elastagen also has also done significant research and development on another product, MeTro, which is a highly elastic protein based surgical sealant that would definitely compete with AC5. I can’t recall this product ever being discussed… Read more Β»

Not sure I am reading this correctly, but it appears MeTro is not clear and it takes 30-180 seconds. That would make AC5 still the winner.

AC5 will clearly control bleeding and allow surgeon a clearer field, no contest…but nothing out yet on how long and most likely will not have either the strength or elasticity that MeTro is showing on lungs, vessels and other structures inside the body where pressure control is also a factor. Last thing a surgeon wants is to close an incision only to have bleeding occur days later and have to reopen. The increased time involved still shorter than suturing. I fully admit that these 2 products are apples and oranges…but still both fruits and better than current options. Just a… Read more Β»

$ARTH – Please excuse me if I’m not in the right thread, plus this may be very old news, however, I’m going with the β€œbetter safe than sorry” excuse. β€œArch Therapeutics has filed a pre-submission with the FDA for feedback on its plan that will address FDA comments from its previous AC5 Topical Gel product 510(k) submission, according to a March 12 press release.

He’s just being a prick. He left the stock long ago. I guarantee ya he doesn’t even own a share.
I personally don’t think the science has changed. And – It is a low funded start-up biotech. Take your chances obviously.

I started thinking about re-investing in ARTH after reading the 5/8/18 ARTH press release: “Arch intends to initiate the [sensitization] study in the next few weeks incorporating FDA’s comments and ….. expects to file the 510(k) notification in the third calendar quarter of 2018………..We still expect the trial to cost approximately $100,000 and take about three months.” Doing more research, I found that Arch Therapeutics Initiated a Clinical Trial of AC5 in Europe back in December, 2015 — https://www.fdanews.com/articles/174554-arch-therapeutics-to-initiate-clinical-trial-of-ac5-in-europe .

finventurer, if ARTH begins the three-month study on skin sensitivity to settle the only remaining outstanding issue for FDA approval, does that count as an “actual action?”

$ARTH Thanks, JohnM, for the links. Your info gave me impetus to search for “ARTH CE Approval”. In their 3/12/18 press release, they stated “Arch also expects to file a CE mark in Europe for AC5 in the second half of 2018.” They have been saying they plan to apply for CE Approval every year since 2015, but they never explained why they did not file during those years. I emailed their IR department, and received this reply: “It is not approved in Europe yet but they are looking to gain the CE Mark in due course.” Not very informative… Read more Β»

hipockts, I think you are being much too negative about ARTH management. (I am very OW.) 1. They did explain why they didn’t file for a CE mark. Their manufacturer told Norchi when they would file, which Norchi repeated to investors. The manufacturer then filled out the forms for a drug filing, which is what they were used to. But AC5 is a device, so they missed their timing. Having said that, I have no idea why it has taken this long for the manufacturer to prepare the correct filing form. I suspect it was unfamiliar to them and required… Read more Β»
