BioTechnology HOMERUN potentials

May 01, 2010 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: CUR , DNDNQ

  I 'd bought and sold  Dendreon Corp (NASDAQ:DNDN) several times in my IRA's.  The first time I recommended DNDN here was 02/05/2009 and my start price was $3.56 ... yep, $3.56.  I rec'd DNDN because I was certain a positive outcome was close.  I closed my real world and MFool DNDN picks on 4/13/2009 @ $7.34 for a nice gain in a little over 2 months, vs the S&P's SPY,  of 104.30 %.   The next day ... the positive outcome I was expecting sent DNDN through the roof ... DNDN opened at $21.40 ... hit a intraday high of $22.1 ... and closed at $16.99. 

  Smiling, ... I'm not complaining.  I LOCKED in a gain.  Yep, I missed out on the further runs to the upside in DNDN  ... but I haven't been sitting on my hands.  My new 100 star BioTechnology pick with HOMERUN potential is  Neuralstem Inc. (CUR).   Neuralstem has studies going on in Germany and the USA for different afflictions.  Neuralstem has recently come to the attention of the press due a report (favorable) by the University Hospital at a conference in France.

Thanks for your reply ragedmaximus.  

  I agree with you ... I don't think DNDN has finished its run.   There may be MUCH, much more to the treatment of different cancers with Dendreon's biotechnology ... so this may very well just be the tip of the iceberg.  

 If the FDA authorizes new studies for additional different cancer afflictions ... then I'll buy more DNDN.  The FDA is not going to authorize new studies .. unless  Dendreon submits a request ... and the request will tell us what cancer type(s) DNDN is looking at, the potential number of patients (target market), and we can then calculate the potential positives to DNDN's bottom line,

UM researcher to test stem cell treatment for Alzheimer's

Results from ALS trials spur optimism
By Ryan Beene And Tom Henderson

Buoyed by early results of stem cell-based trials on patients with Lou Gehrig's disease, Eva Feldman, M.D., co-director of the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute at the University of Michigan Medical School, is now taking aim at a far bigger target: Alzheimer's disease.

In late April, Feldman began raising $1.5 million from private donors to fund animal trials for a stem cell-based treatment of Alzheimer's, a progressive degenerative disease that severely impacts brain function and afflicts more than 5.3 million people in the U.S. It is the seventh-leading cause of death in the nation.
